Bring Back ‘What’s Happening’ | The everyday world
Bring back “What’s Happening”
I really appreciated John Hughes’ letter to the editor on May 29: “Don’t take this journal for granted.
Of course, I always appreciated what John had to say all the years he was with The Daily World.
I subscribed to Aberdeen World since I was 19. I don’t remember what year it became The everyday world.
I am 84 years old now. I don’t intend to have a computer. I like to hear from me in newspapers and on television.
I realize that with this pandemic a lot has not been in the papers. If and when we get back to some kind of normalcy, the only thing I hope will be back The everyday world is the column “What’s going on?” “
To be able to read what organizations we have, what their programs are, meeting places, dates and times, I think this is very important – also useful for new people arriving at the port.
Thanks to the port managers
Recently we started sifting through my late mother’s belongings and came across a watercolor painted by Grays Harbor artist Frances Lew. Having nothing to say other than the name of the artist, the town of Westport and the location of the building depicted, we sent a hopeful email to the Westport Harbor offices on Lamb Street to get more information.
We were delighted to receive a quick and thoughtful response from Westport Commercial Director Molly Bold and later Harbor Commissioner Tom Quigg sharing both a brief history of the artist and the former Lamb Construction Company that Mrs. Lew painted.
While we learned that the monetary value of the painting is low, the help they offered was invaluable. My mother, Lillian Moeller, spent her childhood in Aberdeen and always had a love for the area, visiting Aberdeen, Westport and Tokeland whenever she had the chance. Obviously, the beauty of the area is matched only by the warmth of the people who live there.
Molly Bold and Tom Quigg are incredible ambassadors for your community, and we wanted to publicly thank them for sharing their time and precious relationship with our grateful family.
