Many to thank for Fair premium book | Letters

The San Juan Island Garden Club again is pleased to announce the publication of the hardcopy version of the 2013 San Juan County Fair Exhibitor’s Guide & Premium Book again this year.

This booklet is dedicated to Edith Dickinson, who has been a stalwart gardener for many years and an inspiration to anyone who has passed her garden or orchards in the past years.

The booklet will be available in public libraries and senior centers on San Juan, Lopez Shaw, Waldron, and Orcas islands very soon. Numerous locations in Friday Harbor (including the Farmers’ Market) and the Roche Harbor Market will have copies for those who are interested.

The San Juan Island Garden Club sincerely thanks all of the extremely generous businesses, organizations, service clubs, and individuals in the community who make the publication of this hardcopy version of the booklet possible.

It fulfills a need again for those who wish to submit entries in the fair, and who may not have access to the online version of the booklet or who choose not to make their entries in that manner.

This is a heartfelt thank you from the San Juan Island Garden Club. Thank you to a very generous community and the advertisers and contributors who helped make the 2013 version of the booklet happen.

We look forward to seeing you at the fair from Aug 14 - 17, 2013. What an exciting time.

Marguerite Bennett, president, SJI Garden Club

Dot Vandaveer, chairwoman, Fair Booklet Committee
