Click to enlarge INAUGURAL HERRON ISLAND BIRD WALK
Our island ornithologist, Joseph Pentheroudakis, hosted our first Bird Walk. More than a dozen people showed up very early for a tour of inland birds. They even found pigeon guillemots, small black birds which nest in the holes of the cliffs at South Beach. Joseph hopes to hold another walk this fall when the water birds begin to migrate.
Thanks Joseph!

HERRON ISLAND SAILBOAT RACE XXII
Seven boats entered the race this time. Of course, perfect winds before the race quit just as the race started.
George Newcomb & Crew won the mono-hull division.
Curt Bray & Keith Ellis won the multi-hull division.
Many thanks to Curt for hosting the race - this year he came all the way from Nevada to be here!

The Boosters have all-new designs this year, from the 2001 Boosters T-shirts & sweatshirts to official Herron Island ballcaps. Islander Jack Tavenner designed the new cap logo.
Thanks to all the Boosters who manned the table, including Linda Moren, Claudia Jones and many others!
Coming soon to the website - online ordering for Boosters merchandise.

SWAP MEET
The Boosters hosted the morning Cinnamon Rolls & Coffee and the Swap Meet. Barbara Haskins & Mary Turpin packed up after a long and profitable day. All moneys earned go directly to island projects.
Thanks to all of the Boosters for their
endless work on behalf of Herron Island!

Unfortunately, our official website photographer was becalmed in the
sailboat race and didn't get the usual number of pics. Please
email me if you have any photos of the day
and I'll add them to the site. Thanks, Maggie
