Last Sunday, May 19th, the FHHS LEO Club held it’s 12th Annual Golf Scramble at the San Juan Golf and Tennis Club.  This yearly fundraiser is supported by the San Juan Golf & Tennis Club, local golfers, local merchants, and the San Juan Lions Club. 

The weather cooperated and the day spent playing golf culminated in a BBQ dinner, sponsored and staffed by the San Juan Island Lions Club.  Next year’s LEO Club officers were installed and outgoing officers were honored.  As well, the LEO Club gave end-of-the-year gifts to deserving non-profits, community projects, and fulfilled a classroom funding request.

This past year, LEO Club gave $400 to the FHHS Aerospace Team for 2018 travel expenses, $500 to Island Stage Left for their summer Shakespeare production, four 100’ hoses to Island Haven Sanctuary to replace hoses that froze in last year’s winter blast, $400 to Mr. Sawyer’s History & Aerospace class to fund a field trip to the Museum of Flight, and another $600 to fund the Aerospace Team for their 2019 travel to the July competition in Florida. 

Since 2007, the LEO Club has been giving back to the community with numerous volunteer hours and through funding community requests.  The student-lead club is always looking for new members, grades 9-12.
