Huge Thanks to All Who Came Out
Our Sunday Clean Up on May19th was a sparkling success. We had over 30 participants for our largest regular Sunday Clean Up in two years. A big thanks for members of the Build Lake City Together Clean and Safe Committee and to all those that came out to lend a hand. We collected about 20 bags of trash, returned some stray shopping carts and collected six needles. We worked mainly around 28th Avenue in anticipation of the opening of the Lake City Farmers Market on June 6th. Please consider joining us for the next Sunday Clean Up.

Focus Group Opportunity
The Seattle Department of Transportation is looking for 8 to 10 people to participate in a discussion about finding your way around the city on foot. This discussion is part of a year-long project to design better walking directions and information to encourage Seattleites and visitors to walk more and further. These meetings will provide the City with critical early input from those who have first-hand knowledge of wayfinding challenges in Seattle.
The discussion will take place over 2 hours on October 10th at the Central Library (1000 4th Ave, Seattle 98104). There will be an afternoon (2pm-4pm) and an evening (5:30-7:30) session. Volunteers must be available on this date to be considered. Refreshments will be provided. Participants will be acknowledged for their time with a $60 Safeway gift card.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
