Annual Enumclaw Neighbors Night Out was again a success | Letter

Neighbors Night Out – a successful evening across the Plateau where we said hello to our neighbors. Some folks met for the first time.

Neighbors Night Out – a successful evening across the Plateau where we said hello to our neighbors. Some folks met for the first time. Children were able to visit with adults, adding to their comfort level living within a network of homes. Stories were traded and information shared. Some worked on emergency preparedness packets distributed last year. More gatherings registered for NNO this year and each of those were visited by first responders: Fire Districts 28 and 44, Enumclaw Police Department and King County Sheriffs. This year was highlighted by the county helicopter circling over a potluck gathering.

Some events did not register, as one only needs a desire to enhance neighborhood spirit and create a safer and more compassionate community. LINCCK is grateful for those who hosted such events, to the individuals and families attending, and to the first responders. Thanks! Friendly smiles are on the rise and helpful hands are more readily available. It’s all good.

Always on the first Tuesday of August, so plan ahead. Maybe next year you can host the gathering that’s been in your neighborhood or perhaps start a new NNO event. It can be just two neighbors sharing lemonade on the front porch or a big block party with the street closed – you choose. For next year, think flowers.
