Meet Titus and Hops

Your penguins now have names: Daddy penguin is Titus and his son is Hops.

We received dozens of great names, and we appreciate the wonderful response from readers, members and Facebook followers. We love that so many of you wanted to keep the names of the penguins “historic” to downtown Kent!

The penguins enjoyed the snow this week, while it lasted, and they thank you for giving them names finally. To continue the fun, we’re going to do a “Take a Selfie with the Penguins” contest. Please take your photo with the penguins and submit it to KDP via email at We’ll announce a deadline and prizes for the best selfies later.

Again, thanks so much for participating!
