Wow! OPAL Community Land Trust is wasting no time getting April’s Grove built (see above photo). It is so rewarding to see these buildings going up so quickly. It feels like the fundraising just finished and here they are. What a gift for the many families and individuals who will call April’s Grove home. Thank you, OPAL! And Thank you to everyone who donated to make this possible. Truly life changing for so many.

Looking to the East from the bleachers shows how far along the Track and Field project is as well. The turf is in and the track surface will be installed shortly. What an amazing gift from Phyllis Henigson! There will be a celebration on November 16th to see the track and the new multi-purpose room. We will send out times as we get closer.

Fortunately, the weather has shifted and next week looks rainy and chilly–just in time for the Orcas Island Film Fest. You can see the line up by going here and clicking on the Buy Tickets link. Plenty of great films to choose from!

Wishing you a great weekend,
