Posted April 19, 2022 at 6:00 am by

  • 13 Ravens Cof­fee & Books, a cof­fee house locat­ed in a retired train car in Seward, Alas­ka, held a fundrais­er for the Island busi­ness­es affect­ed by last week’s fire. Their efforts raised $1,000 for the EDC’s fire recov­ery fund. Lib­er­ty Miller, the own­er of 13 Ravens, pre­vi­ous­ly lived in Fri­day Harbor.
  • Crows Nest will have a tem­po­rary new home with­in the next few weeks. They’ll be locat­ed in the nar­row­est retail space in Fri­day Har­bor, sand­wiched between Be Chic Bou­tique and the Spring Street Gen­er­al Store. The shop had been occu­pied by the Tight Squeeze juice shop.
  • There are only a few days left to sign up for the Fri­day Har­bor Car Show, which is being held on Sat­ur­day from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Fair­grounds. The car show is the com­mu­ni­ty project of high school junior Cody Balcomb-Bartok.
  • Twen­ty-six peo­ple from through­out the islands have become interns with the Mas­ter Gar­den­er Foun­da­tion of San Juan Coun­ty. Interns com­plete more than 60 hours of edu­ca­tion in areas like veg­etable and fruit grow­ing, botany, native and orna­men­tal plant iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, and ento­mol­o­gy. With the help of Mas­ter Gar­den­er men­tors, they’ll work with­in the com­mu­ni­ty to iden­ti­fy plant and insect prob­lems, answer gar­den­ing and hor­ti­cul­ture ques­tions, and teach chil­dren and adults in edu­ca­tion­al gardens.
  • Beer from San Juan Island Brew­ing Co. is now avail­able at Lakedale Resort’s gen­er­al store.
  • Climb San Juan is offer­ing 10 free shoe rentals if you sign up for a mem­ber­ship in April.
