June 12 has shaped up to be an extremely busy day for ferry related meetings in Friday Harbor. Our local Ferry Advisory Committee (FAC) kicks of the morning, then the San Juan Islands Partnership Group (proposed vehicle reservations) meets most of the afternoon, and the day wraps up with WSF’s semi-annual community meeting. Details are listed below for each meeting.
All are public. Residents are encouraged to attend one or more of these meetings. Our interest in the ferry system is gauged (at least in part) by our participation. Please come!
