A great big “thank you” to South Whidbey Community businesses for their support and donations for our recent picnic raffle.
On July 24, we celebrated and thanked the many members and volunteers who make our remarkable organization work. South Whidbey at Home had just passed its five-year anniversary.
From an idea about how to address a need, to a group of supporters that became an organization with members and volunteers, much has happened in the first five years.
We learned that when we come together to care for one another, wonderful things happen.
A huge shout out to all the South Whidbey at Home volunteers, members, supporters and friends for stepping up to help during this past year.
Many hands planned the picnic and supported the special celebration of hanging in with us during COVID and coming out of hibernation.
South Whidbey at Home was fortunate throughout, and the resounding picnic turnout just showed what a great “village” the South Whidbey community is.
We had an amazing number of raffle prizes to give out to our attendees thanks to the following businesses:
Bayview Farm & Garden
Flowers By the Sea
Gordon’s Food Truck
Holmes Harbor Cellars
In the Country
Mukilteo Coffee Roasters
Music for the Eyes
Mutiny Bay Blues
Penn Cove Brewery
The Big W
Wild Birds Unlimited
Most of us chose to live on South Whidbey and are daily grateful to live in such a community full of selfless folks – each one of you has been a blessing throughout this COVID journey. “Thank you” will never be enough.
To the larger community, we invite you to be part of a fun, engaging group that helps South Whidbey seniors stay at home – safely. There are lots of ways to be part of our fun.
