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.

How does this look for a sticker that can go a a family’s historic objects that they want to keep track of?

This object has historic significance for:
Our family, Blaine, Birch Bay, Whatcom County, US
This removable sticker was placed here by_________

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.

If you hope to attend, give Bea a call at 206-660-7161, or give Pat a call at 360-371-2070 or 360-223-6571.

We are interested in discovering the history of Birch Bay and it’s surrounding area. We are interested in preserving it and introducing it to others. If you wish to join us in this endeavor, just sign up at the bottom of this page with your name and e-mail. We are starting out with two members, Bea Ball and Patrick Alesse.

  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.
    Sign me up!


  2. Do you wonder about Columbus Day? I found this really good.
