April Get-together at BIMA
The sunshine was most welcome when BIWC members met up to stroll through the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, admire the spring collection, browse the gift shop and enjoy each other’s company,
It was so nice to run into familiar faces. We then made our way to the Fletcher Bay Winery downtown Winslow location for some refreshment and conviviality.
Thanks to all who attended, not only did we have fun, but members donated 22 pounds of food and $165 to Helpline House!
Hope Glows Lumeneria Event
BIWC has been invited to participate in an uplifting event hosted by Bainbridge Youth Services. (Please see the letter below from Cezanne Allen, Executive Director of BYS.) The event involves decorating luminaria bags that will be used to decorate downtown Winslow. On February 5th, BIWC will join the rest of Bainbridge Island to enjoy this community expression of hope. The BIWC Board is developing a plan for members to access the materials and perhaps a way to celebrate together. More information is coming soon, so stay tuned!
Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. Desmond Tutu.
We were so fortunate to have April Avey Trabuco from Raising Resilience speak to us about the role of Raising Resilience on Bainbridge Island. April also addressed available research/tips about coping with stress and developing our own resilience. If you were not able to join us last Thursday, you are welcome to watch the recording below. (Please note that there’s a brief audio pause near the beginning when a video April planned to show us was not able to stream – She then continues her presentation).
