The Manufacturing Industrial Council for the South Sound holds its Launch Party Sept. 26 with a celebration of the area's manufacturing, industrial and maritime community.

The evening event at Foss Waterway Seaport will honor the rich history and economic impact of industry and maritime in the South Sound and the importance of having the Manufacturing Industrial Council dedicated to the community's interests.

The Launch Party will be preceded by an optional VIP Boat Tour of the Port of Tacoma and other significant sights (space is limited, so sign up early for a spot!) The boat will leave from the Foss Waterway Seaport dock at 3pm, and return at 5pm. MORE INFORMATION HERE
