For the Love of Kenmore: April 29th

For the Love Of Kenmore Event 


Is it possible to be in love with your City? Have you ever wanted to do something fun or inspiring for your community but didn't know where to start?

Inspired by community engagement expert Peter Kageyama, Kenmore City Manager Rob Karlinsey will lead this fun and interactive workshop to help you connect with your neighbors and your City. You'll hear from others who turned ideas into real projects that brought people together and created fun and beauty throughout our city. Then, you will have the opportunity to turn your ideas into action!

"Love notes" led by the community in years past have included the mural along 73rd Ave NE, painted fire hydrants, Kenmore Air Seaplane Fly-In, block parties, and more. To learn more about Peter Kageyam and his work, visit

Thank you to everyone who attended the April 29, 2019 Workshop!  Wondering how you can connect with other co-creators?  Contact Rita Moreno,, 425-398-8900.
