President’s Message

Hello Leschi Neighbors,

It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving and the holiday season is soon upon us. As I write this, the sun is out and it’s about 55 degrees.

Last month we had a lively debate on issues with City Council Candidates for District 3; Kshama Sawant and Egan Orion. Trevor, our LCC Executive Vice President and Diane Ramsey, gathered questions and sorted by subject. While there was not time to address all questions, the questions asked covered most of the concerns we hear today. The pace was kept steady and guests had the opportunity to listen to both their views in a civilized setting. Personally, I was grateful for the respect that was shown to fellow audience members, the candidates and our crew. Be sure to vote November 5h!

Who is Leschi? A question many people ask, particularly newcomers to our little village. I think we are one of the best kept secrets in the Seattle area. Please come to our November meeting, Wednesday the 6th at 7:30p at the Central Area Senior Center, located at 500 30th Ave. S. (Please note new time.) We have an exciting presentation from Leschi School that answers that question.

Again, it is the time of year to be aware of our friends, family and neighbors. Please remember to check on those who may be alone and need some assistance or just a visit to say hello. Be generous with others and yourselves. Too often we forget to give time to ourselves.

I personally wish all of you a lovely Thanksgiving—whether you celebrate with turkey, tofu turkey or Chinese food—enjoy! And don’t forget, our December meeting is our annual holiday meeting with music and appetizers.


Janice Merrill Brown

LCC Board President
