99 Years on Vashon: Celebrating the Life & Legacy of Gene Sherman

May 28 @ 6:00 pm

Tuesday, May 28th at 6:00PM

Celebrate the long life of Gene Sherman, with a filmed interview of four generations of the Sherman Family and a slideshow of Gene and Peggy’s photos taken on Vashon from the 1940s – 1970s. The evening will be a fundraiser for the Vashon Heritage Museum an organization that that Gene supported in innumerable ways. Gene is remembered as a man of great wisdom with an ability to recall details and facts from years earlier. Many Heritage volunteers depended on him as the source for historic information, perspective and as a sounding board to piece together local history. In film you’ll be able to hear many stories and with the slideshow images you’ll be able to step back in time and see Vashon as it was.

Suggested $10 donation, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
