LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Grateful for dining support of schools

Editor,

I write on behalf of the South Whidbey Schools Foundation. We want to express our gratitude for all who participated in “Dine Out Wednesdays for South Whidbey Schools.” The program was launched in February and runs through March. Details can be found at SWSFoundation.org

The Dine Out program generated over $1,000 for schools in February alone. It also generated a noticeable increase in Wednesday diners at participating restaurants, which include Gordon’s on Blueberry Hill, Hong Kong Gardens, Café Langley, Freeland Café, Patron Mexican Restaurant, Mo’s Pub & Eatery and Mukilteo Coffee Roasters Café in the Woods.

Thanks to all who chose to dine out on Wednesday at these establishments, and a special thanks to the participating restaurants. They deserve special recognition for being willing to take a risk and engage in this new program to help the schools. Their willingness to participate and the public’s willingness to engage in the program created a win win for both. Thank you all.

Sincerely,

CHRIS GIBSON,

Board president, SWSF
