Holiday Greenery – FHNA fundraiser December 5 – 6

Kathy Fries, chatelaine of the Champagne Creek Gardens, is offering cuttings from her evergreen trees and shrubs that you can use to spruce up your home (literally) for the holidays. They’ll be available for pickup at the cul de sac of Champagne Point Place from 10am to 3pm Saturday, December 5, and Sunday, December 6, as shown in the following map.

Stop by and serve yourself, but please make a donation to FHNA for each bouquet of greens that you pick up. We recommend $5/bouquet – but we’ll happily take more. If you donate to FHNA for Giving Tuesday, no extra contribution is expected: we thank you for your generosity! And we thank Kathy Fries for offering these bouquets for the benefit of FHNA.

So, channel your inner Martha Stewart, brighten your house for the holidays, and help out FHNA all at once. Questions? Click here.

Finn Hill Safety Program – vote for your favorite project by December 4

The Neighborhood Safety Program (NSP) gives Kirkland residents opportunities to identify needed improvements in each neighborhood to increase pedestrian and bicycle safety.  We presented information about NSP at our neighborhood online meeting on 9/23 and asked for community feedback on needed safety improvements.  That along with feedback from the extensive Safer Routes to School initiative has provided us with 3 priority projects.  

Want to know what those 3 projects are?
We are exploring adding a rapid flashing beacon to one of the crosswalks below.  If you are unsure of what a rapid flashing beacon is, watch this short demonstration video.
