Lake Hills residents and businesses honored “community treasures” last night at a celebration at Robinswood School.
More than 120 youth and adults had completed a Bellevue Family YMCA survey that asked for nominations of people, gathering places, and cultural and historical institutions that deserved “treasured” status.
Treasures include the Bellevue Police Department for keeping the neighborhood safe; Bill Coles, for helping neighbors and for his annual Halloween display; the Combo Restaurant; Stamos Cafe; St. Louise Catholic Church; the Lake Hills Greenbelt; AMF Sun Villa Lanes; Samena Club; and the city of Bellevue’s Lake to Lake Trail.
