Thanks to you, Emily!

In the very early 1980s I was a member of the Chamber’s Tourism Committee. Not having lived in Sequim very many years I suggested that we initiate some hanging baskets to brighten the town up.

In the very early 1980s I was a member of the Chamber’s Tourism Committee. Not having lived in Sequim very many years I suggested that we initiate some hanging baskets to brighten the town up.

A group of us, which included local garden experts, we put together about a dozen small baskets and the city provided the hangers. Not everyone was in favor of the effort. They would simply be targets for beers cans and so on. But we carried on. One of the service clubs offered to water them but they could only water once a week. I remember driving up and down Washington Street, which I never realized was such a windy corridor, the little baskets waving to and fro.

Fortunately Emily Westcott entered the picture a year or so later. Today we can all enjoy the results of her efforts. Thank you, Emily.
