The city of Mercer Island and Mercer Island Youth and Family Services (MIYFS) Foundation invite the entire community into the halls of the historic Luther Burbank Administration Building (2040 84th Ave. SE) from 1-4 p.m. on Oct. 1 for the third annual Open House.

Bring your family on a tour of the MIYFS Administrative Offices (the “Red Brick Building” in Luther Burbank Park), and be the first to purchase from this season’s glass pumpkin collection. Come and enjoy festive treats, family activities, prizes and more. And this year, MIYFS invites all attendees to help “Fill the Wagon” by bringing a non-perishable donation for the city Food Pantry.

To learn more about the Foundation or the event, contact MIYFS Development Officer Sari Weiss at 206-275-7756, or visit the Foundation website at https://miyfs.org/.
