Art and creativity are the soul of a community

   Hooray for the artwork proposal for our city's park along the Sammamish River Trail!

   Art and creativity are our community's soul--its aspirations expressed and made tangible. It's about time that Woodinville shows some concern for the creative side of our town. Without art, life would be pretty drab and dull.

   A small investment in this direction is indeed very wise. Just look at the quality of life in our neighbor, Kirkland, whose downtown area is dotted with many examples of public art. Far better than fixing five or six potholes it is, to give substance to our very dreams.
