|The Hors d’oeuvres & History
Some of you will remember when the SAHS had several programs scheduled
each year. Beginning in September, 2014, we are trying something new.
The Society will host a series of fun history programs at the Floyd
Norgaard Cultural Center. “The H & H”
is a play on on the name of our favorite mascot, the shortest railroad in the world
that once ran between the twin cities of Stanwood and East Stanwood.
The H & H in this case, stands for the Hors d’oeuvres & History. Appetizers and sparkling juices will be served at each event and a history program will be presented:
Sunday September 14th, 2014 4:00 p.m.
“One Trail, Many Voices: Songs of the Oregon Trail,” A Humanities Washington
presentation, featuring Hank Cramer, one of the best-loved folksingers
in the West, who will share the history of the trail and the songs the
pioneers sang as they made their arduous way West.
Sunday, October 12, 2014 4:00 p.m. (Columbus Day) —
“Columbus … What happened?”
John Yarnell, Port Susan Middle School American history teacher will
explain why, in Washington State, kids in school no longer sing
“Columbus, hero, brave, and strong.”
Sunday November 9th, 2014 4:00 p.m.
“Early Photographs of Snohomish County Indians.”
David Dilgard, Everett Public Library Historian will share photographs
