Washington Museum Association Honors CWB with Awards

July 7, 2010

The Center for Wooden Boats has received two awards  from the Washington Museum Association.

The Working Group at Lake Union Park (which CWB has helped lead) received the 2010 Awards of Project Excellence. Happily, there were representatives from Northwest Seaport, Discovery Modelers, Puget Sound Maritime Historical Society, MOHAI and CWB on hand to accept the award together. The award recognizes the Working Group “for its contributions toward raising the profile and improving the image of Seattle’s maritime history” and describes the group as “a significant model of achievement through partnering with neighboring institutions.”

Dick Wagner received the 2010 Award of Individual Excellence. He was recognized for “his exceptional accomplishments in facilitating the creation of The Center for Wooden Boats…His leadership has ensured that a new generation of leaders, volunteers, and staff will continue to provide the community with a fun, hands-on culture and heritage experience at the water’s edge. He is an inspiratino to heritage organizations throughout Washington State.”
