Samish groundbreaking

Representatives from the Samish Indian Nation, the City of Anacortes and the Anacortes School District help break ground on a new Samish early learning center Thursday, Sept. 15.

A lack of childcare and service for the youngest members of the Anacortes community continues to be a barrier for families all over the island, according to area leaders. 

The Samish Indian Nation is making strides to ease the problem with help from the state and federal governments and area service clubs.
