GIPOA Presents 2019 Citizen(s) of the Year Award
On June 8, 2019, the Guemes Island Property Owners Association (GIPOA) convened at the Community Hall for their Annual Meeting. The members chose from a slate of deserving nominees and awarded this year's Citizen(s) of the Year to Bill and Edie Clark.
The Clarks dedicate many volunteer hours to the Guemes community. Both have been valuable members of the Gathering Lunch team. Bill is the home maintenance volunteer for Guemes Connects. He also leads the weekly Guemes Drum Circle. Edie chairs the Groundfloor Guemes committee and is a Library volunteer. She also shares her sewing and quilting skills with area schools, introducing young people to the craft.
The Citizen of the Year honor includes a $50 award to the island organization of their choice. The Clarks are donating to the Guemes Island Ferry Trail. Congratulations Bill and Edie, and thank you!

"Single-use" was the Collins Dictionary word of the year in 2018, citing a 4-fold increase in usage. Single-use is most often associated with plastic, whose unchecked proliferation and reckless disposal are blamed for damaging the environment and affecting the food chain.
Shoppers in the United States use almost one single-use plastic bag per resident per day. Shoppers in Denmark use an average of four plastic bags a year. National Geographic
