Meanwhile, are you considering hosting National Night Out for your street/block on August 1st? We’ve got a great program to help you make the most of it, “Rock Your NNO!” It will be on Tuesday, July 11th from 7-8pm at the Victory Heights Preschool. Crime Prevention and Disaster Preparedness Coordinators will be presenting items to discuss with neighbors to make yourselves, and your property, safer. There will be handouts, block maps, and much more! Sponsored by the Victory Heights Community Council.
Victory Heights’ Night Out Block Party was held on August 14th and attracted 30 or so residents and children on Victory Lane for a potluck dinner. It was a nice chance to socialize and get to know everyone, from the family who just moved in this year to the couple who’d live here over 40 years. Ruth Williams, Seattle Tree Ambassador from the Thornton Creek Alliance was handing out flyers, and North District Council representative Susan Causin passed out flyers about emergency preparedness.
Fresh salmon from Pike Place Market was grilled up, and dishes included chicken, lasagna, and an apple pie.
Susan announced the Victory Heights Community Council would have its annual meeting on October 10th, time and place to be determined.
Tonight (August 14th) is the Victory Heights Potluck.
The location will be on Victory Lane NE between NE 105th Street & NE 107th Street. Tables will be set up and neighbors are encouraged to bring a dish to share, something to drink and chairs to sit on.
Look forward to seeing you all there!
