Letter: Coupeville Lions Club had successful dinner, auction

Editor,

On the evening of Feb. 23, the Coupeville Lions Club held another successful scholarship dinner and auction for Coupeville High School seniors.

We recently completed the final tally of contributions and expenses and are pleased to announce that over $30,000 was raised.

This success relies on a huge contribution in volunteer hours by Coupeville Lions and many others. Individuals and businesses were generous with donations.

A sold-out crowd filled the Oak Harbor Elks Club. We long ago outgrew any Coupeville venue. Purses and wallets were wide open.

At our small high school, these “dollars for scholars” make a huge impact. Each dollar raised will be given to students of the class of 2019.

Yearly, our club is pleased to present over 20 scholarships. We wish to thank the generosity of our community members who place high value on education for our youth.

Doug Kroon, President

Coupeville Lions Club
