Friday Creek Habitat Stewards is a group of community members pledged to increase watershed awareness by enhancing wildlife habitat in the Upper Samish Watershed one home at a time. Volunteers are always needed for special projects, like the Alger Community Hall's new native plant demonstration garden. If interested visit their website at www.fridaycreekhabitatstewards.weebly.com.
Community halls are an important resource in small areas around the county. They serve as a place for celebrations, public meetings, where community members can meet each other socially, community members can rent cheaply when a private family function or party is too big for their own home, that passes on and retells local history, and where politicians or other official leaders come to meet the citizens and ask for their opinions. To achieve more from your community hall volunteers are needed. Contact Alger Improvement Club 360-724-0340 and/or Blanchard Community Club 360-766-5272
