Restrooms Out At Anacortes Terminal
"At this time, there is a broken water line at the Anacortes dock that requires repair. Yesterday, crews were able to apply a temporary patch to the line so that the water could be turned back on. As of today, the restrooms are operational in the terminal building. For now, we ask that you use the water from the sinks for hand washing only. We do not have drinking water currently available. Over the next couple of weeks, crews will be working to come up with a permanent repair plan. There may be times when the water will be shut off; please watch for signs letting you know when the restrooms can and cannot be used. Portable restrooms have been placed on the dock in case you need them." [8:30 am, 7.19.16]
"Crews are currently working to repair a broken water line at the Anacortes dock. Unfortunately, for the time being, we are without water and restrooms at the terminal. Portable restrooms are expected to arrive at the dock within the next few hours. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; and we thank you for your patience as we work to repair this issue as quickly as possible. There is also a portable restroom located in the Guemes Island parking lot if you should need one." - Captain Rachel Rowe [1:30 pm, 7.18.16]
Schoolhouse Stage Project
Nearly $50,000 has been raised and spent on construction materials and labor in addition to many hours of volunteer time. Most of the materials necessary for future construction have been purchased and are currently stored at the site. However, due to the complicated design, continued escalation of building cost and the expertise needed to build the stage, another $50,000 may be required in order to complete the project. The Community Center wants your input, suggestions and questions. Please plan to attend. [Read more]
