Bainbridge Island honors the spirit of volunteerism

From working with the Rotary Club of Bainbridge Island in time for its annual rummage sale to serving on one of the city's many advisory committees, about three out of four residents volunteer their time to Bainbridge Island.

Without them, there would be a huge gap in providing city services and community events.

This is why the city is teaming up with the Bainbridge Community Foundation to honor the approximately 17,770 volunteers on Bainbridge Island.

The two organizations will host a Bainbridge Island Volunteer Celebration from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Monday, April 7 at the Waterfront Park Community Center.

The event is free and open to the public.

A short presentation will begin at 5:15 p.m. where attendees will share stories that illustrate Bainbridge's commitment to serving the community.

Some highlights of volunteer work will also be on display at the event.

Residents are encouraged to send their volunteer stories to arichards@bainbridgewa.gov or post them on the Bainbridge Island Volunteer Celebration Facebook event at www.facebook.com/citybainbridgeisland.
