Much needed grant award | Letter

Gathering of Island Voices and Expressions, better known as KLOI-LP, 102.9 FM, Lopez Island’s Community Radio station, would like to publicly thank United Way of San Juan County for the grant awarded to them this year. Their support makes it possible for us to continue in our mission of creating a venue for island voices and providing quality news and entertainment for island residents and beyond via our Internet streaming.

This award allowed us to use funds to pay operating expenses so that donated funds normally used for these could be used to upgrade our station lighting and to sponsor Lopez Elementary School Readers Theatre presentations as well as concerts by local musicians, such as Gretchen Wing and Friends.

We appreciate those who have donated to the United Way and want them to know that their contribution is helping to fund this local, all volunteer, organization on Lopez Island.

The GIVE Board of Directors: Kathy Booth, Carol Steckler, Jack Tate, Beth Geever, Matt Rabel, and  Bill Evans (retired)
