To celebrate their third decade in business, Ballard-based Annie’s Nannies (2236 NW 58th St Suite 101) is putting out the call to all current and former employees, along with those who have used their services (whether as a parent or a child) to join them for a large family photo this Thursday afternoon.

“I want to take a photo with as many of the families, nannies and staff members connected to our business as I can,” said Annie Davis, founder of Annie’s Nannies, who now runs the business with her daughter, Suzanne Rover-McCone.

The family photo will take place at 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, in Woodland Park’s shelter 5 (1000 N 50th Street), with a kid-friendly picnic lunch, goody bags, balloon animals, reunions and Goofy Gideon the Magician all part of the festivities.

“We throw a summer picnic for our nannies and their charges, but this year is special,” said Royer-McCone in a press release. “We want to celebrate our 30th with all the people who are important to us.”

Annie’s was founded in 1984, and is the Northwest’s longest-serving household staffing agency. In 2009, the agency won a Mayor’s Small Business Award. In April, Annie’s announced they would begin offering a $15 minimum wage to all employees, well before the city’s new law goes into effect.

    The more time and attention you give to it,
    the more likely it is that you will have a litter box trained ferret.
    Try to reward your animal whenever they respond or pay heed
    to your voice when you utter out their name. re one of those weird
    pets that only the strange and lonely have, aren.
