Yesterday, Helpline House collected food for Project Wishbone. Project Wishbone is a Helpline House project that matches the generosity of the Bainbridge Island Community with those in need. Helpline House becomes a store full of Thanksgiving provisions, where local families in need can receive all the ingredients needed for a great Thanksgiving dinner.

This month, some of our amazing neighbors, Meagan and Brad Stockman organized a neighborhood effort called Commodore Cares. Last Saturday the kids handed out flyers in the neighborhood requesting donations for Project Wishbone and yesterday the kids went back around again with wagons and picked up the Thanksgiving food. Overall, the neighborhood collected over 1,300 pounds of food. The best part was, we were not alone, when we dropped off the food, Helpline House was a flurry of activity with numerous island residents unloading cars filled with donations. If you still want to help, Helpline House will soon be gearing up for Project Happy Holidays, where you can donate gifts until December 11th for their Holiday Store.

Everyone is getting chicks. Farm fresh eggs are all the rage. Is it the recession? Is it because fresh eggs are better? Is it because chicks are cute? I suspect for our family, the latter is the reason . . . our kids really want to get chicks. However, you can not put the chick or the egg, for that matter, before the coop. We need to build a coop.

But before we build a coop, we have to finish our deck, which is currently under construction and then build a fence. So, the coop is at least a year away. However, the 1st Annual Tour de Coop, here on Bainbridge last Saturday, the 18th, to benefit Helpline House, proved to be a great way to see eight cool backyard coops in one day. There were a lot of creative ideas that ran the gamut from a mobile mini coop on wheels to a chicken palace folks on the tour were saying they themselves could live in.

At the end of the day we got some great ideas . . . we’ll see how far we get on our coop before the 2nd Annual Tour next year.
