The “Dog Days of Summer” have arrived. The grass has stopped growing (finally!), and the garden out back needs a lot of extra watering just to keep it alive. School is out, and the grandkids are over just about every day. I wouldn’t have it any other way, either. The living room fan runs 27/7, and that new gas powered BBQ is finally getting a proper workout. The vacation you’ve been planning for years is calling your name, and, oh yes, the car is finally running like new. No excuses, now. Let’s go!

That’s what August is all about, isn’t it? Major kudos for the best garage sale, ever, and a well earned break, right? Yes and no! The kudos, definitely yes. A lot of hard work, sweat, tears, and perhaps a little blood went into that event. But the work never ends. We’ve already got people who are anxious to donate for next year. No rest for the, change that to no rest for the Coupeville Lions! And that’s how it should be. After all, we serve! continue reading

Great Job~ August 3-14- Ebey's Reserve Field School, Restoration of the Coupe House. Now that this year’s great garage sale is over and Coupeville Lions are getting their well deserved rest, it is time to start looking forward to Ebey's Reserve/Coupeville Lions eighth annual Building Preservation Field School.

This year’s school, restoring the Capt Thomas Coupe House at 504 Ninth Street in Coupeville, will be held the first two weeks of August. Unlike past years when the school was four weeks long, this year the school will be only two weeks, August 3-14, Monday thru Friday. Sessions are four hours in length, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We will learn how to restore and practice restoration of windows and siding. This school is open to individuals with all levels of experience.

This is one of the oldest houses on Whidbey; built by the namesake for Coupeville in 1852. This project provides participants with a rare opportunity to get up close to and to study this historic structure on the shores of Penn Cove.
Sarah Steen, Preservation Coordinator at Ebey's Landing National Historic Reserve, will be re-viewing the project at our meeting on July 22nd. If you have any questions, please contact Ron Boyer at
or call 678-1902.
