Silvana Fair provides fun, learning for local children By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Families and children from around the region came down to Silvana to show their livestock as part of the annual Silvana Fair. The event is one of the earliest fairs in the Puget Sound area and is meant for children. It was held July 27 this year. "This is kind of the kickoff to the fair season. So what we project to the kids is that it's a learning fair," said Kyle Glover, chairman of this year's fair. "Obviously we give out ribbons, we give out trophies, but really you come here to learn for the bigger fairs," he said. For a lot of children in the region who grow up on farms, the local fair is something they return to each year. See FAIR on page 2

Children got to bake bread, churn butter and saw wood like the original settlers of the Arlington area during the local Pioneer Days on July 27. The annual event put on by the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneers is meant to give local families a taste of what life was life before today's conveniences. "We put it on to remind people what life was like 100 years ago, before there was

all the modern appliances and electricity," said Karen Dale, one of the main organizers of this year's event. The Stillaguamish Valley Pioneers, who also run the local Stillaguamsih Valley Pioneer Museum, bring out some of their historical items as part of the event each year. "We want to acquaint people to the museum. A lot of the items we've brought over are from the museum," said Dale.

Indivisible Marysville hosted four City Council candidates and the two upcoming candidates for Mayor who will be on the upcoming primary ballot. The event was held on July 23. The two candidates with the most votes in the Aug. 6 primary election will head to the primary election in November. City Council Pos. 5 Candidates The August ballot will feature a race between five City Council candidates: Todd Fahlman, Gary Kemp, Kelly Richards,

Noah Rui and Jeff Seibert. Rob Toyer, the incumbent of the seat, is not running for re-election as he is running for Snohomish County treasurer. Kelly Richards is currently a Pinewood Elementary para-educational who has served on the Marysville Planning Commission for many years now. “It gives me a good background on where we are and how we got here,” he said. He said he misses the small town Marysville used to be but doesn’t think curbing the growth is a good idea. “If you’re not growing, you’re dying,” he See FORUM on page 8

Pet Piper

Building A Bond For Life.

Piper is a 3 year old female Domestic Shorthair Mix. Piper is a sweet feline looking for a quiet home to call her own. She has lived in a busy home with another cat and dog, and was shy and nervous the entire time, so she would prefer her next home to be calm and quiet. The past 2 years she has lived as an indoor only feline, and will love a safe place to curl up and take a long cat nap. Take some time to meet this lovely girl at The NOAH Center!

"You get to knock the rust off from the year before. Most of these kids have been doing this entire lives," said Glover. "Everybody here builds friendships that are lifelong friendships," he said. Local parent Mike Rudy had multiple children showing livestock at this year's fair and said they have come to the event many times. "We love this fair. It's nice and easy and easy for them to come in, load and unload," he said. "It's a classic American fair. It's only one day but it's really easy and nice," he said. Glover himself was a frequent participant in the fair when he was young as well. "I grew up doing this all throughout elementary, middle and high school so it's kind of cool for us to give back to the community and

really teach the kids about agriculture," he said. Glover said he enjoyed helping the kids improve. "To give back to the kids and watch them grow is the best part," he said. "Most of these kids do it all on their own. When they originally start they have some help from their parents but this really teaches them how to take care of their animals." Many people from around the region come down to watch the fair and visit Silvana as well. "I think they just love the small-town aspect of it," said Glover. Local parent Melinda Perkins said it is a lot of fun. "It's nice to be able to bring the kids here and they enjoy it every year," she said. "There's different activities for the kids and all the animals." Local parent Liv Mongillo said she loves the fair. "We like that it's a little bit smaller and there's lots of animals that you can get up close and personal with," she said. Most of the work at the fair is done by volunteers



Aviana Mongillo pets one of the goats at the Silvana Fair on July 27. and mainly only the judges get paid, said Glover, who wanted to thank the staff who works hard to put on the event each year. "Without volunteers it wouldn't be going on," he said.

The event also raises funds annually primarily through their auction in March, said Glover. Additional information about the fair is available at their website at silvanafair. com.

