1. Remembering Sue Michaud

With heavy hearts we mourn the passing of Sue Michaud last week.

Sue was a WTD employee of 18 years, a valued member of the Civil Engineers & Designers group, and an active member of TEA Council of Representatives. Always willing to offer an energetic hand, she could be counted on to volunteer for TEA-related activities. We will miss her.

Time to Share Thoughts and Memories of Sue Michaud will be Thursday, June 16, at King Street Center's 5th floor Harappa and Cloaca Maxima, 2 pm to 3 pm.

The Celebration of Life for Sue Michaud will be held on June 18th at 6:00pm at the College Club Seattle, 11 East Allison St Seattle, WA 98102

Light food will be served and beer & wine will be available for purchase. The family asks that everyone wear their favorite Seahawk swag.

WTD management noted that King County’s Employee Assistance Program, Making Life Easier, is available to anyone who needs assistance during this time. Additional information can be found by following this link: Employee Assistance Program | Making Life Easier
