The Pakawalups, a trio of sisters who perform USO-style numbers, entertained a crowd of roughly 100 during the Friends of Ebey’s Summer Picnic Saturday. From left is Cathie Ledray-Senff, Sue Murray and Vicki Grabicki. The fundraising picnic helped bring in more than $10,000 and helped the Friends meet its goal of $50,000 to receive a matching donation for preservation projects in the reserve. “It was a beautiful night for an event, and it was great to highlight another preservation project being done in Fort Casey State Park, which is a valued partner of Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve,” said Kyle Waterman, executive director for Friends of Ebey’s. The event also included a catered dinner and tours of Fort Casey’s battery.
