ORB Architects of Renton has hired two intern architects. Nhi Nguyen received her Bachelor of Science in architecture from Temple University in Philadelphia. The focus of her intern development program is on Metro Parks’ Four Community Center Upgrades project.
The lights are off. The electronic reader board is dead. The parking lot is empty. Greenfresh Market is closed. But only temporarily, says Fred Coutts, CEO of the Rainier Avenue North grocery store that specializes in natural and organic food. As the sandwich board outside the grocery store reads: “TEMPORARILY CLOSED. SEE YOU SOON.”
Duc Tran has lived in the United States only 30 years, but he’s already built an Asian empire. Chairman and CEO of the Viet-Wah Group, Tran, 55, runs three Asian food markets, each called Viet-Wah. Two are in Seattle and one in the Renton Highlands. He operates a wholesale business that ships Asian food across the country. And he has started a couple restaurants, including the newly opened Tea Palace, behind Renton’s Viet-Wah in the Greater Hilands Shopping Center on Northeast Sunset Boulevard.
I attended the eighth annual Piazza auction and fundraiser two weeks ago. A gala event, with a fun theme – a “tropical shipwreck” party. Island music was performed by Biff Moss, a regular entertainer at Bahama Breeze, and Moss, whose parents are Piazza volunteers, also served as auctioneer. There was a pretty full house at the Spirit of Washington Events Center – not bad in a so-so economic climate and businesses donated oodles of great auction items.
AAA Washington is kicking off its new “Soap for Hope” donation drive to collect toiletry items and distribute them to persons in need via local shelters, food banks and other charitable organizations.
It honestly seems like just a few weeks ago that I put away my Christmas decorations; but here we go again, ready for another holiday season! I am like a kid in a candy store when it comes to the holidays; I love everything about them – the food, the parties and the presents! Especially buying presents! Although people are pinching their pennies these days, if you are in the market for some jewels for your best girl or guy, there is a place in Renton that you should shop – and that is Garland Jewelers.
