Students succeed with your support | Letters

On behalf of the San Juan Island Service Scholarship Board I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who came out on March 27 to support our annual Dining for Scholars event.

It was wonderful to see so many community minded friends and families dining out to support the mission of volunteerism and scholarship here on San Juan Island.

We also want to extend our gratitude to all of our partner restaurants who donated a portion of their March 27 proceeds to the SJI Service Scholarship fund. Without their generosity this event would not happen.

So, I would like to offer a sincere thank you and encourage us all to continue to support the following local businesses... 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 and Tops’l.

The mission of San Juan Island Service Scholarship 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 from our organization.

If helping to grow volunteerism in our community appeals to you, please join us by making a donation to our scholarship fund by visiting us on the web at www.sjiservicescholarship.org or mailing your support to SJI Service Scholarship, P.O. Box 3366, Friday Harbor, WA, 98250.

We are a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and your donation is fully tax deductible.

June Arnold, Board president, SJI Service Scholarship
