First Friday’s 2019 ‘Whodunnit’? The goddess of hope

Pamela Newman of Sequim was the winner of the “Whodunnit Downtown? – The Case of the Mistaken Tin Foil Hat” event during the Jan. 4 Sequim Art Walk after correctly picking Elpis — named after the goddess of hope — who stole Specular Specular’s hat.

The NASA satellite dish had fallen to Earth in a Sequim lavender field where the fashion designer gathered it up for her latest collection. Elpis managed to phone home and the whole band Harmonia, who were inspiring and encouraging extraterrestrials, got picked up in the end to return to their cosmic home.

Newman on the big prize of donated gifts including: a night’s stay at the Seaview Vacation Rental from Cedarbrook Lavender and Herb Farm; a bottle of wine from Wind Rose Cellars; coffee and lunch for two from Rainshadow Café; Klingon Blood Wine from Evil Roy’s Elixirs Distillery; a $20 gift certificate to Sunshine Café; the game of Clue from Diane Fatzinger, and a set of Sequim magnets from Renne Emiko Brock.

Elpis was portrayed by Anne Burkhardt. Other suspects were Tawana Borden (playing Specular Specular), Joe Borden (Sir Talash Sooth), Mary Higley (Arcus), Cindy Weston (Koros), Kelly Olson (Pax), Emily Westcott (Captain Aster Nestor), Adriana Hashem (Mrs. Minerva Mens-Smitty), Crystal Stout (Agent CC) and Jeff Perry (Agent JP).

Clues were at Bag Ladies of Sequim, Blue Whole Gallery, Cedarbrook Lavender, City of Sequim Civic Center, Evil Roy’s Elixirs Distillery, Forage Gifts & Northwest Treasures, Peninsula Taproom, Rainshadow Café, Sequim Habitat Boutique Store, Sequim Spice and Tea, Sequim’s Sunshine Café, That Takes the Cake and Wind Rose Cellars.

This year’s “Whodunnit Downtown?” was written and produced by Renne Emiko Brock, and originally established by Vickie Maples and Diane Fatzinger.
