Scott Gianola | Passages

The Orcas Island community is invited to join in an event to celebrate and remember the life of long-time island resident, Scott Gianola, who died in December 2017. On Sunday, March 4, at 1 p.m., we will gather in the Odd Fellows Hall to toast Scott with stories and remembrances, food, coffee (of course) and the music he loved. Please bring food to share at the potluck, along with BYOB. There will be a collection of non-perishable food or money for the Orcas Island Food Bank.

The internment of Scott’s ashes will take place at 11 a.m. on the same day, at Woodlawn Cemetery on West Beach Road; all are invited.

An effort is underway to honor Scott’s passion for music. A playlist is being assembled at a newly created website, Visit the site to see Scott’s Top 100 and make sure your favorites are included.
