FICRA Building Trust

The FICRA Building Trust is the non profit organization that owns the Nichols Community Center and the adjacent Fox Island Nature Center.

The FICRA Building Trust needs your donations to help preserve the historic Nichols Community Center. In the years ahead, the FICRA Building Trust will be undertaking a capital campaign to fund much needed renovations to the Nichols Community Center. We hope to raise enough money to insulate the building, replace the worn out floors throughout, upgrade the windows, refurbish the kitchen and bathrooms, and put money aside for any future improvements that might arise.The FICRA Building Trust needs your donations to help preserve the historic Nichols Community Center.

Fox Island Sand and Soil Garden Club

The Fox Island Sand and Soil Garden Club was established in 1979.  They  meet the  2nd Thursday of each month, September thru June, at 11 a.m. Chapel on Echo Bay (400 6th Avenue).  Pot luck luncheon following each meeting. Membership fee: $10.00 per year.

Membership is not limited to Fox Island residents. We welcome and invite all people interested in gardening, regardless of your address, ability, garden or no garden, or the status of your green thumb :). Our stated purpose is "To stimulate and share the love and knowledge of gardening among members, friends, and neighbors."  Attend one of our meetings... and bring a friend!

Our members currently volunteer their efforts toward our "perennial" projects, which include:

  • Fox Island Cemetery flag pole and garden, and Memorial Day wreath: Planning, planting, and helping to maintain the site.
  • Gardens at the Chapel on Echo Bay: Assisting with planting and maintaining.
  • Annual Fox Island Plant Sale held at the Nichols Community Center the first Saturday in May: Participating in the planning and work effort with FICRA and the Fox Island Garden Club.

And there's so much more to discover about our activities. Come join us in our efforts to learn all we can from one another, share plants, have fun, and just do our small part to help keep Fox Island beautiful!
