Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the workshop running from 7-9 p.m., at Kenmore City Hall, 2701, 18120 68th Ave. NE.

Inspired by community engagement expert Peter Kageyama, Kenmore city manager Rob Karlinsey will lead this interactive workshop to help residents connect with their neighbors and city, according to a city press release. Attendees will hear from others who turned ideas into real projects that brought people together. Attendees will then have the opportunity to turn their ideas into action.

Before the event, attendees are encouraged to send in photos. These photos should showcase, in just three photographs, what they love about Kenmore.

Photos can be emailed to cityhall@kenmorewa.gov by April 24. Workshop attendees will vote on a winning photo. The winner will receive a prize, but must be present to win and photos must be taken by the winner By entering, photographers grant the city of Kenmore permission to use their photo in perpetuity in any medium, according to the release.
