Hello Fellow Leschi Residents,
Well, as you read this message, we are about to “spring forward” on March 8th.
Are you ready? I would be curious as to your feelings about it...love it, hate it, or leave my circadian rhythms alone.
We have an exciting program lined up for March, which is Women’s History Month. This also coincides with this being the 100th year anniversary of women’s right to vote, or the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. We are very thrilled to have Tames Alan, a performer who has appeared at the Ashland Shakespeare Festival, as well as local historical theatre. Tames will depict what life was like as a suffragette. This program is an opportunity to dial back time and honor the rights of women and the women who made it possible. Please join us.
Again, the Leschi Art Walk will be in Saturday, September 12th this year. We are looking for both artists and volunteers who want to help this event continue. Last year we had new artists on board and each year, the artists, plus the events focused on children in the park, are a great way to meet and interact with your fellow Leschi neighbors.
As you embark on planting spring flowers, note that there are always programs that need volunteers headed by John Barber aimed at continuing to beautify our street ends and small parks that are underserved by the Seattle Parks Department.
Please join us on Wednesday, March 4th for the Suffragette presentation and reach out to your neighbors to see if anyone needs a ride that evening to the Central Area Senior Center. The program will begin at 7:30 pm.
Janice Merrill Brown, President, LCC
