Island Cleaners to the rescue

I just wanted to put in a plug for Island Cleaners (1080 SE Pioneer Way, Oak Harbor). Yesterday, I helped my wife, Rae, pick up a full van load of 250-plus donated jackets for the needy; a rather immense project that she has been working on for the last month with the Oak Harbor High School freshmen. Impressed as I was by my wife’s many extra hours of hard work, I was truly astounded by the work that Island Cleaners had put in to project. Island Cleaners had laundered two-thirds of the donated coats, for free, in just one day, with only the owner (Christine Westman) and her daughter at the helm.

It was an amazing effort and one that I thought deserved recognition. So if you have a favorite retro, wool, Campangnolo jersey that is just too good for the home washer, Island Cleaners deserves your business.
