Loon Lake, WA
The Loon Lake Historical Society was formed to celebrate the town and state centennials -- and was later very influential in saving the Old Schoolhouse. While preparing for the centennials, many old photos were copied and identified. This was the start of our photo collection. We realized then how important saving the history of the area was and how fast the accurate records and family histories were disappearing.

Spokane, WA
A Faith and Non-Faith Community Space. SpokaneFāVS, an online religion news publication, opened the FāVS Center in June, 2019 after it was gifted a building and 3-acres on Spokane’s South Hill. The SpokaneFāVS board agreed that using the property to foster interfaith dialogue would enhance the organization’s mission to create community engagement opportunities.

No other city in Washington, and perhaps in the U.S., can boast having an interfaith community center. We envision the space to be a neutral one where people of all faiths, and non faiths, can gather for a variety of reasons including retreats, classes, forums, prayer, worship, meetings and, of course, for the noted SpokaneFāVS Coffee Talks.
