April Meeting Summary

Thank you to our guests, Barbara George from the Everett Museum of History, and Timothy Knopf from Northwest Neighborhood’s Steering Committee who provided a bit of history of our association. Due to popular demand, as Tim continues his research, we’ll try to plug in “Tim’s Time” for future 15 minute installments of Northwest history. We had about 43 members in attendance. Minutes to come later.

We also elected officers – Kari Quaas, Chair; Kristina Perry, Secretary; Russ Kasselman, Treasurer; GeorgaDee MacLeod and Stephanie Prothero, Council of Neighborhood Reps, and John Sweeney as Alternate.

Easter Egg Hunt A Fun Time For All Ages

The weather played along and at least 200 children came out with their parents for the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Darling bunnies, including a large one, and lots of cute kids had a great time collecting eggs and prizes.

Thanks go to Shelley Sutton, Holly James, Vicky Marler and her Girl Scout Troop, for all of the efforts to make it happen. Also, thanks to the City of Everett Matching Grant Fund for helping us support this annual event. And, thanks to our neighbors who donate to the association. All of everyone’s time, talent and treasure make this possible!

There are so many photos from the day that Kari Quaas, Chair / Photographer, posted them onto her Flickr page. You can view the photos here –

Meeting with Mayor Cassie Franklin Was Terrific!

Thank you for so many people who turned out for the meeting with our new mayor Cassie Franklin. Like I shared at the meeting, a good meeting for us is around 20-25 people.
