Company Updates

January 23, 2015
We have a tradition here at the City of Seattle which has reached new heights. Fridays are Blue Friday to honor the Seattle Seahawks. Most business groups are encouraged to wear our team colors proudly, so you'll see folks in jerseys, t-shirts, or even sporting blue hair. It's sure to lift spirits to see everyone so excited for the Hawks.
