The last weekend in April always brings a weekend full of
family friendly fun and fishing! Trout fishing at its finest if you ask any of
the kids at our local Lake Wilderness that night.
Lake Wilderness is an easy 30 minutes East from our office. The afternoon brought campers into the park to set up camp and to get their tackle ready for the trout derby that started at midnight.
Anglers get to launch out at midnight and fish until noon the next day. Local chambers and rotary clubs sponsor the annual event and give families a great night full of fishing, camping and fun including outdoor movies, games, camp fires, concessions, prizes and a fisherman’s breakfast the next morning.
This weekend, Seattle celebrates the Opening Day of Boating Season!
From its earliest days Seattle has celebrated important occasions with water festivities. The opening day on the Montlake Cut began in 1920 and has been celebrated the first Saturday in May and is steeped in tradition with kicking off the parade with the blast of a cannon and the raising of the Montlake Bridge. Seattle Yacht Club’s Opening Day has become the nation’s largest regional celebration of water, Spring and the opening of boating season. Participating yachts will be decorated to illustrate this year’s theme for Opening Day, “Boating Through the Decades”.

Tis the season of giving!
We like to think of Classic Accessories as an all-season company, year round, we’ve got you covered. We also like to extend the giving to our community of Kent, WA year round.
We have been fortunate enough to be able to work with some great local non-profits and organizations like:
Bloodworks Northwest This year our staff donated enough blood to save 63 lives right in our parking lot with
Northwest Harvest This Spring we helped prep and pack 5,500 pounds of rice which helps feed 4,269
families in our community – that’s HUGE!
New this year was a park clean up at Glenn Nelson Park. We worked with the Green Partnership of Kent who let us know that the mulch we spread is very beneficial because it retains water for the trees during these dry summer months and will eventually break down in to healthy soil and food for the trees. The mulch also helps to smother weeds and makes the park even more beautiful. We also cleared many black berry bushes away from the native shrubs.
This Fall we connected with East Side Baby Corner with a giving tree in our office. We purchased much needed items for children in need from newborns all the way through teens. EBC was founded in 1990 when a local pediatric nurse practitioner, became concerned about the large numbers of babies in her practice that began life without adequate food, clothing, beds or safety equipment. Her commitment to giving these children a stronger start grew from a idea and a few items gathered in her dining room, into an agency that in 2016 filled its 500,000th order of absolute essentials.
We are a lucky team here at Classic Accessories to be able give back to our community and we are looking forward to doing the same next year.
