The Hartley Family Reunion

May 2, 2010


It was a great honor to have Roland Hill Hartley’s descendants take part in the “Hartley Family Reunion” May 2, 2010.Their enthusiasm, synergy and prolific stories magically transformed the “Everett Neurological Center” into the “Historic Hartley Mansion”. It is with great pleasure that I am able to share with you the Hartley family stories, anecdotes and history. (see below). Organization of this event would not have been possible without Co-Hosts Patti  Larson, my office manager, along with Larry Smith and Bob Brown. Finally, the family reunion will be preserved for future generations through the video archive captured by Richard and David Eaks (Puget Sound Video) and the wonderful photography of Taylor Roalson Baker.  Enjoy!
