Come celebrate nearly 30 years of commitment to healthcare on Orcas Island as Dr. David C. Shinstrom, Dr. Dave to most, hangs up his stethoscope in retirement. Dr. Dave is hoping many of you can attend so he can express his appreciation for the honor it has been to serve some of the medical needs of Orcas.

There will be a get-together with catered food and beverages on Sunday, Sept. 19, from 2-5 p.m. in the Madrona Room at Orcas Center. The main event is at 4 p.m.

If you would like to help, contact Aaimee Johnson at or Anne Presson at
