Letter: More than $40,000 raised for Coupeville HS seniors


We at the Coupeville Lions Club want to thank the Coupeville community for making our 15th annual scholarship auction dinner such a huge success.

All of the funds we raised at the auction and from donations from those who were unable to attend will go toward scholarships for Coupeville high school seniors.

This year we raised more than $40,000.

For the high school seniors, one of the most important elements in being awarded a Coupeville Lions Scholarship is the understanding that over 130 Lions and friends have their backs.

Coupeville Lions are in their 80-plus years of service to the community.

A sell-out crowd of 170 were entertained by auctioneer Dale Sherman and magician JR Russell, while enjoying a delicious dinner and appetizers at the Oak Harbor Elks Club.

The auction, our annual garage sale and over 20 ongoing service projects give our members many opportunities to serve the community. Learn more about our club at www.CoupevilleLions.org
