The Rainier Valley Historical Society’s annual meeting will be held Saturday, April 29, at Pioneer Hall in Madison Park. The meeting will feature a talk by Jennifer Ott, HistoryLink.org historian and co-author of the upcoming publication Waterway: The Story of Seattle’s Locks and Ship Canal. We will also screen a short film by videographer Vaun Raymond from his documentary film series Legacy of the Locks & Lake Washington Ship Canal. There will be displays about the effects of the lake lowering on Southeast Seattle; a light lunch will be served. This event is free and open to the public.
Nancy Dulaney of the Rainier Valley Historical Society gives us an overview of the South Canal, an alternative vision of a privately funded waterway to connect Puget Sound and Lake Washington at Wetmore Slough in Southeast Seattle. http://psmhsinsidepassage.blogspot.com/2016/05/making-cut-rainier-valleys-wetmore.html
