Port funds $6K of South End grants

The Port District board of commissioners approved a resolution to award three South Whidbey organizations funding grants during their regular meeting Tuesday, Sept. 10.

The Whidbey Island Arts Council, Clinton Progressive Association and Island Shakespeare Festival had representatives present data to the board on how each organization benefits the South Whidbey area. The grants totaled $6,270.

Curt Gordon, port commissioner, said the three groups are all great programs for the community. The intention of the grant is to drive economic development in the South Whidbey area.

The next regular meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 8.
