Manette Garage Sale Canceled

The MNC Community Garage Sale originally scheduled for August 15th has been canceled.

Kitsap County remains in Phase 2 with a rising trend of new cases. All Safe Start phase applications have been paused until at least July 16th.

Even if the county were to meet phase 3 requirements by August 15th, logistically the MNC Board would not have enough time to sponsor the garage sale.  

We love this event regret that it cannot happen this year.

Postponing the Manette Edible Garden Tour

The MNC Board would like to share a message from the MEGT Co-Chairs:

As co-chairs of the 2020 Manette Edible Garden Tour, we are concerned that the corona virus pandemic and resulting restrictions on social gatherings, as well as business closures, will make it difficult for us to plan this event.  There is also the possibility that social distancing guidelines may still be in effect as we approach the August 1st date.  As a result, we are recommending that the MNC consider delaying the 2020 Tour until August of 2021.

We are both very much invested in the MEGT and its success and would gladly continue as co-chairs in the event it is postponed.

Wendie and Ellen, MEGT Co-Chairs

The MNC Board agrees with Wendie and Ellen, and have voted to postpone the MEGT to 2021. We will update the community next year with plans the next Edible Garden Tour.

Hill Climb Cleanup 2019

On May 4th, 2019 the MNC board and Manette community members mobilized to clean up Jennifer’s Hill Climb trail. The event was a great success! We had about 15 people over three hours trimming, mowing, and raking the winter’s debris away.

The result is a beautiful Hill Climb memorializing one of the MNC’s founding members. It is an asset to the community and a great space to enjoy our natural splendor. Thank you to everyone who came out!
