Where to find summer fun

The Snohomish County Tourism Bureau’s 2005 Spring-Summer Calendar of Events is available at libraries, visitor information centers and chamber of commerce offices.

The new calendar features events, fairs, festivals, performing and visual arts, music, museums, crafts, markets and attractions through September.

Fashion show benefits seniors

The Camano Island Senior and Community Center offers its annual fundraiser for the Senior Congregate and Senior Meals on Wheels programs.

Summer Splash Fashion Show is planned for 11:30 a.m. April 16 at 606 Arrowhead Road, Camano Island.

The Senior Meal Programs serve nearly 20,000 Camano area seniors each year. The center provides essential programs and a daily meal for seniors.

The fundraising helps replace money lost to cuts in government support.

Most of the fashions will be available for purchase at the end of the show and in a number of sizes and colors. Karen’s Kitchen will show kitchen wares. Christine’s Tea Cottage will provide information on iced teas. Merrill Gardens will offer a buffet lunch and desserts.

Tickets, $20, are available at the Second Chance Thrift Store and the Camano Island Senior and Community Center. Reservations are due by Friday. Call 360-387-0222 or e-mail cssa@ camanocenter.org for details.

This Jailhouse Rocks! is planned for 11 a.m. April 15 at the new Snohomish County Jail, 3025 Oakes Ave., Everett.

The event supports the Snohomish County Center for Battered Women. Get fingerprinted, get your mug shot, join in a lockdown, dine on the living floors of the new jail and see life from inside the jail.

Leave a donation for the center on your way out. Make a reservation by Friday at 425-259-2827, ext. 12.
