Dear NW Neighbors, your annual donations help us host neighborhood events for all to enjoy:

Easter Egg Hunt – The Northwest Neighborhood and Girl Scouts Troop __ host an annual Easter Egg Hunt for families in the neighborhood. The event takes place on the Saturday preceding Easter and includes an egg hunt. Over 200 children and their parents participate each year. This year’s event was held at Drew Nielsen Park on Saturday, March 31, 2018. Photos from this year’s event. 

Neighborhood Clean-up – The Northwest Neighborhood hosts a clean-up opportunity each spring. This is an opportunity for residents to get garbage and junk out of your yards so that the neighborhood can maintain its attractive qualities. Dumpsters and recycling are provided at an accessible location in the neighborhood. No furniture, large pieces of wood, concrete or rocks. The clean up took place on Saturday, May 19, 2018. This year, we accompanied the clean-up with an Alley Clean-Up in partnership with Take Back Our Neighborhoods – Everett. Photos from this year’s event. 

National Night Out – National Night Out is a major event in our nation. The event provides a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors, the police, firemen, and other city representatives that come to visit our event. Please let the City of Everett know if you have an event planned. We do highly suggest Delta Neighborhood’s event or the one put on by NW neighbors at Port Gardner Bay Winery downtown. For us, our focus in early August goes to….

Mother of All Garage Sales (M.O.A.G.S.) – If there’s one thing we know how to do in Everett it’s how to have terrific garage sales! Not only is this a chance for garage sale participants to sell their excess wares, but it’s a fundraiser for the neighborhood. It’s head annually on the first Saturday in August. More MOAGs Info.

THANK YOU to our 2018 MOAGS sponsors Lamoureux Real Estate, Ashley Bolden, KW Everett, Scuttlebutt Brewing Company, Brews Almighty, Port Gardner Bay Winery, and Structural Design Associates.

Fall Chili Cook Off – The chili cook off is a chance show off your special chili recipe.  All ages welcome, music, games, social time, and a Chili Cook Off!  Take some time to meet your neighbors and have some family fun at the park. Contestants must provide one crock pot of chili and register. This event will not be happening in 2018. Instead, join us at the Drew Nielsen Park Clean Up.

Drew Nielsen Park Clean-Up – The Northwest Neighborhood hosts a clean-up opportunity each year at Drew Nielsen Park at 1230 Colby.  This took place in September. We clean up, prune, and plant. Still to come, we’ll be installing a bike rack. 

Halloween Decorating Contest – Our secret judges have voted and the winners are…… 2018 Winners. Categories include Best Daytime, Best Nighttime and Best Overall. We also included a few honorable mentions. We couldn’t help ourselves. 🙂

Holiday Decorating Contest – 

Annual Holiday Party – In place of the December meeting, the Northwest Neighborhood plans a social function in a more relaxed atmosphere. We encourage neighbors to get to know one another at this lively event. Join us at Legion Golf Course – Greenside Grill on Saturday, December 1, 2018. It’s an open house style from 5-9pm. Food will be served from 6-8pm. We raise money and ask for donations for Christmas House and Volunteers of America. Also, please bring cookies or dessert to share!
