H.4RSTINE ISLAND NEWS :ic WwOW, what a Fourth of July we had. The eather was beau- fitful, kids, grandkids and friends were in and out the door all day, and the food seemed never-end- ing. Then there were the fireworks -- I can't imagine how many thousands of dollars lit up the sky. Our fam- ily added a little, but a couple of the neigh- bors seemed to have bought out a whole fire- works stand. We were happy. The Harstine Island Com- munity Club will have its monthly meeting on Fri- day. Social hour will begin at 6 p.m., with a potluck dinner starting at 6:30 p.m. Those attending should bring place settings and a dish that will serve between six and eight folks. They wouldn't want the hosts and hostesses who eat last to go hungry. There will be a presentation regarding the history of the garden club led by Pat Le Clair, owner of Arts and Flowers Nursery and Gift Shop on the island. Don't miss this time to celebrate the hall's 100th anniversary and to be with wonderful neighbors. July 19 is the day for the sixth annual Golf Classic benefit- ting Turning Pointe Domestic Violence Services. It really needs players. Cost is $100 a person to play and you get your green fees, cart, By MIKE breakfast goodies, CALLAGHAN lunch and a chance to win lots of prizes. Your $100 goes toward keep- ing the shelter open to women in need. It has about 50 beds in the shelter and those beds are almost always full. So find your way to the Lake Limerick Golf Course for some fun and a chance to contribute to an important organization. Call Judy Callaghan at 427-9516 for more information. On July 23, the senior lunch group will be cooking taco lasagna with green salad and bar cookies. They serve at noon, but recommend you get there early as they usu- ally have about 100 people for lunch. All who are ages 50 and older, along with their guests, are welcome. A $3 donation for this fabulous lunch would be nice. The Centennial Celebra- tion is in full swing. Up next on your calendar of events is the Art & Much More Auc- tion from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on July 25. You can purchase your tickets in advance, which will allow you to avoid the longer line at the registra- tion table. Tickets are $10 per person, which includes two complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Tickets are available at Saturday farmers markets and other island func- tions. They can also be pur- chased before the auction. At the same time, don't forget to get your raffle tickets for the one-of-a-kind Centen- nial Turn Dash Quilt, made with loving hands by the is- land's women quilters. Both the silent and live auctions have a variety of items in all price ranges to bid on. There is something for everyone. Come and enjoy finding your trea- sures in our 100-year-old com- munity hall. Just think of the bragging rights youll have. Next week in my column I will feature some of the auc- tion items available. The auc- tion is presented by the Harst- ine Island Community Club, with proceeds going toward the continued upkeep of our historic hall and its grounds during the next 100 years. It's almost time for the an- nual Harstine Island rummage sale from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Aug. 2. As always, you are needed. The rummage sale is a big fundraiser for the commu- nity club. To make it a success, you need to donate wonder- ful items. So, right now, go through your storage area, garage, attic and closet, and weed out the stuff you have not used in the past couple of years. Usually, the Wednes- day before the event you can begin hauling that great and wonderful stuff over to the hall where they will sort, price and put it on display. The farmers market during the weekend was at its maxi- mum capacity. The vendor slots were full and as usual, the holiday brought out the crowds. This week I only have room for one vendor -- Bill Shoaf. Bill lives south of the bridge on Pickering Road. He has been selling at the mar- ket for five years. If you need any information about hon- eybees, Bill is your guy. He sells his honey from his own hives, plus some of his arts and crafts. Those arts and crafts are there to supports his bee habit. Bill thinks local food production will be increas- ingly important to Mason County. Honeybees are neces- sary for pollination. They are threatened by pesticides and other factors. Someone has to keep bees and that is Bill's mission. I know several people who Bill has helped get their hives started. I hope to be on his list next year. v
