Each year, the Orcas Island Community Foundation (OICF) features a “flat person as an ambassador for our GiveOrcas.org Holiday campaign. On Tuesday, Dec. 5, OICF revealed the 2017 Flat Person as Coach Dennis Dahl. The three clues posted to the OICF website and Facebook page were:
- This person is outstanding in their field.
- Like a deer or a doe, always on the go
- Like Pele or Cher, this person is often known by a single name.
OICF had a total of 145 guesses since Nov. 28. Dahl selected from a bucket of the 41 correct guesses and Susan Stoltz won $1000 toward a nonprofit of her choosing in the www.giveorcas.org catalog. Stoltz selected to give the $1000 bonus to the Orcas Island Community Resource Center.
The 2017 catalog features 22 island nonprofits and will be online through Dec. 21. Shop www.giveorcas.org and give a gift to yourself and to your community.
