Vashon Susans get together | Photo

A GATHERING OF SUSANS: Island women named Susan (and all its derivatives) gathered for a morning potluck at the home of Susie Hedricks on Sunday, July 8. It was the second Susan gathering on the Island — and will not be the last. Thirty-two women attended, enjoying good food (Susans are good cooks), conversation and Susan trivia. The oldest Susan in attendance was born in 1936 and the youngest in 1963. Though the name has fallen out of favor in recent decades, many in the group think it will make a resurgance sometime in the future. Alas, the shih tzus in attendance were not named Susan. - Courtesy photo
