Curt ’98, Sara (Zak ‘96), and Carlie Strom travel from Woodbridge, VA. to the PLU Connections event in Washington DC
On June 16, Lutes gathered in Washington, D.C., for an East Coast PLU Connections Event.

The event began with an after-hours tour at the National Building Museum. Built in 1887 to house the Pension Bureau, this marvel of engineering and architectural design went on to house several government agencies before becoming a museum in 1985. The tour ended in the pension commissioner’s suite where PLU alumni, parents and friends were addressed by PLU President Loren Anderson and U.S. Congressman Rick Larsen. Larsen, a freshman congressman representing the 2 nd District of the State of Washington, and his wife Tiia Karlen, are both 1987 PLU graduates. The evening ended with a reception at Nick and Stephs restaurant.
