HIYI YOUTH SCHOLARSHIP FUND The Healthy Island Youth Initiative (HIYI) Committee solicits donations to support ongoing efforts to keep organized healthy activities affordable for all local youth in Island County.

The South Whidbey Parks & Aquatics Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization, is the fiscal agent for HIYI, and receives, holds and distributes funds upon direction from the HIYI committee. Donations to this fund may now be tax deductible. Donations to the scholarship fund can be made payable to South Whidbey Parks & Aquatics Foundation, and should be mailed to PO Box 157, Freeland, WA 98249, with a note on the memo line directing it to the “HIYI Scholarship Fund”. Any Whidbey Island youth may apply for assistance to participate in any organized sport or physical activity. The needs-based scholarships are awarded based on financial criteria and commitment to the activity. Those interested in receiving financial assistance should call Carrie at (360) 221-6788 or visit https://www.islandcountywa.gov/Health/AHC/ PublishingImages/Pages/HIYI-Scholarship/ HIYIApplication5.2016.pdf and print off an application.

FINGERSTYLE GUITAR BOOT CAMP Take your playing to the next level!
ADULTS & YOUTH 16+ Ready to stop strumming and start fingerpicking? This workshop is geared towards folks with some playing experience who want to learn how to play “fingerstyle”. Students should have knowledge of first position chords (C,A,G,E,D,F,Am,Dm,Em) and basic rhythmic strumming. You will learn how to play fingerstyle arrangements of songs in bluegrass, celtic, country, folk, gospel, rock, blues and jazz styles. We’ll start with the basics in arpeggio and Travis picking patterns and move on to basic chord melody. You’ll get tips and techniques for playing bass lines and melodies at the same time. You’ll get easy to understand tablature and notation for all the arrangements. Songs will be derived from both traditional and contemporary sources. Please bring an acoustic guitar.
