Local activist & all-around great person Emily Bayuk-Johnson is heading for a four-minth stint in Peru to help build a community center. The folks who live in San Francisco de Asis need a place for child care, education and skills-development training, so the Lake Union Crew Outreach Foundation (Emily rows for ’em, too) is extending a hand in the $150K project.

Here’s the full story, from the Seattle Times.

Emily, San Juan Island is proud of you!

  2. Sweet! Thanx Ian. We’re really getting close to departure here in Seattle. The shipping container packed with steel and baby cloths has arrived down south and is waiting to be unloaded. I’ll try and send some updates on the project as it progresses. If anyone wants more info about the project or rowing deals, tell them to contact me. It looks like Lake Union Crew will be traveling to new communities annually if people want to jump on board.
