Do it for Mittens.

And Sparky, and Lil’ Lulu, and the Colonel.

Take part in a bowling fundraiser for the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation this weekend, and your lane activity will benefit the pooches and kitties of the Island.

WAIF is hosting an event at Oak Bowl & Mario’s Pizza (531 SE Midway Blvd) Sunday, July 31 with proceeds going to benefit its work.

The fundraiser runs from 1:00-3:30 PM, costs $20 per person and covers two hours of bowling plus shoe rental.

There will also be a 50/50 raffle (cash only!) with $10 tickets. Hit the jackpot and you take home half the ticket sales.

Money raised from the fundraiser will help WAIF with general operations and its animal welfare program.

That includes things such as spay/neuter coupons for low-income households, as well as food, toys and medication for the animals.

Register in advance for the fundraiser at waifanimals.org/lets-bowl and you’ll be eligible to nab one of two $50 gift cards from Popsies, a popcorn/ice cream/candy store in Oak Harbor.

Kristin Hurlburt with children Sylvia and Larry.

In action and word, Kristin Hurlburt touched many.

She brought a smile to everyone she met, whether working in the Coupeville High School lunchroom, cruising the sidelines at a Wolf sporting event, or engaging in conversation when she ran into you out in the “real world.”

As I documented the athletic and academic success of her children, Larry and Sylvia, their mom was a ray of sunshine, a truly caring woman in every way.

Cancer claimed her physical body, but her spirit never waned.

Kristin’s beautiful soul remained untouched through her darkest hours, and as her beloved granddaughter grows up, she will be blessed to hear stories about Nanna K and the joy she brought into this world.

As the family prepares for a Celebration of Life —  Celebrate the life of an amazing woman | Coupeville Sports — it asks that people make donations to support the Whidbey Animals’ Improvement Foundation, in lieu of sending flowers.

“While mom loved flowers, she loved animals even more,” Sylvia Hurlburt said. “Thank you all so much for your love during this time.”


To donate by mail, send checks to: 

PO Box 1108
Coupeville, WA 98239

**Write “in memory of Kristin Hurlburt” on the memo line.


To donate online, pop over to:

WAIF | Helping Whidbey Island Pets and Their People (waifanimals.org)

**There is an option to include a loved one’s name on the donation form.

If you know something, call or email today.

If the community works together, the little coward who killed a dog in Oak Harbor Monday will be caught and punished.

Let’s not be too gentle here — throwing a dog out of a moving vehicle, leading to that animal being hit by multiple vehicles and having to be euthanized — means you’re a scumbag.

There is no explanation which will change my opinion.

If you disagree, go blow it out your ass and stop reading Coupeville Sports. You won’t be missed.

Personally, I would prefer the guilty party be tossed out of a moving vehicle themselves.

If you are of the 99.9% of the world which is rightfully pissed off at this, please read the info in the picture above.

And, if you know anything, drop a dime.

Whether you do it for the money or because you’re a good person, just do it.
