Montgomery-Munro family of Bainbridge honored as 2013 Heritage Family in Kitsap County

The Montgomery-Munro family of Bainbridge Island is one of five families in Kitsap County that will be honored as a 2013 Heritage Family by the Kitsap Historical Society, officials with the historical society announced Wednesday.

The five families each have histories that date back 100 years or more, and the families will be honored at the Kitsap County Historical Society's third annual Heritage Family Banquet in September.

The other 2013 Heritage Families are the Paul and Turi Paulson and Helge and Sophia Lofall family representing North Kitsap; the Hilstad-Grahn family representing Central Kitsap; the James Columbus Haddon and Lulu Davis Haddon family representing Bremerton; and the William Fenton Howe family representing South Kitsap.

The families being honored this year were chosen from nominations submitted by the community. They were selected because each family has roots that date back a century or more, each has made significant contributions to their community, and there are members of each family that still call Kitsap County home.

The 2013 banquet will be held Friday, Sept. 20 at Kiana Lodge in Poulsbo. 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.
