j-and-d-30th
Something very special happened for me on the evening of our recent 30 Year Anniversary Soirée. I experienced our store that evening in a new, and shall I say, perhaps more comprehensive way. The evening started out with many kind congratulations for me and my mom on our 30 years, which was very kind, but I soon felt something “bigger” start to take place. The evening began to take on an almost magical feel to me. I remember looking around at one point and seeing not only customer/friends in attendance, but our employees, several sales reps, other Edmonds merchants, clothing company owners, family members and even a Hansville church member. The room was so full of such wonderful and positive energy. So many people were smiling. There was food. There was music. A special group of good people had all come to a good place with good intentions of having a good time, and they were having a good time. What could be more good? We had simply set the stage in the form of an Anniversary event. Wow! I felt humbled.

Someone famous said a long time ago, (over 30 years), that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and that evening proved it to be so true. We thank each one of you for your part in the magic of the evening. We are still feasting on the memory of the whole event. I want to do it all again, but then I hear my dad’s words. For now I’ll just enjoy the memory.

Thanks again, Jenny & Dolores

Yes, we opened the doors to Sound Styles in the fall of 1985 with the idea that we would “try” it for three years. So what happened? Now it’s been 30.

Well, we found an opportunity bigger than we had ever expected. Not only did we find an opportunity to be a part of a community that we have always loved and cared about (my parents built our childhood home up on the hill in 1960), but a greater opportunity to be able to give back to that very community. We found a place where we could grow personally while being a part of a terrific group of businesses dedicated to keeping Edmonds strong and self sustaining. A place where we have been both able and fortunate to do our part.

Whenever I find that healthy give-‘n-take in life I feel so grateful. My mom always told me, “always give a little more than you think you should and you will have given enough”. Pretty smart words.

So, now we wish to thank all of you for allowing us to serve you by inviting you to our 30 year Birthday Soirée on the 22nd of this month. It is a “dress up” event from 5 to 8pm with live music, great food and fabulous door prizes and will not be sale oriented. Just our way of thanking you for supporting us and being our friends. Please RSVP by the 12th so the caterer can plan food.
Really hope to see you.

Jenny and Dolores
