On May 28th over 150 Lake City community members packed into Elliot Bay Brewery’s downstairs event room for a truly wonderful celebration of our awarding of the Only In Seattle Grant and the formation of Lake City Future First. Janet Arkills gave a lively and informative presentation on the opportunities provided by the grant and invited all those attending to get involved. Deputy Mayor Hyeok Kim was there to address the crowd and partake in the fun and casual atmosphere. Representatives from the Seattle Department of Transportation, the Department of Planning and Development, and the Office of Economic Development were on hand to talk about some of the many things happening in our community. Several Lake City organizations were also there to hand out information and field questions from a very enthusiastic group of community members. A huge thanks goes out to Elliot Bay for hosting and providing free beer samples and tasty treats. The evening ended in a wonderful percussion jam with instruments and orchestration by our very own John from Jam Town. It was a truly special event with a flavor that is unique to our growing Lake City community.
