Thanks to FANS fest supporters – Letters

What a FANtastic outpouring of community support we had for our annual FANS Carnival on Nov.19 at the fairgrounds!

The board of Families and Neighbors Support Island Rec would like to thank all of the families who attended the carnival — we hope all of you thoroughly enjoyed yourselves.

We also want to thank the many islanders who helped make this event such a success, like:

Business sponsors who helped defray expenses: Roche Harbor Resort, Larry’s Autobody, IslandPetroleum, Friday Harbor Drug, Eclectic Lady Land Recording Ranch, Herb’s Tavern, The ToothFerry, Brandli Law, OneStop Storage, David Waldron Architect and Kiwanis Club of Friday Harbor

The many indispensable volunteers: Friday Harbor High School and Spring Street InternationalSchool students, the Leos Club, Rachel Otis (sno-cones!), Carey Musburger and Boy Scout Pack4090 (cotton candy, popcorn and nachos!), the facepainters ensemble, Printonyx, Andy Urbach and the Sheriff’s work crew, Shannon Rishel and all the amazing cake bakers, Angela Light (readings!),sign designer Angela Sutherland, and a long list of adult volunteers who made sure that everything ran so smoothly.

We have lots of photos to share on our website at

We look forward to even more FANS fun in 2017.
