Pair to share their Sequim childhoods at historical group gathering

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — Doug McInnes and Bob Clark will talk about their memories of growing up in Sequim at the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales lecture series Sunday, Nov. 3.

They will talk at 2:30 p.m. at First United Methodist and Congregational Church, 110 E. Seventh St.

History Tales is free and open to the public. Parking and entry to the church’s social hall are on Laurel Street.

“As Sequim has been celebrating its 100th birthday this year, this is a chance for residents to hear some unwritten history of the town’s rich agricultural heritage,” said Kathy Monds, historical society executive director.

She reminds residents that this will be the day clocks are set back an hour, ending daylight saving time.

McInnes was born in Sequim in 1929, and the stock market crash that prompted the Great Depression came soon after.

His family had moved to the area in the 1860s.

While he spent some time away — he graduated from the University of Washington and worked for Boeing — he has spent much of his life in Sequim.

Clark is another Sequim native. His family came to Dungeness in the 1850s.

He has spent his entire life here and is known for his involvement in the community.
