Things To Do on Bainbridge Island This Week – January 20-26

We start this week with a day of service across the nation observing and celebrating the life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. While there aren’t any Island events honoring the civil rights icon on Monday, several Island students were involved with the planning committee for Seattle’s big event. There are plenty of other Things To Do on Bainbridge Island later in the week, many of which will delight book and film lovers!
