Orcas Center, what a wonderful gift you are to the community!!! We know all the great entertainment you offer us and our lives here are better for that. Do we on Orcas stop to realize how lucky we are to have the facility to use? You saved our day Friday. The Catholic Church had an extra large funeral service. We have a small building and it was impossible to plan a reception to follow. The generous response for use of the Orcas Center was the “saving grace” of a very difficult occasion. Because of you it was possible for the family and friends of Hollie Sare to gather after the service in a beautiful place for their final farewell. Thank you for being there and being so supportive of our situation.
On Wednesday, April 21, 65 adults and teens came together for the Prevention Town Hall Meeting. A yummy chili and cornbread supper and a night of lively discussion and sharing was made possible by dedicated volunteer members and Partner Organization leaders of the Orcas Island Prevention Partnership Coalition. Big thanks go to the organizing committee of Jean Henigson, Carol Vincent Hall, Sara Lyle, Barbara Skotte, Julie Pinardi, Candace Bodenhamer, Moriah Armstrong and Julie Pinardi. These ladies preplanned, helped publicize, extended invitations and pitched in on the evening with food, set up and clean up. Also contributing to these efforts were Tony Pinardi and Kyle Hall and many of the participants, who stayed after and made it all that much quicker and easier! Diane Berreth graciously served as moderator, and Laura Trevellyan, Pete Moe, Barbara Skotte, Margie Sabine, Sarah Davis, Lindsey Anderson, Bobbi Lowry, Margie Doyle, Steve Gresham, Kyle Hall and Carol Vincent-Hall and Iris Parker Pavitt were our table facilitators.

Motorists and bicyclists in Washington have exactly the same rights, rules and responsibilities in sharing the road. Tips for motorists:
