State Sen. Joe Fain (R-Auburn, 47th District) received the Bill Kyle Memorial Award for his elected service at the Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce's fifth annual Recognition of Service dinner Wednesday at the Muckleshoot Casino.
“Breaking ground on this park is the result of a great deal of work by community members who had a vision to improve our region and are making it happen,” said Sen. Fain (R-Auburn), who secured a $650,000 grant for the park in the state’s 2013 capital budget. “Providing opportunities for families to recreate is vitally important to this growing area. I cannot wait to see the incredible community asset this park will be for many years."
Washington state Sen. Joe Fain believes he has found the perfect job for himself based on his traits: a strong work ethic and “channelable ADD.”Always a curious person, Fain said he expects to be 70 years old and still not be able to answer the question, “what do you want to do with your life?”
