Thanks for Pig War Picnic’s ‘big success’ | Letters

The Kiwanis of Friday Harbor wishes to thank all of the people and businesses that donated so generously of their time, talent and resources to make the Fourth of July Pig War Picnic a big success again this year! We could not have done so well without our sponsors:

• Islander’s Bank

• King’s Market

• Heritage Bank

• Browne’s Home Center

• Ace Hardware

• Ron’s Island Meats

• Chicago Title Insurance Company

• The entertainment, our master of ceremony Pat O’Day

• Keith Highlanders Pipe Band

• One More Time Band

• The Chameleons

• Mike Vouri

We also thank the family members, husbands, wives and friends who were indispensable.

Without them, we could not have done everything that was needed to do to serve over 1,300 meals that day!

We are so happy and proud to let you all know that almost all of the money we made will go directly back into our community in the form of college scholarships, supporting The Family Resource Center, Island Rec., The Animal Protection Society, donating to community projects such as the Christmas gift project, and the Halloween candy drive and various other programs that benefit our community and in particular our children in a multitude of ways.

Again heartfelt thanks to all who participated! Cheers!
