Thanks from FANS
A nineteen foot fire truck slide, a spectacular cake walk, fabulous face painting, 20 game booths and hundreds of island kids filled the fairgrounds last Saturday, for FANS 4th annual Carnival. The $3,500 raised will help support a variety of Island Rec programs and events. Thanks to so many of you who brought your children out to enjoy a day of carnival craziness and help us raise these funds.
A very special thank you goes out to a long list of volunteers, over 70, who make the carnival happen. Many local organizations join us in our effort, the Kiwanis, the Soroptimists and the Leos, as well as dozens of students from Spring Street, the middle school and high school. Too many adult volunteers to list gave their time and energy that day to work booths, sell tickets, make snocones, tell fortunes and such. The hours you gave that day made a big difference to FANS, Island Rec and to so many of our local kids. Thanks to each of you.
We also couldn’t pull this off without our generous local sponsors, Roche Harbor Resort, Friday Harbor Drug, The Tooth Fairy, Brandli Law, Nate’s Automotive, IPS and David Waldron/Architect. Your support is invaluable to the success of the carnival, along with Kris at Printonyx, Angela Sutherland, Rachel Otis, Andy Urbach, Diane Ball, the Community Theatre’s Costume Shop, all the amazing cake bakers… the list goes on and on. We are so grateful to each and every one of you.
To those of you who attended, thanks again for coming. For those who missed it, we hope to see you next year for another day of games, food, and carnival fun all to support our wonderful parks and rec department, Island Rec.
