Kids’ Day a success

Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue thanks the community for supporting and participating in the 23rd Annual Kids’ Day, June 7. This year’s tremendously successful event was a result of collaborative efforts by sponsors, local businesses, community organizations, volunteers and the many kids and families who participated in the interactive day.

Weather didn’t dampen spirits

The Clear Creek Task Force celebrated National Trails Day in a big way. We hosted lots of great activities for kids and joined with other groups to improve our community. It was that special combination of rewarding hard work and fun that made this Trails Day one to remember.
