This week at PCC: Redmond Lights, food bank packaging parties, wine and more!

Frosty nights have arrived and lights are aglow -- time to gather family and friends, appreciate that we have shelter from the storm and to reach out to those who don't. Address this trio this week with PCC.

JOIN US FOR REDMOND LIGHTS 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5 at Redmond City Hall and Redmond Town Center. PCC helps sponsor this annual event, which includes a tree lighting, lit river walk and live music. We'll be offering samples of  fresh food and a special party mix, to boot. Visit for details.

PET LIVE REINDEER, meet Santa and sit in his sleigh at the Issaquah Reindeer Festival, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Dec. 1-23 at Cougar Mountain Zoo, 19525 S.E. 54th St. in Issaquah. Discounted tickets are on sale at Issaquah PCC. Children under 2 are free. Visit for details.

DONATE THE DIFFERENCE and help reduce hunger in our communities by contributing to the PCC Food Bank Program. PCC uses your donations (100 percent) to buy nutritious bulk foods at discounted prices, which are then packaged by PCC volunteers and given to local food banks. At the checkout stand say you'll "donate the difference" and your purchase will be rounded up to the nearest dollar, with the difference donated to the program.

AND ON THAT NOTE: If you live/work near Kirkland, stop by the Kirkland Food Bank (11011 120th Ave. N.E.) 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 7 and volunteer to help package food for needy families. 

DISCOVER A NEW WINE or two or three at our wine tastings. Click here for a list of events through the end of the year!

REGISTER FOR WINTER PCC COOKS CLASSES in the new winter catalog. From kids classes to gluten-free cooking to knife skills to perfect meat and poultry, there's something for everyone.

Have a great week!

I absolutely love this time of year. It's so exciting when it comes around.. but is kind of sad to watch it leave. Thankfully it always comes around every year though, so all you can do is get pumped about next year coming even sooner! Lol!

I would have loved to take the kids to pet the reindeer. Things like that are a little sad to me though. It's a little sad we subject them to such human acts, when we really don't have a right to. Although, I guess if you think about it on the flip side, they could just be in the wild, and be attacked by a mountain lion.. and be dead..

So alas, where's the debate in that?

(I'm, starting paramedic training this summer. Wish me luck!)

re; This week at PCC: Redmond Lights, food bank packaging partie

Thank you very much for the information that is why you should comparison shop for every product or service you intend to use, and that includes finding the best banks. A bunch of big banks are offering incentives to join them and become the biggest post recession bank – Bank of America, BB&T, and numerous others are offering cash incentives for anyone creating a checking account with their bank, plus some requirements of course. (Granted, their overdraft policies will send anyone going even a penny over running for payday loans.) A person might be better off actually going to a credit union, as they have better interest rates on accounts, and on loans – and far more emphasis on customer service than shareholder enrichment.
