The next Historical Matinee will cover Mapping Deer Harbor in the ‘30s and ‘40s. The lecture features Jeannine Lehmann Rodenberger on Sunday, June 16 at 3 p.m. at the Orcas Senior Center. Call 376-4849 for additional information. Jeannine grew up in Deer Harbor on her family’s dairy farm off Cormorant Bay Road then known as Salmon Bight Road. The dairy’s beautiful barn, built in 1945 and now owned by Gary Piaget, was included in the Museum’s Historic Barn Tour last October.
Jeannine will talk about some of the prominent buildings in and around Deer Harbor during her youth, using a map of the area and historical photographs to bring it to life. She will be joined by a special guest Betty Jean Hall, another early Deer Harbor resident, with whom she attended the West Sound School for her early grades. Jeannine and Betty graduated from Orcas High School in 1952 and 1953 respectively.
