I moved my family from Shoreline 7 years ago to Kenmore even though Shoreline was a wonderful place. I had heard great things about the schools here and the sense of community because of the size of the city, which at that time was only 3 years old. I have not been . It feels really wonderful here most all the time. I will be blogging about this town and why it feels so wonderful to me as often as I get a chance, time being the way it is. This week, in the Kenmore Reporter there was an article that confirmed that I was not alone in feeling that this was such a great place.
The magazine, Family Circle, apparently looked at cities across the country using the criteria of affordable housing, good neighborhoods, green spaces, and A+ public schools. they chose Kenmore as one of the 10 best towns and cities in the whole US for families!! In fact, there was only one other town west of the rocky Mountains that made the cut! To read the full article go to www.kenmorereporter.com.
I have to go now, but as I said, I will attempting to tell you as much about this great place as time affords. One thing that I have to mention right away is the Kenmore Concert series Thursday nights from 6-8pm at St Edward State Park. Come join my family, and hundreds of others for this free concert in the park every week. There is some food available, but most families pack a lunch, throw down a blanket, and have a picnic as they listen to music and visit with family and friends. On July 23 we get to hear the Yogoman Burning Band, Positive & vibrant dance music. For more information and a complete summer schedule visit www.cityofkenmore.com/events.
