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 power outages during winter storms. There is propane heat & stove to keep warm there. Contact a board member for a key, or the hall rental agent listed below in "How to schedule the community center."

Your annual dues of $10 help support hall maintenance & needs.

Rental Basics:

Rental Details:

Many more useful details are in the Rental Information Guide. We recommend that you print the pages you need and bring them with you to your rental. There is valuable information such as emergency contacts, equipment directions - and the very important damage deposit checklist that you must return with the key.

Please Note: There is no wireless service at the hall; cell tower signals are weak inside the hall. This is good, if you prefer a conversational gathering. One can usually get a cell signal by stepping outside.


Forms to print or save. Each item is in the Rental Information Guide.
