Harstine Island Community Club

HICC December Meeting

June 10, 2016

The Harstine Island Community Club promotes educational, cultural, and social opportunities for our community, our off-island neighbors and for all the new friends we have yet to meet. The Club actively manages and preserves the Community Hall, respecting the storied history of the Hall and the Island while looking forward to the future.

We hold monthly meetings on the second Friday of the month at the Community Hall with a no-host social hour starting at 6 pm, followed by a pot luck dinner at 6:30, a brief meeting at 7 pm, which is generally followed by a short program.

Membership is open to any Island resident or property owner. Please feel free to contact us for further information or questions.

Important Events:

May 25, 2016 Senior Lunch (only one in May)

Do you have 1 hour a week to spend at the beach?  

These seabirds are fun to watch!

Pigeon Guillemots are one of the only seabirds that breed in the South Puget Sound. They are considered to be an “indicator species” of the Salish Sea because their health is directly tied to the health of the marine environment as a whole. It is important that we gather baseline information about their population in order to assess whether their numbers grow or decline in coming years.  

2016 Volunteer Training Date:  June 1st, 2016, 6-8 pm,
