OSU's Team Leader Peter Templin was on hand when some family members of SCVSARs founding members came by to share scrapbooks and stories. ...

On August 19, 1958 14 local men were designated as the first members of the initial Search and Rescue unit under the Sheriff’s office. From this beginning, Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue would incorporate in 1967 as an independent not-for-profit organization serving the community. Today we had the opportunity to meet some family members of two of those founders, Chuck Lee and Jim Leo - Marcia Lee Bumke (Chuck Lee’s daughter), Barb Lindahl (Chuck Lee’s sister-in-law) and Jeff Leo (Jim Leo’s son). They brought with them several scrapbooks and pictures showing the early history of search and rescue in our county. It was our pleasure to give them a tour of Taylor’s Landing and spend some time going through the scrapbooks. We look forward to seeing them again at our 50th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, August 19th!
