We are sad to see Abed and Hussniyyeh leave the Seattle area for good. Both of them have worked so hard on many Arab Center projects, most especially on the biennial Arab Festival, at the Seattle Center. Furthermore, Abed was president of the board between 2007 and 2009. Hussniyyeh offered a workshop at the Tacoma Art Museum on teaching Palestinian embroidery to participants. In addition to her work on ACW projects, she helped further the work of the Palestine Heritage Group that sells Palestinian handicrafts. She was always ready to bake good things for the various events. Both of them were actively engaged in the Arab community of Seattle.
The Arab Center Board wishes them all the best of luck in their future residence in Jordan. We will sorely miss them in Seattle.
Huda Giddens, President,
Board of Arab Center of Washington
