For the 109th week of "7 QUESTION SUNDAY" we shine the spotlight on another influential individual from the PNW. Art is the father of our marketing manager, Liz. He’s lived the majority of his 82 years in all three states of the PNW! We decided to have some fun and ask dad what his answers were before the age of 50 and after the age of 50 to take advantage of his 82 years in the PNW!

Art: I’m Elizabeth’s Dad. I’ve lived in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. I‘m retired now and am a father of five wonderful children.
