2015 0717 school reunion2

A reunion of students and others associated with the old Fidalgo School on March Point is being planned for July 27. The school, shown in this photo from about 1954, operated from about 1867 until 1957.

Among those planning to attend are Sylvia Johnson McKee, the daughter of the popular Principal and teacher, Arnell Johnson; Mark Carlson, the great-great grandson of Almina Griffin, the first teacher at the school and grandson of Martha Griffin Mankins, a long-time teacher at the school; Floyd Lunsford a former teacher; and students who attended from about 1930 until the school closed to make way for the refineries.

The reunion is a potluck lunch affair at the Summit Park Grange at 8716 Stevenson Road, Anacortes, beginning at about 10:30 AM. A collection of old school photographs from the Anacortes Museum will be on display. Anyone having photos is requested to bring them to be scanned and added to the collection.
