THANKS ALL!! Merry Christmas!
First off, thank you to so many neighbors who utilized their time and talents to make Northwest Everett festive this Halloween season. The secret judges cruised the streets, and got weird looks from dogs, but they managed to come up with 6 winners – 3 originally posted and 3 honorable mentions.

Thanks to Jeff and Jennifer for the full tour on our cruise. This is a house worth visiting prior to Halloween or if you have kids, on Halloween. They’ve pulled out all of the stops!
We’re grateful for a community of people who participate and help make Everett more friendly and comfortable (and scary!)
(Look for the signs in their yards! The prizes will be delivered to each house by next week. Cheers!)
And, for safety sake, here are some Halloween safety tips from the City of Everett.

**Be aware of potential thefts and prowlers on your property.
Don’t leave windows and doors open while unattended. Keep window and door screens secured.
**Don’t leave any valuables in your vehicles!!!
Lock your car. Hide things before you get to your destination — don’t put your valuables in the trunk after you park (thieves watch for this).
**EPD sells “The Club” at cost (under $20), or check with your insurance agent.
There were some great comments regarding those who currently use this item and it has prevented cars from being stolen.
**Have your neighbors keep an eye out when you are gone.
**See something suspicious, call 911!!!
Providing a detailed description is the best — the color of their jacket is probably not enough.
You can’t be an anonymous caller.
**Community Crime Map is online: http://communitycrimemap.com/
Type in your address and the map will show what kind of crime has been reported in the immediate area.
The session was followed by an informative Q&A session. Other people offered tips such as the use of the Ring doorbell system.
The Everett Police Department provides additional resources about these topics:
We had a great turnout at last month’s neighborhood meeting. It was election time and a number of our neighbors stepped up and accepted officer positions on our Steering Committee:
Chair: Kari Quaas
Treasurer: Russ Kasselman
Secretary: Kristina Perry
Council of Neighborhood Reps: GeorgaDee MacLeod, Stephanie Prothero
Other members of the Steering Committee are Shelley Weyer, Holly Gibson, Jackie Knopf, Tim Knopf, JT Dray, MaryVee Westlund, and Joni Smith.
The people on our Steering Committee help to arrange neighborhood meetings, oversee neighborhood events and projects, manage our budget (did you know that we receive mini-grants from the City each year?), and liaison with Everett’s Office of Neighborhoods. Anybody who lives in the neighborhood is welcome to attend our Steering Committee meetings — dates and locations are announced at the monthly Northwest Neighborhood Meeting & Social Hour.
By the way, if you’d like to jump right in just like Kari, the Vice Chair position is still open.
