Hooray for Fall City Day!!

See you on June 11th!



The future is uncertain
for Fall City Totem Pole

 
   There are two main issues: the stability of the now 88-year-old pole and its inappropriateness on the ancestral land of the Snoqualmie Tribe. A May 13th Valley Record article by Conor Wilson (link below) shares its complex history and the current concerns. 
  
   There will be discussion and a vote on what should be done at the next FCCA meeting, June 7th at 7pm.


    Comments are welcome before the meeting. Send to ilovefallcity@gmail.com and request information on how to attend the zoom meeting on the 7th.

LIVIN' IT UP AT THE FALL CITY CEMETERY!
 
   Work parties were held this month at the Fall City Cemetery, to do some much-needed cleaning of grave markers...with emphasis on those for Civil War veterans buried here. Jack and Judy Kelley identified and documented 15 Civil War vets buried in Fall City in a publication available from our Reference Library. Richard Heisler of Seattle's Civil War Legacy told us of two additional burials. Richard is shown in the photo on the right in the back row. Other workers are Fall City Historical Board members (L-R) Gene Stevens, Anne Neilson, Rick Divers, Donna Driver-Kummen and Cindy Parks. 
    We were glad to get this project completed before Memorial Day.

If you would like more information on how to safely clean grave markers, or would like to volunteer for more work parties, contact Cindy Parks, 425-444-6960 or parkscl@comcast.net.
