City plans ‘Welcome to Sammamish’ bash for Klahanie-area residents

NEW — 6 a.m. Sept. 3, 2015

The official annexation of Klahanie and adjacent neighborhoods won’t become official until Jan. 1, but the city isn’t going to wait until then to say “Welcome.”

Instead, the city will issue the greeting from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 12 at a “Welcome to Sammamish” event.

The celebration, which will feature live music, bouncy toys for the kids, and food trucks of all types, will be held at Klahanie Park (next to Challenger Elementary School).

‘You Matter’ is message of local teens supporting National Suicide Prevention Day

NEW — 6 a.m. Sept. 2, 2015

According to the Washington State Department of Health, between two and three youths ages 15-24 commit suicide every week in Washington state.

“The last three years have been some of the hardest years of my ministry when we saw several young people take their lives,” Nick Pringle, pastor of student ministries at Pine Lake Covenant Church for nearly 10 years, says in a Facebook video. “Each year in America, there are over 1 million attempts of suicide, and that’s too many.”

For the second year, teens from Issaquah and Sammamish will join the national movement for National Suicide Prevention Day on Sept. 10 and wear “You Matter” T-shirts to school that day.
