We will meet at the Blaine Library on Monday, February 3 starting at 5:30. So far we will cover the following:
1. Rundown of the last meeting.
2. Birch Bay Historical Society as an incorporated group.
3. Birch Bay Historical Society as a 501c3.
4. Kathy will show her presentation on Gorden Sullivan’s reed organ.
5. Pat will show and pass out paper replicas of Blaine’s Wooden Nickel.
6. Discussion on Blaine forming a group and how we can help.
7. Sharing of Blaine Banner’s newspaper stash that has been placed in the care of the Birch Bay Historical Society.
8. A clumsy demonstration on the use of a smartphone for recording people’s historical stories.

Our next meeting pf the Birch Bay Historical Society will be 5:30 to 7:300 at the Blaine Public Library. We are hopeful that enough people from Blaine will so up so they can start their own group.

If you get a chance to read the article posted the bottom of he blog. You will find it gives some interesting insights to Columbus Day.

Bring any ideas you have. I have an idea for fund raising.
Our goal is to put the Birch Bay Historical Society together. Bring your stories. Bring your photos. Bring your desires. We will see what the possibilities are.

  1. This is wonderful! I was visiting Chelan a few weeks ago and found a flyer for their Historical Society and thought, OMG, we need one of those. Thank you for taking this on.
    I ordered my copies of “Shintaffer Road” Vol 1 and 2. I bet there will be some good contributions from that.
