Recognizing the significance of the “Most Endangered Property” listing, the people of Vashon will have a public opportunity to “stand up” for the historic Mukai house and garden on June 1, 2013 at a This Place Matters event. Friends of Mukai, together with the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation, and King County 4Culture are co-sponsoring the Saturday afternoon event, from 1:00 to 4:00 on the street adjacent to the Mukai property. The event will include a mass photo event at 1:30 in front of the Mukai house, followed by speakers, music and a street fair.
“The Mukai house and garden is an important part of our shared Vashon history and must be protected,” says Glenda Pearson, president of Friends of Mukai. “This event is an opportunity for those who support preservation and restoration of the Mukai property to come together and affirm their commitment to the revitalization of this important Vashon resource. Come to this fun event, bring your friends and neighbors, and together let’s Stand Up for Mukai!”
