Here’s our Scarecrow of the Day from the Edmonds Museum website: Shingle Bill, a retired shingle mill worker who likes to spend his days at the Edmonds Senior Center chatting with friends and enjoying the wonderful view. The senior center is located at 220 Railroad Ave.
You have until Oct. 31 to vote in each of the three categories: Business In The Bowl, Business Outside the Bowl, and Residential. The contest is being held in conjunction with the museum’s 40th anniversary, and the winner will be announced at the Museum’s fundraising banquet Friday, Nov. 8.
Rick Steves of Edmonds-based Europe Through the Back Door will speak at the dinner, which is open to the public. It will feature wine and hors d’oeuvres, raffles and a silent auction featuring gift baskets (check out The Best of My Edmonds News basket, featuring donations from our advertisers!), artwork and even vacation packages. There will be a catered buffet dinner and musical entertainment throughout the evening.
Tickets are $50 per person or reserve a table of eight for $400. Call 425-774-6507 to RSVP or purchase online via the museum website. Deadline to purchase dinner tickets is Nov. 3.
