Spirit of a Ghostly Child
Seventh Annual
Seattle, WA
October 21, 2011

Georgetown, one of the oldest and most colorful neighborhoods in Seattle, has a thriving historical society. Each year, Friends of Georgetown History offers a nighttime walking tour through the back alleys and darkened streets of the community. Highlights include ghosts of former residents, accident victims and the occasional Odd Fellow. During the tour, one is introduced to the Comet Lodge Cemetery,  Georgetown Castle (reported to be the most haunted site in Seattle) and the old County Hospital (where the deceased were buried on the grounds or tossed in the nearby Duwamish River).

Volunteers from the community channel the spirits of early Georgetown residents. This tour is a Halloween treat and scarefest all rolled into one.

Migration: The Transformative Power of Birds and Nature

Date: Thursday, October 27
Refreshments: 6:30 p.m.
Program begins: 7 p.m.
Location: Northlake Unitarian Universalist Church, 308 Fourth Avenue South, Kirkland (map below)

Nature photographer Michele Burton presents "Migration: The Transformative Power of Birds and Nature," an evening of photographs, humorous stories, and inspiring tales about critters and birds who just may hold the keys to enlightenment (or at least know where the garage door opener is hidden)!

Michele's photography is featured in "The Wild Within: Wetlands of the Washington Park Arboretum." She spent 200 hours over the course of a year kayaking, walking, and photographing in the wetlands for the book project.

She is the author of "Woodland & Wetland: Puget Sound Birds," a limited-edition coffee-table book, and "Patterns in Nature," a collection of kaleidoscope images. She teaches photography at Bellevue College and leads photo workshops.
