Saturday February 12th will mark Seattle’s 17th annual celebration of Neighbor Appreciation Day. According to www.Seattle.gov, it began in 1995 when Phinney Ridge activist Judith Wood suggested that the City designate “a special day to celebrate the goodness in those around us and to reach out and strengthen our bonds to each other.” From there Mayor Norm Rice proclaimed the Saturday before Valentines Day as Neighbor Appreciation Day!
