Holiday Home Tour is Near!

The 2011 BNA "Holiday on the Hill" home tour is this Saturday, Dec 10th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm. This year the tour focuses on six architecturally unique homes found in the Bonnie Leslie neighborhood of Bellevue.

Two English Tudors, two American influenced Cape Cods and two Dutch Colonials will be featured, all refreshed and decorated for the holiday season. Built some 60 plus years ago, each home has been updated with features such as new kitchens and baths while retaining the charm of original hardwood pegged flooring or decorative Rookwood tiled fireplace surrounds.

Neighbors helping neighbors

Hunger never takes a holiday... Bellevue's city clerk's office has been overflowing with your generosity. So far Bellevue has been able to make substantial donations to all the food pantries that serve our neighborhoods. The drop off bin will become a permanent fixture in the city building for your continued support of this cause. Thanks to all! 

Tips & Tricks

Unique Gift Wrapping

Try these alternative gift wrapping ideas to cut down on cost and waste: 

- Wrap gifts in reusable shopping bags rather than disposable bags

- Use old paper maps, posters, calendars, or unused wallpaper to wrap gifts instead of purchasing holiday paper

- Make the container the wrapping such as a mixing bowl, basket, t-shirt, or stockpot

- Use holly or pine cones from your yard rather than a bow or even use a CFL lightbulb