PIONEER Continued from page 1

Terry Legare, one of the main organizers of the event, said that people like the handson nature of a lot of the activities, such as sewing or washing clothes with old equipment. The "What It Is?" table is also popular as visitors guess what old items, such as a candlestick phone, were used for. "The kids tell me it's an old 'cell phone.' It's a phone, not quite a cell phone," said Legare. Local parents said they enjoyed the opportunity for families at Pioneer Days. "So far it's really fun, the kids are really loving it," said local Cecelia Lowe. "I think it is a great way for kids to see how life was 100 years ago," she said. Shannon Walk and her family saw the event online and thought they would try it out. "We haven't been here before so we thought we would check it out. It's really neat so far," she said. There were additional activities available this year, such as baking bread and sewing with an antique sewing machine. "We tried to add more activities for the children and make it more visible in the community. We've done a lot more advertising," said Dale. The Arlington Old Time Fiddlers were also invited to the event. Legare said they

wanted to reach out to local groups that would fit with the event. "We want to embrace the whole area and the people who live here," she said. The event was also moved from September to July, in part because the last couple of years it has rained during the event. "So far it's look like it's been a good move to put it in July," said Dale, who added there was a good turnout. Legare hopes that the event can build on that momentum from this year. "It's just been a real positive experience and I just hope it continues to grow," she said.

Lakewood hosts annual passing tournament, lineman challenge By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com


Brayden Hodgin, Marysville Youth quarterback, loads up and fires the ball downfield in one-on-one drills at Marysville Getchell High School on July 25.

MG, M-P partner with M'ville Youth Football By Andrew Hines sports@northcountyoutlook.com The Marysville Youth Football League partnered with the Marysville Getchell Chargers and the Marysville-Pilchuck Tomahawks for a four-day camp, from 6-8 p.m., on July 22-25. The camp covered all divisions of the MYFL including Pee Wee, 89ers, Junior, Bantam and Senior. The cost was a $40 fee for each participant, which included all days of the camp as well as a camp T-shirt. Alongside the funds raised for the MYFL, they also ran a food and textile drive to support the local community. “We love seeing the younger kids getting excited to work with the high schoolers and learn some things from players that they look up to. These kids come out to the high school games all the time and being able to have a camp like this makes the community grow even stronger,” said MYFL President Tyler Hodgin. Throughout the camp, both high school coaching staffs, as well as their varsity athletes helped by running

each drill and one-on-one session. They worked alongside the MYFL coaches and were able to pass along their knowledge of player development while building relationships with the young players in Marysville. The camp set itself apart with both the Tomahawks and Chargers programs working together, allowing for more hands-on coaching. “It’s great for us and our program to be able to give back to the community. We spend the camp trying to teach them the basics and take their coaches input in what they would like to learn from us. The more we can teach fundamentals, especially tackling, the more we can educate people that the game isn’t as dangerous as it used to be,” said Marysville Getchell Head Coach Davis Lura. If you want to learn more about the MYFL you can check out their website at http://www.marysvilleyouthfootballleague. sportssignup.com/site/ or email marysvilleyouthfootball@yahoo.com for any additional information.

Lakewood hosted the 12th Annual Cougars Championship Passing Tournament and Lineman Challenge on July 27. The Lakewood Cougars and the Arlington Eagles were the two local teams that competed throughout the 7-on-7 tournament. Lakewood had a strong performance in the roundrobin as they went 2-1 and finished 1-1 in bracket play. Arlington had a rough start to the day as they went 1-2 in the round-robin but also earned their way into the quarterfinals finishing 1-1 in the bracket. “I love seeing the guys get out there and compete together, because that’s only going to help your team. It’s all about taking lessons from each game and taking advantage of the repetitions within the offense as we move into next season,” said Lakewood Head Coach Dan Teeter. The Cougars started off their day with a loss to the

