At the October meeting of the Victory Heights Community Council, we have teamed up with Pinehurst for a Halloween activity for your kids and pets: The Puppyhurst Doggo and Kids’ Parade.
Starting at at 11 AM on Sunday, October 31st at the Pinehurst Pocket Park, 11700 19th Ave NE, this kid (and pet) friendly event will then proceed east to 20th Avenue NE, head north to NE 123rd, then back down 22nd Avenue NE , west on NE 115th, and then back north on 20th to the Pocket Park. There will be a costume contest (for pets too), masks required, keep pets on leashes, and socially distance for safety.
Afterwards, Zylberschtein’s Deli at 11752 15th Avenue NE, will have a party between 1 PM and 3, with pumpkin carving, fresh cider, donuts, and beer specials.
As for trick-or-treating, a recent Victory Heights Facebook poll showed people were overwhelmingly in favor of it, 47 to 2, with the idea to “distribute with distance.”
In other Community Council news, we heard about the history of Sustainable North Seattle, made suggestions to District 5 Debora Juarez’s office for next year’s budget (good news: traffic calming is in this year), there will be an open house on Saturday, October 23rd at the Victory Heights Preschool (the building in the park) from 2 PM – 4 with treats, and the next Victory Heights contribution to the Teen Feed will be November 8th.
The Green Seattle Partnership is gearing up for volunteer work parties in our green belts around Thornton Creek. Sign up for the one on November 18th: https://seattle.greencitypartnerships.org/event/20150/
The next (virtual) meeting of the Community Council, is Tuesday, November 16th with guest Dean Allsopp, Debora Juarez’s District Director.
