Earth Day Celebration & Clean Up

Help us clean up South Bay Trail this Earth Day. Summertime is just around the corner, which means plenty of morning strolls, sunny afternoon walks and evening bike rides from downtown to Fairhaven. Enjoy views of the Bay while helping tidy up a trail that is “a tourist’s dream and a sweet summer spot for locals." Come with your friends, co-workers, or even just bring yourself for this short morning of cleaning up our backyard. Don't forget to bring long layers, closed-toed shoes, water and a snack. Meeting spot is still being determined, check Facebook event link for updates. Volunteers can enjoy $2 off lunch during Beer Week at Boundary Bay after our morning clean-up (we highly suggest pairing your meal with our Inside Passage Ale, named after the coastal route for ships and boats we’ll see from the trail), or continue on down the trail to Boulevard Park and Fairhaven to soak up more sunshine. Free // All-ages // Open to the public.

Samuel Gailey - The Guilt We Carry

Since the tragic accident that brutally ended her childhood, Alice O’Farrell has been haunted by her past. After her complicity in her younger brother’s death, Alice runs away from home and lives on the streets. Everything changes when she discovers a duffel bag containing ninety-one thousand dollars. However, Alice quickly finds herself having to escape circumstances far more harrowing than her own past. When the lives of those closest to her are threatened, Alice is faced with her day of reckoning. In the end, The Guilt We Carry is a story about redemption and forgiveness, but at what cost? Samuel Gailey was raised in a small town in northeast Pennsylvania (population 379) and now resides on Orcas Island with his wife, author Ayn Gailey, and daughter. The Guilt We Carry is his second novel, following the critically acclaimed Deep Winter.
