February has been our membership drive month for the past few years.  Soon you’ll be receiving your membership renewal letters in the mail.  Unlike other organizations or clubs with a set fee, we like to give our members options for their donation amounts.  Friends of Chinook School is a non-profit organization and therefore all dues and donations are tax deductible.  Your generosity along with rental fees, help us maintain these amazing historic buildings in pristine condition.  Its quite an effort to keep up with the maintenance and operation of these buildings.

We would love it if even more people made use of our community building and event center rental spaces.  Remember that your membership affords you a discount for rentals of the classroom spaces and the event center.  If you have a special group or club looking for space to meet or hold a special event, Please consider chinook school buildings as an option.  Please go to or call Wed-Sunday at
(360) 244-3627 for more information.

This past year we were able to add a commercial dishwasher and another refrigerator freezer to the kitchen at the event center.  So thankful, as it makes things go smoother for larger events.  Let us know if you have other positive suggestions for the spaces.

We continue to look for new members for our board as well as new volunteers to help with many events throughout the year.  If you would like to participate please call the school or contact any of our board members and join in the fun.

Oktoberfest dinner and auction, at the end of September, is our main celebration and fund raiser.  This past year it was a rounding success.  The food was great, the decor was so bright and fun and visiting with old friends was just so special.  We hope you will all join us for fun, good food, music, and community.  Hope to see you all there!

Thank you so much to your continued commitment to Friends of Chinook School.
