Neighbor Appreciation Day

Join your neighbors to celebrate Madrona’s Neighbor Appreciation Day on Feb. 6.  Festivities start when we gather at 9:30am at the Madrona PK-8 School library. Ceremonies begin promptly at 10:00, and usually conclude by 11:00am.  Awards include:

  1. The Nora Award: Named in honor of Madrona activist Nora Wood, this award is given to a Madrona resident who, over time and in ways both large and small, has left a personal mark on the community.
  2. The Local Hero Award: Given to a Madrona resident for an act of heroism, singular kindness or generosity.
  3. The Tyrone Love Unsung Hero Award: Given to a Madrona resident for service to others in the larger community.  Named after community and youth activist and mentor Tyrone Love who dedicated much of his life to the youth of the community.
  4. The Madrona Resident for Life Award: Bestowed upon a long-time, active resident who has left Madrona but remains dearly missed.

In addition to awards made by the Madrona Community Council, we also enjoy the opportunity to meet award-winners from Madrona K-8 School.  Come meet your neighbors, and enjoy their accomplishments.  And be there to meet all the young people whose efforts to build community contribute benefit all.
