BREMERTON — Five Kitsap families with histories that date back 100 years or more will be honored on Sept. 20 at the third annual Heritage Family Banquet presented by the Kitsap County Historical Society.

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.

“Every little corner of every little area of the county has its own wonderful history,” Anita Williams, a longtime historical society member, told the Port Orchard Independent.

The 2013 Heritage Families 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, the Hilstad/ Grahn Family representing Central Kitsap, and the William Fenton Howe Family representing South Kitsap.

The 2013 banquet will be held Sept. 20 at Kiana Lodge.

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.
