San Juan Island is such a won­der­ful, gen­er­ous com­mu­ni­ty. A need aris­es and most peo­ple step up to help fel­low Islanders.

On Christ­mas Eve 2020, Yvonne Bow­man sud­den­ly lost her beloved hus­band Gary. This tremen­dous loss also caused a huge finan­cial bur­den for her. And so a fundrais­er was born.

Posters appeared in Fri­day Har­bor busi­ness­es, a Ben­e­fit for Yvonne web­site was cre­at­ed and adver­tis­ing was donat­ed to pro­mote the Gary Bow­man Memo­r­i­al Fund at Ban­ner Bank.

The goal was to raise at least $25,000. Well, fel­low Islanders, we achieved our goal! The account will still be open but we are con­clud­ing advertising.

Yvonne is very, very grate­ful and sends a huge, heart­felt appre­ci­a­tion to every­one who contributed.

We are all so blessed to live here and to be a part of this tru­ly spe­cial San Juan Island community.
