Letters to the Editor

Visiting film crew was impressed by islanders | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

As many community members have seen, the dental health company, Oral-B has arrived on our island for a week’s worth of filming of a national television commercial for the launch of one of their new toothbrushes. Last week, the farmers market made a one-time exception to our rules and hosted their outreach team to help them interact with our community as they got started with their project.

We wanted to share the feedback from the New York City-based film crew about our island, citizens, and community in general. They continually raved about how beautiful our island was, how friendly the people were, and how excited they were to spend a week on the island. We beamed with pride as they commented about how Bainbridge is like “going back in time to the good ol’ days.”

We should all take a moment and congratulate each other for instilling this energy throughout our beloved community.

With that said, our farmers market sincerely apologizes to any citizens that felt our one-time exception was not appropriate. We completely understand and ensure you we were simply trying to be good team members of our local business community as we recognize the island-wide economic impact that comes to all local businesses from having a large film crew sleep, eat, shop and play on our island for an entire week. We look forward to returning to normal market operations from here forward.
