We had a great WinterFest. Lot's of people downtown and exciting events with new stores and pop-ups. A big THANK YOU goes out to the Kitsap Credit Union for sponsoring the event. At our last meeting we discussed expanding WinterFest to Saturday. Possibly keeping Friday night more like a traditional ArtWalk and using Saturday to close streets for carriage rides, light the tree and have pictures with Santa. Your input is valuable to the success of downtown. We are also looking in to ways to bring the shaved ice from the skating rink downtown for some snow fun. This year we are adding a Santa Crawl as suggested by member Harold Hartley at Navy Federal. Details are to the left.
in 2016 we will continue to meet on the Second Tuesday at 9am at the library on 5th. We have also adopted the sustainable networking group GreenDrinks to continue its community presence and add it to the DBA as our business after hours event. We hope to see you on the second Thursday.
We wanted to host a membership get together for the holidays and decided to have a "Holiday Recovery Party" in January (clear of any important football games). We are looking a Sunday afternoons. More details to come.
We hope you are having a good holiday season and a safe one too.
Michael Goodnow, president
Downtown Bremerton Association
Oh, and thanks to those who helped get the lights on the trees! If you see a tree out check the plug and GFCI reset - if they are still out let Carlos at Toro know.
