Ten Years ago Scott Fraser wanted to give back to the community of Oak Harbor.  He and many others put together a Pig roast and Block party.  It is a wonderful meal for anyone and money for some excellent charities.  Oak Harbor is a close knit community that happens to house one of the largest Navy bases in the country. The people of Oak Harbor drive a host of charitable organizations making it an exceptional place to call home.
