Dawn Janow, Chairperson of the Park Board of Commissioners and Emily Swift, Community Outreach Coordinator join us on What’s Up Bainbridge to kick off our several part series about the Park & Recreation District.  We’ll explore the history of the organization, why and how it was formed, some of the many significant changes that have occurred over the years and the many unique and varied experiences it provides for island residents of all ages.

In this edition we discuss several aspects including the new website for the Bainbridge Island Recreation Center (BIRC) and its open house, this Saturday, October 2nd, the very popular park passport program and the pumpkin carving contest scheduled for October 16.  We also talk about the very creative Haunted Hayride at Battle Point Park that will take place the evenings of October 19, 20 and 21st.
