Three local volunteers have netted Golden Acorn awards from the local PTA.

The Golden Acorn award is awarded to individuals who have given outstanding volunteer service and shown dedication to our children and youth throughout the Snoqualmie Valley.

This year, Meg Bonda, Andrea Myrvold and Lorraine Thurston receive the acorns.

All three of them have been huge supporters of  art programs in local schools.

Thurston is currently a music teacher at North Bend Elementary. Myrvold is a parent whose daughter is an amazing trombone player, and Bonda has a freezer and storage locker devoted to the Mount Si High School Lacrosse and Football team's meals and equipment.

Each volunteer gets receive a pin and special personalized certificate signed by the President of the WA State PTA. To honor Golden Acorn award recipients, a $65 contribution will be made in their names to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Foundation that benefits post-secondary students.
