I want to thank the Orcas Island Community for its participation and great support for Orcas Island Prevention Partnership’s Town Hall Meeting on Underage Drinking on March 31. We had a great turnout with over 75 community members – 20 of them teens. I feel fortunate to live in a community that cares so much about its youth and where youth are happy to come to the table and talk with adults about underage drinking. Our conversations were interesting, and I personally enjoyed myself and learned a lot. OIPP will be using the many ideas to support continued reductions in underage drinking and increase protective factors for our youth and community.
Letters from Orcas Island residents on a variety of issues.
Letters received after the July 25 deadline are printed at the end of this article, and will be printed in next week's edition (Aug. 6), unless they come from beyond our coverage area.
The food was delicious, the auction items tantalizing, the auctioneers a hoot. No question about it, the Orcas Animal Protection Society’s fundraiser on June 23 at the Orcas Hotel was a blast. More importantly, it raised a substantial amount of money for our desperately needed, superbly managed animal protection program.
We want to thank the most awesome community in the whole world. We have been awed and humbled by the many offers of help and support. If we had not had the help of you wonderful people, we never would have been able to even attempt to continue on with our daughter’s wedding and the Woodsong Music Festival.
