Our Summer 2018 Charity of the Quarter!

July 2, 2018

Summer in the San Juan Islands is rich with historical significance – from our small-town 4th of July to the infamous Pig War.

What better way to celebrate than by selecting the San Juan Historical Society and Museum as our Summer Charity of the Quarter?

Founded in 1961, the Historical Society and Museum has been an incredible resource for locals and visitors alike to learn about early life in the San Juan Islands. With artifacts, photographs and stories dating as far back as the 19th Century, there is no shortage of history to be had!

The Society and Museum are run entirely on community donations – let’s help preserve the fascinating heritage of this place we call home! Learn more about SJHS and our island at www.sjmuseum.org or follow them on Facebook.

So how can you help?

  • Refer a friend or family member to Safe Harbor! For every referral we receive, we will donate $10 to the Historical Society.
  • Start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.com and choose “San Juan Historical Society” as your charity. Amazon will donate a portion of the proceeds to SJHS.
  • Donate directly on the San Juan Historical Society and Museum website! Become an annual member and receive benefits such as free entry to the museum and discounts at the gift shop.
  • As always, keep an eye here on our blog and on our Facebook page for more ways to get involved!
