Thank you to everyone who sent in Flat Person guesses. 49 people guessed correctly- the 2023 Flat Ambassador is Berto Gandara! John Ehrmantraut won the hat draw and selected the Orcas Community Resource proposal to receive the $500 prize. Fantastic!

Flat Berto is off to Dodge Ball tonight and is scheduled for other events over the next 10 days. If you see him, snap a selfie with him and post it with #giveorcas. We will have another hat draw at the end of the campaign and someone will win another $500 for the proposal of their choice.

The Give Orcas games kick off on Monday with Ben Franklin Day. The proposal that garners the most $100 donations that day will win a bonus of $1000, with 2nd place winning $500 and third $250. It will be a horse race for sure!  You can go here to participate in the campaign and make your donation: – There are many wonderful programs featured that all make the island a better place to live.

I hope you have had a lovely launch of the Holiday season. It could not be more beautiful. Our crew hiked out to Point Lawrence and were treated to whales feeding in the current.  We do live in an amazing place!
