For the 30th year in a row, a salmon dinner will be served on South Whidbey to help people in Central America.
On Friday, Nov. 22, Langley United Methodist Church will offer its benefit salmon dinner to the community.
Originally established by Dave and Karen Anderson in 1989, the purpose of the event is to support grassroots organizations in Central America in which local Whidbey people are directly involved.
This year’s recipients include the School of the Streets in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, where a group of South Whidbey volunteers established a library in 2012. Proceeds from the dinner fund the Mayan librarian, and handicraft sales help pay for new books and games.
The benefit also supports adult learners and cooperative farmers in Haiti, through the Foundation for International Development Assistance.
The community dinner includes sustainably harvested salmon, baked potatoes donated by Charmer’s Bistro, coleslaw, garlic bread and lots of homemade desserts. A large group of volunteers headed by Pat McDaniels prepare the meal.
The Spanish Club of South Whidbey High will serve the meal 5-7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the church, located upstairs at Third and Anthes streets.
• The cost is $14 for adults and $6 for youth under 12. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
