Letter| Kiwanis thanks supporters

The Fourth of July was a great day for a picnic and an even better day for kids on San Juan Island. The annual Pig War Picnic, presented by the Kiwanis Club of Friday Harbor, was again a great success. The proceeds from this event go back to the children of Friday Harbor.

We were very pleased to give $15,000 this year to 25 graduating seniors who will use the scholarship to attend colleges all around the country. Kiwanis promotes leadership, responsibility, further education, and good citizenship, among other traits. Thank you San Juan Island community and guests for supporting this very important project. We hope to see you again next year for our famous BBQ pulled pork sandwiches.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their support: Islander’s Bank, Kings Market, Ace Hardware, Heritage Bank, Kenmore Air, Ron’s Island Meats, Browne’s Home Center, Chicago Title Insurance Co., and Honeywell Charitable Fund.

Also, Aeronautical Services Inc., Chris Lawson Excavation, Community Treasures, Craig Starr Excavation, Farmers Insurance, Flagship Tents, Friday Harbor Suites, Harbor Rental and Saw, Heuristic Enterprises, Holman Surveying, Island Petroleum Services, Islanders Insurance, MEM Enterprises, Lawson Construction, Petro San Juan, Printronix, Roy’s Island Buzz, San Juan Business Park, San Juan Conservation District Team, San Juan County Fair, San Juan Interiors, San Juan Propane, San Juan Sanitation, San Juan Surveying, Inc., Sound Financial Planning, Inc., Tooth Ferry and Windjammer Carpet Cleaning.
