Back in the 1950's through the 1960's Lake Washington Village had a well functioning business
association which put on sales events like Moonlight Madness, with all the merchants open until midnight on a Friday night, or Lake Washington Dollar Days where all the merchants would feature super sale items. Here an advertisement from the local papers for one such event and a photo of how The Butcher Block looked in 1955. The Lake Washington Village was quite an elegant place in the day. We hope it will become such a place again.
