NEW Update on Ferry Committee Election
The first ballot mailing on March 1 (white ballots) was apparently lost in the mail. New election ballots (now green) were mailed on March 15. These green ballots should arrive in island mailboxes in the next few days. Only green ballots will be valid and accepted for the election. If you received a white ballot and voted already, you must vote again on your new green ballot. Ballots must be postmarked by March 30 or deposited in the ballot box in the Guemes Library by March 30 during library hours Mon & Wed, 2 to 4 & 6 to 8; Fri & Sat, 2 to 4. Read more

Luminary Tradition Continues
In 2017 Guemes Islanders, friends, and family came together to learn the craft of creating lighted paper and reed luminary lanterns. The varied creations lit up South Shore for the 1st and 2nd Guemes Earth Day Luminary Parades - and the tradition continues.
The 3rd annual Guemes Earth Day Luminary Parade is scheduled for Saturday, April 27 and, once again, it will be preceded by a series of luminary workshops taught by luminary artist and Guemes resident, Loalynda Bird, beginning in March.
