Island Thrift approved our request in April, for a matching grant up to $3,5000. We raised $2,737 and Island Thrift sent us a matching check. Thank you Island Thrift!
We held our 2019 Annual Appreciation Dinner on Monday,October 21st, at 6 PM at the Elks Lodge # 2362 in Oak Harbor. This is when we get to honor and thank the many people who keep our mission alive. Rick Felici, Island County Sheriff, was our guest speaker. Also in attendance was Oak Harbor Mayor Bob Severns, Oak Harbor City Councilman Bill Larsen and a number of our volunteers, donors, supporters, board members, and helpers. Thank you, Kerry Allen, and Elks Lodge # 2362, for making it a memorable evening!
