Events & Announcements

For the time being, we will only have a calendar listing on the website. The old calendar did not work on iPads, iPhones or Android phones and slowed down the Events page loading. This is only until we deploy the new website in the next few months. Don’t forget to RSVP! This will aid us in planning future events.

“Please help us insure all of our gatherings are free of drugs and alcohol. This includes activities not at Samish venues.”



    20th Maiden-Blanket Design

We have finished mailing blankets. If you haven’t received one and enrolled before 2017, we either don’t have your mailing address or only have a P.O. box. We need a physical address for FedEx to deliver a blanket. Please contact Jackie (; 360-293-6404 ext 126) to confirm your mailing address.


    The Beaver Lodge is open to anyone who would like to carve or learn carving. Open days are Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Fridays. The Carving Circle meets on Thursdays.
