Thank you for making Jazz at the Labs a success - Letter

  • Sep 14, 2016 at 1:30AM

I'm delighted to say that the University of Washington Friday Harbor Labs' 16th Jazz at the Labs fundraiser in support of the Friday Harbor Labs (K-12) Science Outreach Program was a great success! It was a perfect summer evening for excellent music, delicious food and generous giving. Dr. Adam Summers the "fabulous fish guy" was entertaining and engaging as he collected donations from the audience in support of two terrific science projects - the 9 day Biotechnology Invasive Mussel Lab and the Diver for a Day Program conducted aboard the Research Vessel Centennial.

Thank you land bank | Letter

  • Sep 8, 2016 at 1:30AM

I just wanted to give a shout out to the San Juan Island Land Bank and the library for sponsoring the Discover San Juan Scavenger Hunt. All summer long, we had so much fun exploring the public preserves around our amazing island. My sister and nieces live in Nashville, Tenn. and visit Friday Harbor every summer. We loved hunting for the tile rubbings together and finding new areas so well cared for. Islanders are lucky to have the Land Bank secure these special spots for us to enjoy. Sidney and Sam had a great day on Labor Day hiking to the last two venues. Booklet completed!

(Editor's note: The quote mentioned below ["If this becomes a problem," Larsen said, "let me know immediately and I will see what I can do."] appeared in the article "Affordable housing,the dilemma continues" on Aug. 24 and was his response to the USDA affordable home loan program issue not the housing problem.)
