HAPPY BIRTHDAY, J.P.!
Friday, April 1st is Julius Pierpont Patches‘ birthday! No foolin’! You can join other Patches Pals in celebrating the love and laughter at three different locations throughout the city.
Top Pot Doughnuts, along with PEMCO Insurance, will be hosting a celebration at both their flagship café at 2124 5th Ave in downtown Seattle and at their Renton Landing location. Stop by for doughnuts, free souvenir photos, trivia, prizes, and more between 10 a.m. & 2 p.m.! You can also sign the petition for the Patches Pals Washington State License Plate at either location. A volunteer from Seattle Children’s Hospital will be on hand to take donations for the license plate fund at the Renton café only.
And if you can’t make it to either Top Pot event, or just want to extend the festivities into the evening, there will be an informal Patches Pals Gathering at the J.P. and Gertrude statue, Late For The Interurban, in Fremont! Yours truly, the webmeister of JPPatches.com and designer of all the J.P. Patches products from Archie McPhee will be there with some inside info on some new goodies coming this year! Shhhhh… don’t tell anyone! It’s top secret! And I may have a few other surprises under my magic hat!
I’ll also be gathering signatures and answering questions about the Patches Pals Washington State License Plate campaign! Let’s make this a reality!
We hope to see all of you Patches Pals come out and keep the spirit of J.P. alive at any or all of these events! If you can’t make it, you can celebrate in spirit by watching some old videos on our I.C.U.2-TV page!
Happy Birthday, Julius! Look in the dryer!
