Letter: Hall gets boost from Goosefoot grant match


On behalf of the Bayview Community Hall Board of Directors, we would like to extend an exuberant thank you to The Goosefoot Community Fund.

Goosefoot recently provided a $25,000 matching grant for much-needed renovations at Bayview Community Hall.

We are inspired by their mission and how they fulfill it in our community every day. Goosefoot contributes to many worthy causes on the South End, making our community a better place to live.

All of us are grateful not only for their support, but also the hundreds of community members who donated to the “Paint The Hall” fund.

Over the last 18 months, our friends and neighbors have come together to raise more than $60,000, through online donations, dance fundraisers, etc., allowing us to proceed with needed repairs, abatement and painting.

Additionally, local businesses have contributed needed supplies, paint and equipment.

We would like to acknowledge and give a big thank you to Sebo’s, Ace Hardware, Hanson’s Building Supply, Diamond Rentals and Benjamin Moore.

Your donations will go a long way toward renovating our Community Hall. We appreciate your generosity.

Bayview Hall is owned by its members for a $10 per year membership, and currently we have about 140 members.

Each of us would like to extend our appreciation to the South Whidbey community for your support.

We hope to be around for another 90 years.

Thank you.

The Bayview Community Hall Board

Carie Elder, Brian Grimm, Justin Voss and Sharon Warwick
