Neighbors Come Out on Beautiful Autumn Day to Shine Up Lake City
On Sunday, October 15th, LCFF wrapped up a great year of neighborhood Clean Up efforts starting back with our “Spring Clean” in April. About 60 participants came out to enjoy conversation, some tasty snacks and the feeling of doing something tangible for the Community.
It was amazing to see so many families and young people join the effort. Keep an eye out for the Clean Up’s to return in Spring!
A huge thank you to our Clean and Safe Committee Chairs, Annette from Kaffeeklatsch and Annie from Two Dog Yoga for all their hard work. Special thanks to Jonathan Neufeld at GLA, Nance Blase from East Lake City Collaborative, Chuck Dickey with Lake City Lions and LCFF Board Member Molly Burke from the LC Farmers Market for help with set up and staffing the locations. Big gratitude goes to Kaffeeklatsch and Elliott Bay Brewery for providing sandwiches, cookies and coffee for the participants.

Lion’s, Youth and LCFF Partnering on Lake City Way Planters
On May 25th, Mark Mendez’s Lake City Leaders, the Lake City Lion’s Chuck Dickey and I joined up to freshen up the soil and put some bright colored perennials to augment the annuals in the concrete pots that line both the east and west sides of LCW from 120th to 125th. The LC Leaders (participants of a program through the Lake City Community Center and Meadowbrook Teen Center) put on their “Something Is Happening In Lake City” Clean and Safe shirts and got a quick lesson from Chuck on proper planting techniques.The Lake City Lion’s, through Chuck’s dedication, have been helping to maintain these planters for many years. It was great to see the youth working along side Chuck in this effort that provides a simple amenity that brightens up the corridor a bit. The Lion’s and LCFF provided the flowers and soil and the youth provided the elbow grease. A little something we can all be proud of here in the neighborhood.
The Lake City Lion’s have and continue to do so much within the Community. Their work often goes unnoticed in the world of social media that is a primary mode of acknowledging and promoting positive community work. Next time you run across one of our Lake City Lions, often working out of the Community Center, be sure to thank them for their service and commitment to the Community.
