Island Center

The Samish Island Community Center is owned and operated by the Samish Island Community Center (S.I.C.C.). It is located at 11292 Blue Heron Road, Bow, WA 98232 (map).

The Community Center has been an integral part of Island life since 1946, when one acre of land was donated by Carl and Anna Rasar for the sole purpose of a community center. Fundraisers and donations by the newly formed Samish Island Civics Club helped build the hall, which was opened in 1948.

The Community Center also serves the island as an emergency shelter during winter power outages. There is propane heat & stove to keep warm and eat. Contact a board member for a key, or the hall rental agent listed below in "How to schedule the community center."

Your annual dues and donations help support hall maintenance & needs.
