HIGH PRAISE for IDIPIC from the PENTAGON: Tara Hizon, Oak Harbor City Councilwoman, informed IDIPIC recently: “Last month the Oak Harbor City Council had the opportunity to spend time with Navy leadership at the Pentagon. Many of those we met with had been stationed at Whidbey NAS, and when asked what stood out for them/what the community was doing right, several responded with:” ‘IDIPIC.’ “They said your program was powerful and effective and they’ve never seen it replicated anywhere else.”
