Joe Nguyen (County Executive Dow Constantine was previously scheduled). If you’re not already RSVP’d, contact the Chamber ASAP. (7125 Fauntleroy Way SW)

CANOE JOURNEY’S ALKI STOP: This year, regional tribes’ canoe families are headed north on the Paddle to Lummi, and the Muckleshoot Tribe is again hosting those who stop at Alki Beach on the way. About 15 canoe families are expected; arrivals were expected to start as early as noon – a texter tells us they were passing Three Tree Point just after 10. (60th/Alki)

    One of my plant-knowledgeable friends tells me this is a daylily, not a tiger lily. Apparently mine is a variety called “tiger day Lily” – best of both worlds!

Sorry, comment time is over.
