Great Space!

Had an opportunity to stop by the Island Community House on Mumford Street.  It is a really great space available for the community to use.  I’m looking forward to scheduling volunteer meetings there – Stay tuned for upcoming dates!  Thanks Jenny Hanyo and David Landsberger for the tour!

Drop In Art Class

A rainy day brought in a crowd for Drop In Art… one of the missions of the Island Community House is to bring people together for social gatherings and it’s so nice to get to do that!
