On Friday, November 22, Destinations Lynnwood celebrated its rebranding with “Friends-giving!”  Emily Clarke, Regional Property Manager of Greystar, shared that Destinations Lynnwood is more than active adult independent living; it is a community.

“Destinations is a community were residents enjoy each other’s company.  We provide opportunities for residents to meet and build relationships.”

Jasmine D., Sales Consultant at Destinations Lynnwood, shared the same sentiment adding, “Everyone invites everyone over and socializes… At destinations you have neighbors.”

I graduated from the University of Washington in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts, and I majored in Creative Writing. I began working at the Lynnwood Times in April of 2019 when we released our first issue. To me, community newspapers help highlight things that don’t typically get highlighted by larger news sources. For me, I find this especially true about the arts, and I have a strong passion for the arts community and bringing information about it to the public.
