“Service and Community” – Rescheduled to March 9, 2019

Originally scheduled to be on February 19th - the Day of Remembrance anniversary when President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed
Executive Order 9066 on Feb. 19, 1942 - snow and uncertain weather conditions forced the cancellation and rescheduling of
“Service and Community” to March 9th, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Inspired by the unique legacy of a community that welcomed their Japanese American friends and neighbors home after World War II,
on March 9th from 10 AM – 2 PM, volunteers will gather for “Service and Community” at the Bainbridge Island Japanese American
Exclusion Memorial, offering landscaping maintenance and improvements to the National Historic Site, located at Pritchard Park,
4192 Eagle Harbor Drive, Bainbridge Island.

Hosted by the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community and generous support from the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park
and Recreation District, everyone is invited and welcome to pitch in and help. Please wear appropriate clothing for work and weather,
bring gloves and your own gardening tools.
