1:00 PM on Saturday, March 7. In honor of Women’s History month, The Camano Schoolhouse presents Women’s Work Productions in a 30-minute preview of “Carried by the Current”, an award-winning play about The Women’s Commonwealth of Belton, Texas. In 1866, in a bid for independence, these women sold eggs, butter and cheese, formed a Common Fund, and then started doing the town’s laundry. This menial labor on the part of married women angered the townspeople so the women moved in together, creating the prototype for the first safe house. From there they built and ran The Central Hotel, which became so successful, they changed the entire community’s perception of women’s role in society. But what led to their bid for independence? Join us to find out more about this captivating story from history. Refreshments included. A suggested donation of $10 is requested. All proceeds fund the repair and preservation of the historic 1906 Camano City Schoolhouse and the newly acquired Camano City Firehouse, which are located at 993 Orchid Road (just off Chapman Rd.) For more information, call Candy Bowden at (425) 399-0923
