  • A Word from KC Traffic Safety Task Force
    Most of us believe that we are good drivers. However, traffic data, crash investigations, and other evidence suggest that we could be better drivers. Driving safely is a constant challenge. We’re more than half-way through the fall season and approaching winter -- we need a few reminders of vehicle operations during inclement weather.
    Before leaving home, find out about the driving conditions and prepare your vehicle. Safe drivers know the weather and they know their limits. If the weather is bad, remember, “Ice and snow, take it slow, or just don’t go!”
    Learn more about safe winter driving. Be careful out there!!

    Community Volunteer Award Winner
    Community Volunteer Award Winner Tom Patterson is most deserving! Tom Patterson is a retired BSD Bus driver, formerly drove for SKSD and prior to that he retired from PSNS. Tom has come in faithfully to volunteer at Kitsap Lake Elementary for years. Tom knows the kids and the kids know Mr. Tom.
    Tom is a solid  and beloved member of the whole community not just KLE. It is not uncommon for former students, now adults, that he transported as a bus driver to come in to KLE and seek out Tom to say hi and catch up. I have seen Tom and his wife attend wrestling matches and football games, put on Bar-B-Q’s, scoop ice cream and a multitude of other activities in support of BREMERTON kids. He was even recruited by BSD nursing staff to assist in an all-district vision and hearing screening. Tom is a recipient of multiple Presidential Volunteer Service Awards including Gold and Silver pins based on hundreds of hours of volunteer service. Tom also is the owner of a PTSA Golden Acorn. I am pleased to say that Tom is also my friend. This  Community Volunteer Award could not have been given to a more deserving or caring person.
