Giving honor first to the Harborites who dedicated their time and trust in our ability to reflect their oral histories in this work. Special thanks to the many ― “Telling Our Stories: What Makes Community Work” students who conducted interviews and painstakingly composed these oral histories based on personal testimony, as well as having contributed their original poetic stories, photos and artwork to this effort.

     We would like to thank the support of The Evergreen State College, specifically the Evergreen Foundation for awarding the project a Student Activities Grant and the Academic Deans for their moral and financial support. We would also like to thank Olympic Area Agency on Aging for their technical contributions to this project.

     Finally, we would like to thank our faculty, Stephen Buxbaum and Carolyn Prouty and extend special expressions of gratitude to Suzanne Simons for her facilitative guidance throughout this process.
