Harvest Jubilee History

During the 1930s the Stanwood Commercial Club held a Harvest Jubilee parade.  It was held until about 1942.  The above photograph is from a collection of snapshots taken over the years and donated to SAHS by Viola Schmidt Michael.  It shows an elaborate float along the brick street (270th) in front of what was then the First National Bank building (now the First National Professional Building.) A short history was published in one of our past newsletters for you to read.

Thank you to our local businesses for support.

See previous post below for details.  We are soon planning for new building to expand our displays and storage needs.  But in the meantime, we thank these businesses for their time, skills and equipment use to make way for our future plans.  Meanwhile, as soon as weather warms up we will be working on finishing the painting of the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center.

Please help with your donations and with volunteer time to help us prepare for opening the museum and facilities by late spring or summer.  Contact us!
