Happy Fourth Of July!

Our communities put on their best red, white, and blue this last weekend as they celebrated Independence Day! With incredible sunny weather, residents enjoyed outdoor eating, festive games, and tons of other fun activities.

Our Washington communities at First Hill and Kirkland took advantage of some fantastic summer weather as they got outside to enjoy the day. At First Hill, the team went all out on their decorations and broke out their best Independence Day outfits for the occasion!
