American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation have selected twenty-five places of historic, cultural and aesthetic significance in the Seattle-Puget Sound area as participants for the 2010 Partners in Preservation initiative.

From April 15 – May 12, 2010, you have the opportunity to cast one vote each day online for the historic places that you care about. At the end of the voting period, the site with the most votes is guaranteed funding from a total of $1 million that American Express will give away to support the preservation of historic places in the Seattle-Puget Sound area.

While the top vote getter is guaranteed a grant, your votes will also help American Express, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and an advisory committee comprised of Seattle-Puget Sound area civic and preservation leaders determine how best to distribute the rest of the $1 million. The voting results, along with each historic place’s preservation and monetary needs, will be considered.

Partners in Preservation encourages you to learn more about the 25 eligible historic places and to vote early and often (once daily) from April 15 – May 12, 2010.

Greater Colman Neighbors of Judkins Park

Members of the CNA (colman neighborhood association) have created an interactive site on YahooGroups. If you live or work in or around Judkins Park check out our group. We are coming together to form walking groups to help make our streets and homes free from invasion and violence. We also hope to have lots of fun getting to know one another.

There are photo galleries of fun stuff as well as a photo album of pictures of “individuals of interest” and or suspects wanted for questioning for related crimes in the neighborhood by the SPD.
