Help plan future council elections

A group is forming to talk about how our local election for Vashon-Maury Island Community Council board members should be run. Do we continue to vote at the ballot box? Do we do an Island-wide mail-in ballot? Do we do some sort of combination of both? Help formulate the options at a meeting at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 1, at Café Luna.

For more information, call Hilary Emmer, a member of the community council board, at 463-7277.

ACOA support group forms

A new Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) group has formed on the Island. Adults who suffer from parental alcoholism or other family dysfunction due to alcohol can benefit from this support group, where participants share their experiences, strengths and hopes for recovery from the lingering effects of this disease.

The group meets from 7 to 8 p.m. Mondays in Classroom B at the Vashon Presbyterian Church. For more information, call 567-4834.

Editor’s red bike stolen

Late Monday night, while Leslie Brown, The Beachcomber’s editor, was finishing this week’s paper, her red, multi-speed bicycle was stolen from in front of the office. (Yes, she forgot to bring it into the office, as she usually did.)

Call 463-9195 with any hot tips about its location.

She’d really like it back. And who would have the audacity to ride the editor’s bike around town?
