October 31 – Halloween Jack-O-Lantern Decorating Contest and Gathering

We gathered with neighbors at on the corner of Mason and Laurel to drink hot cider and eat donuts. Folks brought along their pumpkins and we judged them. We met several new neighbors who we welcomed. Thanks for all who participated in this first time trial of doing this event.

We had a fabulous garage sale this year, after many years of hiatus. There were a great variety of offerings, from folks with a single “free” table, to people that really sold alot of goods. The neighborhood was alive and busy for a few hours. Timing was the weekend before student move out, perhaps we’ll try for a sale when our new neighbors are getting settled in. Thanks for everyone that participated, it was fun to see everyone!

Sehome Neighborhood Meeting June 14th at 7PM

We met on a Monday night with guest speaker Chris Comeau, Director of Transportation speaking about the Lincoln/Lakeway Transportation changes, updates on the Samish Way Urban Village (you’ve all seen the new buildings!) and an update on a new food pantry. You can find the zoom link to the recording in the News section of this website! Sorry for all of you that either had trouble with links, or just could not make it!

Easter Egg Hunt in the Historic Neighborhood

Saturday April 3 from 11AM to 1PM

We had a fabulous day of visiting with neighbors, exchanging seeds and plants. Everyone was so creative! Folks set up games on the sidewalk or yard and there were lots of eggs and candies for the kids. Sidewalk chalk, cookies, giant bunny rabbits with their imaginary friends… Thanks so much for everyone that participated! This was our first year and the reception was great, so expect to celebrate spring again with your community next year.
