Neighbors Enjoy Block Party On Victory Lane

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.
