As it often is, the generosity of our community was on full display this past weekend as the Island Institute hosted two big events. One was a retrospective, celebrating the work of recently retired Carolyn Servid and Dorik Mechau, looking back at the history of our organization. The second was an auction, a fundraiser to build the future of the Island Institute as we work to build on past programs to strengthen our community through story and conversation.
Writers Alice Crow and Ruby Murray will join us in Sitka for the month of April as our writers in residence. Check back in the next couple days for more information.
