Cheap Treasure: 2013 Edmonds Historical Calendar Available for Preorder

The popularity of the 2012 calendar took Edmonds Historical Preservation Committee by surprise.

An historical calendar featuring cool pictures of old Edmonds will be back for 2013.

The overwhelming response to last year's Edmonds calendar, which was offered for free at locations around town, took everyone by surprise, said Larry Vogel, chair of the Edmonds Historic Preservation Commission.

"We were stunned by the excitement generated by the 2012 calendar," said  Vogel. "It was a beautiful piece, and demand quickly outstripped supply, leaving lots of folks disappointed."

Meg Keogh, a commissioner with the Edmonds Historic Preservation Commission, says she has received more than 1,500 orders already for the 2013 calendar and will be ordering 2,500 more.

The calendar will not be free this year, said Keogh, as the $5 cost is being used as the major fundraiser for the nonprofit commission.

Interested? You can preorder your 2013 historic Edmonds calendar  Nov. 15 at the Edmonds Third Thursday Art Walk. The Edmonds Historic Preservation Commission will take preorders in front of the Edmonds Chamber Office, next to City Hall on Fifth Avenue North.

Preorders will also be taken at the annual lighting of Edmonds' Christmas tree in Centennial Plaza on Nov. 24.

As with last year, the 2013 calendar brims with historic images and information. This year's calendar features the Edmonds Log Cabin, the Mosquito Fleet the Yost family and much more.

For more information, or to order by phone, call Meg Keogh at 206-484-4184 or e-mail makeoghqwe@gmail.com.
