Current Issue

About this Issue: The IHCA slogan is “maintaining community,” a poetic way of describing how our community is strengthened through property maintenance. Indeed, it is! I bet you burst with pride, as I do, when you re-enter the community after being away on a trip, or even away at work in Seattle or Bellevue. The lush greenery, the well-maintained homes, the active parks — all this fills me with pride for Issaquah Highlands! 

Thank you IHCA! In this issue of Connections, get caught up on all the IHCA’s news. And get better acquainted with the people who work so hard for us, the staff and crew of the IHCA.
