If you’ve been through downtown Montlake lately you’ve likely notice something different this holiday season, and no I don’t mean even more traffic than usual. For the very first time, the Montlake businesses have been decorated in a coordinated effort by the Montlake Community Club to help support our local merchants and bring a little more holiday cheer to our neighborhood.
The roof lines and tree trunks in downtown Montlake and the roof of the Montlake Boulevard Market have been adorned with energy efficient white LED lights that were installed by a professional holiday lighting company who will also remove them after the first of the year.
“This is absolutely wonderful, a big thanks to the Montlake Community Club” said one group of holiday shoppers.
The Montlake Community Club would like this to become an annual holiday tradition, something that can be improved each and every year but they need your help to make it happen. If you enjoy the holiday lights, please consider making a donation. Any donation, large or small, is very much needed and appreciated. Donations can be made by clicking on the DONATE button (right side of this page) and donating via credit card, PayPal, or check or by going to the “Donate” section under the “Community Club” menu at the top of this website.
