Happy May Day to our FHL friends and family!
On Friday night, we had a lovely meal celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the FHL Advancement Board. This enthusiastic group of FHL supporters was the brilliant foresight of previous Director Dennis Willows and friend and supporter Bob Lundeen. The present Advancement Board has over 30 members that are dedicated to Friday Harbor Laboratories and support all of our programs. In just the past few years, they have helped us get the R/V Centennial back on track, raise money every year for Adopt-A-Student in support of our summer students, and provide research support to FHL graduate students and faculty. Hats off to this wonderful group of people that work so hard to make FHL a better place!
