Derby Days organizers seek residents’ photos

Derby Days will be held on the Redmond City Hall campus on Saturday, July 11. That may seem like a long way away, but not for this year’s organizers. The theme is “Through the Decades” and the Derby Days committee is hoping Redmond residents will share a photo or two that expresses their experience at past Derby Days.

Derby Days will be held on the Redmond City Hall campus on Saturday, July 11. That may seem like a long way away, but not for this year’s organizers. The theme is “Through the Decades” and the Derby Days committee is hoping Redmond residents will share a photo or two that expresses their experience at past Derby Days.

It’s that spirit of community that the committee wants to capture through the use of photos from the last seven decades, but they need the help of Redmond residents. For those interested in sharing a few photos with the community, there are two ways to do it.

If the photo is (or can be) digital, please e-mail it to mgronlund@redmond.gov.

However, if it is not digital, mail it to Marta Gronlund, City of Redmond, 4SCC, P.O. Box 97010, Redmond, WA 98073-9710. Please include a self-addressed envelope so the photo(s) can be returned to you. With both types of photos, please include the family name and the year of the photo.

The committee needs photos by April 29 to be included in the Derby Days brochure. For more information, contact mgronlund@redmond.gov or (425) 556-2427.
