Doug and Janet Anderson

Janet’s history with Trout Lake goes back to 1924 when her father’s family, Rev.& Mrs. George Good, came from Alaska to be the pastor of the Presbyterian Church. About 75 years ago the Good family started a family tradition of coming back to Trout Lake every Labor Day weekend for a family reunion camp-out; a tradition that continues to this day! Doug and Janet Anderson have contributed count- less hours and energy to the Trout Lake Community. Between the two of them, they have given of themselves in a wide variety of ways; serving on the Arts Council, the Trout Lake Fair Board, Doug is the Secretary, music organizer and usually announces for the parade. He is Secretary/Treasurer of the Trout Lake Care Board, supervisor for the Back Packs 4 Kids program, and he volunteers at the
Community Dinners. Both are retired school music teachers and Janet con-
tinues her teaching here in Trout Lake, ages 6 to 86, in her Piano Studio. Doug is a frequent substitute teacher at Trout Lake School where Janet often shares her piano talents. Doug also uses his voice as the sports announcer for track meets and basketball games. Both are one of the two music teams for the Presbyterian Church where Janet is also the Treasurer and Doug is the Clerk of Session, and both have positions in the regional Cascade Presbytery. Another out-standing achievement was forming the Trail Angels Program, which transports Pacific rest Trail Hikers to and from the trailheads, so they can come to Trout Lake and stock up on supplies, have a hot meal and receive re-supply boxes. A documentary film of this ativity, The Trail, is being launched on You Tube this summer. “Trout Lake has been a wonderful place to retire with the people who all enjoy and share the beauty and serenity of this valley.”
