Friday Harbor's 100th birthday: A celebration islanders will always remember

When islanders look back on 2009, they will remember Friday Harbor's 100th birthday and all the resulting events: The community celebration on Feb. 9, a history book published by Arcadia Publishing Co., the largest Fourth of July parade in memory, the shattering of the last local glass ceiling with the election of a woman to the mayoralty for the first time.

Journal multimedia reporter Jane K. Fox took scenes and sounds from the Feb. 9 community celebration and produced this commemorative slideshow. Enjoy.
