Flooding threatens store inventory at The Kingfisher Bookstore in Coupeville.

Buy a book online, help keep a local business afloat.

The Kingfisher Bookstore, which is located on the water side of Front Street in Coupeville, was one of the hardest hit by flooding Tuesday.

“It has been a hard, sad day,” store owners wrote on Facebook.

“A combination of tide, wind, rain and snowmelt led to six inches of seawater in our lower level this morning.”

Neighbors, friends, and others have rallied to help The Kingfisher, and other businesses affected by the onslaught of weather.

“We are so grateful to all the community members, some complete strangers, who came out to help with pumps in the morning, hauling truckloads of wet books out and setting up fans and heaters in the afternoon, and finally sandbags in the evening to try and keep the water out tomorrow morning,” the owners wrote.

“We can never thank you enough for your hard work, high spirits and hugs.”

One very easy, effective way to help The Kingfisher in its time of need is to place online orders, which can be done by jumping to the store website:

Get some Christmas shopping done and support Coupeville High School cheer — all from the comfort of your home.

With basketball (and flu) season underway, the Wolves are running a team fundraiser, selling Coupeville gear through Fan Cloth.

The campaign runs through next weekend.

With all the various seasonal maladies running wild, Wolf cheerleaders haven’t been able to be out and about in the community as much as they might like.

Coupeville cheer coaches Tara Crouch (left) and Jennifer Morrell lead the way.

“Our whole cheer team has pretty much been down with this crud that is going around and hasn’t been able to get out there and sell,” said CHS assistant cheer coach Tara Crouch.

“But there are some new items added, so if you’re looking for Wolf gear or just want to support our cheerleaders, we’d appreciate your order!”

The community dinner is back.

For the first time since the pandemic threw a wrench into things, the Coupeville Connected Food Program is holding a fundraiser full of tasty treats.

Chef Andreas Wurzrainer and his staff will tickle the tastebuds Oct. 5.

The event, which goes down in the Coupeville High School cafeteria (501 S. Main St.), runs from 5:30-6:30 PM.

Suggested donation is $6 per person or $25 for a family.

“We are super excited to have an anonymous donor who will be matching any donations,” Wurzrainer said.

“All donations will be used exclusively to buy locally,” he added.

“To continue our strong relationships with local farmers and vendors and continue our mission of locally sourced scratch cooked school lunches.”

The menu includes pasta with meatballs from 3 Sisters Family Farms and marinara from tomatoes grown by the school farm.

There will also be prairie farm salad, kale salad with apples and cranberries, and a DaSilva Farms blueberry cupcake.
