If you are an old-timer on the Island or just looking for an opportunity to meet your
neighbors, please consider becoming a volunteer. If you’d like to initiate a new Holiday
Event, Island-Wide Swap Meet, Clean-Up Day, or any other community event, please
call the Island Manager at 265-1818 for more information or email a Trustee or Committee Chair.

This group will be facilitated by Pierce County Emergency Management Services. In the

and emergency protocols that could be life-saving in case of an emergency.
Please contact the Island Manager at 265-1818 for more information.

group reports to the Board and is always looking for volunteers to help with minor repairs
and the management of annual inspections and maintenance. Go to the BRIDGE page
