Home & Garden Tours 2018


The 2018 Madison Park Home & Garden Tour is set for Sunday, June 3rd, with all proceeds benefiting Mcgilvra Elementary School.
Last year’s tour was a huge success with praise from both tour goers, owners who had their home and/or garden the tour, and the general community. We raised over $10,000 in critical funds for the school and generated a lot goodwill and PR within the neighborhood community.
Do you or a neighbor have an interesting, historical or beautiful home or garden that you would like to nominate for the tour? Contact John Madrid, Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty Managing Broker and McGilvra parent, at john@live206.com or (206) 498-1880 for more information.

Bush School Blood Drive Donation Day 2018

Once again, I would like to invite you to share a special gift, your blood.

Many of you may have received a request from Bloodworks Northwest to donate blood after the tragic Amtrak train derailment on December 19. Bloodworks Northwest delivered blood to all of the hospitals that received the many seriously injured patients, as well as kept up with our local area hospital needs.

If you donated during that special time, a big “Thank You”! For those of you who were unable to donate at that time, here is your opportunity! This is a perfect time for those who are able to donate, to stop by the Bush School Community Room on Friday, January 19th from  8:30 AM – 2:15 PM.

Please call or email Terry Walburn to arrange a convenient time for you to donate, to check on your eligibility, or if you have any questions about the blood drive. Walk-ins are welcome.

You can reach Terry at (206) 322-7978 or by email at terry.walburn@bush.edu.

Thank you for considering this life-giving gift.
