October 24, 2018 marks the centennial of the death in WWI of Harry Causland, who was raised on Guemes Island and Anacortes. At the October 22, 2018 City Council meeting, Mayor Gere presented a signed proclamation to Randy Leon Good, great nephew of Harry Leon Causland.
Mayor Gere read from an earlier 1921 city proclamation:
“It is fitting that we should again express our feelings of loss and sympathy and proclaim to the world that we have not forgotten.”
