LESLIE G. "BUD" EATON
1941 - 2014
"Bud" was born in Niagara Falls, New York on July 31, 1941 and passed on October 4, 2014, from complications of a long illness. He is survived by his wife Annette and grown children Shelby and Ross (April) and grandchildren Marcus, Sarah, Seth and Grace, and sisters Nancy, Carol and Sandee (Chuck). He also leaves many cousins, nieces and nephews and a special S.O.N. Mike. Bud was preceded in death by a baby brother Jeffrey and parents George and Corinne Eaton.
While not at work, Bud spent much of his time volunteering and being involved in the Community. After he retired he was President of the Kenmore Community Club and the Bothell High School Alumni Association. He also was an active member of the Kenmore Heritage Society where he helped to develop the Kenmore City Flag and worked on many other projects. He was an NRA Life Member and a volunteer and avid supporter of the Friends of NRA. Bud was a member of the Masonic Ashler Lodge #121. He and Annette enjoyed classic cars and attended a special car show in Winnemucca, Nevada each summer for 24 years. Bud loved history, especially the Civil War, and was always excited to tell you historic facts. He knew the complete story of the Kenmore Fire Department and had been compiling its history for many years.
Bud spent 42 years in the Fire Service. He started in the Kenmore Fire Department as a volunteer and worked his way through all the ranks and finished as Chief. The last 12 years before retirement were spent with the King County Fire Investigation Unit as a Fire Marshal.
There will be a Celebration of Life held on Sunday, November 9th at 2:00 PM at the Nile Temple, 6601-244th St. S.W. Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043.
Remembrances may be sent to Bothell High School Alumni Association, North Puget Sound Friends of NRA or Make-A-Wish Foundation.
It's November, time to collect a few non-perishable food items for the Hopelink giving baskets.
I have already delivered the food and toys I gathered at last month's family reunion. My family brought more toys than food, they said toys were more fun! As I have mentioned, I have already delivered those to Hopelink, with credit given to our club. I have the receipts to give to our new leader Marty.
Please bring food for Thanksgiving this month. Next month is our Christmas toy drive.

THE ART OF TEXTILES
The Arts of Kenmore presents THE ART OF TEXTILES group exhibit - Kenmore City Hall, September 19 to November 14, 2014
Ongoing Exhibit Hours: Monday thru Friday 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Featuring works by:
Staci Adman ● Ti Locke ● Holly Forbis ● Lois Gaylord ● Meg Gray ● Laura Grover ● Gay Jensen ● Liz Moncrief ● Donna Prichard ● Julia Rapinoe ● Lynne Rigby ● Pam Seaberg ● Carol Tanner ● Cyndi Wolfe ● Judith Warren
The Art of Textiles Exhibit showcases a wide range of subject matter celebrating styles from Americana quilting to abstract felting applications. Since the beginning of civilization, textiles have been at the heart of the human experience for uses of clothing, shelter, and decoration. From the Silk Road to the Industrial Revolution, textiles were as valuable as the spice trades. Traditionally, textile art is founded in fibers such as yarn or silk, cultural patterning such as Celtic or Hardanger, and handcrafted techniques like crochet and needlepoint have been handed down from generation to generation.
Today's textile artist is no longer bound by traditional tools-of-the-trade. Modern textile art is becoming a no-holds-bar mixed media genre often maneuvering old and new techniques into greater expressive forms, incorporating new materials such as metals or repurposed materials, blended with painting or ceramic applications into expressive artworks. The latest expression even ventures into the realm of temporary public art as YarnBombs: the technique of wrapping trees with knitting or crocheting! We welcomed works into this exhibit that cross the line between traditional and modern.
If anyone knows about anyone who is ill or just needs a card of support, please call me. Thanks!

The importance of club members and interested supporters of the community participating in club work parties cannot be stressed enough. Without the help more of this work will be farmed out which will raise the cost of our operations. Please remember this is your club house, you own it and it is up to you to help maintain it.

HELEN WARBURTON 1914 - 2014
Kenmore Community Club member Helen passed peacefully at about 8:30AM Tuesday, November 11, 2014. At her request, there will be no memorial services scheduled. She was a lovely lady and lived her long and active life to the fullest.
Helen, we will miss you and your golden personality.
I want to express my thanks to all of you that sent cards and telephoned me in the last few weeks. I will always welcome phone calls. I do keep a busy schedule, so be sure to leave a message. I also appreciate the members lowering the flag to half-staff in October. It is a great honor for a person who was so patriotic.
I was notified by Mayor Baker that the City Council will be doing a Proclamation on November 3rd before the city council meeting proclaiming November 9th as "Bud Eaton Day" in Kenmore. What a nice tribute.
The rentals in the club are starting to get a little busier for November and did well in October. With the holidays coming we should see an increase. There is a work party on the calendar for Saturday, November 15th if anyone is interested in doing a few chores and outstanding projects. We try to start at 9:00 AM and work for about five or six hours. There are windows to be washed and a little touch-up cleaning on walls, baseboards and doorways. The blinds need some care also. I will have a long list on that day and you may pick what you are interested in helping with. I also have a rental that night so we will have made sure the club is clean and ready for our renter's party. We have not had our usual work parties during the summer, so things really do need to be spruced up.
Please remember HOPELINK at our potluck. We have done well in the past years donating money and non-perishable food. Think about what you might need to prepare your Thanksgiving Dinner to make it special for your family. Thanks to Bev Peterson again for delivering everything we collect.
As we look toward some new board members for 2015, be sure to thank Marty, Bobbie, Kathi, Joe, Karen, and Les and Ed. Also Don our newsletter editor and Marlene for hospitality (she writes a great note for get well, sympathy etc.) and to John our auditor and again Bev for Hopelink.
KEEP YOUR MIND OPEN TO A DATE WHEN YOU CAN HELP WITH A WORK PARTY. THERE IS A LOT OF EXTRA CLEANING, ETC. THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.
The nation's finest men and women who volunteer to serve in the armed forces are stationed all around the world to support friendly countries and protect our country's interest in those lands. Please give a moment of your time and say a little prayer for these brave volunteers who are serving in this nation's military.
