Aberdeen Mayor Bill Simpson proclaimed July 2 as Aberdeen’s Founder’s Day at last nights city council meeting.

After the second Public Comment portion of the meeting, Brian Little brought up that July 2 was Sam Benn’s birthday and that there was no record of there being a founder’s day, Councilman Pete Schave made a motion in favor of making July 2 officially Founder’s Day.

After the motion was unanimously supported Mayor Simpson made the proclamation.

Benn and his wife Martha landed at the mouth of the Wishkah River on March 13th, 1868.
