heart leaf
Start a new tradition this Valentine season and spend a few hours with someone you love strolling the Reserve and learn about the real love story at the heart of the Bloedel legacy.
The Reserve is living expression of a beautiful love story.  Prentice and Virginia Bloedel shared a love of nature, and for one another, that was revealed in the gardens, ponds and glens, and within their home.  Ask for the special Cupid’s Walk map to find these sweet spots along the trails and also receive a special treat at the Gatehouse.  Cupid’s Walk is included with admission.

Bingo Night this Saturday!

Get Ready for Bingo Night 2017!
Saturday January 21, 2017
Grace Episcopal Church

Each January Arms Around Bainbridge brightens the dark days of the winter with a fantastic night out. Excellent food, friends and bingo come together to make a fundraiser to benefit our family of recipients.

This year in particular, as we search for ways to make sense of the climate in our country, it feels more appropriate than ever to turn where we can have a tremendous impact – right here in our own community. We can say that everyone matters; we can say that all humans deserve groceries and housing. We can say that those in need, who live right here on our tiny island, will not go wanting. We can say that facing a major medical crisis doesn’t have to break a family – that we’ve got their back.

Please plan to join us on Saturday, January 21 for outstanding food, warm friendship, rollicking bingo games and a paddle call to raise funds to support our family of recipients.

If you would like to host a table, please contact Jackie Fabbri at
