What is it??? Not a bird or a plane, it’s a very special cube or wall.
Why??? To start a conversation with our communities about why we need water and that we value it.
Where??? Cascade’s We Need Water Because… campaign was unveiled by City of Bellevue Mayor Claudia Balducci as that city was preparing for the Bellevue Fourth of July event.
How??? We want to start a conversation with our communities about why we all need and value water. Colorful chalk is available for individuals to share their thoughts with the community at large, and by taking their photo at the wall and sharing it on weneedwaterbecause.org and at #weneedwaterbecause, they have begun an important discussion about this precious resource in a time when water is scarce around the country.
Cascade Chair John Marchione, Redmond mayor, introduced the display just prior to Redmond Derby Days, urging attendees of that event to share their thoughts not just with their Redmond neighbors but with the entire Eastside and South King County.
And where will this be next? Kirkland's Juanita Beach Park beginning July 31st and into the first week of August. After that, keep your eyes peeled as it is coming to your neighborhood.
But even if you don’t see it you can join the conversation at weneedwaterbecause.org and at #weneedwaterbecause. Cascade’s service area has a growing economy, a booming population, and great schools and parks to ensure a wonderful quality of life.
But what makes all of this possible – all of our growth into the 21st century – is something so important and yet something we take for granted every day. Water.
