What’s up ’round the island…
Let’s take a look around the island…
• Sarah Crosby asked me to let you know about this, today:
The League of Women Voters of the San Juans will hold its monthly membership meeting on Monday, September 17th at the San Juan Island Library Conference Room at 1010 Guard Street from 12:00n until 2:00pm. The meeting will be devoted to the proposed changes to the County Charter which are on the November ballot. Speaking against the changes will be Don Pollard, and speaking for the changes will be Ron Zee and Gordy Peterson. Members of the public are welcome to attend and to ask questions of the speakers.
• Whales around the island….have you seen Monika’s blog this morning?
• You know Laura & Eric Concord have taken over running the Wharfside B&B, down in the marina, right? It’s the island’s only floating bed & breakfast….
• Steve & JoAnn from the SJUU Fellowship asked if I’d let you know more about the meetings – you bet! The meetings are uplifting & informative (I like going, when I can)…here’s what’s on tap for the fall:

The Fellowship is guided, in part, by principles of the inherent worth of all people: justice, equity and compassion in human relations. We encourage spiritual growth from the wisdom of all the world’s religions, humanistic teachings as well as teachings of earth centered traditions.
Please join us at the Mullis Senior Center at 10am followed by social hour on the second, third and forth Sunday of each month.
