Thank you GBLHS for giving us the rare opportunity to peek into the lives of the Milotte's and whatRead More it took for them to make their films. I would hope the City of Bonney Lake realizes what a treasure this collection is and will find away for it to be displayed all year round.

The "Island in the Sky", so named by the Milottes, included not only the 4000 square footRead More home and studio, but also the more than 120 acres of land that it sat on, according to documents in the Milotte collection. Alfred and Elma travelled throughout the country giving lectures and presenting slides and films of their world wide assignments for the Walt Disney Studios, according to documents in the Milotte collection. Again according to documents in the Milotte collection, one of the stipulations in the sale of the ten acres at Grainger Springs was the Town of Bonney Lake would rename the springs to Milotte Springs. Although the idea of a film festival to commemorate the works of these pioneers of wildlife cinema photography began more than a year ago, we have a far better understanding of the immense influence that the Milottes had on the world stage. Their story, as presented in the blog articles that have run for the past several weeks, comes from information gathered from the collection that was donated to the Greater Bonney Lake Historical Society earlier this year. So far, just a fraction of the collection has been examined. It is our goal to preserve the photos, films, documents and objects for the benefit of the public, but it will take time and donations to the non-profit Greater Bonney Lake Historical Society to make it possible.

I live by the Tacoma Dome and I'm already bracing myself for the wave of high-pitched screamingRead More coming up the hill from the arena! Lol. I am also stocking up on groceries and essentials tonight so I don't have to venture out tomorrow to brave the Bieber Fever traffic jam!

I sure will miss seeing Act 1 performers doing the Norman Rockwell "Living Art". It hadRead More become somewhat of a Sumner tradition. They are a group of really good people who do really good work. I hope to see them in the near future promoting our community.

Hi Nestor: The good news is the "Living Art Normal Rockwell Windows" will continue withRead More the only difference this year being the actors. It is highly unlikely you will notice any kind of change. SDA looks forward to working with the three theatre organizations in Sumner so that we might include all in our annual events. Have no fear, Act One will be a big part of what we continue to do. We are just adding more to the mix to ensure those who want to be a part of the Sumner community are given that opportunity.
