Olympia Social and Awards Celebration - Oct 15, 2022
Dee Ann Kline

Each October, the Olympia Mountaineers gather to celebrate the work we have done, the fun we have had, and the friendships we made during the program year. 

We recognize graduates of all of our classes and present awards to leaders who have shown exemplary service in climbing, conservation, youth outreach, scrambling, and hiking. Pins and patches are presented. We also honor an Olympia Mountaineer with the Branch Service Award. The Branch Service Award recognizes an Olympia Mountaineer for their outstanding service over a multi-year period. 

Our new social and awards celebration is a new twist to the traditional Awards Banquet. This year, rather than a banquet, there will be light refreshments (including vegetarian offerings) with complementary wine, beer, and soft drinks. 

The featured speaker is Mike Endres, a guidebook author, adventurer, and photographer. He will share stories of his adventures and climbs while travelling from Colorado to Alaska.
