Seahorse Project

This is for Ocean Shores residents and all visitors.  In April Dan Klennert, a driftwood sculpture artist, is coming to Ocean Shores to teach a workshop on making large animal figures out of driftwood.  Most of them will be horses but proba...bly not all of them and they will decorate the median on the main streets of the city.  PLEASE help gather driftwood for our "See Horse" project.  Check out youtube - ocean shores "see horses".  This video will explain the type of driftwood to pick up.  Gathered driftwood can go to the old fire station, a pile has been started.  Please call me with any questions, we would love to have everyone help out on this project.  Judy Horn 253 350 3147

Razor Clam Digs

Clam diggers can return to coastal beaches Tuesday, Jan. 28 through Sunday, Feb. 2 to dig razor clams during the last of three openings this month.

Dan Ayres, WDFW shellfish manager, said conditions for the upcoming dig should be much better than during the last opening in mid-January.

“The surf has calmed down, and we have some excellent low tides this time around,” Ayres said. “Success rates should be much improved during the next opener.”

Upcoming digs are scheduled on the following dates, beaches and low tides:

Aberdeen to proclaim February 20th as Kurt Cobain Day

 The City of Aberdeen will proclaim February 20th as “Kurt Cobain Day” according to Mayor Bill Simpson.

At Wednesday’s meeting, the proclamation states, “Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements.”

The proclamation gives special recognition to the efforts of the Aberdeen Museum, Tori Kovach, Denny Jackson, Randi Hubbard, and other volunteers who have worked to recognize Kurt locally.

Simpson said that the proclamation will be read on February 12th, and the day may spread into a Kurt Cobain Week as plans develop.

February 20th would not be a singular event, but recognized yearly within the city.
