Victorian Valley Chapel changes ownership

Submitted by Sara and Allen Smith.

The Smith family would like to thank the Orcas Community for its gentle and considerate care of the Victorian Valley Chapel over the 22 years that we have owned it.

Always opened to the public, there was never an incident of misuse or vandalism. A special acknowledgment of appreciation to Susan Osborn, who long before we owned it, understood the Chapel’s mission.

May the new owners, when they acquire it, understand its importance to the island and the amazing vibrations in the garden and in the land surrounding. The doors are open this Christmas for meditation from Dec. 23-25. May your lives be filled with joy.
