Dawn Janow, Chairperson of the Park Board of Commissioners and Scott James, the founder and Board Chair of Bainbridge Prepares join us on What’s Up Bainbridge in another of 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.

Scott discusses the unique and important partnership between Bainbridge Prepares and the Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District, how this relationship works and why this is important to island residents.  He talks about the Disaster Hub system, other important partner agencies and the important role volunteers play in making it all work so well.
