Windermere Community Service Day

By
Real Estate Agent with Fathom Realty West Sound WA State 52404

 Each year the three offices of Windermere Real Estate/West Sound, Inc., located in Silverdale, Bremerton, and Poulsbo, Washington participates in the Windermere Community Service Day.

Every year since 1984, Windermere real estate offices have skipped work for a day to complete neighborhood improvement projects, giving back to the communities where we live, work, and play. We clean, landscape and repair parks, playgrounds, schools, shelters and community buildings. Each office selects a project that best serves its community needs

This year I was a member of our Service Day Committee. Representatives from all three offices met well in advance of the event to identify our project site; determine the various tasks to be completed; and the materials that would be needed, typically donated by area businesses.

Our project for 2006 was Ross Field in Silverdale. This multi-use recreational field sees a lot of action throughout the year, hosting local Little League Baseball, Pee Wee Football, and other local youth sporting events. As a father of 4, my family and I have spent a lot of time at Ross Field and we recognize the value of having good sports facilities.

Our primary tasks were: primer and paint 8 baseball dugouts; replace the roof on a storage building; repair & paint 8 sets of bleachers; install 150 ft. of galvanized fencing; extensive weeding and laying down beauty bark.

Several of our local title & escrow companies helped out by offering food and refreshments.

 With over 75 volunteers, including agents, managing brokers, office staff, family members and friends, we started our work at 9AM, taking a short break for lunch, and ending at around 3PM. Afterwards, we all enjoyed a friendly game of softball.

As real estate professionals, our business is rooted in our communities. And an investment in our neighborhoods gives us all a better place to call home.

Hey Maha! That's isn't my son. He belongs to another agent in our office, Jennifer. But you're right, he's a cutie! And a hard worker too!
