History Tales features longtime grange advocate

Robert “Bob” Clark, long-time Sequim resident and grange member, will talk about the history of granges both locally and nationally at the Clallam County Historical Society’s History Tales presentation, set for 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5, at the First United Methodist Church, 110 E. Seventh St., Port Angeles.

This free program will be held in the social hall; parking and entry are on Laurel Street.

Clark’s extended (and extensive) family has been in the Sequim area since the early 1850s.

Clark has been active in community affairs for decades. One of his passions is the granges that have had an impact — both socially and politically — for years. He was named the State Grange Leader of the Year in 2014 and has held numerous positions within the grange including the 13th State Master for the Washington State Grange from 1989 to 1995.

Established in 1889, the Washington State Grange is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of Washington’s residents through the spirit of community service and legislative action.

Clark is known to many as the former Clallam County treasurer, a position he held from 1958-1989. He was the Grand Pioneer of the Sequim Irrigation Festival in 2008 and operates a bed and breakfast in Sequim.

History Tales events are free and open to the public. For more information, call the Clallam County Historical Society’s office at 360-452-2662 or email artifact@olypen.com.
