Samish Info

This email group is intended for emergency or other important announcements that affect most islanders, especially health & safety issues. The group is moderated. There are two purposes:

  • Share information that is emergent: extreme weather conditions, floods, road conditions, road closures, and other info. Emergent generally means "important for people to know within the next 12-36 hours".

  • Receive the Shore Lines Newsletter at the beginning of the month, with link to the web page for additional updates during the month.

Once you are a member, you may either post messages that meet the criteria above, or reply to the group with additional information you might have about the topic.

This group is considered an announcement group. Replies go to the posting person. Reply All to the group.

Samish Neighbors

This group is intended as a neighborly discussion group - to request, share, borrow, lend, or discuss island things. Some examples:

  • Save or Share Resources: if you have something you want to give away, "recycle", borrow; if you have guests coming and need a high chair, car seat, life jackets, a couple extra chairs, etc.

  • Share or ask for info about contractors, workers, services, or professionals that others have used and liked.

  • Share Fresh Garden Produce: if you have extra rhubarb or basil to give away or sell, apples/blackberries that need picking, too many onion starts, onions to give away, zucchini coming out of your ears, post it on the group

  • It's ok to advertise things for sale, but the group is not intended to be an advertising medium for small businesses or individual interests.

  • Save Gas and Share Rides: If you need or would like to give a ride to Burlington or Seattle; you need stamps, or a quart of milk, a prescription, a book dropped off at the library -- try the email list.

  • Discuss items of interest to the island, such as something posted on the Samish Info email group that warrants further discussion.

  • Post lost and found: pets, boats, and other items of value.

  • We try to avoid politics or religion as topics. We just want to be neighborly.

  • "Reply" goes to the posting person. "Reply All" goes to the entire group.

Members, Sponsors and Donors are invited to join this group if you'd like to help with hands-on tasks. If you'd just like to support our efforts by providing financial and physical resources, our leader keeps a private list for general information affecting the garden.
