We at Sprute & Davis CPA’s, LLP take an active interest in improving the community in which we live and work. The members of our staff are involved in numerous activities to help achieve our community's goals.

Here's what Herb's enjoyed doing......

Herb was a member of the Ballard Exchange Club for many years and served a term as their President. The Seventeenth of May Parade and the Ballard Dixieland Jazz Festival were among the fun community activities. When the Exchange Club no longer existed, Herb served as Chairman of the Ballard Dixieland Jazz Festival for another seven years. The proceeds from these events were donated to charities that support children.

Herb served six years on the Board of Trustees of Archbishop Murphy High School (back-to-back State Champions in 1A football). During his five years as president of the Board the school completed a $5 million capital campaign and built a new school on 22 acres of land.

He has been a member of the Ballard Chamber of Commerce, the Ballard Rotary Club, Toastmasters International (winner of numerous District and Regional contests) and served one year as an instructor for federal income tax course at Seattle Pacific University.
