Welcome to our September edition of the Leschi News. We are very excited about the Leschi Art Walk on Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 11–4. We are on our sixth year and each year our vision expands. We invite you to join us. Local artists will be displaying their craft and local businesses are showcasing their offerings. There will be music and a play area for the children in the park.
I am your new President of the Leschi Community Council and am excited to serve. Having lived in Leschi for 14 years, Leschi is very near to my heart. I believe we have an amazing hidden jewel and a respite far from the maddening crowd. My goal is to reach out to our newer residents to interest them in engaging with and becoming active members of the Community Council. Those residents who have lived here two years or less will receive a personal letter from me.
Our September meeting, Wednesday, September 6 will feature the Marina contract, recently approved by the City Council. We had hoped to meet with our concerns before the council vote, but we weren’t able to stop it. We can air any concerns at this meeting. The meeting starts promptly at 7pm at the Central Area Senior Center.
I look forward to serving our community and meeting all of you,
Janice Merrill Brown,
President, Leschi Community Council
