Make way for a new nonprofit, FANS! (and soccer camp, too!)
You might have gotten the mailing sent out last Saturday by a group of dedicated young volunteers, but here it is on your beautiful, (albeit slightly dusty) computer screen.
Here’s the story about a new support group on the island – here’s more from Jan Bollwinkel-Smith:
FANS, or Families and Neighbors Support Island Rec, is a newly organized nonprofit committed to helping fund the San Juan Island Park and Recreation District. As public funding and community needs are not always equal, FANS is there to help even out the difference.
Along with asking for members and donations, FANS will be hosting some great fundraisers in the future, including a carnival at the Elementary School in September. All contributions are tax deductible.
FANS and Challenger Sports are proud to announce a FREE drop in soccer camp for youth aged 3-12 on Saturday, June 23rd. No pre-registration necessary, but please allow time to sign the participation waivers as you drop off your soccer star (about 15 minutes before start of session).
Camps will be led by British Soccer Camp coaches from 9am-10am for ages 3-5, 10am-11am for ages 6-8, and 12pm-1:30pm for ages 9-12. The extended version of this activity is the popular British Soccer Camp, which will be happening this July, and Tetra Brazil Camp, which happens in August. Both of these programs are currently open for registration through Island Rec.
