The 19th Annual Neighbor Appreciation Day is on Saturday, Feb. 9. It’s a day to celebrate all our great neighbors and communities. As part of the festivities, nearly two dozen fire stations will open their doors to the community from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. so people can take a tour and get to know their firefighters better.
Besides Station 21 at 7304 Greenwood Ave. N., nearby stations celebrating that day include Green Lake Fire Station 16, 6846 Oswego Place NE; Ballard Fire Station 18, 1521 NW Market St.; Bitter Lake Fire Station 24, 401 N 130th St.; and Crown Hill Fire Station 35, 8729 15th Ave. NW.
The city’s Neighbor Appreciation Day website allows you to send an e-card to neighbors, tell a story about your favorite neighbor or what makes your neighborhood special, ideas for how to celebrate the day, and an events calendar for the day.
By the way, Neighbor Appreciation Day was first suggested to the city in 1995 by Phinney Ridge resident Judith Wood. Thanks, Judith!
