40th Legislative District Representative Jeff Morris with Concerto Board President, Pamela Michael and Trustee, Keith Whitaker at the Launch Concerto! event. Representative Morris spoke of the value of public/private partnerships and how that kind of collaboration was the only way it would be possible to address these kinds of important, much needed services.
Rick Hughes, who represents Orcas Island on the San Juan County Council, spoke with enthusiasm about the personal and economic benefits that the Concerto Project will bring to the County, and shared some ideas about how to create new job opportunities and provide gainful employment for residents.
These are a few sketches that Orcas Island resident Laura Jung made for the presentation. Laura has also graciously donated her time to research kitchen equipment and costs, and to collect recipes for the Concerto community kitchen daily lunches.
