Save the Date for the ‘Welcome Back, Tacoma!’ Event on June 30

 

In conjunction with the statewide reopening associated with the lifting of COVID-19 regulations, Mayor Victoria Woodards will be joined by Governor Jay Inslee and other special guests to “Welcome Back, Tacoma!” on Wednesday, June 30, from 11 AM to 1 PM in Wright Park (501 South I St.).

 

The community is invited to come celebrate at this special event, being held in collaboration with Metro Parks Tacoma the Governor’s Office and the “Washington Ready” campaign. This campaign is a statewide celebration of the end to current COVID-19 restrictions and provides an opportunity for Washingtonians to celebrate the end of this chapter.

 

“As we recover and rebuild from COVID-19, it’s important to recognize all we have endured over the course of this pandemic, how we have supported our neighbors and local businesses, and the many contributions of our essential workers,” said Mayor Victoria Woodards. “When we reopen on June 30, I am excited to exclaim ‘Welcome back, Tacoma!’ and to gather in celebration of this much-anticipated milestone. We are Compassionate Tacoma, and I am certain our COVID-19 recovery will provide us with more opportunities to show up for one another and ensure we emerge a welcoming, connected, and vibrant community."

 

Participants are asked to enjoy this celebration responsibly by following current CDC masking requirements while in attendance.
