Hi Colleagues and Fellow Residents,

Renton has grown in the cyber-sphere, too, with an impressive social media presence that boasts over 5000 fans. Enjoy this pixel-roll of the City of Renton's 5000th Fan Celebration at the Berliner Pub downtown:

Residents, city staff, families, and dignitaries attended the party, which included Berliner hor d'ouvres, a no-host bar, tunes from dj100proof, door prizes sponsored by area businesses, and a live twitter feed.  The first 50 attendees received an I like City of Renton, WA t-shirt. The Renton Community Marketing Campaign sponsored the event.

The Renton Community Marketing Campaign embodies a 12-year-old partnership between some of Renton’s organizations, including the Renton School District, Renton Technical College, Valley Medical Center, Renton Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Renton.

Where else does a City promote and host a party for its residents and appreciate social media as part of people's civic space? This party demonstrates yet another reason why I Love Renton and Renton is a great place to live, work, visit, and play. Special thanks and kudos to City of Renton, the Marketing Campaign, the Berliner, area businesses, and a host of awesome residents.  Be sure to support these businesses!

Next: 10,000 fans! Help us to get there by liking Renton. I wonder what kind of party that will be? I'm sure it'll be hoppin'!
