Evan Thompson / The Record South Whidbey community members recently gathered to celebrate the installation of a plaque and boulder that commemorates the six-year effort of a group that prevented Saratoga Woods from being developed into a 200-room resort. From left to right: Sharon Emerson, Cynthia Tilkin, Diane Kendy, Kim Drury, Charlie Snelling, Betty Azar and Larry Harris. Engraved on the plaque is the following: “The preservation of this special property in 2001 was made possible by the six-year effort of Save the Woods on Saratoga, a group of determined neighbors, with vital support from the Whidbey Camano Land Trust, Island County Parks and the South Whidbey community.” - Evan Thompson / The Record
