For art’s sake

Those of us who think it would be fun to volunteer at the Edmonds Arts Festival but don’t know how to go about doing it have run out of excuses.

The Edmonds Arts Festival will host an information fair at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, at ArtWorks to explain volunteer opportunities and help folks discover what jobs are the best “fit” for them. ArtWorks is located at 201 2nd Ave. S. in Edmonds.

The popular regional festival needs volunteers to help with the juried art galleries, festival store, wine bar and bistro, information booth, children’s arts-and-crafts activities and more.

This year’s festival is set for Friday through Sunday, June 16-18 at the Frances Anderson Center.

Take a seat

Henry Veldman has been appointed by the Woodway Town Council to fill the seat vacated by Steve Abel when he moved out of town at the end of 2005.

A 10-year resident of Woodway, Veldman is chief executive officer of Western Washington Medical Group headquartered in Everett. He and his wife, Anita, a registered nurse, moved to Woodway from California, where Veldman worked for the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program for 27 years.

The new councilman served on the Woodway Planning Commission prior to his recent appointment.

Taking his place on the Planning Commission is Jim Wilmer, owner of Edmonds-based Wilmer Communications, an advertising and marketing agency serving the hospitality industry.

The Wilmers have lived in Woodway for about 1-1/2 years, and before that, resided in Edmonds.

There’s still an open position on the Planning Commission. Interested Woodway residents may obtain more information on it by contacting the Town Hall.
