LCFF Business Luncheon

LCFF Welcomes King County Council Member Rod Dembowski for Luncheon

A huge thank you to Hellbent Brewery for hosting our Lake City Future First Luncheon on July 17th. Local businesses, service providers and community leaders were treated to a wonderful spread from Otto’s Smokehouse. Mike from Otto’s was on hand to introduce himself and the crowd was able to welcome him to the neighborhood.

We were honored to have King County Council Member Rod Dembowski as our speaker. Rod updated the group on his work and took questions from the attendees for nearly an hour.

LCFF Board Member Annie Stocker, owner of Two Dog Yoga, was also on hand to talk about all the wonderful work she has done around this year’s Salmon Bake coming up on August 4th. This year’s Salmon Bake is sponsored by Lake City Future First as is the World Music Stage in Albert Davis park with activities for kids and families running from 11am to 4pm.
