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.
