Historical Society: A Time to Remember

Shoultz family Christmas circa 1960.

Please join the Guemes Island History Society on Monday, December 10th at 7pm, in the church for our year-end get together. The evening will be highlighted by what is becoming a traditional reading of the 1888 Christmas gathering on Guemes Island. It's a remarkable story beginning with an idea to share time with neighbors and friends during the holiday season and how the community responded to bring the idea to fruition.

The years have passed, but the spirit of 1888 remains. Let's gather to share some holiday treats and remembrances of by-gone days. Please bring a favorite toy, memory, or family tradition from your childhood to share. GIHS will provide the treats.

The regularly scheduled GIHS business meeting will follow the event. All are welcome to attend. For more information about the GIHS please contact Tom Deach: phone: 360-708-2582 or email:
