The Olympia Kiwanis Club (OKC) has had the distinct privilege of hosting Olympia Harbor Days for the last 9 years. However, we have regretfully decided to suspend our continued sponsorship of Olympia Harbor Days so that we may maintain the financial viability of OKC and its other charitable activities. Due to the significant losses incurred by the OKC as a result of the cancellation of 2020 Olympia Harbor Days due to COVID-19 pandemic, the impact to other OKC fundraising from the pandemic, and the continued financial risk towards hosting a 2021 Olympia Harbor Days event and the possibility it may not be possible or profitable, we have contacted the South Sound Maritime Heritage Association and notified them we must discontinue our sponsorship of this event. We look forward to working with SSMHA and other stakeholders to find a way to continue this cherished event.
For more information please contact Denise Steigers, OKC President at 360-451-3549.
