Despite a heavy snowfall the evening prior and a tree down on one of the access roads, Cortes Islanders showed fortitude and did turn out through out the day. Stories from other successful communities were shared, survey results were reviewed and participants mapped out an island SWOT (strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats). Reviewing what had already been learned, people discussed economic potentials and listed ideas on what steps are needed to go forward.
