Rebuild Stage at
Poulsbo’s Raab Park
Employees of Windermere Real Estate’s Poulsbo office recently rebuilt the music stage at Raab Park in Poulsbo as part of the company’s Community Service Day.
The 25-year-old stage had been condemned by the city, putting the Chamber of Commerce Commerce’s annual American Music Festival in jeopardy. The city lacked funds to make repairs, so some 40 Windermere employees spent June 18 rebuilding and repainting the stage.
Materials, labor and financial support were supplied by Home Depot, Peninsula Paints and Costco.
A new Bremerton eatery, the Hootchie Coochie Cafe, recently opened its doors in Bremerton. It is owned by military retiree Gary Weeks and features Creole and American options, with no item priced higher than $5.50. Daily specials include an entree, salad or coleslaw, and cornbread or toast.
Breakfast and lunch are available.
The restaurant, which offers a free Internet connection, is open from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 853 Sixth St., just east of Warren Avenue. There is free parking on the west side of the building.
