Ballard neighbors create an extended family

Check out this great article in today’s Seattle Times! As the founder of Neighbor Appreciation Day 17 years ago, I am delighted to read this kind of “news." Long-time PNA business member and Home Fair exhibitor, Michael Vacirca of LastingNest construction, is featured along with his neighbors. They and their children have created a micro-community centered around Salmon Bay Park. Read the story for more about their neighborliness and some of the great ideas other Ballard folks have for creating lasting connections with the folks close by. Neighbor Appreciation Day is Saturday, February 12. What will you do to get to know your neighbors, lend a helping hand, or express your thanks to the people who share your little corner of Seattle?
