Wow!  What a great start to GiveOrcas!  We have raised over $136,000 in the first 4 days — 36% of the total requests.  Three proposals are fully funded — Kwiaht, Salmonberry School, and Fresh Bucks through OCRC.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. Hopefully this momentum will carry through to the end!

The campaign runs through the 16th.  Next Tuesday is Unique Donor Day, where the organization with the most individual donors that day will win a bonus of $1000. Head to GiveOrcas to see how we are doing as the week rolls on.

I volunteered at the County Booster Clinic this week.  It was great to see so many of you in person!  We are now the most vaccinated County in Washington State.  Unfortunately, we have also seen a significant uptick of COVID infections locally.  San Juan County is now in the top 10 counties in the state for rate of infection.  Not good.  Keep your masks handy!

Tomorrow is the first Farmers Market of the season, a sure sign of Spring (even though the weather says otherwise).  Hoping the sun makes an appearance and the weekend is slightly less damp!

Stay well —
