The Olympic Music Festival, Summer 2017

The Olympic Music Festival will have its summer week-end concerts August 12 through September 10.  It is now being held in the Wheeler Theater at Fort Worden in Port Townsend. 

Safeco Honors Thornburgh

Thornburgh Insurance Agency has been selected for membership in the Safeco Premier Partner Program, which recognizes the outstanding achievement and partnership of only the best agencies. This is the second time, as once before in 2013, Thornburgh received this award.

The Olympic Music Festival

The Olympic Music Festival is coming soon. The first weekend of “Concerts in the Barn” begins June 27th and 28th. Do you have out of town visitors coming this summer? This is the perfect venue for a picnic on the lovely grounds prior to the concert and hear incredible music in the barn.


When my Dad began Thornburgh Insurance Agency in 1980, I was 10 years old and had little interest in insurance. It was not until after my Dad passed away two years ago, October 29, 2012, that I began to understand, and appreciate the importance of community as my Dad had taught me by example over the years.

Visit the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art

Give yourself a treat. Take time to spend awhile at the new treasure on Bainbridge Island, the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA). The art is delightful, whether on permanent exhibition or a rotating display, and admission is free.

Helpline House “Project Happy Birthday” Program

When I was seeking greater community involvement and a way to give back to my hometown, my Mom suggested a program created by the Bainbridge Island Helpline House called “Project Happy Birthday”. This was a perfect idea!

The Olympic Music Festival

Less than an hour away from Bainbridge is a summer destination for anyone interested in a musical experience in a rural, farm and garden setting. The Olympic Music Festival is a MUST for anyone in Kitsap County who appreciates classical musical talent and a welcoming northwest atmosphere.

Helpline House Needs You

Summertime is a slow time for the Helpline House Food Bank donations. That is true of all food banks. The need is great here on Bainbridge Island, and food or financial donations are always welcome. In 2012 almost $80,000 was spent on food purchases to fill the shelves.
