Despite Grace's position that the new millennium won't begin until 2001, "the calendar is our millennial calendar, at least a warm-up," said Mayor-for-Life Jarvis. "Let's put it this way: we won't run out of calendars. Everything you will ever need to know about Grace is in this calendar--all the places and faces. It includes a landmark map of the town, as well."
The calendar features 21 cartoons by Ken Steacy, "illustrator for life" for the town newspaper, The Greater Grace Gazette, which enjoys distribution in all 50 states, Argentina, and Tanzania, according to Jarvis.
The calendars are available in Woodinville at Molbak's and the At Home Cafe; in Bothell at Alexa's Restaurant and Main Street Hair Design; in Kenmore at Ostrom's Drugs; and in Maltby at the Maltby Cafe.
