Peace symbol says it all: Mary Miller’s secret shapes warm the Valley

It was not at all surprising to see Mary Miller form the group at her recent “Heart of the Valley” photo session into a giant peace sign. After all, Mary’s style is all about a laid-back love of all things Snoqualmie Valley.

As I approached the crowd on the field, it was clear this this May 19 event was bigger than Mary’s first venture in 2012, despite the iffy weather.

Everybody had their own reasons to come—for memories, for scrapbooks, just to be part of a community gathering. Everybody left with a sense of sastisfaction and belonging.

Bad things can happen in any community. Good times come and go, too. Some things stay the same. Community spirit is always around in every generation.

Mary Miller’s giant community hug proves it.
