3. Bellevue Businesses Support Local Men’s Shelter
Last week, with the generous support of Bellevue businesses, the Bellevue City Council celebrated the expansion of the Congregation for the Homeless winter shelter into a year-round facility. Roughly $750,000 was raised to bring the shelter at Lincoln Center up to code; improvements are scheduled to be completed in November.
In the meantime, a temporary overnight shelter will open
next month at t
he former First Congregational Church on NE 8th.
4. Don’t Miss the Train
Light rail is just around the corner, and so is the explosive growth in development, population, and economic activity that comes with it. Learn all about Sound Transit’s vision-under construction for the Eastside at September’s Business Lunch with Sound Transit CEO, Peter Rogoff.
5.  Bellevue Club Celebrates 40 Years
A Chamber member since their beginning, the Bellevue Club is now celebrating its 40th anniversary! The Bellevue Club offers programs for both adults and children to explore, play, and connect through recreational and social opportunities.
