This week, the high school LEOs Club pre­sent­ed San Juan Schools Foun­da­tion with a $500 check towards the school arts pro­gram. The LEOs Club of San Juan Island works all year to earn mon­ey to give to wor­thy com­mu­ni­ty caus­es. They also donate time to com­mu­ni­ty projects like build­ing the Island Rec Play­ground at Carter Ball Fields, The FANS Car­ni­val, and the Com­mu­ni­ty Thanks­giv­ing din­ner, just to name a few.

The LEOs Club’s next event is the San­ta Ship event, this year on Decem­ber 17. San­ta arrives at the Port while fam­i­lies enjoy free cof­fee, cook­ies and cocoa, and a cho­rus of car­ol­ing. San­ta is whisked up to the mid­dle school com­mons, where LEOs Club mem­bers give every child a toy, a can­dy cane, and a piece of fruit. San­ta then meets with each child and lis­tens to their wishes. 

LEOs Club co-advis­er John Bostrom faith­ful­ly heads up this project each year.  The toys for this event are pur­chased with LEOS Club funds and the SJI Lions Clubs pays for the mid­dle school rental, can­dy canes, and the fruit for each gift bag. 

You can support the San Juan Update by doing business with our loyal advertisers, and by making a one-time contribution or a recurring donation.
