When the Exchange burned a few weeks ago, the Actors Theater of Orcas Island lost a valued resource.

Director Doug Bechtel relied on the Exchange for all variety of props, costumes and supplies for the theater’s productions.

During their recent performances of “Hotbed Hotel,” the Actors Theater passed the hat and raised $1,435 from their audiences to support reconstruction of the Exchange facility.

Doug Bechtel presented a check to Orcas Island Community Foundation Director Hilary Canty to deposit in the Phoenix Fund, the account established by the Exchange to support rebuilding efforts.

If you are interested in contributing to help the Exchange rise from the ashes, mail a check to The Orcas Island Community Foundation, PO Box 1496, Eastsound, WA 98245.  Checks should be made out to OICF with the “Phoenix Fund” in the memo line.  To donate with a credit card, visit www.oicf.us.