North Creek Jaguars, 247, but went on to beat the Kentwood Conks, 29-21, and the Oak Harbor Wildcats, 38-7. After the 2-1 start, Lakewood entered the Championship bracket as the sixth seed to take on the Inglemoor Vikings, who they defeated 28-7. After the first round they met the Jaguars once again in the quarterfinals. On the last play of the game the Cougars scored the gametying touchdown but decided to go for the win, and after a controversial twopoint conversion call, they lost 14-13. Arlington had an upand-down performance in the round robin as they lost to the Lake Stevens Vikings, 41-27, beat the Inglemoor Vikings, 30-10, and ended it with a loss to the Kings Knights, 39-21. After going 1-2 earlier in the day, the Eagles entered the Championship bracket as the tenth seed. They started off with a statement in the first round by beating the Kentwood Conks

with a huge margin of 38-7. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to overcome the Bothell Cougars in the quarterfinals as they lost 45-21. As for the Lineman Challenge, Arlington didn’t have anyone compete, but Lakewood was able to land in the top five in four out of six events. They placed fifth

in the 185 pound bench press, third in both the 2-man sled push-and-pull and 6-man sled drive and first in the tire flip relay. If you want to support the Eagles or the Cougars, they will be competing again this Fall as football season is right around the corner.

3on3X coming to Arlington By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com

Western Washington’s Premier three-on-three basketball tournament, 3on3X, is coming up fast as it will be held at the Arlington Airport from Aug. 11-12. This will be the 14th annual tournament, as nearly 200 teams come out to compete on the blacktop ever year. 3on3X looks to include the entire community as there are divisions for everyone who wants to pick up a basketball. Over the last few years a thirdgrade division has been added as well as a co-ed division. The divisions are organized by difficulty, the lowest being Bronze, then Recreational, and finally Gold for the most experienced and serious ballers. “Three-on-three is so different compared to normal tournaments because of the atmosphere that surrounds it. We get to play outside and have a lot of fun, while still bringing in so much talent from all over the area,” said Board Member Jeff Bryson. If you want to enter your team into the tournament there is an entry fee of $120 for a three-person

team, plus one alternate. The deadline was originally set for Aug. 1 but has been moved to Aug. 5 to give everyone more time to get in on the action. In addition to being a great community event, 3on3X also contributes all of their proceeds to local youth basketball and the American Cancer Society. Every summer the organization is able to raise thousands of dollars while also

providing hoopers with a chance to prove their stuff out on the court. “It’s cool to see that the event is not just for people that want to play basketball, it’s also for the people that want to watch or just come out to have fun in the community. It takes a huge amount of volunteers to put the whole thing on and it’s amazing to see all of the support,” said Bryson. Alongside the tourna-

ment there will also be attractions from all over the community including concessions, live music, vendors and on-site camping that is now available. If you want to know more about the tournament or register to compete you can check out the website at www.3on3x. com. If you have any other questions you can contact a tournament representative at hoops@3on3x.com.

Project aims to restore salmon habitat By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com An area just south of Marysville’s city limits is being restored to an estuary habitat in preparation of future traffic projects in the area. Washington State Department of Transportation contractor crews are currently working on the project by SR-529 and I-5 just outside of Marysville. The environmental improvements are meant to help fish in the area. “Salmon are important for this whole region,” said Tom Peace, communications director for the Washington State Department of Transportation. It’s important for us to do what we can to help them." The estuary habitat that was historically there provided fish with a saltwater/ freshwater mix which is useful for many species. “The crew is going to remove the fill that was in place for many decades now. It was put in about 70 years ago,” said Pearce. Trees and fill material were placed in the area to raise the ground level when I-5 was built through the area in 1969. A diking system had been built for local business use in the late 1800s as well. The contractor crews will work to undo most of that work to bring the area

more in line to where it was before those interventions. “They have removed the majority of the trees and are wrapping up that work right now,” said Pearce. “Next we’re building some inlets for water and adding some native plants to the habitat,” he said. After that crews plan to bring in water to the area. “Then we will breach the dike to let the water back into the region,” said Pearce. “We will have 12 new acres of habitat,” for the local fish and animals, he said, and local officials will continue to monitor the area after the dike is breached to see if progress is being made. The project is going on throughout the summer. “We plan to finish this up in the fall,” said Pearce. This work is being done now to mitigate for two future transportation projects in the area. As part of Washington state’s massive Connecting Washington transportation package the area will receive a peak-use shoulder lane on I-5 and an off-ramp that connects to SR-529 from I-5. Those two projects are still in the pipeline. “We are still working on the design for both of those projects,” said Pearce. Pearce said that the work is not expected to cause much impact to traffic.

