On behalf of the NLMS music students and the music boosters, I would like to thank our community for all their support with our second annual NLMS lasagna dinner fundraiser.
While parents, siblings, grandparents and family friends enjoyed a dinner of lasagna, garlic bread, salad, sweets and coffee and juice, band and choir students from both the sixth and seventh grade classes entertained all. Not only was this event a financial success for the music department, it was a great success for the students who helped and performed, for some, in their first concert type event. We wish them success in their music journey. Along with all the family and parent support, we would like to give our thanks and appreciation to the following companies who graciously donated funds, supplies and door prizes:
Jay’s Market, Wells Fargo Bank, Costco Wholesale, Buzz Inn Steak House, Captain’s Reserve Coffee, Alfy’s Pizza, Tim Noah, The Maltby Café, Duke’s Chowder House, Lakeside Hair, Neapolis Pizza and Pasta, Crosson’s Auto Repair, Robin Henderson Karaoke, McDonald’s, Steve’s Barbershop, Team Fitness, Lake Stevens Mini Mart, Silvana Meats, Main Street Coffee, Nabisco Foods, Highland Elementary, Albertson’s, Safeway, Haggens, and The Lake Stevens Journal.

Fire department thanks Red Cross but community deserves credit
We are eternally thankful for the support and caring continually shown by the many fire department agencies in Snohomish County. Everett Fire Chief Murray Gordon wrote just last week that, “We always welcome the arrival of Red Cross personnel (at the scene of a fire) and thank them very much for being here for us!” Calling the Red Cross at the start of any residential or business fire actually means more than most realize. While firefighters may take only a minute to call us at each fire, their quick phone call saves mom, dad, and kids hours of worry and stress or can provide much-needed midnight coffee for firefighters on the scene. When Red Cross arrives, we’re there to help with transitional shelter, food, clothing and/or support for our first responders. It’s this kind of community support that makes it possible for the Red Cross to continue to help those in need—whether it be a house fire that has destroyed Christmas, a rise in river water that took shelter from a family and left them with only the shoes on their feet (and sometimes not even that), or a family emergency requiring the abrupt return home of a deployed military member. All Red Cross disaster relief is provided free of charge courtesy of the financial support received by your local chapter from the local community. This means you, our community. It’s we at the Red Cross that need to say thank you to you, our community, for your continued and selfless support of those around us.
