Ruth Waters Honored

Katrina Rill, on behalf of of Rep. Jackie Speier, presents Ruth Waters, PMA Founder and Executive Director, with a plaque honoring her leadership in promoting the arts and art appreciation in the Bay Area.  The text of Rep. Speier's tribute was entered into the official Congressional Record of the U.S. House of Representatives for March 17, 2017.  State Senator Jerry Hill sent a Certificate of Recognition delivered by Marc Hershman, and San Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine and Burlingame City Councilwoman Emily Beach each toasted Ruth Waters at a March event celebrating PMA's 4 Years in Burlingame and Waters' 40 Years Supporting Arts on the Peninsula.

Read the offical entry in the Congressional Record.