Tulalip Health Fair helps make community healthier By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Tulalip Tribal members gathered to help their community be more healthy and aware of their local health support services at the annual Tulalip Health Fair. This is the 36th year that Tulalip has sponsored a fair. “The reason we do it is for prevention for our people. We do prostate screenings for the men, blood panels for everybody to check their cholesterol,” said Jennie Fryberg, main organizer for the event. Many different types of screenings are available at the event. “We catch people early. We’ve caught several people early enough where they didn’t even have to go through chemo,” said Fryberg. “That’s why we do it, for prevention,” she said. Michael Rios was able to take his son to test for diabetes at the event. “I enjoy it, being able to have all these types of health services under one roof makes it easy to find health services for me and my son,”

Caroline O’Neill also appreciated the amount of resources available. “I like just being able to get checked and have some good resources here,” she said. In addition to the screenings, many different organizations provide information for people. “We provide information on some of the services we provide here in Tulalip

MORE CARE LESS WORRY CHERI’S STORY OF CANCER & CARE Cheri didn’t want her cancer diagnosis to define her. More than anything, she wanted to continue to enjoy her family. The staff at Skagit Regional Health – Cancer Care Center provided exceptional care, near the comforts of home, around those she loved most. Cheri spent less time in traffic and more time on the things that mattered most.

so that people know where people can get help for their health issues, because we want to take of our people as a whole, spiritually, mentally and physically,” said Fryberg. There are a lot of things that people need to know more about, she said. “To learn the importance of getting your teeth taken care of, to get immunization for the kids and about smoking cessation,” said Fryberg, “those are big things that our people need.” Rios said he learned a little bit about what could be causing some asthma irritation. “I have a little bit of asthma and one of the clean air booths was asking what kind of heating we have. We have one of the clean air purifiers that she said could emit o-zone that can be an irritant so now I’m going to go home and research if ours does or doesn’t,” he said. The event serves more than 300 people typically, although Fryberg said only about 250 people had come through so far. The canoe journey was hosted closer to Tulalip than it normally is, said Fryberg, so many Tulalip members were likely attending that. “We’re thankful for what we've got here today and the team has really come together as a whole,” said Fryberg. Karen Fryberg, the namesake of the Karen I. Fryberg Tulalip Health Clinic and mother of Jennie Fryberg, started the health fair 36 years ago. “My mother worked for the Tribe 33 years as a health clinic administrator. She’s the one who started this fair and me keeping the dream alive is why I do what I do,” said Jennie Fryberg. She hopes the event will continue to help keep her community healthier.

Festival of the River celebrates 30 years of education, music By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com The Festival of the River will return to the Arlington area for it’s 30th year of music, celebration and environmental education on Aug. 10 and 11. Gates open for the event at 10 a.m. at River Meadows County Park in the Arlington Heights area. To celebrate the festival’s 30th anniversary, the Stillaguamish Tribe will not charge for parking this year, which is typically the only charge to enter the festival each year. “This year is completely free, no parking or entrance fee this year,” said Tamara Neuffer, coordinator for the festival, environmental outreach and education specialist for the Stillaguamish Tribe. There will also be reduced prices on merchandise and the salmon bake. “We’re really excited about this year, and we’re hoping for big crowds and not a big rainstorm like we had last year,” said Neuffer. This year’s music will include Lee Brice and Thompson Square on Aug. 10 and Boz Scaggs and War on Aug. 11 Native American culture has also been a part of the event for many years now, including a powwow that brings in Native American dancers from around the region. “They brought the powwow in and it really blossomed into a multi-cultural event because it’s really how we [non-Natives] celebrate with music and a concert, and also how Native Americans celebrate as well with a powwow,” said Neuffer. The powwow is great to help cultures connect, she said. “There are a lot of people that come every year because of the powwow,” said Neuffer. “I think for a lot of people, this is their first exposure to any kind of Native American culture,” she said.

