Pies for the Holiday
Morgan Timmons and Isabella Brown are juniors at Friday Harbor High School. For their Community Projects class they are raising awareness about the issues with keeping Orca Whales in captivity.
They have created a children’s book that features Ollie The Orca. This 6 year old Orca is trapped in a bay off the coast off of San Juan Island and is taken into captivity. The book shows the struggles he goes through in a marine park in California. Eventually a group of ambitious first graders raise enough awareness to help set him free.
They will be printing the book as a coloring book and sharing it with the kids at FHES. They will use the money they raise for printing the book and any other funds raised will be donated to a local whale research organization.
Morgan and Isabella are selling pumpkin pies just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. They will be raising money to support their project. Call (360) 298-4625 or email noorcasincaptivity [@] gmail.com to pre-order your pie (please include a name, amount of pies, and a contact number).
Pies will be available for purchase and pick-up between 12:00pm and 4:00pm on Wednesday, November 25th outside ACE Hardware. Please pre-order before Sunday to ensure we make a pie just for you. We will have some pies for sale on Wednesday as well as some other baked goods so come early for best selection. We will also be selling “no orcas/dolphins in captivity” wristbands. Pick one up and help spread awareness!! (they also make great stocking stuffers!)
