Historic Everett Annual Membership Meeting

The Boeing 747’s First Flight

Sunday, February 24 at 2:00pm
Everett Public Library Auditorium, 2702 Hoyt Ave

The Boeing 747, an airplane known as “The City of Everett”,  took flight on February 9, 1969 from our very own Snohomish County Airport, Paine Field. This successful jumbo jet is celebrating its 50th anniversary and to commemorate that event in Everett’s history, educator and author, Steve K. Bertrand will tell the story of how the notion to develop a 747 emerged, the race to build it against numerous challenges, its maiden flight, & the 747’s subsequent impact on commercial aviation today.  Join us to learn more about 2019 events and activities. Renew your membership. Enjoy refreshments. Free for members, $5 donation for guests.

Lowell School: Heart Bomb

Friday, March 1 at 3:00pm
3715 Oakes Avenue, Everett WA

The Everett School District is taking steps toward hiring a salvage contractor to begin the demolition process at the Longfellow School. Now is the time to show how much you care about the school and make a statement. Historic Everett is organizing a “heartbomb” event for the school on Valentine’s Day. Similar to a flash mob, we will be posting giant hearts and love notes on the building. Bring Balloons, hearts or any act of ‘love’ for this historic building! The school is at located at 3715 Oakes Ave., meet at high noon on Thursday 2/14. Please be on time.

You can either make your own signs, letters and hearts and bring them with you, or you can come to the Historic Everett’s meeting room on Thursday 2/28 at 6:00 p.m. where we will have paper and markers for you to use and refreshments will be served. The address is 2112 Rucker, #8. Please walk around the building to the left.

***What’s a Heart Bomb?!***
A heart bomb is a public display of affection for places that matter. Every February, people across the country gather at historic sites and local landmarks (both safe and threatened!) to snap a photo with their valentines. Sharing the photos on social media raises awareness of these special places and why they matter to their local communities. Share your own photos using #heartbombSEA and #IHeartSavingPlaces.