Abby Homold, right, plays a bag toss game to learn about cleaning up after yourself to keep rivers free of pollutants with help from Rodney Pond, left, executive director of Sound Salmon Solutions at last year's Festival of the River on Aug. 11, 2018. The event started from an environmental grant to help educate the public on environmental concerns. It retains that legacy with a strong educational focus. “This is my eighth year and we’ve always just tried to make it better,” said Neuffer. In recent years the festival has put all the education activities into one big tent and Neuffer said that people have enjoyed that. “From an education standpoint we’ve come up with a new model for people to learn about the environment and their lo-

cal watershed that’s not so intimidating,” she said. Environmental groups from around the region come to the festival each year to talk about what they do and help people understand their environment. “We don’t have to go looking for people to come to our festival now,” said Neuffer. The Stillaguamish Tribe funds the festival each year to give back to their community. “It’s an expensive event to put on and it’s all from tribal membership,” said Neuffer, “They consider it

a gift because they appreciate this community … they take care of their community and I think this is part of that.” Entrance to the festival should go more quickly this year. “We won’t be taking money so we’ll be able to get people in there faster,” said Neuffer. However, she asks people to be ready for a wait when leaving the festival. “We only have one real option for an exit, so we tell people just to be patient,” she said. For more information about the festival go to www.festivaloftheriver.com.

FORUM Continued from page 1

said. He supports the city’s embedded social worker program. “I like the embedded social worker program and hopefully we can continue finding funding for it,” he said. Richards also spoke in favor the Cascade Industrial Center and attracting more high wage jobs to the city. Gary Kemp is a union business representative and has been a Marysville resident since 1974. Making housing more attainable for young people is important to him, he said. “I have two grown daughters working really hard and it’s hard for them to save up money,” said Kemp. “We need new programs, re-zoning, whatever we have to do to make it happen for our kids." He supports manufacturing apprenticeship programs. The embedded social worker program has been a positive to the city, he said. “Sometimes they need that police officer and so-

cial worker to come up and ask them ‘do you need help,’” said Kemp. Todd Fahlman of Fahlman Property Group has been a resident of the city since 1998. He hopes to manage the growth of the city as the area continues to gain people from Seattle and Everett. “We need to add more inventory and find ways we can smartly do some good zoning so we can help reduce the prices of these homes,” he said. Fahlman hopes that enforcement of drug laws is a priority for the city. He also would like to see public and private investment into the Marysville Boys & Girls Club. “We’re the secondlargest city in Snohomish County and we can do better,” he said. Noah Rui is a Chinese immigrant who works in real estate for the Snohomish PUD. He said that the solution to the housing problems is to bring in better jobs to the community. “If we could build people up to have more jobs and more income,” he said, “so we’re not pouring more

Communities money trying to build affordable housing.” The embedded social worker program is a good strategy for the city, he said. “It prevents crimes and establishes solutions, and this program can lead to a safer community,” he said. As a father, Rui said that public safety is always important. “Public safety is my number one priority,” he said. Jeff Seibert is a former Marysville City Council member who is attempting to return to the council. He was not present at the forum and did not respond to our e-mail for comments. Mayoral Candidates Incumbent Jon Nehring faces challenger Mike Patrick for the mayor seat of Marysville. Patrick is a long-time Boeing employee who said he hopes to bring in new ideas to the city. “I have a lot of respect for Jon but I want to do a lot of things that I don’t think are in Jon’s mindset,” he said. One of Patrick’s biggest concerns is how the city is changing with it’s growth. “I grew up in Lynnwood


and no one ever took control of Lynnwood. It sprawled and sprawled and now it’s goal is to become an urban center with highrises and financial centers. I don’t want to see that happen to Marysville,” Patrick said. Patrick is supportive of studying the possibility of a local hospital. “We’re going to have to come back to the taxpayer and bring the hard numbers and ask them ‘is this what you want?’” s said. He also supports the social worker program and transportation improvements that are already coming to the city, he said. Jon Nehring has been mayor of the city since 2010. He pointed to projects he hopes to continue such as the $160 million worth of transportation projects brought into the city from the state’s Connecting Washington transportation package. Two new interchanges will eventually be built for to help get into the city around the railroad tracks as part of that package. The embedded social worker program is also something he hopes to

continue. The first year for the program helped 79 people into treatment. “What we need for that is more detox facilities, in-patient facilities, and finding housing is getting tough too,” he said. “We’re looking to find solutions to that."

Nehring was more skeptical of a city-led hospital effort. “Some things are better left to the professionals that do them,” he said. “I’m not saying we’ll never need a hospital, but I think you got to look at the big picture.”

