Thank you for celebrating Washington State Magazine’s 10th anniversary

We want to thank everyone who joined us to celebrate Washington State Magazine’s first 10 years of telling great stories about the WSU community. We had a great reception on October 14 recognizing the many alumni, faculty, and staff who make the magazine possible.

At the Terrell Library atrium, we heard a canjo performance from John Elwood '01, drank wine donated by Cougars, ate excellent cheeses from the WSU Creamery, and heard from editor Tim Steury, the creamery's Russ Salvadalena, former Hilltopics editor Pat Caraher, and former PowWow (WSU's past alumni magazine) editor Dick Fry. Guests also sampled WA 5 apples, a new cultivar developed by WSU researchers and graciously donated by the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission.

We would like to thank the wineries and the Washington Tree Fruit Research Commission for their donations, WSU music student Charles Wicklander for playing piano, our guest speakers, catering services, and all those who helped us with the reception.

Galleries of photography, writing, and illustrations from the first ten years of Washington State Magazine were on display, which you can view here.

You can also watch a slideshow from the anniversary reception below. Photos by Matt Haugen, WSU News Service.
