November is the beginning of the holiday season and excitement fills the air with anticipation of great food, truly decadent desserts, catching up with family and friends and being grateful for all we treasure.
As promised, this month, Wednesday, November 1st at 7:00p we are delighted to have Felicia J. Cross, the Crime Prevention Coordinator, East Precinct, Seattle Police Department. A long time resident of our neighborhood, Felicia will be speaking on what has been accomplished in preventing crime in Leschi and the challenges facing our neighborhood. Please join us to learn what services are available to us through the Seattle Police Department, and how to form a Block Watch. She will also be providing the latest crime statistics for Leschi. Please join us on Wednesday, November 1 at the at The Central, aka the Senior Center at 500 30th Ave. S.
One of my missions in this post as your President of the LCC is continued community building. A way we all can contribute to each of our immediate neighborhoods is to create an old-fashioned telephone tree. We have residents who may live alone and it would be wonderful if they knew they could contact a close neighbor if needed. Certainly most of us are already doing this, but as a reminder, get to know your neighbors. Also, if you see suspicious activity, I am certain Felicia will let us know the most effective way to handle it.
Our thanks to Jeff Floor for our enlightening Land Use 102 presentation last month. His knowledge and participation in the Leschi Community Council is very appreciated.
As of this publishing deadline, our Halloween Spooktacular has not taken place, but chances are it will be a stunning success as it has been in the past.
