Linda Porter – Free Spirit

Linda Porter - Free Spirit

The Guemes Island Historical Society continues its tradition of great presentations diving deep into the historical treasures of our island.

“Linda Porter: Free Spirit.”

Presented by: Carol Deach & Nancy Bush

October 9, 7 p.m.

Guemes Island Community Center

As an artist, master gardener, realtor and part original owner of the Red Snapper Gift Store, Linda clearly touched many lives. She spent most of her life involved in the Guemes and Anacortes communities, while also teaching printmaking at Skagit Valley College.

Linda's involvement and personality has inspired the two women to share her history. This presentation will cover her early years, her art, her entrepreneurship and her lifelong exuberance.

As usual, the GIHS business meeting will follow directly after the program. All are welcome to attend. Please contact Tom Deach (360-708-2582) for information and comments regarding the GIHS programs and events.
