North End News: Election Edition

The new issue of the North End New is on its way to your doorstep! It includes information about candidates for Boise mayor & city council. Read up, and then vote! Early voting began Oct. 21, and Election Day is Nov. 5.

Lots of other great neighborhood news inside, as well. If you can’t wait for our volunteers to deliver your newsletter, you can read the fall issue of North End News online right away!

Please note: Due to an editorial error, City Council candidate Tecle Gebremichael was inadvertently excluded in the original version. His information has been added and can be found on the last page of the digital newsletter, or on a single-page insert inside paper copies. 

Holiday House Tour

Saturday, Dec. 14, 2019


We are pleased to announce the 3rd Annual North End Holiday Home Tour! Neighbors and visitors will enjoy a self-guided stroll through some of the North End’s unique homes –  some historic, some re-imagined, and some new – but all will be decked out in their holiday best!

The tour will include approximately a half-dozen homes, and homeowners and/or volunteers will be stationed at each home to greet you.

This year’s Holiday Home Tour is a fundraiser for NENA’s new partnership with the local non-profit Jesse Tree, which provides a hand up to people facing eviction, empowering them to remain in their homes.​ NENA created a dedicated fund for Jesse Tree, which is used for the benefit of residents within the boundaries of the North End neighborhood.

Tickets are $25 per person (or $20 if pre-purchased online). Kids under 12 are free. Advance-rate tickets will be available beginning in November at www.squareup.com/store/nena. NENA can accept cash and cards for tickets purchased in person on the day of the event.

Date: Saturday, December 14, 2019
Hours: 2 p.m. until 6 p.m.
Who: The tour is open to everyone! (Kids under 12 are free.) Invite your friends, family, and neighbors!
Where: Pick up your map & wristbands on Dec. 14 in the Hays Street Historic District. Exact location will be announced soon.
