Tomorrow Annual Neighbor Appreciation Day And Fire Station Open House

Neighbor Day Fire Station Open Houses

Tomorrow is the Annual Neighbor Appreciation Day sponsored by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

The City website says:

We invite all Seattle residents to celebrate Neighbor Day by indulging in random acts of kindness. It is a special day set aside to reach out to neighbors, make new friends, and express thanks to those who help make your neighborhood a great place to live.

The Department of Neighborhoods has posted a list of participation ideas, as well as ideas for local businesses or community groups. 

Some ideas include doing something nice for a neighbor, organizing a neighborhood potluck, open house, or work party, joining in a neighborhood service project to clean up a park, plant trees, organizing a neighborhood cleanup, holding a bake sale for charity or to raise money for a neighborhood project, sharing a “great neighbor” story with #NeighborDay.

To celebrate the occasion, Seattle Fire Stations will be open to the public from 11– 1pm. 

Residents can stop by their neighborhood fire station to meet firefighters, tour the station and learn about firefighting equipment.

Station 38 (4004 NE 55th Street), serving Laurelhurst, and surrounding neighborhoods, will be open and welcoming visitors. 

A neighbor said "It's a great chance to stop by for a visit and a chance to meet the firefighters in your neighborhood."

"Visitors should be aware that firefighters may need to respond to an emergency and close the station to visitors during that time. Firefighters will return after the alarm and re-open the station," the website says.
