Scholarship fund

Spring is here and we are hoping for another great community turnout on Thursday, March 31 for the annual Dining for Scholars day. Our “Dining” goal is to raise $6,000 for our scholarship fund and you can help by simply dining out for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or all three) on this day. Last spring we granted twenty-three, $1,000 scholarships to Friday Harbor high school graduates, so we really need your support to replenish our scholarship fund.

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

Café Demeter, Market Chef, Hungry Clam, Spring Street Deli, Roche Harbor’s Lime Kiln Café, China Pearl/Kung Fu Pizza, Vic’s Drive In, Haley’s, Cask and Schooner, Mi Casita, Coho, Roche Harbor’s McMillan’s Room, Van Go’s Pizza and Rumor Mill.

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 through our program.

If helping to grow volunteerism in our community appeals to you, please join us March 31. See our online ads for dining locations and times, or visit us on the web at We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your direct donation is fully tax deductible. With sincere appreciation for your support.
