LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Edible book festival saw solid growth
The South Whidbey Parks and Aquatics Foundation sincerely thanks all who participated, attended, or sponsored the second annual South Whidbey Edible Book Festival.
The festival saw substantial growth: entries grew by 35 percent and attendance was 50 percent greater than the first year. Next year, the public can expect to see new categories in the competition.
We would like to give extra thanks to the generous sponsors: Book Lovers Book Exchange, Casey’s Crafts, Linds, Moonraker Books, Mukilteo Coffee, Neil’s Clover Patch, Prima Bistro, The Roaming Radish, Useless Bay Coffee Company, Village Pizzeria and Wander on Whidbey.
All funds raised by the event went to the South Whidbey Parks and Aquatics Foundation, whose mission is to make parks and aquatics activities accessible to all residents of the South Whidbey community. They will be donating the net profits to the Rotary Basketball Court.
The Rotary Club of South Whidbey hopes to install a full-sized, outdoor basketball court at the Community Park this year in partnership with the South Whidbey Park and Recreation District. Aiding the rotary with this project is an example of how the South Whidbey Parks and Aquatics Foundation improves the quality of life for all South Whidbey residents by ensuring fitness opportunities for all.
Both the South Whidbey Edible Book Festival and the South Whidbey Parks and Aquatics Foundation look forward to seeing you at the third annual South Whidbey Edible Book Festival next year!
