The first award was given out in 1970. It has been awarded annually with the exception of two years – 1971 and 1985. This year’s winner will be the 62nd recipient.
In some years, more than one person won, such as in 2012 when Steve and Darlene Conkle were named co-Citizens of the Year. This has happened a total of 10 times – 11 if you include 1977’s winner, the Mukilteo Volunteer Firemen.
Some families have been represented more than once. The Taylors lead the way with four winners, and the Browns, Colliers, Coffins, Conkles, Kidds, and Ameses all have multiple winners as well.