RAVE RAVE: My family and I really enjoyed attending the Silvana Fair on Saturday. It was a great time with lots of fun and interesting activities for the kids. Thank you to everyone who helped organize and put it on. RAVE: Thank you to the Stillaguamsih Valley Pioneers for putting on their annual Pioneer Days last weekend. The fair of-

fered a number of fun hands-on activities to teach kids about our history and how things were done in the past. It's important to preserve that history and teaching our younger generation about it is fantastic.

RAVE: Thanks to the city of Marysville for putting on their summer concerts at Jennings Park. We went recently and had a great time.

Veteran completes city fellowship Navy Veteran Matthew Oaks successfully completed The Veterans Local Government Management Fellowship (VLGMF) with the City of Marysville. The 16- to 20-week fellowship, sponsored by the International City/County Managers Association, is designed to provide transitioning service members with management training and hands-on experience with the goal of preparing them for smooth transitions into local government careers. “I expected to build a strong network and a working knowledge of how the city operates,” Oaks said. “This fellowship will prepare me for a career in local government by providing real world exposure to daily operations and policy decisions of the Mayor-Council that I can leverage in the future.” Throughout the course of the fellowship, Oaks collaborated with city staff on projects with the Finance, Police, Public Works and Human Resources departments. He participated in and presented on the behalf of department directors in City Council and Committee meetings. Finance Director Sandy Langdon praised Oaks’ work crafting language and a table to help developers calculate potential savings from a tax exemption available in the Cascade Industrial Center (Manufacturing Industrial Area). “I would recommend the fellowship to other transitioning service members because it provides a superb view of how a local government serves the community,” Oaks said. “I found countless correlations between the func-


Matthew Oaks, left, and Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring.

tions of each city department and the Navy’s organizational structure. City of Marysville employees come to work every day eager to serve their community, something service members can relate to.” Mayor Jon Nehring said, “We were very fortunate to obtain Matthew’s services through this great fellowship program. He has contributed significantly to our city over these past few months in a variety of departments and critical projects. We are incredibly grateful for his service to our country and to our local community.” Oaks joined the U.S. Navy from Bothell. Through his 22 years of active duty service, he deployed six times while rising to the highest enlisted rank of Master Chief Petty Officer. He earned his associate degree from Everett Community College and Bachelor of General Studies from Columbia College, graduating magna cum laude. He lives with his wife and family in north Snohomish County. Find additional information about the VLGMF program at https://icma.org/ vlgmf.

Marysville's Street Fair will bring food, arts and more to Third Street By Christopher Andersson christopher@northcountyoutlook.com Marysville’s Third Street will be filled with arts, foods and plants for sell as part of the annual Marysville Street Fair. The fair returns for it’s 34th year from Aug. 9 to 11. It is open on downtown's Third Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. The Downtown Marysville Merchants Association hosts the event each year. The market is traditionally known for focusing on just self-made items and self-grown plants at the street fair. “We are changing things up a bit,” said Lorene Wren,

owner of Wrenhaven Vintage Market and one of the main organizers of this year’s street fair. “We’re adding vintage vendors. Although it is still focused on homemade and homegrown items we’re also letting in vintage items,” she said. They have about 100 vendors registered for the event. “And we have an unusual amount of new vendors this year,” said Wren. Those vendors plan to sell items including yard art, handmade signs, soaps, lotions, antiques and vintage items. The eating area will also be slightly different this year. “We will have a new food

area. It will be a shaded area where people will be able to get a lot to eat,” said Wren. The street fair has become an annual part of the summer for the downtown area. “People like that it is local and that it is a tradition,” said Wren. “They like that it is three days so that it meets their schedule’s needs." A variety of family fun will be available at this year’s event. “This year we’re going to have some fun entertainment sporadically throughout the event,” said Wren. Hilton Pharmacy will be celebrating 100 years by sponsoring a caricature artist, a dinosaur will be walking around the event and face painting will be avail-

able. Wren said that the downtown merchants are happy to help with the event each year. “It’s really fun to give back to the community,” she said. The event also helps draw people down to the area, which has been improved the last few years with the improvements to Comeford Park and the Ebey Waterfront Trail which offer a variety of options for families in the summer. “We’re excited to help promote this area of town,” said Wren.

It has formed a green carpet of tiny leaves and I trim it close to the bricks twice a year. Peeking through it are two large colorful wire dragonflies that add a bit of whimsy in the otherwise dark, shaded side of the house.
