BIDA Tree Lighting Ceremony

PSE generously supports various events for the Bainbridge Island Downtown Association, including the annual Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony that took place November 24 at Winslow Green. The evening entertainment included local community members of the Bainbridge High School band playing several music selections to set the tone and help to get attendees in the Christmas spirit.Sanda and elves wait for event goers at the BIDA tree lighting

Ballet performances, offering several selections from the Nutcracker, were provided by the Bainbridge Ballet, and members of the Bainbridge Performing Arts and Ovation’s Crescendo Choir sang popular Christmas songs.

To top everything off, Santa took time out of his busy schedule to make an appearance with Mrs. Clause and some of his elves to kick off the tree lighting ceremony, while ending the evening with photos with children and adults alike.

This November/December, PSE was a proud sponsor of two artists at the winter Bainbridge Island Studio Tour. Deborah Rhee and Dinah Satterwhite displayed their work at the Masonic Lodge. This self-guided art show on Bainbridge Island has enjoyed great success and we enjoy meeting the artists and discussing their work in person. We hope you were also able to attend; however, if you missed it, there will be another show in August 2019.

Deborah Rhee is an Australian born artist whose art consists of working with layers of oil paint and glaze. Her paintings are a journey in color frequency, layering the color until a harmonious frequency is realized.

Dinah Satterwhite, a fine art photographer and photographic teacher, has been directing the Studio Tour for the past 10 years, while being an artist participant for over 20 years.


Winter Wonderland

PSE is a proud sponsor of Bainbridge Island's Annual Winter Wonderland Tree Lighting event this past weekend. We provided energy efficiency information to attendees – a great way to lower your energy bill in the winter months.
