President’s Message

Hello Leschi neighbors,

Wow! Do you ask yourself where did this year go? Particularly with holiday music, lights and decorations happening before Thanksgiving.

Our program for December is our annual Holiday Party. We, as we write, are waiting for confirmation on our musical program. In the past we have had a string quartet from Garfield’s orchestra... Alas, they graduated. We expect an equally mesmerizing program this year. We will have appetizers, cookies, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages. This is a wonderful opportunity to give a look at your Community Council and ask about engaging with us. We encourage you to come and to become involved. While we cannot promise a trip to Tahiti for your participation, we can offer you an opportunity to make a difference in whatever way you are able in our little corner of Seattle.

The season is upon us and most of us will have to dig deep for extra energy.

It is also a time to look around, check on neighbors, offer to drive someone somewhere, pick up groceries, and care about our neighbors. Sometimes the loneliest people are the ones who do so much for others and are too humble to ask for themselves. Reach out and ask. The worst that can happen is they can say no. The best is you could really make someone’s day.

In 2020 we already have a great line up of programs. You are always welcome to come to our monthly meetings. The location is at the Central Area Senior Center at 500 30th Ave. S., on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m.

Wishing you a magnificent holiday season. Smile, hug lots, breathe, engage in mindfulness and most of all, laugh ‘til your belly hurts.

Warm regards,

Janice Merrill Brown

President, Leschi Community Council
