Along with five other people, actually.
I mean, I knew he was on the boards of many an engineering and/or performing arts organization here in the Seattle area. I just didn't realize he was that big a deal. He's... well, he's Dad, you know?

And given that, and all the things he does around the community (with the Museum of Flight, the Young Eagles, and a vast assortment of other organizations; he says he flunked retirement and I believe it), he was honored with an award last night, in a very touching ceremony complete with videos, along with those five other people, all for various accomplishments in and around the community, the city, and the world.
They're an impressive bunch, and the program was amazing.
And food (Salmon=yum!). And the venue (Four Seasons Hotel).
And hey, Laston managed the entire evening, although he's tired out today. I count that was a win, too.
