Congratulations to Dr. Tarr & the Madrona Family Dental team, who are now celebrating their 10th anniversary. Prior to working at the Madrona office, Dr. Tarr worked for King County Public Health at the Columbia City clinic, and although he enjoyed working in public health, he chose to establish his own business where he could make his own decisions about how to take good care of his patients. He came to work in the Madrona neighborhood after he and his family dined at the Hi Spot and saw the Bowling Green facility break ground, and he began thinking it would be an ideal spot for his practice. Dr. Tarr has always felt welcome in the neighborhood, and believes it is a privilege that residents seem to go out of their way to support the local businesses.
Now through October 31st in appreciation of the community’s loyalty, you may enter a drawing held by Madrona Family Dental for a chance to win gift certificates from Madrona Merchants as well as other gifts from the office. Stop by the office at 3306 East Spring Street, or give them a call at 206-324-5400 for details.
Seattle Firefighters responded to a 911 call this weekend early Sunday morning to a fire at Madrona Elementary School. According to the Seattle Times, firefighters quickly extinguished an intentionally set fire that burned a shed outside of the school. Someone had called in an arson after driving by the school around 12:30am Sunday morning and seeing the flames, and firefighters were able to put out the fire within 10 minutes.
An investigation has since been determined that this incident was intentional, and has been handed over to Seattle Police for investigation. The fire has reportedly caused $2,500 in damages, with $1,000 damages to the school’s exterior, $1,000 to the shed, and $500 in damages to the contents that were inside the shed. If you have any information about this incident, please contact Seattle Police as soon as you can.
