Olympia Armory Closed Suddenly

Olympia Armory.

When we arrived at our meeting 11 February, we received some bad news. An inspection of the old building found high levels of lead in one of the rooms downstairs. The Washington National Guard uses the room for storage, but it used to be an indoor gun range. Our cadets and staff were not exposed, as we utilize other parts of the building, and there was no contamination outside of that room.

As of right now, we do not have a place to meet. While the lead is restricted to a room that we don't have access to, they are shutting down out of an abundance of caution. We will keep you updated on our very earnest search for another place to meet while we find out the fate of the Olympia Armory.

Our Dancing in the Clouds is being postponed.
