This winter, Village Theatre brings Southern humor to the stage with “Crimes of the Heart,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy by Beth Henley. Set in the small town of Hazlehurst, Mississippi in 1974, the play follows three sisters as they come together in the midst of a very bad day.
The 9th Annual Stinky Spoke will take place Saturday, Jan. 23 in Woodinville. If you’re not familiar with the event, it’s a unique fundraiser for Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center, put on by a group of volunteers outside of Little Bit’s organization. The ride starts and finishes at Redhook Brewery, and the riders complete a clockwise route on the Tolt Pipeline, Collin Creek, Redmond Watershed, Powerline and Sammamish River Trails. They collect playing cards along the way, and those who score good poker hands win prizes at the “after party” in the big tent at Redhook.
Gordon Gray, age 70, had a passion for the sport of triathlon. He was an active local swimmer, cyclist and runner. This past September he was hit and killed while riding his bicycle. On the day of his accident he was riding his bicycle, training for the USA Triathlon National Championships, in which he was to compete. As a tribute to Gordon, the Gordon Gray 5K run will be held to honor his passion for running and the sport of triathlon.
