Bank Of The
10K Race 4 FISH
Bank of the Islands shows its sup-
port of the 7th annual 10K Race
4 FISH as a silver sponsor. The
carefully plotted foot race, which draws
hundreds of runners each year, benefits
the neighbor-helping-neighbor organiza-

Islands for its wonderful contribution
to FISH and its 10K race,” said FISH
Board Vice Chair Ed Ridlehoover, who
