Public Memorial for Val West on Saturday
The public memorial service for longtime PAWS of Grays Harbor volunteer Val West will be held this weekend.
82 year old West had been with PAWS for over 40 years and helped in starting the local organization. She had been a driving force in their fundraising and expansion. West died of cancer in November.
The public is invited on Saturday January 26th, from 12-4pm at the Rotary Log Pavilion in Aberdeen.
Organizers expect that hundreds will be in attendance.
PAWS staff tell KXRO that it is a potluck, and they ask that if possible those who plan to eat at the event bring an item.
PAWS of Grays Harbor will be closed during the memorial.
