At Home in Keyport
To support Keyport residents, we’ve created a Medical Equipment Library with donated equipment that can be checked out at no cost. Crutches, wheelchairs, walkers, and other supplies are available. We also have a referral list of neighbor-recommended contractors and other service providers. To access either, call Rosie Watne at 541.660.7533.
Voting is made easy by an official Kitsap County ballot box located in Central Park.
Currently the group meets outdoors at someone’s home on the first Monday of each month at 5:00. Contact Jan Kohler 360.621.9341 for more information.
