    I'm Don Hickey. I have been part of the Dewey Griffin team since June of 1994. I have lived in Whatcom county my entire life. My family was here before Washington was even a state. I enjoy spending time with my 2 daughters, taking them to their soccer games and practice. I am a life-long Seahawk fan. I also enjoy a good run 4 times a week, but I make sure to counter-act any calorie loss with my untreatable addiction to pizza. My favorite free-time activity is extreme couponing...it helps me support my pizza habit.
