Brightly colored balloons and a cake featuring a red roof welcomed guests to a party at Country Meadow Village celebrating “One and One Hundred”, the one year anniversary of Sedro-Woolley Museum Satellite Branch opening at the Country Meadow and the 100th annivereary of Northern State Hospital, dedicated in 1912. Author Mary McGoffin read excerpts from her recently published book “Under the Red Roof-One Hundred Years at Northern State Hospital” and led a discussion on the impact the hospital has had on the region. Signed copies were for sale at the event and proceeds helped raise money for the museum.
Sedro-Woolley Museum Executive Director Carolyn Freeman brought new items for viewing as part of the celebration. “This space at Country Meadow Village has brought the museum story to so many people,” Freeman said. “It gives them a sampling of what they can find at our main location.”
