Bazaar aids seniors
Snohomish Senior Center raised more than $1,500 at its fund-raising bazaar on June 5. Eight vendors offered a variety of items, such as knitted scarves, doll clothes, neck wraps and art items.
The center will use the proceeds for its operations and to build a new proposed senior center.
For the second year in a row, Everett has been named a diversity champion.
The Association of Washington Cities presented a diversity award to Everett and 14 other cities at a ceremony June 17 in Ocean Shores.
Everett was cited for community outreach and cultural education efforts, including its Race Equality Day in September.
“We are working every day toward creating an environment that embraces every person in our community no matter the race, gender, religion or sexual orientation,” Mayor Ray Stephanson said in a statement.
“I’m committed to making sure we all feel welcome living and working in the city of Everett.”
