The Queen Anne Chamber of Commerce will throw a community appreciation party for former Video Isle owner Craig Wilson on Feb. 6 at Queen Anne Lutheran Church (2400 Eighth Ave. W.), from 4 to 7 p.m. The public is welcome.

Wilson sold his Queen Anne and Fremont stores to Tonya Perfect after 28 years. He plans to move back to northern Arizona, where he grew up.

Among the businesses contributing to the party are Metropolitan Market Uptown Queen Anne, Ken’s Market, Queen Anne Umpqua Bank, Dante’s Inferno Dogs and Le Reve.

For reservations, email Pat Sobeck at or Tonya Perfect at
