Weekend Happenings: Kids Help Shape Local Government, Artist Reception & Wine Tasting

Chance for Kids to Have Voice in Local Government

According to Ross Marzolf, Communications Director for King County Councilwoman Kathy Lambert,  a ‘once in a generation’ opportunity for our youth to have valuable input in local government is coming to the Fall City Library this Saturday, October 4, 2014, from 10:30AM – 12:30PM.

King County is currently creating a Youth Action Plan and the council wants to hear from the youth of King County to know how to best serve them.

The King County Council says the voices of children and youth – and adults who care about them – are vital to creating this plan. Marzof commented that this Youth Action Planning is especially valuable for any Snoqualmie Valley students interested in government, low and politics.

Kids can help shape the future of youth in King County by joining Saturday’s ‘Community Conversation’ at the Fall City Library, 33415 SE 42nd PL (near Fall City Elementary). Lunch will be provided to attendees.

The North Bend Visitors Center and Art Gallery invites the community to a free Artists Reception and Wine Tasting Saturday, October 4, 2014, from 3PM – 6PM at the newly opened Visitors Center located at 250 Bendigo Blvd, in front of Bartells.

Wine tasting will be courtesy of local wineries, Piccola Cellars and Sigillo Cellars, accompanied by live music and refreshments from George’s Bakery and Pioneer Coffee.

During the months of October and November, the Mountain View Art Gallery  (located inside the Visitors Center) will feature art from Doug Williams (pen and ink illustrations) and Bob Anone (wood sculptures).

At the reception, Bob Antone will use music and storytelling of the Pacific Northwest connected to each of his sculptures, including musical saw, fiddle sand guitars, to tell the mysterious legends of the forests that surround Mt. Si.
