  • The Fire­fight­ers Asso­ci­a­tion is host­ing its annu­al East­er event this Sun­day from noon to 2 p.m. The East­er Bun­ny will be in atten­dance, and there’s a stamp col­lect­ing chal­lenge (with prizes) for kids that you can learn more about on the Fire Depart­men­t’s web­site.
  • After a snow-out on Tues­day, the high school base­ball and fast­pitch teams returned to the dia­mond on Wednes­day with home games against Orcas Island. Base­ball won 10–0 to improve to 9–1 on the sea­son. Fast­pitch won 17–7 to move to 5–3.
  • The Amer­i­can Legion is host­ing the 12th annu­al Bob­by Boyce Memo­r­i­al Schol­ar­ship fundrais­er this Sat­ur­day at 5 p.m. There will be bar­be­cued salmon and ribs to eat, fol­lowed by a raf­fle. They ask that you bring a dessert to share. Guests and mem­bers are both wel­come — tick­ets are $30, and you can either buy them in per­son or by call­ing 360–378-5705.
  • The San Juan Preser­va­tion Trust’s blue­bird blitz — where vol­un­teers count as many West­ern Blue­birds as they can in a two-hour peri­od — takes place from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. on Fri­day. Reg­is­ter now, then meet at Red Mill Farm on Fri­day, and be sure to bring your binoculars.
  • Miles Crossen and Thomas Ashcroft are look­ing for vol­un­teers to help with the pho­tog­ra­phy exhi­bi­tion at this year’s Coun­ty Fair. They need judges, peo­ple to receive and hang pho­tos, and peo­ple to staff the booth for two- to four-hour shifts dur­ing the Fair. Email if you’re interested.
  • There’s only a week and a half left for high school seniors to apply for the San Juan Preser­va­tion Trust’s Cli­mate Lead­er­ship Schol­ar­ships. This year SJPT will award two $4,000 schol­ar­ships to two grad­u­at­ing high school seniors from the San Juan Islands — $2,000 per year for each recipient’s first two years of high­er edu­ca­tion.
