  1. My family visited PO yesterday having come over by boat from BI. I was very impressed with the focus, organization and the high energy shown downtown. There was a sound stage and young people doing their variation of American Idol. There were contractors, civilians and store owners turning and burning in very hot weather.

    On BI, we instead do $10M +++ extravaganzas that are in litigation and paralysis for years.

    Bravo Zulu to PO group organizing this event. By the way, you have an fabulous dock that is a real crown jewel.

  2. Is it possible to post some pictures of what it looks like now. Pretty hard to comment without seeing them. Thanks

  3. As a Port Orchard citizen and frequent visitor to the downtown area with my children, I was pleased to see the community come together and make our little charming town so beautiful. Thank you to Delilah and all of the people who helped organize this. I can’t wait to bring friends and family down to enjoy.

  4. I visited downtown Port Orchard on Sunday and was moved by all the volunteers working to improve the town. While some of the colors are not ones I would have chosen they are an improvement over what was there previosly. I was very put off by the negative signs and notes placed in the windows (and in one case on a support post) by local business owners…shame on you! Thank you Delilah, volunteers and businesses that chose to participate in this city improvement.

  5. Kudos to Delilah for helping to improve Port Orchard! We live in Vancouver, WA, and came up to help paint the town with our son, who is a local resident. It was amazing to see everyone working together for the good of the community. Port Orchard citizens should be thankful they have their very own “fairy godmother” to brighten their community. We drove through the town Sunday night after the street was opened and it was truly an amazing sight to see….a much brighter and cleaner Port Orchard!

  6. Thank you for all these comments. People worked so hard on this project and it is nice to read heartwarming tributes to their efforts. Heather pulled 60 hour work weeks, volunteering her time for free to coordinate the color scheme and meet with business and building owners. Robert Baglio coordinated the painting contractors, who came out and worked two 12 hour days. Robert also picked up the lunch tab for a room full of volunteers at Moondogs Too on Sunday. I was very impressed with PO City Councilman, Jim Colebank, who cut all the brambles out of the trees on the far East side of town. He was covered in bloody scratches when he was done, but does it ever look better!!!

    Thank you to Leah, who brought all her kids, and who coordinated volunteers, including several marines.

    200 to 300 volunteers came out each day, which is overwhelming. We could have still used more on Sunday. There is still much to be done, but it does look better. So,thank you all for your kind words.
