Help close the gap on property purchase | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

Yesterday I rode my bike to the Bainbridge Island Land Trust Hilltop property. The sun was hot, Miller Road was inches thick at the edges with gravel after being “paved,” but it was all worth it when I got to the top of the island.

I cast my eye west to the Olympics, saw a couple enjoying the view in shade of a massive maple, and a family headed down the trail into the cool of the Grand forest.

What a gift to the island!

And it’s nearly paid for. I hope all my fellow islanders will join me in writing a check to the Bainbridge Island Land Trust and closing the gap and completing the purchase. Or do it online at www.bi-landtrust.org.

Think I’ll ride up to Gazzam Lake next. How ‘bout you?
