Bainbridge Chamber Responds to Multicultural Demands
Visitors to the Chamber's Visitor Information Center come from many different countries and a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. Lack of fluency in English often limits these visitors' experience and enjoyment of our community.
For the coming tourism season we hope to lower the language barrier with the help of volunteers who are fluent in other languages, e.g., Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, French, German and any others, through an on-call language bank program. With this program and some multilingual content on our web site, we are looking to meet the demands of the 21st Century visitor. If you have an interest in supporting this program, please contact Mickey Molnaire or call the Chamber at 206-842-3700.
