Q&A with Diane Haugen, former director of the Lake City Community Center and the Chamber of Commerce
Moving on to New Things
Enjoy Lake City (ELC) recently visited Diane Haugen at a local restaurant to talk about a changing Lake City, the meaning of community, and the joy of Alpacas. The former Executive Director of the Lake City/North Seattle Chamber of Commerce and manager of the Lake City Community Center has moved on to new work in a different neighborhood, but says she feels she will always be part of the Lake City community.
ELC: How long did you work at the Chamber and the Community Center?
Ten years for the Chamber and five at the Community Center.
