Smuggler Kelly: “King of the Smugglers”

Please join us on Monday, August 12th for Win Anderson's presentation on Guemes Island's own Smuggler Kelly. The program begins at 7pm at the church. Win will separate fact from fiction as he describes the life and times of Lawernce Kelly, “King of the Smugglers.” This well documented account details Kelly's story from his participation in America's civil war, life on Guemes Island and his notorious adventures as a rouge of the Salish sea.

Our regularly scheduled business meeting begins at 5:45 pm. All are welcome to attend. This month's meeting will focus on the remaining details required for our 6th annual Dog Island Dog Show. If you would like to volunteer to help with the island's favorite event on August 24th, please join us at the meeting, contact us by email: or telephone: Tom Deach 360-708-2582. Thanks to the entire community for your continued support.
