Marrowstone Island Community Association (MICA) was established in
1950 and incorporated in the State of Washington. The Association
has been approved as a non-profit organization but is unable to
accept Federal income tax-deductible donations.
The object of MICA is to provide a common meeting place for residents and land owners on Marrowstone Island, to serve as a forum for education and information, and to represent the interests of the island.
MICA meets at the Nordland Garden Club clubhouse at 320 Garden Club Road on the third Monday evening during September, November, January, March and May. An Association business meeting is conducted at each gathering, followed by a program of general interest to the membership. The first gathering each fiscal year in September begins with a community potluck supper.
Membership is open to all residents and/or property owners of the Island who are at least eighteen years of age.
MICA sponsors an annual Strawberry Festival in June as well as other social events during the year. Residents and visitors enjoy strawberry shortcake at the festival. Strawberries were once grown all over Marrowstone Island and can be found growing wild in many places.
General meeting announcements are posted on the Island entrance signboard and at the Nordland Store. Announcements of meetings and events are also disseminated over various electronic list servers on the Island.
