First Fed offers free celebration on Sunday

PORT ANGELES — First Fed is throwing a free community party on Sunday to celebrate its first 100 years as a local community bank.

It all started in Port Angeles 100 years ago. The only community bank headquartered on the North Olympic Peninsula, it opened its doors in 1923 as the Lincoln Savings and Loan and made its first home loan on April 18, 1923 for $500.

Since then, the name and many other aspects have changed, as the bank has expanded to 16 locations in Clallam, Jefferson, King, Kitsap and Whatcom counties.

On Sunday, festivities will begin at 11 a.m. and continue to 9 p.m. on Oak and Front streets in Port Angeles.

North Oak Street will be closed to West Railroad from 6 a.m. to midnight Sunday.

Complimentary parking will be offered at Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.; the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St.; and the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St. A dedicated parking shuttle will provide transportation to the festivities and the parking lots between 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Live music, two stages and children’s activities are planned, in addition to a beer garden and food vendors.

The outdoor main stage at Pebble Beach off Front Street and N Oak Street will host a lineup of musical acts.

Abby Mae and the Homeschool Boys will perform at noon, followed by Lady A at 2:30 p.m., Snotty Nose Rez Kids at 4:30 p.m. and headlining the evening, The Daddies (formerly known as the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies) at 7:15 p.m.

The Love Local Showcase will provide a platform for community members on the indoor stage of the Field Arts & Events Hall at 201 W. Front St.

Nonprofits will offer a range of free activities such as bounce houses, inflatable soccer, face painting and bird feeder design.

Some of the festivities will take up space in a parking lot used by riders on the MV Coho, so First Fed arranged with the Peninsula Daily News to provide overflow ferry parking in the lot at the PDN warehouse at 304 W. Front St.
