With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to inventory your plates and flatware: do you have enough for all your guests? You can borrow sets of dishes, serving bowls, tablecloths, silverware, champagne flutes and wine glasses from the NE Seattle Tool Library.
Join the Tool Library and borrow punch bowls, serving trays and cooking utensils instead of buying seldom-used items. The Tool Library has enough dinnerware to serve 180 people. Check the browsable inventory on-line.
Hurry in this weekend! The NE Seattle Tool Library will be open for the last time before the Thanksgiving holiday, on Saturday, November 22 from 9 to 3 PM, and Sunday, November 23 from 2 to 5 PM.
The Lake City Community Center at 12531 28th Ave NE is located next door to the Lake City Branch Library in a busy commercial and residential area, a designated Urban Village of Seattle. The community center building is worn out and badly in need of replacement. An initiative is underway via the City of Seattle budget process to eventually get a new building. In the meantime, you can help support the programs by attending a fun holiday theater performance.
On Sunday evening, December 14, Taproot Theatre’s Improv Team will present It’s a Wonderful, Improvised, Life! It’s a Wonderful Life is a movie classic enjoyed by everyone at the holiday season, but have you ever wanted to re-write the plot? Would you like George Bailey to handle things a little differently, or would you like to see Mr. Potter get his just desserts? During the performance by the Taproot Improv Team, they will solicit suggested plot turnings from the audience.
The event is a fundraiser for a stage and stage lights for performing arts at Lake City Community Center. Tickets are available at the center or at Brown Paper Tickets.
North Seattle, including Wedgwood and Lake City, is served by the North Helpline which offers emergency services in food, housing and health care. The holiday season brings increased opportunities to help by contributing nonperishable foods at one of the collection sites in Wedgwood. Look for the basket just inside the front door at Wedgwood Hair Studio, 8206 35th Ave NE in the shopping plaza between the Wedgwood Broiler and Homestreet Bank.
Another way to contribute to the North Helpline is through the Turkey Drive at Fred Meyer in Lake City. If you are out shopping on Friday and Saturday, November 21 and 22, consider picking up some extra food or a turkey to donate. Donation stations are available at Fred Meyer.
