Preservation Trust’s 37th Annual Meeting
We are pleased to announce that local historian Mike Vouri will be guest presenter at our 2016 Annual Meeting. Vouri recently retired after two decades as Chief of Interpretation and Historian for San Juan Island National Historical Park. Vouri, who has written extensively about the history of San Juan Island, has teamed up with his wife Julia on a new book that will be released in the near future. The presentation will provide a fascinating glimpse into the early days of island life. “I’ll be looking at preservation in terms of historic footprints. Our islands are full of them. They remind us of who we are and how far we have come,” says Vouri.
Join us on May 7 at the San Juan Island Yacht Club, just a short walk from the ferry landing. Over lunch with your family of SJPT members, Executive Director Tim Seifert will brief you on recent accomplishments and current projects. Following the lunch program, an optional, naturalist-led hike on the recently-acquired (but not yet paid for!) Zylstra Lake property is offered to all.
To register for the Annual Meeting and optional field trip, please call us at (360)378-2461 or mail $20 per person to PO Box 759, Friday Harbor, WA 98250. We hope to see you on May 7!
