We heard from the women in June, now it’s time to hear from the men. At When I was just a boy…we will hear fascinating stories of what it was like to grow up on old Vashon, from the 1920’s through the 1940’s, and more stories of memorable Vashon events occurring during the following decades. Guest speakers will be Bill Garvin, Tom Lorentzen and Gene Sherman. The talk will be introduced and moderated by a great story teller himself, Joe Meeker. During the talk, photos from old Vashon, courtesy of the Vashon-Maury Heritage Association, will be projected. One such picture, above, is of the Cove Dock which no longer exists. We will hear stories involving Cove Dock from Tom Lorentzen, who grew up on the Westside.
You won’t want to miss this talk. Learn what life was like "back in the days" and stories about Vashon events that shaped their lives from men who grew up here on our Island home. When I was just a boy…recollections of old Vashon will begin at 4 pm on Sunday, October 13 at Bethel Church. This talk is part of Vashon Community Care’s Telling Stories Speaker Series, by and about Vashon Locals. Ticket sales are by donation and are available in advance at Vashon Bookshop or VCC.
