Lynne Jordan, Cortes Museum
The Cortes Island Museum & Archives extends a BIG thank you to the Linnaea Farm Society for their generous gift of six large photograph albums from Linnaea School, covering the years from 1987 to 2001.
A dedicated team of Linnaea parents spent four enjoyable Sunday afternoons identifying students, parents and community members in the photos. The parents were Christine Robinson, Meinsje Vlaming, Ayami Stryck, Janet Forsythe, Kathy Smail, Fawn Baron, Denise Wolda and Ruth Riddell.
The albums are being catalogued into the Museum's Archives Collection and will be available for viewing at the Museum -- a big draw for former Linnaea students and their families in the years to come. THANK YOU Linnaea Farm Society for preserving these photographic 'time capsules' of Cortes history.
