Efforts in collaboration

We are speculating but assume this sign probably was made for Hwy 99 promoting Stanwood and East Stanwood, [more below]

This photograph was among several photographs donated by Shirley Danielson probably used in the Stanwood NEWs.  We haven’t yet found an article documenting this effort in community development. For those new to the community, Stanwood and East Stanwood were once two towns who had a healthy rivalry but occasionally came together for a common purpose such as promotion of the area.  The name of the local food processing company, Twin City Foods references this historic era and retains its historic name.  For more on the story, find copies of the Stanwood Story by Alice Essex, check with us for copies and more information.  Click here for an online article. Please Contact us if you know more about the folks who might be in the photograph or anything about the occasion.
