Island County Historical Society to honor Chatfield-Weeks

Island County Historical Society announces that the 2012 honoree for its Autumn Auction and Dinner is Helen Chatfield-Weeks. Wallie Funk was the honored guest in 2011.

“Knowing that Wallie would be one tough act to follow, we all agreed that Helen was the perfect choice,” said Rick Castellano, executive director of the society.

A former ICHS Board member, Chatfield-Weeks has been an asset to her Oak Harbor community and to Island County history as a Navy League booster, one of the founders of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the official Oak Harbor Cheerleader as designated by the city council, and as one of the leading forces in saving and restoring the historic Neil Water Tower, among her involvement in hundreds of other worthy causes.

The auction and dinner will be held Saturday, Oct. 20 at the Oak Harbor Elks Club. Castellano said a wonderful evening is being planned, with great food, beverages, company, a fun auction “and the best way we can think of to honor one of our cherished friends — and to help support one of her favorite causes — the Island County Historical Society.”
