Past History of the Innis Arden Club Family Salmon Barbecue
The Barbecue originated on the sands of Richmond Beach (at the mouth of Boeing Creek) where the George Etsell family and some of their neighbors held a salmon barbecue on the 4th of July. Each year more Innis Arden neighbors asked to be included until attendance became so large in 1967 that the Clubhouse was first used. That year the attendance was 119, and the date was changed to a Wednesday. In addition to salmon, hot dogs and buns were served. All food except the hot dogs and salmon were brought by the ladies attending. Tickets were $1.00 for adults, .85 for teens and nothing for other children. The price of salmon was .96 per pound and the men of the committee and cooks did the filleting at the clubhouse the morning of the event. Some attendance statistics:1968-163,1969-408,1970-350,1972-337,1973-409,2003-250.
Do any residents have any Salmon Barbecue pictures from the good ol’ days?
