While not quite the household name that Valentine’s Day is, Seattle’s Neighbor Appreciation Day turns 19 on Saturday, February 9th. It’s billed as, “a special day to reach out to neighbors, create new friends, and express thanks to those who help make your neighborhood a great place to live.” The city encourages residents to plan an activity for our neighborhoods, such as a block party, potluck, or work party. Or you could attend an event such as one of the fire station open houses, park cleanups, or swims around the city. You can even send a Neighbor Appreciation Day e-card to someone with artwork by local students. Or maybe it would just be a good opportunity to knock on your neighbors door and introduce yourself. Victory Heights is a pretty friendly place, so get involved!
