Information for Shoreline

We regret to announce that we are cancelling our annual array of citywide summer celebrations, neighborhood events, and recreation classes this year in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

This was not an easy decision for us to make. Residents throughout the community look forward to our summer events every year. And our summer camps are extremely popular. However, to help keep our community healthy, we simply cannot operate as we have in the past. 

Summer Events 

While we won’t be able to gather for our annual celebrations and events, we are looking at ways to ensure we can still celebrate. After all, we are celebrating 25 years of being a City this year! We are working with our partner organizations and neighborhood associations to find ways to capture some of the community and creativity of summer events through other means. Now more than ever it is important for us to make those community connections, even if they are done from a distance.  

Some of the events we will be holding this summer include:
