15 Year Celebration at Thurston County Family and Juvenile Court

OLYMPIA - Thurston County Superior Court's Family and Juvenile Courthouse and Detention Center opened doors in September 1998 - fifteen years ago this month. Thurston County was the first court in the state to co-locate family and juvenile court operations in a stand-alone courthouse, separate from the other business of the court. Thurston County has been a model for other courts around the state in assigning and training judges specifically to do this work and to increase coordination to better serve families and children. With this milestone in mind, a special celebration will be held-
  • When:Tuesday, September 17, 2013 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Where:Thurston County Family and Juvenile Court, 2801 32nd Avenue SW, Tumwater Washington.

Cake will be served in celebration. Brief remarks will be made at 11:30 a.m. to begin the celebration before cutting the first cake for those who are at the courthouse. The public is invited. For directions or information, call Court Administration at (360)709-3295.
