At the Laurel Tree

vvlaurel_tree_002Local photographer Lee Hendrickson displayed some of his work at Laurel Tree Gallery’s recent grand-reopening. On the wall are photos of crystals taken through a microscope. Hendrickson’s website explains that the colors in the crystal photographs are the result of refraction of white light through the many crystal facets, much like a prism effect. For more information on Hendrickson’s work, visit Hendrickson also offers photography classes.

Sr. Center remodeling is a go

  • Written by Valley View Staff

CARNATION–The Sno-Valley Senior Center has received federal funding through CDBG to do an extensive remodel on the center, including retro-fitting sprinklers and filling in the soaring hall with program rooms upstairs.

As a result, the center will be needing to relocate for the fall and anticipates moving in the last few weeks of August, just down the road to a local camp. The center expects to be at that camp location for 4-6 months.

Staff are working to get all of the phone numbers and connectivity transferred, and program coordinator, Kate Miller, has been busy coordinating with various programs for the move. Visit for more information.
