Current Issue

August 2018 Connections Highlands Day

This year, Highlands Day celebrates 20 years of people living in Issaquah Highlands. It is a birthday, of sorts. Issaquah Highlands started at Ashland Park and so did the annual community festival. Now Highlands Day is celebrated at Village Green and Blakely Hall.

I hope to celebrate with you 20 years of Issaquah Highlands at Highlands Day, Saturday, August 25 from noon to 4pm!

About the cover: The birthday party theme was rehearsed earlier in the summer with a pop up, flash mob, aerial-photo-shoot at Village Green with neighbors sporting birthday costume. Little Fiona Moffat was having so much fun she just had to lay in the grass to party on. Photo credit: Heather Moffat.
