KCMT, brewery eye Courtesy Ford site By KIPP ROBERTSON and RICHARD D. OXLEY North Kitsap Herald

POULSBO — Two parties are interested in purchasing the former Courtesy Ford property on

Viking Avenue. Depending on who prevails, the site will be the home of a brewery or a children’s theater. The Kitsap Children’s Musical Theater has rehearsed in the former

dealership building since spring. The theater company hopes to make the location its permanent home. KCMT board president Gene Johnson said he is “fairly confident that we’ll

have another year” on the property, to give KCMT time to raise money to purchase the site. Poulsbo’s Sound Brewery, however, has made a purchase offer.

“We have already made an offer on the building and we are now simply waiting for their appraisal,” said Mark Hood of Sound Brewery, currently located

Christmas comes early for long-time volunteer service organization By RICHARD WALKER

KINGSTON — The Kingston Food Bank has a new home. The food bank moved on Nov. 25 to 26102 Illinois Ave., a twostory house next to the Sheriff’s Department — in time to prepare and distribute 60 Thanksgiving dinner boxes.

The move was made possible by a grant from the Pam Foster and Liz Austin Fund, a donor-advised fund managed by the Seattle Foundation. Bill Fulton, husband of food bank director Barb Fulton, said the new location is roomy — he couldn’t say how many square feet the house is, but said “there’s plenty of room.”
