UNCOUNTABLE BALLOTS

Whatcom County Auditor Diana Bradrick: “Every election hundreds of ballots go uncounted because voters don’t know to check the pick-up times where they drop off their mail. It’s really sad because these are votes we’re unable to count. It also represents a cost to taxpayers because these ballots require special handling.”

NECK GAITERS UPDATE

Hold off. Other credible scientists say we don’t actually know there’s a problem with gaiters. Wait for better science. Research has been sparked.

FLATTERY

Hi Neighbors,

At least 4/5ths of Flattery find ourselves available this Saturday from 1-3pm, so we are going to be running through some of our Celtic Tunes and folky songs as a pop-up yard concert at 2114 Williams St. (1st. block off Eldridge) from 1-3pm. 

Flattery (or A Flattering Light when we aren’t all present) are Don Sayegh on guitar and vocals, Kurt Yandell on mandolin/bazooki and vocals, Todd Citron Irish whistles, flute, Bodhran and vocals, Beth Fuller vocals and rhythm toys, Eric Mickleson on fiddle (when he’s not fiddling around elsewhere). We’d love to have folks come by to listen. Wear your masks and keep a good distance, and take a stroll down Williams Street to hear some live music on Saturday. Cheers!  

POP UP ART AND PLANT SALE

Saturday, Aug. 15th from 11am-1:30pm.. Come to the alley behind 2524 Victor St., between Victor and Williams (and leave any cars out on the main streets). I’m going to post it on Craigslist and I’ll add some photos. We will have stuff spread out – please wear your mask! Cash, checks or Venmo accepted.

FREE TREEHOUSE: YOU HAUL

Hello, we don’t have young children in our household and would love for the treehouse at 2700 Williams Street to go to a good home. If you choose to take it, we ask that you completely remove it from the tree and yard. We will text photos upon request. Please contact Paul Beckel 360-820-9995 by text.

BURNISH CLAY STUDIO

Over in Sunnyland, is owned by Columba neighbor Heather Hitt. Burnish is a community clay studio that, when the world was normal, offered classes and other clay related services. They currently have a Monthly Membership program for adults and teens age 14+ to use the studio equipment. Usage is by appointment via an online system to make sure they keep the number of people in the space at a safe level. Wheels & work tables are spaced 6 feet apart and masks are required at all times. This is available to people of all skill levels as long as they have taken at least 1 clay class somewhere in the not so distant past as there is no instruction included in the program.

Especially since kids will be staying home a while longer, playing with clay is a great way to make some art & have some dirty fun. They have clay available for sale to work with at home and offer firing services as well to complete finished pieces. People who picked up a Quarantine Clay Kit from Jeramy & Megan Noet of Blue Water Pottery are also welcome to bring finished pieces to Burnish to fire. There is a page on their website that lays out options and pricing for these services.
