It's a bit of a quiet morning in Hillyard today - here are a few highlights from the Historic Merchant Committee Meeting:
The Hillyard Festival really, really needs volunteers. It's the 100 year anniversary of the festival and where many people have great plans, volunteers are needed to carry out the work during the festival. The festival is on Aug. 5 through 7.
As part of the north-south freeway project, a pedestrian bridge will be constructed over the tracks between east and west Hillyard. The Washington State Department of Transportation will construct the bridge, but not maintain the sidewalks during winter - the question remains as to who would do that?
The Chalk Art Walk will be happening again this year. It's a very popular event and businesses are trying to find a uniform way to keep the entry to their stores open (kids paint there, too). Other than that, people are looking forward to it. The Chalk Art Walk is on June 11 and this year it includes a community yard sale.
