In 1907 Constance Olsen, along with a group of women, founded the Utsalady Ladies Aid on Camano Island. It is one of the oldest women’s groups in Island County. Many families down through the years still have family members in the group. Families who moved away and since returned to Camano Island are a part of Utsalady Ladies Aid. New members have added to the warm vibrant group. Utsalady Ladies Aid is devoted to doing good works in the area. Our group holds community picnics, a Christmas area gathering for families and friends, provides scholarships for high school seniors, maintains our building and other community projects.
Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen is the granddaughter of Constance Olsen and is a member of Utsalady Ladies Aid. She is a hard-working member at our dinners. She provides beautiful flowers for our tables from her garden and is generous in her time to our projects. Two examples of her tireless work were her efforts to assist our women in our pursuits to have our building declared a National Historic Site and obtain our tax exempt status. Thanks to her help, these objectives became a reality.
