Welcome to a new year, September 2020! I’m Susan Butler Hancock and I’ve been a resident in Indianola for 45 years. My family started coming here when I was a teenager in the summertime. Wow, there were no houses on the spit! We swam to Clam Island, dug clams and roasted them at the end of the spit. Both of my parents and step-mother have served the IBIC as volunteers; Jerry and Shirley Butler and Ann Butler Callow. So, I learned about volunteering early on!
Change is not a bad thing, but this year had been a doozie! I hope you are all doing the best you can coping with isolation, loss of jobs, schooling from home, etc, etc. I do care about our town and hope to create a welcoming atmosphere for ALL! I am pleased to let you know the Trustees voted unanimously to ask the Suquamish Tribe to set up a liaison with us.
I’m also please to announce that our Clubhouse was given a fiber optic Wi-Fi router from KPUD. So, if any of you don’t have appropriate internet at home to be able to complete your school work, come hang out in the Pavilion or Gill Park. We are looking into opening up the Clubhouse for a few students at a time, with a monitor. Please let me know if this is something that would help your family.
Please feel free to contact me at: Susan Hancock firstname.lastname@example.org with any concerns, ideas, or any thank you’s to someone you see doing a helpful thing.
Susan Hancock, IBIC President
