A Tea Party to celebrate Joseph Leonard and April Carl

Northshore Family Center has been a part of the Bothell Community for over five years, and during that time we have worked with many volunteers and community partners. These individuals and groups have done an extraordinary job of supporting our programs.

In 2008, Northshore Family Center started a new celebration to highlight some of these outstanding volunteers with the title of ‘Northshore Champions’.

When it was time for us to choose our 2009 Northshore Champions, it wasn’t a difficult decision to make. Everyone agreed that the founder of Baby Corner, April Carl, and our loyal English for Latinos teacher, Joe Leonard, should be the chosen ones. We planned a Tea Party to celebrate both of them; everyone wanted to take part in this event and brought lots of yummy treats to share.

Here is Rachel Borella, Program Manager for the Northshore Family Center, presenting the awards to Joe and April. During the event we were visited by Bothell Reporter’ Andy Nystrom, who took some pictures that are now available on their website.

The Northshore Family Center wants to thank Joe and April for their hard work and always-contagious enthusiasm. This community would not be the same without you.

Thank you!
