Wildlife Photos. Thanks to Fred, who lives near the Illahee Preserve, for the following photos:
Port Meeting Wednesday. The Port of Illahee meets the second Wednesday of each month at 5 pm at 5500 Illahee Road. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. The sign provides the details.
Missing a Cat? “The attached photo is of a cat that’s been coming around for the past week (6000 block of Illahee Rd). First day it showed up it was skittish and hungry. Since, it’s coat has been getting dirtier and she is more defensive; maybe getting used to being outside.” Let us know if this is your cat so you can be reunited.
Thank you for attending the Kitsap Sun’s “Our Big One” forum at the Admiral Theatre on Tuesday!
