Today was a day of celebration and thank you for Ballard Landmark residents Carroll and Muriel Felleman.
For 781 days the Fellemans worried about their grandson, Joshua Fattal, who was captured on July 31, 2009 while hiking in the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan. Iranian officials say Fattal and his two friends illegally crossed the border into Iran. Fattal and his friend, Shane Bauer, were released from the Iranian prison last week and have now returned home. Their third friend, Sarah Shourd, who was detained with them was released last September.
The celebration today was more of a “thank you” to the Ballardites who have supported the Fellemans during this ordeal. (Photos courtesy Ballard Landmark.)
