From Chei Daniels:  "I would like to take this opportunity to thank the special activities committee including the chairpersons Cami Leonard and Sharri Bailey for planning a fantastic installation banquet, Angie Sainsbury and her awards committee for their hard work on the awards ceremony and all of the sponsors of the event.  Everyone I spoke with had a great time.  Our NAR Region 12 Vice-President Gail Hartnett and 2011 National WCR President Margo Willis were so impressed with our event.  I was very proud to show them how the Yakima Association of Realtors throws a party! "
