Block Party: who’s going to be there, what’s going on

The response to our “Welcome to Summer” Block Party at the shopping center on Saturday 6/17 has been GREAT! Here’s what you can expect:

10 a.m. FREE all ages/all fitness levels community workout at Grey Coast CrossFit

11 a.m. FREE BBQ starts at Grey Coast CrossFit; also visit Kumon Learning, All About Hair, and Q Nails for some delicious food & drink

11 a.m.- 2 p.m. Visit tables for crafters, small businesses, community organizations, fundraisers, meet Bellevue city council candidates AND visit the shopping center businesses to enter raffles

NOON: Dog costume contest- dress up your pooch and vie for a prize!

* We are still hoping for a visit from a BFD fire truck but can’t guarantee it will happen.

NON-PERISHABLE FOOD DRIVE:  please help us replenish the food pantry at the Newport Hills Community Church. Summer is a hard time to be hungry, especially for kids, and the church’s food pantry serves our Newport Hills neighbors in need. You can drop your donation at the NHCC Membership table. Thank you for your generosity!
