This goes until June 15th or when ever the full $5 millon has been reached.

Just a reminder don’t forget about SWEPTA’s Family Fun Bingo Night TONIGHT, Friday 3/27 at 6:30pm. This is one of the communities favorite family fun nights and it is also a FUNdraiser for SWEPTA. There will be a small bake sale and lots of great prizes to choose from! We will be in the gym at the elementary school, this is an all ages family event. Unfortunately there is no childcare provided, and this is not a drop off even so all children must be with an adult. Thank you for understanding 😉
Also don’t forget about the Family Movie Night TONIGHT.
We are officially looking for local area vendors for this years event on 12/13! Booths are $15 for 10′ x 4′ and $25 for 10′ x 10′, no additional fees, but vendors must provide their own tables/display. We are looking to crafters and artisans from Whidbey Island and the north Seattle area who sell locally made and hand crafted items. Unfortunately we are not taking commercial product booths, including but not limited to, direct sales like Mary Kay, Scentsy, Avon etc. This event is a fundraiser for SWEPTA. All booth fees and other donations from this event will go towards supporting our programs for the school like Art Docents, Teacher Grants, Field Trips, Free Family Fun Nights and more.
The goal of this event is to provide a place for local vendors to sell their handcrafted goods, as well as for community members to be able to shop locally putting their dollars right back into our community. We will also be having a family friendly winter festival to provide free and warm activities and a Whidbey winter weekend ;).
If you are interested in participating as a vendor or would simply like to volunteer for the event please contact the event coordinator Kymy for more information. Vendor applications will be accepted until 11/30 or until spaces are filled.
