Anniversary of invasion of Iraq

March 19 marks the fifth anniversary of the United States’ entering Iraq. Islanders will be commemorating the date in different ways, from wearing black armbands to trying to get appointments with Washington’s senators who will be back in the state on their March recess.

From 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and throughout the month, Two Wall Gallery is featuring a photography show by Martin Halliwell titled “In Retrospect: America Reacts to 9/11.”

Also Friday, March 7, is the World Day of Peace. Vashon Presbyterian Church will hold an ecumenical prayer for peace at 7 p.m. that will not be political.

Poster chosen for Oz show

Terri Bassett, an artist new to the Island, won the poster contest for Drama Dock’s upcoming production of “The Wizard of Oz.” According to Bassett, the poster is a representation of “what happens in Oz when no one is looking.” It was drawn by hand in Photoshop, she says.

Her poster was chosen by a committee of artists and thespians, none of whom saw the names of any of the contestants until a winner had been selected.
