Sound Bites: Kent News

Local News and Events for Kent, Washington

This edition of Sound Bites is sponsored by AAA Pest Control.

iLoveKent is on hiatus until Wed., July 5, but we’ve put together our weekly Sound Bites with local news and events to keep you up-to-date. We lost one of our regular advertisers, so we’ll be cutting back on our activity until we find a replacement. Thanks in advance for your understanding.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

NEW–Our latest feature: Wear A Big Smile Foundation
Michelle Teeter wrote her latest feature on Wear a Big Smile Foundation, a division of Washington Shoe Company, based here in Kent. The foundation was launched last year to give back to the community. The company donates boots to those in need including clients at the Kent Clothing Bank at Kent Phoenix Academy.
