Monday Night Dancing in Albert Davis Park – 6:30pm-7:30pm
Please join the Seattle Parks Department and Lake City Future First as we present “World Dance Lessons” in Albert Davis Park on Monday nights until August 20th. In partnership with the Lake City Young Leaders Program this series gives you an opportunity to learn a new dance, brush up on your skills or just enjoy the performance.
Albert Davis Park located behind the Lake City Community Center.
Over the past week, 72 solar panels were installed on the roof of Hellbent Brewing Company (http://www.hellbentbrewingcompany.com/), the largest solar system on a brewery in our state, right here in Lake City! While installing the system, Edwin Wanji, owner of Sphere Solar Energy (http://spheresolarenergy.org/), and Jack Guinn, owner of Hellbent Brewery, invited local teens in Lake City to learn about the large solar project and to learn about careers in the solar industry. The teens were able to see and touch the solar panels while learning about how they produce clean energy!
In addition, the Lake City teens learned about the potential of solar energy to transform how our planet produces energy and learned about the humanitarian solar projects Edwin and his team have worked in countries like Haiti and Honduras.The Hellbent Brewery solar project is an example project for the ‘Solarize Lake City’ initiative started by local community leaders to address climate change. Thanks to community leaders like Edwin Wanji and Jack Guinn who are thinking local and acting global, we are empowering our youth in Lake City to be the next generation of leaders.
LCFF is proud to post this article by local youth, Alanna Ramirez, as part of our hope to provide the personal stories and observations of those who call Lake City “home”.
Title: Knowing Reality – by Alanna ramirez
“For years the beauty industry has influenced many trends and beauty secrets; whether that’s to curl your hair with soda cans, or learning how to clear a blemish overnight. This industry has become a huge platform to showcase standards of beauty among many different races and cultures. Although this can be seen as a good way to inspire and educate young individuals, the beauty world has become a blindfold to cover up the true meaning of what beauty is. Especially towards women of color being affected by the racism and fake body image standards they are expected to obtain.
