The news was devastating … Early on the morning of Wednesday, March 27th, a massive landslide just outside Coupeville destroyed Driftwood Way, the only access road to 17 homes in the Ledgewood neighborhood. At least one home was left uninhabitable.
Our hearts sank. When bad things happen to our friends and neighbors, we all feel it.
But within a week, the wonderful people of Whidbey have pulled together to make certain that those in need get the things they need. And once again we are reminded of how truly amazing this island – this community of ours – is.
Please join us this Saturday, April 6th, in supporting the slide victims, who truly need our help to get back on their feet. This is going to be a fabulous event … we hope to see you there!
