Thank you to our generous sponsors: King's Market, Friday Harbor Drug, the Toy Box and Osito’s.

Thank you to Francis and Rebecca Smith, Lainey Volk, Jerry Henderson, Michael Henderson and Robin DeLaZerda for organizing an informative and visual rescue demonstration, showing us the great skill, cooperation and dedication our emergency workers use when we need them the most.

Thank you to the Red Cross kitchen team – Diane Ludeman, Liza Westphalen and Laura Jo Severson - who kept the food coming and everyone fed as they would when needed in an emergency.

Thank you to Brad Creesy, Johnathan Marler and the San Juan Island Firefighter One Recruit Class who kept very busy teaching the kids Fire Safety.

And most of all, thank you to the community for showing your support for our emergency services. We always welcome suggestions on how we can serve you better from public education to emergency responses.
