Weather: “A major change in the weather is coming this weekend,” the National Weather Service warns. The first in a series of winter storms is predicted to arrive tonight or Saturday morning, with heavy rain and wind expected.

Sports: Bainbridge swimmers capped their season with three state titles, taking second as a team. The winter sports season begins after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Around the island: 

  • Call it Green Friday. A gift exchange hosted by the Bainbridge LDS church celebrates recycling and reusing. It begins this evening, when islanders can drop off lightly used items for re-gifting from 4-9 p.m. People who drop off items receive credits. They can return between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday to “shop” for other people’s re-gifted items. The church is located on Madison Avenue, next to Ordway Elementary. See full gift guidelines here.
  • Northwest musician Gary Stroutsos performs improvisational flute music and Native American stories at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Bainbridge Performing Arts. Tickets are $12 for adults. The performance coincides with a display of native art on featured at BPA through the end of the month.
  • Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra presents its free fall concert from 7-8 p.m. Saturday at Island Church, 9624 Sportsman Club Road.
  • Pick up this week’s Islander for more event listings and tell us about your events in the comment section below.

Inside the Islander: A “Soup’r” new restaurant opens in the Pavilion.

The week in review: 

 Coming Up: The City Council meets Monday instead of Wednesday next week because of the holiday. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving week.
