To our generous community (and beyond) supporters:

by Raeanne Leonard 16th April 2018

My name is Raeanne Leonard, and I am with Photography by Raeanne. I am also PTA President with Broad View Elementary. The Broad View Elementary PTA is preparing for our biggest annual fundraiser on Friday, May 11th:  The Annual Basket Raffle. I am proud to be a part of this event and encourage Oak Harbor's business community to join us, whether as a donor or visitor.


It is a fun event for children, parents and the community.  We host many games, a raffle, an auction, concessions and entertainment.  We need your help to make this event a great success, again, because the proceeds from the Basket Raffle funds field trips, teacher allocation funds, our after-school enrichment program, other student/family events and supplies/equipment for the school.  Our goal is to earn $6000!


Again, this year we will host both a silent auction and a live Art Auction, featuring painted furniture pieces by Broad View students. Please consider donating a gift basket for our basket-raffle; a new item; an original craft, a service, a gift-certificate, a special talent or experience for our auction.  We kindly accept a wide range of offered donations from tickets to a game or play- to jars of jam- to a basket of kids’ craft supplies- to a bowling party- to hand-painted gift cards.  We also happily accept cash or check donations made out to BVE PTA.


To donate, please contact me, or bring your donation to the address below by May 5th, 2017.

I’ve always loved to fly. I grew up in a family of pilots – my dad was a bush pilot in Alaska and his brother, my uncle Don, retired as a 747 pilot. They built kit planes growing up, and I inherited that same fascination with flying.

Winter is just around the corner, and it’s time to think about cold weather safety; specifically hypothermia. Hypothermia is a dangerous drop in body temperature, usually caused by prolonged exposure to cold temperatures.
