Kitsap Historical Society announces 2013 Heritage families

BREMERTON — The William Fenton Howe Family was announced as one of five families that will be honored Sept. 20 during the third annual Heritage Family Banquet presented by the Kitsap County Historical Society. The Howes will represent South Kitsap.

All five Kitsap families have a history that dates back 100 years or more. According to Megan Bradley, museum program coordinator, the families being honored this year were chosen from nominations submitted by the community and have met the following criteria: each family has roots that date back a century or more, each has made significant contributions to their community, and there are members of the family still residing in Kitsap County.

Other families being honored are the James Columbus Haddon and Lulu Davis Haddon Family representing Bremerton, the Montgomery/Munro Family representing Bainbridge Island, the Paul and Turi Paulson and Helge and Sophia Lofall Family representing North Kitsap, and the Hilstad/Grahn Family representing Central Kitsap.

The banquet is set for the Kiana Lodge and historic photos from each family’s private collection will be shown as well as a taped interview with the family representative, followed by a recognition and awards ceremony for each family.

The Kitsap History Museum is located at 280 Fourth St.
