Salute for support of Pig War Picnic | 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 4th of July Pig War Picnic a big success again this year.

We could not have done so well without our sponsors: Islander’s Bank, Browne’s Home Center, Whidbey Island Bank, Chicago Title, Ace Hardware, Stephanie Johnson O’Day, IPS, Law Office of Skinner & Saar, Farmer’s Insurance, Sound Financial, Luxel Corporation, Lawson Construction, Printonyx.

A big thanks to our entertainers as well: The Tease, One More Time Band, Mike Vouri, and the Rythmatics.

We served more than 1,300 meals on the 4th and couldn’t have done it without the wives, husbands, friends and family members that stepped in to help us.

Last but certainly not least, are the Boy Scouts, who were real troopers, no pun intended.

We are happy and proud that almost all of the money we made will go directly back into our community in the form of college scholarships, support for Hospice, Head Start, Family Resource Center and the Red Cross, donations to community projects as requested by high school students, and various other programs that benefit our community and our children, in particular, in a multitude of ways.

Again, a heartfelt thanks to all.

On behalf of FH Kiwanis Club, Samantha Bryner/San Juan Island
