My life orbits South Snohomish County, especially Lynnwood. This is where we settled at 10, where I graduated high-school, and now where I raise my son. Several decades of my life right here. I get out, we do “things”, and yet there always remains some place new. So many places, nearby, where my feet have not ventured. For instance, I’ve yet to do more than sail through the San Juans. I’ve never been off the ferry. Never! Perplexes many friends.

With so many opportunities in my proverbial backyard, my interest and fascination with this area grows. Thus, I continue my explorations. And with a new addition. I want to experience some place new, some place I’ve never been before. Whether a new town, new site, new restaurant, new park; I want to make a deliberate choice to seek out new stuff and do new things. Not to discount the stuff I already love, but to add a deeper richness to my knowledge of the area.

Some random ideas: a day trip to the San Juans (actually getting off the ferry), the parks on Whidbey, hikes in the Cascades, and (my favorite) and tour of local burger places (like Dicks, Win’s in Bellingham, Ray’s in Everett, Burger Mill in Marysville, etc…).

Yummy, yummy garlic! I’m bummed I’ve already missed a weekend of this.

The crisp air of fall returns and so does Lombardi’s Garlic Fest!  After a 5 year hiatus, Lombardi’s Garlic Festival is back, from September 26th to October 13th!

We’ve created a special menu featuring the “Stinking Rose,” in appetizers, entrees, and desserts; crafted garlic infused cocktails, and cooked up a host of special events to celebrate “the love of the bulb.”  And of course it wouldn’t be Garlic Fest without the “Guess how many garlics” contest.

Favorites from our Garlic Festival menu include; Baked Gilroy Garlic with crispy Italian bread, 40 Clove Roasted Chicken, Pasta Nera, with garlic tiger prawns & black linguine, and our ever popular Cappuccino Brownie. Absolutely Heavenly!

at Comcast Arena, 2000 Hewitt Ave, Downtown Everett, WA
To register for Bubble Run go to http://www.bubblerun.com/events/seattle/.

Bubble Run is excited to announce that it will be a part of Comcast Arena at Everett’s 10th anniversary celebration on September 21st.  Bubble Run is a family friendly 5k fun run, during which participants pass through walls of colored foam at each kilometer along the course.  Averaging about 3,000 participants, the event is open to all ages and abilities and is a unique way to encourage healthy physical activity.

“So much fun! I’m so glad that I picked this one as my first 5k; it got me hooked!” said one runner in Irvine, California.  Bubble Run is focused more on fun and accessibility rather than finish times.  “We wanted to create an event that was like nothing anyone had seen before, as well as an atmosphere that feels welcoming rather than exclusive,” said Bubble Run’s owner, Brogg Sterrett.

The Everett Bubble Run will also benefit the Providence Children’s Center through a limited partnership with the Providence General Foundation.  Everett’s Providence Children’s Center is one of the largest neurodevelopmental centers in the state of Washington, serving more than 350 children and families every week.

AND, the Comcast Arena is turning ten! 

To celebrate this milestone, Global Spectrum, management for the Comcast Arena at Everett, is throwing a 10th Anniversary Block Party and everyone is invited!

For just the third time in the building’s history, Hewitt Avenue will be closed off to accommodate the day’s festivities.  The celebration begins with the Bubble Run 5K at 9 am with an anticipated attendance of 4,000 participants. After the race, the party begins!

From 11 am to 5 pm, guests can expect great music from local bands, delicious food and beverages from food truck vendors, and interactive games the whole family can enjoy. The night continues when the Everett Silvertips take to the ice at 7 pm for their season opener vs. Prince George.

The Block Party is one of the first events slated for the upcoming year that will celebrate the building’s 10th Anniversary.

Interested vendors should call 425.322.2626 for further information.

The activities are the result of an exciting collaboration with Experience Everett and the Snohomish County Tourism Bureau, both of which are encouraging out-of-town attendees to stay the night to fully enjoy the celebration, as well as the city’s many attractions.

NW Neighborhood Meeting
September 19, 2013
6:30 – 6:45 Meet and Greet
6:45 – 7:00 Sgt. Bosman/ Police Report
7:00– 8:00 Philip Martin – Compassion 2 One
Philip will educate us on Sex Trafficking in our area and the Puget Sound.
How to be aware, how to help!

Message from NW Neighborhood Chair Shelley Weyer:

How did I choose Philip Martin from Compassion 2 One to come and speak at our meeting?  Last April, I heard a story on KIRO newsradio about a 15 year old that was sold for sex right here in our backyard.  Your eyes will be opened when you read this article that is available online from www.MYNorthwest.com

This is the link: http://mynorthwest.com/646/2249364/Child-sex-trafficking–as-easy-in-Seattle-as-ordering-a-pizza

This story moved me to have this person come and share with our community about this horrible reality in our area.  Children as young as 12 years old are working as sex slaves in King County, the article reports, but I am guessing Snohomish County has some of the same statistics.

The 15 year old was from a typical suburban home, played high school soccer and was a violinist.  The 15 year old disappeared for 10 days and her father drove the streets of Seattle looking for their little girl.  Around 2 weeks later the police had found the runaway daughter looking completely different than when they had last seen her.

The most shocking part of the story; she had been held captive here in Everett.  She had been raped and forced to work the streets.  Please read the article to find out more about what could happen to one of our families if we do not educate ourselves and come and hear Philip Martin from Compassion 2 One.

It was great to read Developer breaks ground on new Everett farmers market in the Everett Herald. This project will change Snohomish county’s farming culture, deepening a connection with local farmers and provide year ’round access to their wares. As a farmers market fan, this is magnificent news.

One thing I’ve become fond of: Vietnamese sandwiches. Now, not every pho place carries them. I’m pleased to have found Pho on Broadway, just south of 19th on Broadway in Everett. I hadn’t been successful locating a place this far north, so this is a bit of a gem for me.

Anyway, give them a try.

Cheer!
