Wow, what a summer! I have heard so many people comment on the truly beautiful summer we had this year. Who could argue? As the leaves turn and we move into fall we are finishing many of our projects in Edmonds which are dependent on good weather. Projects, coupled with working to finish the 2015 Budget, are keeping all of us very busy.
We are just a couple of of weeks away from a series of important dates for all of us to focus on; Halloween, Veteran's Day and Election Day. Over the past 25 years Halloween has become a great celebration in downtown. Merchants giving treats to kids, great costumes worn by all (including a growing number of adults) and just a great opportunity for us to come together as a community.
November 4th is Election Day. Edmonds usually hs one of the highest voter turnout in the County. I hope we maintain the tradition. This year we have important Congressional and Legislative decisions to make along with several initiatives which will impact policies for the state. Regardless of who or what you vote for, please do vote.Veteran's Day is November 11th and there are two events you should be aware of; at 11 a.m. in downtown Edmonds there will be a Veterans Day observance at the future Edmonds Veterans Plaza and then in the evening Operation Military Family will hold their National Gala Event at the Lynnwood Convention Center. You can read more about the Edmonds' Veterans Day observance here. No matter what you do on Veterans Day, we should all take time to pause and give thanks to those who have served our country.
Enjoy the Fall.
