   In celebration of the graduating Bothell High School Class of 2000, the Bothell Historical Museum has put together a display of past Bothell High School graduation photographs. The nine class photographs are from as early as 1914 and were made possible by a grant of $750 from The Northshore Citizen Charity Fund.

   A research committee of Bev Shmir, Karin Poage and Terri Malinowski put faces to names in the photographs. In order to complete the project, Museum members donated additional funds. Each class photograph has been professionally restored, framed, and labeled by FrameWright Custom Picture Framing and Gallery.

   Photographs will be on display in the Hannan House and the schoolhouse. The display opened May 25 and runs through June. The museum is located in the Park at Bothell Landing, 9919 NE 180th St., Bothell.
