New Ferry Survey
Guemes Ferry System Improvements Survey
The first survey helped us collect data about who uses the ferry, when and why; now, we want to do a deeper dive into those answers. We’re looking for more info about what reliability means to you, and how we could improve the sailing schedule and ticketing. - Skagit County Public Works

Upcoming Luminary Classes
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 the south shore of Guemes Island for the 1st Earth Day Luminary Parade. The 2nd Annual Luminary Parade will be on Saturday, April 21, 2018. The parade will be preceded by this year's series of classes in March and April - taught, once again, by luminary artist and Guemes resident, Loalynda Bird. Loalynda will introduce new lantern designs and welcome newcomers to the craft. Earth Day festivities will also include a community supper with a fundraiser supporting the Guemes Ferry Trail Project.

Warm Welcome To New Neighbors
Groundfloor Guemes would like to extend a warm welcome to new island neighbors on behalf of the entire community! We're a community outreach group within the Guemes Island Community Center Association (GICCA). We strive to support environmental and economic sustainability within our community while supporting island non-profit groups and projects.
We have prepared a small tote (welcome bag) with information to help new islanders become acquainted with our community. If you're a new island resident, or you know someone who is, please CONTACT US to receive (or give) a welcoming tote (and a big smile).
Quite Interesting: All the batteries on Earth store just ten minutes of the world’s electricity needs.
