Salmon Bake Returns

Lake City’s Biggest Festival Needs You – August 4th

LCFF is extremely excited to be bringing back the Salmon Bake in conjunction with the Lake City Summer Festival and Parade”.  Annie Stocker of Two Dog Yoga has done a stellar job of improving on the classic salmon bake meal. She was able to bring on a couple wonderful chefs from 21 Acres (http://21acres.org/).  We will have fresh dinner rolls baked by a local Lake Cityzen, a delicious seasonal fruit dessert and fresh greens from the Lake City Farmers Market.

More to come on the festival but for now….

We need volunteers. If you are interested in helping out on the day of please contact director@lakecityfuturefirst.org

July 18th Music in the Mini Park

Wednesday Night Concerts In Mini Park Concerts Continue

As part of the 4th Annual “Music in the Mini Park” concert series, we present this free concert with Orkestyr Farfeleh– “not (just) your Bubbe’s Klezmer”!!
A radiologist, a music theorist and a spiritual philosopher walk into a bar… and play klezmer. Orkestyr Farfeleh, the winsome concoction of Harvey Niebulski, Marianne Tatom and Thaddeus Spae, is a portable feast for lovers of Jewish music, replete with frelachs, Eastern European folk tunes, Yiddishkayt and hats of overwhelming personality. Performing on accordion, clarinet, trombone, guitarron and vocals, they present their diverse material with sharp ears, quick fingers and irrepressible humor, in a program sure to delight young and old alike.

A huge thank you to Hellbent Brewery for hosting our Lake City Future First Luncheon on July 17th.

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.
