Community Events, January 2015
When I checked a map of the weather monitoring stations throughout the island via www.wunderground.com this New Year’s morning, I saw numbers ranging from below freezing to 46 degrees. We’ve been having results like this for quite a while. Remember the recent snow storm that missed Oak Harbor and Coupeville and dumped four inches on the south end?
The cold-blooded murder of 12 people at French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo is a reminder that freedom sometimes comes with a high price.
Few of us bother to sing the third verse of “Deck the Halls” at Christmastime, but it’s a sweet celebration of the new year’s approach: “Fast away the old year passes / Hail the new, ye lads and lasses / Sing we joyous all together / Heedless of the wind and weather!” So, ye Whidbey lads and lasses, herewith I sing carols about some fond year-end memories here on the Rock, heedless of our wind and weather.
A number of years ago, a few people with vision realized the need for a Boys & Girls Club in Coupeville. Spurred to action by Margie Parker and Sue Roundy, the pair realized that the Central Whidbey Youth Coalition’s Saturday night get-together in the gym proved the need.
