Well, actually......they do. The 1935 Captain Anderson Ferry Clock at the corner of Lake Street and Kirkland Avenue stopped at 1:33 years ago. Its housing was badly deteriorated and the City of Kirkland removed and stored it. A citizen committee lead by Sue Contreras in partnership with the Kirkland Heritage Society took on the challenge to restore the historic clock. With help from more than 250 citizens and organizations, the committee has raised $9000 to cover the cost of the project. The City of Kirkland Public Workds Dept has upgraded the light standard on which the clock will again be installed.
Please join in with the community on Sunday Feb 10th where the Captain Anderson Ferry Clock will be re-dedicated to the citizens of Kirkland at 1pm with the unveiling of the clock. She'll be tick tocking again at Lake and Kirkland. ~j
