FUN Stories
 
Fidalgo Island Rotary got ho-ho-holly this past weekend with Celebrate the Season, bringing a little bit of the North Pole to Anacortes! Each year, the FUN Club teams up with the Anacortes Schools Foundation to bring the festive event to our little seaside town. We start the day with a parade down the main street, culminating in an all-day family festival at the Port Building. This year, we added the Gingerbread Building Contest on Sunday, Dec. 8. Click to view more photos, videos and the highly-anticipated results of the Gingerbread Building Contest! 
 
When Tricia and Mike decided to drive cross-country back to Georgia they had a few different options. Have everything shipped with movers (estimate: $6000). Sell everything and fly first class (estimate: $1500). Rent a trailer and move themselves (estimate: $1000).  They had no idea going with the ladder would create the SCARIEST drive of their lives...
 

In twelve school graduation ceremonies this month, Thirty-one of the flag bearers were recipients of scholarships from San Lucas Toliman Scholars.  The FIRC International Committee and FIRC members sponsor 14 SLT scholars, and members of the Anacortes community sponsor others.

 
When FIR members Madelyn and Phil Case go down to Honduras to check on projects, deliver backpacks or assess school supplies, it takes its toll on the body. Phil (pictured here at the San Pedro de Sula airport) basically said "I'm done. I must take a nap. Somewhere. Anywhere." since their flights were delayed. There was so much to see and do while in Honduras, finally the couple got home to Anacortes around 2:30 am. "Surprise Surprise! No one was on the roads that early." Madelyn joked.
 
When Val and Dave Sem head south to Phoenix Arizona on holiday, they check out the local Saguaro cactus growing in the Sonoran Desert Preserve near their house. The warm weather, and dry temperatures motivate them to go hiking and start a vigorous workout regimen in the 100 degree weather. Dave personally, doesn't like his picture taken and usually avoids cameras, but for this one time- he gave us just a peak of his weight loss body...
