Dine for scholars, every bite counts | Letters

Spring is here and we are hoping for another great turnout this coming Thursday, March 27th for the annual Dining for Scholars day.

I would like to encourage everyone to come out and support local scholarship by simply dining out sometime during the day or evening.

This year the following restaurants are graciously offering to donate a portion of their proceeds to our scholarship fund:

Roy’s, Café Demeter, Hungry Clam, Roche Harbor’s Lime Kiln Café, Blue Water, China Pearl/Kung Fu Pizza, Spring Street Deli, Vic’s Drive In, Rumor Mill, Haley’s Bait Shop & Grill, Cask & Schooner, Mi Casita, Coho, Roche Harbor’s McMillan’s Room & Tops’l.

The mission of San Juan Island Service Scholarship (formally Dollars for Scholars) is to support higher education and promote volunteerism among our community’s youth. Students who have completed a minimum of 80 hours of volunteer community service during their high school career are eligible for a scholarship through our program.

If helping to grow volunteerism in our community appeals to you, please join us by Dining for Scholars this coming Thursday!

June Arnold, President, SJI Service Scholarship
