Paul Dorpat and Jean Sherrard bring "Then and Now" to Highline

Saturday, January 24, 2015, 2:00 pm, SeaTac City Hall (4800 S 188th Street)

Please join us for this long overdue return to Highline of Paul Dorpat and Jean Sherrard, with a repeat of their ever-popular "Then and Now" photos.

Dorpat has written his column for The Seattle Times’ Sunday magazine since 1982, and has published a dozen books, including three volumes of regional now-and-then photographic comparisons drawn from his columns. Historian Sherrard has been assisting with the "Now" photos since 1999.

Admission is free with Society membership, otherwise a donation of $8 is appreciated. Parking is free.

The Society is especially grateful to Trustees Kitty Milne and Gary Long for their financial support of this program.

Geology writer David Williams

Sunday, March 15, 2:00 pm, SeaTac City Hall (4800 S 188th Street)

We’re turning our focus on local natural history when we host Seattle-based geology writer David Williams. Weaving together stories of crows, bogs, madronas and geology, Williams will suggest new ways to think about nature in our urbanizing landscape.

This excellent program is free to members with membership card. An $8 donation is requested of all others.

Get Ready for Our Online Auction

March 27 through April 14, online

The Society conducts an Online Auction each year to support our museum fundraising efforts.

Please think about what you might donate. We have found that services, restaurant certificates and event admissions sell well here. But, as we have a national online audience, we like to also have interesting art or items to auction.

Please call Cyndi Upthegrove (206-246-6354) if you have an item to contribute to our auction.
