NW Neighborhood Clean-up Day

The neighborhood has hosted a clean up for the past 9 years now. As always, MaryVee Westlund was our gamekeeper along with Joni Smith. These ladies greeted neighbors, verified that they lived within the NW Neighborhood borders, and collected donations to off set the costs for dump fees. Usually the fees run upwards of $1500. Thank you neighbors for donating! 

Our additional excellent volunteers included Jeff Hardy, Rich Whitkop, Fran W., Tim Knopf, Kari Quaas & from EvCC, Connie Tune, Lisa Gorman, Amanda Stum, Tony & Barb Campbell. Molly Beeman, Sustainability Manager / Capital Projects from EvCC, coordinated this event again with the NW Neighborhood. Many thanks to all of these folks. Volunteers are really important for this event & we truly appreciate those that have been a part of this event. 

Next time we have a clean up, we could use a few more men to step up from the ‘hood as volunteers.

2018 Northwest Neighborhood Clean Up and Alley Clean Up

The Neighborhood Clean Up was on Saturday, May 19th at EvCC and we filled the bins. Thank you to our volunteers, Molly Beeman and her crew from EvCC, 3R Technology for the electronics recycling, Rubatino, and project lead, Shelley Sutton.

The NWN Alley Clean Up was also held on Saturday, May 19th from 10-12pm. We partnered with Take Back Our Neighborhood – Everett to clean up alleys starting with Broadway and worked west. We had about 15 dedicated volunteers and made a dent in the cigarette butts! Tim and Jackie Knopf even made it onto KCPQ13 News!

Thank you to the following volunteers!
