Adopt A Pet Or Get A Burien Documentary DVD At Today’s Farmers Market
In addition to another sunny summer day, there are at least two great, unique reasons to come to today’s Farmers Market at Burien Town Square, which runs from 11am – 6pm:
1. The Humane Society’s MaxMobile is here, which means you should come shop, buy fresh produce, arts & crafts and possibly…a PUPPY (or kitten)! The bright, 33-foot, custom-built yellow RV will be here until around 3pm, providing pet adoptions on the spot – all you have to do is fill out a form, pay a fee and you can leave the market with a new friend.
2. We’re selling DVDs for “B-Town: How Burien Came Into Its Own,” the documentary film shot last summer that’s all about Burien, will be available for purchase at The B-Town Blog’s booth at today’s Farmers Market for just $15. All proceeds from sales will be donated to Hospitality House, a Burien-based shelter which has helped hundreds of homeless women “get their groove back.”
But you’d best act fast – we only have 10 7 copies left, and we’ll be at our booth from 11am – 3pm. We’re mid-way down 5th Place SW on the east (library/city hall) side near the Burien Town Square– just look for a big ol’ LCD monitor and The B-Town Blog banner and a couple of goofballs huddled around a computer.
Featuring interviews with local dignitaries like founding City Councilmember Sally Nelson, first Mayor Arun Jhaveri, current Mayor Joan McGilton, as well as businesspeople like Dan “The Sausageman” House and many others, this film has very high production values and is a great tribute to our city.
