Evening of spaghetti and swing benefits Stanwood groups

Enjoy dinner and music at a fundraiser that will benefit several Stanwood groups.

CAMANO ISLAND -- Fundraisers to support the Stanwood Area Historical Society, Safe Harbor Free Clinic and the tourism department of the Stanwood Chamber of Commerce are scheduled for Saturday.
The Moonlight Swing Orchestra plays from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday at the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center, 27130 102nd Ave NW in Stanwood.
A meal of spaghetti, garlic bread, salad, dessert and coffee is to be served from 6 to 7 p.m. Tickets are available in advance and at the door for $30 per person or $50 a couple. Beer and wine will be available for an additional charge.
The idea for this fundraiser came from Ed Pearson, a Stanwood High School graduate and member of the Moonlight Swing Orchestra.
A trombone player, Pearson had always wanted the band to play in Stanwood. After touring the D.O. Pearson House Museum, he suggested that the band play a fundraiser to benefit the Stanwood Area Historical Society, which offers the community historic programs, research services, the museum, and the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center.
The event also benefits the Stanwood Chamber of Commerce, which supports community organizations and events, including the Harvest Jubilee, Stanwood Camano Area Foundation scholarships, the Port Susan Snow Goose & Birding Festival and the Old Fashioned Christmas in Stanwood.
For more information, call 360-629-0562.
Also Saturday, the Camano Center and Safe Harbor Free Clinic welcome Graham Kerr, TV personality, author and food expert, and documentary filmmaker Michael Lienau, who plan a presentation about personal and neighborhood emergency preparedness.
This free presentation is from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Camano Center, 606 Arrowhead Road. Coffee and cookies will be served. Donations will be accepted.
Call 360-387-0222 for more information.
