Oct. 23 to be Purple and Gold day in Washington

In celebration of the University of Washington’s Homecoming weekend, and the football game against Oregon, Gov. Chris Gregoire has proclaimed that Friday, Oct. 23, will be “Purple and Gold Day” in the state of Washington. (Yes, apparently even in the Palouse).
Gregoire is a 1971 UW grad and has issued a “Purple and Gold” proclamation each of the last three years.
“The University of Washington has a rich history of academic excellence, groundbreaking research, winning athletics, and life-changing innovation,” the proclamation reads. “I urge all citizens to don purple and gold in honor of this world-class institution.”
