Allyn Days & Geoduck Festival 2017

PCSGA had a great day at Allyn Days & Geoduck Festival last Sunday! Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who were a part of this event. We enjoyed all the smiles and conversation about #geoduck and the shellfish industry. And big thanks to Taylor Shellfish Farms for cooking lunch at the event!!
