2017 Carlyon North Sale Map

2017 Governor Stevens Sale Map

The annual Carlyon/North Neighborhood Association Yard Sales Day is set for Saturday, July 29th from 8am – 3pm! The summer neighborhood party will follow in the early evening at Angle Park.

Yard Sale TableAs in past years, each participant will host their own yard sale, and we encourage you to have your own signs. But, we will advertise locally about the event in The Olympian and on social media, have signs directing people to the neighborhood, and distribute a map of yard sales in the neighborhood.

Our neighboring Governor Stevens neighborhood (north side of Carlyon Avenue) will also be participating, so a great day to sell or find your treasures!

We look forward to seeing everyone out at the sales and party!

Candidate Forum – Council Responses & Thank You

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Candidate Forum on Thursday, October 15th at South Sound Manor! We had over 50 people in attendance from all of our participating neighborhoods. We heard from our Olympia City Council and Port IMG_4795Commission candidates on our panels, as well as from Olympia School Board candidates and Olympia Parks Prop 1 representatives.

A special thanks to our sponsoring neighborhood associations: Cain Road, Governor Stevens, South Capitol, and Wildwood, to our moderators Meghan Sullivan and Pam Folsom, to South Sound Manor for their generous support, and to our many other volunteers.

As those who attended are aware, we needed to cut short our Olympia City Council panel after a medical emergency for an audience member (last report – thankfully on the mend). As a result, we offered candidates the opportunity to respond in writing to remaining questions. Below are links (PDF) to responses for each candidate:

City Council Position #1 (Mayor):

Neighborhood Party – Sat. July 11th, 5-8pm @Angle Park!

Gather with your neighbors and have a great time! This year’s neighborhood summer party will be Saturday, July 11 from 5 – 8 PM. Join us for live music, free food, door prizes, and lots of neighborhood fun!

For several years we’ve hosted this gathering on Mountain View, but this year we’re moving to Angle Park, which is the grassy triangle between Sunset Way, Fairfield Road and Vista Ave., just east of the Sunset Buildings on Capitol Boulevard. This move gives us grass and shade, brings us to the other end of our ‘hood, and makes use of our only park.music pic utensils pic

We will also have door prizes from local businesses including Uncork & Unwind and Olympia Coffee Roasters!

View.
