Two race car drivers sped through one of the most picturesque parts of Ebey’s Landing in a flash. Justin Bell and Townsend Bell (no relation) spent a quiet Wednesday afternoon last week racing a Lexus IS 350 FSPORT. They raced down Ebey Road, drifted through a hair-pin turn onto Hill Road near the bluff trail, regained speed as they whizzed by the beach before negotiating a series of curves on the narrow road in the woods before speeding past a historic, red barn located just outside the treeline. As for who won? Tune in to “Shut up and Drive” to find out. The show featuring Ebey’s Landing airs at noon, Sunday, Sept. 29. on Fox Sports 1.

There are many reasons we are lucky to live in this beautiful spot on the planet but one that sometimes goes unnoticed are the many hardworking, nonprofit groups that go about fulfilling their missions, quietly and with little fanfare. These groups provide a variety of services that we all benefit from at some time or another. Their missions are diverse and important. They protect our children, elderly, animals and environment. They support our schools, the arts and health care. They provide lifetime learning on a multitude of subjects, complete historic preservation and are responsible for the many unique events in our community. They feed our hungry, protect the abused, provide healthy and safe activities for our youth and keep our town beautiful. All of these nonprofits get their work done with volunteers, giving of their time and talents, to support the people and things that are important to them.
