Old friends and new turned out as Grow Community celebrated our history at a community potluck a few weeks back. Venue was Grow's new community center - only half finished, but still a great setting for this homecoming that crossed the generations.
Honored guest was Jerry Grow, great-grandson of island pioneer Ambrose Grow, who came up from Long Beach for the occasion. Former residents of the old Government Way military housing project also shared their stories, as did veterans from the Colin Hyde Post of the American Legion with neighborhood ties. What a great evening it was!
Thank you to everyone who came to enjoy an evening of fellowship and honor our neighborhood history.
Jerry Grow left a quieter, simpler Bainbridge Island as a youngster in 1955.
But his memories conjure images that would be familiar to generations of islanders before and since: attending services at the Congregational Church downtown, marching in the Fourth of July parade, learning to fish from a boat his great-uncle Fred kept on Eagle Harbor.
A direct descendent of bonafied island pioneer family, Grow returned to Bainbridge in July as an honored guest at the "Sharing Our History" reception in Grow Community's new neighborhood hall...
A warm summer has brought
the Park neighborhood to life, resplendent with its first round of trees, grasses, pea patches and plantings.
Centerpiece is the new
Community Center, where the planter beds have already been filled by enthusiastic neighbors looking forward to future harvests. The center's solar canopy is now in place, with system installation set for October once the roofing is done...
the Sage building is wrapping up nicely with some new residents already moved in, and more new neighbors arriving over the next several months. New neighbors in
the Lilac townhomes will follow....
Great opportunities to purchase are still available in the
Grove & Park neighborhoods with their mix of single-level homes, townhomes and single-family residences. With beautifully designed, ultra-efficient solar homes, the Grove & Park set a new standard for healthy, sustainable living.
