December 7, 1998
The reception will be hosted by Mayor Debbie Treen and Interim City Manager Mike Caldwell to recognize and thank the members of the City Council, Planning Commission, Board of Adjustment, Parks Board, Landmark Preservation Board, Shorelines Hearings Board, Library Board, Civil Service Commission, and L.E.O.F.F. I Board for their service to the city.
In addition, the celebration will honor those who volunteered in city departments on a regular basis, as well as groups and individuals who have donated their time and energy assisting the city with projects during 1998.
"The holiday season is traditionally a season for giving thanks," commented Mayor Treen. "Our holiday celebration gives us the opportunity to extend special recognition to the many talented and dedicated people who have devoted their time and energy to the improvement of our city during the past year. These donations have included school groups weeding the flower beds in a park; church members organizing a spring clean-up of the Bothell Pioneer Cemetery; and a group of 22 Cub Scouts from Pack 584, who with their families last July, reclaimed over 7,000 bricks from the old Bothell Landing Amphitheater, and prepare them for re-use when the Amphitheater is rebuilt this coming spring. The dedication and spirit of our volunteers literally saves the City thousands of dollars each year, and inspires us to celebrate their successes."
