*Cleaning up Sky:* Mayor Fred Black presents past, present and future of
Skykomish at March 17 historical society meeting

The Monroe Historical Society invites the community to its annual membership
meeting Thursday, March 17 at the Tualco Grange. Guest speaker Skykomish
Mayor Fred Black will present the town’s history, cleanup activities and
future plans.

For the past several years the BNSF railway and the Department of Ecology
have been cleaning up remnants of the town’s past as a hub for the Great
Northern Railway by removing contaminated soil and restoring the town’s
buildings. Most of the cleanup work should be completed by summer and Black
is launching a public campaign to attract visitors. “Skykomish: A Great
Northern Town” is the new slogan and plans are in development for a
railroad-themed town visitor center.

Before the presentation the *Monroe Historical Society *will elect officers
and new trustees. A potluck dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by the
presentation. The Tualco Grange is located at 18933 Tualco Road. Please
bring a dish to share. All ages are welcome.
