With decades-long ties to Orcas, now that Gavin Glenn is here he is not going anywhere.

“I am here to stay!” he said at the grand opening of The Aviator, a new event facility at his family’s hangar in Eastsound.

The Orcas Island Chamber of Commerce combined its monthly mixer with Glenn’s opening on Aug. 26. Islanders walked into the venue on a red carpet and enjoyed appetizers and drinks from his catering company, Asher and Olive.

A&O has been offering Orcas wedding packages that includes event planning, chefs, cake artists, prop makers, photographers, floral designers, DJs and more.
