Special Thanks To Two Local Businesses

Red Mill Burgers

In celebration of their 15th anniversary on Phinney Ridge, Red Mill is donating 15% of their profits for 15 days (January 15 – 30) to the Phinney Neighborhood Association, the Greenwood Senior Center and the Greenwood Food Bank. They are also selling commemorative T-shirts, designed by employees, for $15 each. Profits from the T-shirts will also be donated.

The Ballard branch of HomeStreet Bank recently awarded their Great Neighbor, Great Business award to the Phinney Neighborhood Association, Cancer Lifeline and Sip and Ship. The awards were presented at a special reception at the bank in late January. Branch manager Maggie McKelvey noted that “The businesses were selected based on community partnership, being a great employer, and providing an exceptional customer environment.”

Inspiration At The Home Fair

The PNA is hosting its 13th annual home design and remodel fair on January 31, 2010. The event runs from 10am-4pm in the Blue Building of the Phinney Neighborhood Center (6532 Phinney Ave N).

The fair will feature 95 exhibitors, presentations, door prizes, and consultations by City of Seattle permit specialists. A strong emphasis will be placed on green building, green remodeling, and sustainable living.

If you're in the early stages of dreaming and scheming, you'll find plenty of inspiration talking to architects and contractors and looking at photos of completed projects. If you're at a more concrete phase of project planning, you can meet builders and suppliers who could take you to completion.

Consult with City of Seattle permit specialists to get a full understanding of your project needs. Not ready to tackle the house? Spend time with some landscape professionals for ideas on how to spruce up the exterior.

Conservation organizations, home energy auditors, earthquake retrofitters, consultants and trades people will provide information to help you save money and resources and increase the safety and comfort of your home.

Several short presentations will be given that day as well. Click here for a full presentation schedule.
