Welcome to week #5


With Week 4 done we are at the halfway point of summer programming. That means the annual Juniper Island Regatta is next Monday, August 5th!

The regatta is entirely supported by donations and the sale of booster ribbons for the event. Donations are still being taken for this year’s event.

Below is the info for the many events and activities coming up.

Read on for what’s happening in Week Five.
