Because it’s the most wonderful time of the year

Here in Bremerton, we don’t take the holidays for granted. Take, for instance, the 33rd annual Special People’s Cruise, in which boaters at the Bremerton Yacht Club — for the 33rd year in a row — gave their guests Dec. 7 a ride around Puget Sound.

Or what about the 25 or so people who went out to grave sites at Ivy Green Cemetery to clean them in preparation for the Wreaths Across America event?

And there’s more to come, too. How about Salish Soap Co., whose owner, Dana Stephens Littell, is collecting clothing and toys for four children in our community? (More on that at her Facebook page.)

There is our Bellringer fund, which has already raised close to $40,000 this year.

There is the pop-up street store, which on Dec. 23-24 at Sixth and Broadway, in which all of the yard sale items are free. (Remaining items will be donated to charities.)

But there’s so much more here in Bremerton that residents here do at the holidays. So please: help me to add to this list! I want to showcase the generosity of this community here.
