Fright Night Trick-or-Treat walk, party October 31st

The Fright Night haunted house from 2012

The Fright Night haunted house.

It’s that scary time or year again! And once again, neighborhood organizations are stepping up to provide some fun —and fright— to trick-or-treaters.

The Children’s Home Society of Washington’s North Seattle Family Center and the Lake City Lions have teamed up for the 22nd annual Fright Night.

This event is fun for the entire family, especially children ages 2 to 12.

The walk takes place 5:15-6:15 pm.. You can begin the walk and pick up a map and treat bags at CHSW’s North Seattle Family Center (2611 N.E. 125th St., Suite 145 in the Lake City Professional Building) or Lake City Court Computer Lab (12536 33rd Ave. N.E., Seattle).

The walk ends with the Fright Night Party from 6:30-8 pm. at the Lake City Community Center (12531 28th Ave. N.E., Seattle). Sponsored by the Lake City Lions, the party includes games, food, crafts, costume contest, prizes and a haunted house.

Lake City Tree Lighting moves to Lake City Community Center

Xmas treeYes, you read it right. Our annual tree lighting, our Union Bank 7th Annual Tree Lighting, will be held at Lake City Community Center instead of the Lake City Mini Park. There will be cookies, cider and coffee, caroling, music and of course, Santa!

We are looking for a throne-like chair for Santa. You may have one in your attic or garage! If so, and if you would be willing to part with it, please give us a call. (We have an offer from Doran’s Upholstry to give Santa’s throne a face lift.)

Please put it on your calendar now:  December 3, 7 PM, Lake City Community Center, 12531 28th Avenue NE.

For more information, please email northseattlechamber@gmail.com  or call 206.363.3287.

IMG_7607.JPG

Today, Thursday, October 2nd, is the final day of the 2014 farmers market season. But don’t worry, it’s not the end of tasty food-centric events in the neighborhood. At the market, Lake City Future First is kicking off its “World Of Tastes in the Heart of Lake City” business support program.

The goal of the program is to support our diverse neighborhood food establishments, and to help community members discover some of the offerings here in Lake City. “We want to support our local establishments and enhance our economic development model to both retain and attract businesses,” said an announcement from the organization. Info follows:

We want to strengthen all the ties within our community and connecting you to some of our fantastic food offerings here in Lake City in a meaningful way will further our growing sense of community and place.

Let those business owners that you are familiar with know that you are glad they took part and use this as an opportunity to visit the places you had been meaning to check out but hadn’t found the time.

How Does It Work? Simply stop into any one of our participating businesses to pick up a passport and get started. Visit all seven locations and make your purchase to receive your stamp. Purchase a single entrée from a participating restaurant or spend $10.00 at one of the specialty markets and earn a stamp from each location. Once you have completed the passport with all seven stamps, return it to the Kaffeeklatsch by October 31, 2014 and you will automatically be entered to win our grand prize. One winner will be chosen at random and notified via the contact information they provided on the card within 24 hours of the drawing.

Who is participating? The following restaurants and markets are taking part in our first effort:

Mania Manila / Elliot Bay Brewing Co. / Pho An / Erawan Bankok Thai / Lake City Gyros / Beer Authority / Kaffeeklatsch

The generous prizes and additional support through donations to cover costs associated with the passport are provided by Two Dog Yoga – Kaffeeklatsch – Elliot Bay Brewing – Print Fusion

What can I win? $50 Gift Cards to both Kaffeeklatsch and Elliot Bay – 5 Free Yoga Sessions at Two Dog Yoga (over $100 value) and a $50 VISA gift card.

Don’t see your favorite spot on the list? We had so many wonderful businesses to choose from and not all were able to take part at this time. Let your favorites know that you would love to see them get involved next time.

Please join us in engaging with our business community by participating in the first of what we hope will be an ongoing support program.

HIP has been fighting hunger in Seattle since 1998. We’re actively working with our community partners to end hunger in Lake City. HIP’s staff and 90+ volunteers lead cooking demonstrations at North Helpline Food Bank each week, teaching easy and delicious recipes. During the summer you can find HIP in local parks and playgrounds serving fresh, healthy and free lunches and snacks for kids and teens. During the school year, we put together Healthy HIP Packs, a weekend food program that makes sure kids at risk of hunger at John Rogers, Viewlands, Olympic Hills and Briarcrest Elementary schools have food to eat when out of school. All year long, seniors can enjoy HIP’s nutritious weekly meal every Monday at the Lake City Community Center. This fall we’ll be partnering with the Lake City Library to offer free afterschool snacks to kids and teens in partnership with their Homework Help program.

Come celebrate the start of the school year and the harvest season with your local community at HIP Fest! For more information about HIP Fest and to see our programs in action, visit www.hungerintervention.org.
