Welcome to Samish Island!

“No Island Like Samish Island”

The Samish Island Community Center’s (SICC) mission is to encourage community development and interaction through educational and social activities among islanders. To that end, it also maintains the community center property as the primary place to gather.

We acknowledge that Samish Island is within the aboriginal territory of the Samish Indian Nation. They were and are respected for their spiritual, cultural, and traditional values and practices, such as weaving, carving, and building of longhouses. The Samish People lived here in stewardship of the lands and waterways of the Salish Sea since time immemorial.   https://www.samishtribe.nsn.us/

Samish Island Clean-Up Days

On the last Sunday of each month this summer, get outside and take a walk from noon to 3:00 pm. Carry a trash bag with you to pick up whatever litter you see along the roadside or on the beach.

It’s a great way to beautify our neighborhood, get some exercise, and chat with neighbors.

You can pick up trash any time, but by narrowing an intentional time frame from noon to 3:00 pm, a social element is added. See you out there! 

Samish Stories

Samish Island Stories

We’d like to make the community center (SICC) more personal and reflective of our community. So we are asking you to provide us with your memories.

We are looking for old family or outdoor photos, a drawing or craft, a favorite old hat, or school or garden awards. Flat items—original pictures or a copy—are to be donated with a simple wood picture frame to make it all part of a collection. We will make a special display at the community center to share your stories. If you need help with a frame or can donate one for this project, we’ll do our best to put it together in Samish style.

Please dig out those memories and text or call Marnie for pick up or delivery or with questions.
