There was great support for Movies in the Park | LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor:
Movies in the Park is one of our favorite small town traditions.
Bainbridge Island was recently treated to a series of free Friday night films aired outdoors in the Waterfront Park for the first three weeks of August. Although the program is in its 14th year, this is the second year the program has been provided by the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District. More than 500 participants attended to watch “Sleepless in Seattle,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “Babe.”
Town & Country Market, Wildernest, Island Health and Rehab, Virginia Mason Team Medicine, and the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art made this program possible through their generous sponsorships. We are also grateful to the many local businesses purchasing pre-movie advertising. Prizes and gift certificates were generously donated by more than 25 downtown-area merchants.
The evening festivities were emceed by the Movie Maven herself, TJ Faddis, who opened each event with entertaining stories, local lore, review and trivia games for prizes. Her crew, overseeing the technology and equipment, included Ron Carlson and Charlie Faddis. This program literally wouldn’t have happened without you!
The Bainbridge Island Downtown Association’s Sina Pradel and Andie Mackin offered vital support and assistance, as did Carolyn Hart of the 3M Digital Media Group. As always, tremendous appreciation goes to Ken Taylor of the City of Bainbridge Island who makes everything in this little corner of the island happen.
This program is a stellar example of everyone in Winslow offering their energies toward a common goal, with our friends, neighbors and families enjoying the rewards. See you all again next year — at the movies!
