At the June Community Council meeting, attendees voted on 3 different logos for the organization. Here is the one that was chosen:
The meaning is to show how much our community loves our island and cares for it. The concept was the idea of Camille Reeves, and Camille’s sister did the original drawing of it. A professional Vashon designer, Creighton Chamberlain, reworked it into the form you see here. He kindly took his pay in Vashon Time Bank hours.
The colors are land green and sea blue. The font is Aleo. To celebrate the new council’s return, Creighton went with a font that came from a font foundry that’s relatively new – 2013. It’s a rounded edge slab serif that is comfortable and open. It’s also from Lisbon, a city with a strong maritime connection, and has also launched many ships.
Hello council members!
You may have noticed a recent change to the website. At the bottom of each page, a quote on community, or possibly Vashon history, will be displayed. Each time you refresh a page or go to a new one, a new quote will appear. Let’s celebrate and draw inspiration for the community we’re helping to build!
If you have suggestions or ideas for quotes to add to the rotation, email email@example.com.
A number of people have been working on a logo design for the Vashon-Maury Island Community Council. After many ideas and many discussions, we have narrowed it down to the top three logo designs. Now it is time to have the whole community vote on which one of these three they like the best.
As you think about these logos, please keep two things in mind:
With those ideas in mind, here are the 3 final logo designs.
Logo 1. Hands Holding Island
Logo 2: Tree of Hands
Logo 3: Vashon Lighthouse
We discussed these three logos at the May 17 online meeting of the Community Council and will have a final vote at the June 21st online meeting.
Here are the two ways you can attend Community Council meetings, which begin at 7pm, the 3rd Monday of every month:
We are delighted to announce that two new members of the Board of Directors have been selected by the board, and confirmed at the April 19 meeting of the Community Council. Please welcome John Affolter and Michaela Olivarri. Their profiles will be posted on the website soon. We look forward to their ideas, wisdom, and help.
More and more families and workers on our island are forced to move to Kitsap or Tacoma because affordable housing is becoming ever more scarce. People who have lived here many, many years are forced to leave their friends and community support networks. What are we going to do about this as a community?
The Community Council is beginning by gathering people’s thoughts and ideas, and forming a committee to work on this vitally important, and thorny, issue. We are beginning by having a conversation at the March 15 meeting. Send your thoughts, ideas, concerns, questions, and possible solutions to firstname.lastname@example.org. All will be gathered for the new committee to review. Are you willing to help do research and work on this issue? Please let Diane know this, too.
