Dear Neighbors,

We are pleased to let you know that the summer edition of Bainbridge Island magazine is now available online. Hopefully, these stories will provide a diversion from the anxiety we are all feeling.

Bainbridge Island Magazine, Summer 2020 Issue

Why are you reading the issue online, rather than in print?

We launched Bainbridge Island magazine in the summer of 2012 to celebrate the many amazing people, beautiful locations, and worthy organizations and businesses we had come to know. In the past eight years, the economy was moving at a normal pace. Today our citizens and local businesses are struggling because of the limitations and shutdowns necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a periodical that promotes local businesses and events through advertising, we recognize that that business model is not going to work for the time being. Thus, our quarterly print magazine has moved to an online format.

On behalf of the staff, we would like to thank all our advertisers who supported our switch to this digital edition and allowed us to publish this issue. We hope to return to a print version as business returns to normal. 

We have three small requests of you:

  1. Please share this issue with your friends, family and neighbors: We can continue in this format only if we can build an online audience for the magazine.
  2. Tell an advertiser that you saw their ad, and thank them for supporting this issue.
  3. After reading the issue, please take a moment to let us know what you think of this online version of the magazine:

Happy summer and stay safe.
