Summer FunFest was a hit!

The South Whidbey Commons’ first Summer FunFest was a smashing success thanks to perfect weather, enthusiastic attendees, fun activities, and delicious food. Members of the community enjoyed painting mugs and bowls for later use in the Coffeehouse Bookstore, blowing bubbles, creating chalk art on the sidewalk, playing with Legos®, collaborating on interactive community poetry, creating “There’s no place like South Whidbey” masterpieces, and dressing up for photos. Photographers took pictures for the “Capture the Face of South Whidbey photo contest, artists captured it all in watercolors, and people of all ages enjoyed (and hula hooped to) the live music of Trio Nouveau, Sommar Trio, and Eli Moore, as well as poetry by Martin Marriott.

Heartfelt thanks to Tree-Top Bakers for the delicious cake they donated, board member Ted Brookes and his daughter Lisabeth Miller for the yummy donated Hotdogs on a Stick and lemonade. Many thanks, too, to the board, staff, and volunteers, including Dell Wolfensparger, Sean Morphew, Austin Free, Meaghan De Wolf, Robin Barre, Amanda Potter, Couran Therien, Amanda Gonzales, Keppi Ross, Amelia Weeks, Gail Riek, and Chris Turpen–none of it would have been possible without their efforts.
