Shout Out
"My son recently got married with a little help from some Chamber members! Thanks to Laurel at The Bothell Florist for the picture perfect bouquets that had to survive the 100 degree heat! Thanks to Richard at OlsonDesign who designed the wedding bands using the bride's grandmother's diamonds. The table arrangements came from the Country Village Shops Farmers Market and the linen rentals from Sweet Buffet Lady. It was fun to take a little of Bothell with us to Plain, WA!" - Submitted by Kim Monson, Bothell Chamber.
