Eastside Stories from Vancouver
It’s always fun to see what FHHS grads accomplish after they go off into the world. Do you remember Lauren Brem? She lived here with her folks George and Stacy, and her sister Krysta. She graduated in 2005 and now lives in Vancouver BC. She just sent this note over about a cool video she helped create and she would love to share it with you. Here’s Lauren with the story…
Dear San Juan Update,
My name is Lauren Brem and I grew up in Friday Harbor, and my parents (as well as their parents) lived there for quite some time as well. My mom and dad owned Amigos and the Hot Shop.
I have since moved to Vancouver, BC Canada and have settled here working with an investment company, but I have really worked on finding my passion through art. I recently got together with an amazing group of friends and we won a grant from the large cable television and internet provider in Canada, Telus. We were given a grant to make our idea a reality and we just released our 10 minute documentary, “Eastside Stories”, this past week. There was a sold out public premiere at a downtown Vancouver Theatre, and we are seeing the video start to be shared across various social media pages… including so many folks I grew up with in FH.
I hope you find it as special as we have.
