Network at After Hours

Or perhaps this month, it should be called transmitting rather than networking. This month’s Chamber of Commerce After Hours will celebrate the new Transmitter Buildling at Battle Point Park.

The gathering, hosted by the Bainbridge Island Park and Recreation District, will take place from 5:30-7 p.m. April 24. The public is invited to tour the facility, nosh on food and sip beverages. For information, call 842-3700.

BAC joins Get Active campaign

Americans are the most overweight population in the world, and many people are looking for a solution.

As part of the national Get Active! campaign, Bainbridge Athletic Club, with its Meadowmeer and XPress locations, will offer free workouts as a “first step” in the direction of fitness. The club will open its doors free to the public the week of May 12-18; guests will be given free access to the club’s state-of-the-art exercise equipment and an array of exercise classes. Visitors who would like to join Bainbridge Athletic Club during Get Active America! week will benefit from Bainbridge Athletic Club’s Summer for Free promotion, the Club’s most robust promotion of the year.
