Author Betty MacDonald is very successful in many countries, take for example the Czech Republic. She is the most popular author in this country until today.

If it was not for her, passenger only service may not even exist today. A memorial on her life: http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2003991236_foxobit03m.html

Lisabuela Park is still there today…

I’d love to see the Vashon boat named after her since she lived in Seattle and Vashon for so many decades.

Fred was one of the greatest men to live on Vashon and he’d was like a father to us all. His family donated the land to start the town of Vashon, and they grew acres of produce, fruit and berries.

Duwamish and Lushootseed would be great choices.
