Thank you to donors!
The SAHS is a cultural center for the Stanwood-Camano community, often a gathering place and public venue for both education and entertainment. The deadly spread of Coronavirus has suspended all of our operations, closing the Museum, cancelling events and fundraisers, and segregating us from each other. This crisis has delivered a serious blow to the Historical Society. We operate on slim financial margins, and are solely dependent on the generosity of donors and our event fundraisers to pay our bills and keep our doors open. Because of this pandemic all such events, including our Spring Tea which is our biggest fundraiser of the year, have been cancelled along with all rentals of the Cultural Center. The impacts of this crisis, and economic havoc it has and will cause, will be felt long after the immediate danger has passed.
We are very grateful to our sponsors this year for our activities. It helps keep our volunteers spirits up even though we are temporarily closed. Several of us are continuing to do history projects at home but we rely on our collections of photographs, clippings, newspapers and miscellaneous writings and oral histories for unique and special interpretation. So we miss being there VERY much! Please continue to support our facilities that house these important collections that embody the heritage of the Stanwood Camano community — Karen Prasse
P.S Consider spending some of you at home time writing, telling or listening to your family history! – If you are on Zoom with family ask questions about their school life, or what their first, second and third jobs were, or what Stanwood Camano looked like when they were young – what buildings and places did they go to, Did they work on a farm or at Twin City Foods or have their own business ….. the questions are endless!”
