Whidbey Island Nourishes’ annual Summer Frolic was a huge success.
It rained and then it rained some more, but then the clouds parted and the sun came out just in time for Sock Hoppers to gather last Saturday, Aug. 11.
The Heggenes Valley Boys, with a surprise visit from Elvis, had the guests rockin’ and rollin’ to toe-tapping tunes. Upper Left Catering grilled a delicious feast with help from the Organic Farm School, Deep Harvest Farm and Seeds, and Foxtail Farm.
In true 1950s fashion, an ice cream sundae bar topped things off, made possible by Whidbey Island Ice Cream.
Thanks to Jim Freeman, whose joyful auctioneering encouraged folks to raise their paddles high, to our local vendors who provided goods and services for the auctions, to Don Wodjenski for capturing the fun on pics available soon on the WIN website, and to Randy Hudson and Georgia Gerber who shared their home with us once again.
WIN volunteers are gearing up for another school year of preparing and delivering nutritious meals to our South Whidbey youth. It is all made possible by our generous community. We invite you to contact us with questions, to volunteer, or to make a donation: www.whidbeyislandnourishes.org
