When Shannon Brundle did a study of Vashon’s waste stream for her master’s thesis, she was surprised to learn that not only does the island not have centralized composting, but there’s no place to recycle yard waste either. It’s either burned or ends up in a landfill.

We at the Vashon Theatre have spent the better part of a decade getting to know this place and getting to know so many of you. Things are really different here. Adults step outside the box. So many of you are lifelong learners, travelers, ageless athletes, artists and community-minded individuals. You play and participate in adult versions of spelling bees, pinewood derbies and trick-or-treating.

Vashon Theatre is one of those enduring, treasured Island institutions, without which Vashon just wouldn’t be Vashon. Since 1947, it’s been a great place for us to get out of the rain for a couple of hours, see our neighbors and be mesmerized by those hallucinogenic murals.

Eileen Wolcott had been gearing up to take out yet another business loan to keep her small movie house on Vashon Island afloat, frustrated that she had to do so but realizing she had no choice.

Vashon will soon become a Mecca for electric cars and their owners, if a group of enthusiastic Islanders has its way. More than 50 people have joined Vashon Electric Vehicle Association, or VEVA, to spread the word about transportation options powered by electricity.13934vashonElectricWEB2
