OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASome of Edmonds’ best-known faces were in disguise — at least temporarily — at the Edmonds Yacht Club Friday night. The occasion was the annual Edmonds Chamber of Commerce banquet — this year with a Masquerade Ball theme — which drew not only business owners but elected officials and chamber volunteers, many decked out in colorful masks and party clothes.
