I want to extend my sincere thanks to the residents of N. Harrison Ave for extending an invitation to Liberty in Bellevue for their Wine and Cheese Block party on Saturday. From the minute I arrived I was met with nothing but smiles and kind words. The feelings of pride for your block and sense of community were a shining example of what makes Bellevue so great. We spoke of the neighborhood, the Bellevue of today and of the past and your stories were wonderful. Thank you for sharing your outlook on the direction of the community and the encouragement you provided to our group. I encourage all other blocks in Bellevue to mirror this example of coming together with neighbors to continue the sense of belonging in this great community. Once again, to all residents of N. Harrison; Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all again.
