The Era of South Whidbey Fishing Resorts Fundraiser Bus Tour
At one time South Whidbey had more than 35 family-run fishing resorts.

Learn about this bygone era and what it was like for both resort owners and guests.

Join Bill Haroldson, President of the South Whidbey Historical Society and author of Resorts of South Whidbey Island on a guided Whidbey Shuttle bus tour to learn about the heyday of South Whidbey Fishing Resorts  (1920s to the early 1960s).

Hear first-hand accounts of the resorts from:
Jim Cooper (Jim and Johns Resort)
Darla Famer (Bush Point Resort, Hap's Resort, plus mercantile)
Don Allen (Dons Cottage Grove Resort)
Craig Windmill Holman (memories of Shore Meadows Resort),
plus several others!

Well meet at Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland at 1 p.m. on Sunday, August 11 for a 15-minute presentation while enjoying smoked salmon and other appetizers.
Then its all-aboard the comfortable shuttle bus as we make stops at Robinsons Beach, Shore Meadows, Bush Point, Greenbank for a vantage point of several eastside resorts, then down to Jim and Johns Resort site in Clinton.

After refreshments at the Haroldsons home on Brighton Beach well head back to Freeland at about 5:30 p.m.

Attendees will receive a copy of Resorts of South Whidbey Island plus a Gabbys Guide Fishing Resort Map (a $17 value).
