Imagine that! Newcastle is the 18th best place to live in the nation, according to CNN’s Money Magazine.

Distinction for Newcastle is nothing new. Two years ago, Newsweek ranked the city No. 17.

Someone at City Hall or the chamber of commerce did a good job supplying the information that helped Money Magazine determine Newcastle’s ranking.

“The volunteer spirit is alive and well in this former coal-mining town…,” writes the magazine. “Despite serious budget cuts that threatened the city’s summer 2011 events, local businesses and citizens offered time and cash to keep the community’s concerts and fireworks afloat.

“There’s a 350-acre golf course here, not to mention 12 parks; the 3,115-acre Cougar Mountain Wildland Park is right next door. Newcastle residents can jump on a trail in the city and end up in the Issaquah Alps.”

Yes, that’s your city through and through. City leadership and resident involvement has made Newcastle a collection of neighborhoods that strive for community pride.

It’s that pride — and volunteer spirit — that will be celebrated Sept. 9-11 at Newcastle Days. The annual festival is held as a birthday party for the city. The city is now 17 years old and getting better every year!

Take time to visit Lake Boren Park during Newcastle Days. Enjoy the live music and entertainment, ooh and ahh over the classic cars, let the kids run a bit wild, mingle with your neighbors. But don’t leave without learning a bit more about your city and how you can volunteer one hour or more to make a difference next year.

There’s no reason Newcastle can’t be the No. 1 best place to live in the nation. Let’s get there together!
