The city of Kenmore invites residents to its next “For the Love of Kenmore” free community workshop on April 29.

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.

“Love notes” led by the community in years past have included the mural along 73rd Avenue Northeast, painted fire hydrants, Kenmore Air Seaplane Fly-In, block parties and more, according to the release.

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.

Sandwiches will be served at 6:30 p.m. RSVPs are appreciated, but not required. Contact the city at 425-398-8900 or cityhall@kenmorewa.gov for questions, accommodations, translation, or interpretation services.
