The “Discover the Past” event is the first major fundraiser ever put on the by the Issaquah History Museums.
Or it is, at least, the museums’ first big fundraiser in a couple of decades, Issaquah History Museums Executive Director Erica Maniez said.
One reason for the lack of major fundraising was that the museums didn’t have anyone on staff or even on its board with experience in putting together bigger events. That changed when Robyn Barfoot, well known as the former curator of the Cougar Mountain Zoo, joined the museum board.

Residents and the city of Issaquah are partnering with Feet First to create a series of fun neighborhood walks intended to motivate people who live, work and play in Issaquah to explore their environment, share their observations and encourage people to walk more.
Trained neighborhood ambassadors will facilitate walks and conversation to highlight what they love about their community, and how they can make their neighborhood safer, easier and more inviting to walk in. Information will be collected and incorporated into the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Action Plan.
