Happy Birthday, Chris Wedes!



We had some fun all around Seattle celebrating J.P. Patches’s (The Clown’s) birthday on April 1st this year. There were events at two Top Pot Doughnuts locations sponsored by PEMCO and a gathering of Patches Pals at the Late for the Interurban statue in Fremont.


But let’s not forget that April 3rd is the birthday of the man behind the nose, Chris Wedes (1928-2012). Chris would have been 88 this year.


Happy Birthday, Chris! Thank you for all the years of fun and laughter and for your tireless dedication to making this world a better place! Your impact on our lives was tremendous.
