BI Block Party goes back in time

Bainbridge Senior Living celebrated 31 years of service by hosting a 1950’s themed community block party and a silent auction to benefit the Bainbridge Island Senior Community Center Aug. 20 at Madrona House.

With something for all ages, attendees were treated to lunch, shaved ice, games and bouncy houses for the kids.

Friends and families took selfies at the photo booth while residents from Madrona House, and the public enjoyed a concert by an Elvis impersonator dressed in a white, rhinestone-studded jumpsuit.

Even Gov. Jay Inslee and his wife, Trudy, joined the nostalgic party with the governor sporting his Ingraham High School letterman’s jacket.

“It’s just nice to celebrate and have a little fun outside, and Elvis is here,” said Morgan Rohrbach, chief executive officer of Bainbridge Senior Living.
