Music and Mindfulness is taking a break for the summer. Classes will not be held for the next few months, but don’t worry! Music and Mindfulness will return in September. We will keep you updated as soon as we know the exact days and times.

Here’s a look at the exciting programming we have going on this month:

  • Join Silver Screeners for popcorn and a movie followed by a discussion with a volunteer from Scarecrow Video. This month’s movie will be Moonrise Kingdom. Moonrise Kingdome is set on an island off the coast of New England in the 1960s, as a young boy and girl fall in love they are moved to run away together. Various factions of the town mobilize to search for them and the town is turned upside down – which might not be such a bad thing.
  • John will be back with two tech classes this month. On Friday, July 12th at 10am he will teach a class called Simplify Your Smartphone. Here you’ll learn how to organize your smartphone to make it easier to navigate. We will discuss how to delete apps, turn off notifications, and generally simplify your device. On July 26th at 10am he’ll teach Smartphone Tips and Tricks. Join us and learn some useful tricks on your smartphone. We will show helpful touchscreen motions to navigate your device, tips to save time and reduce frustration, and figure out what all those symbols and icons are.
  • The Dementia Action Collaborative will be holding a Legal Planning Clinic on Monday, July 15th by appointment. At this clinic you can get free one on one help with an attorney for legal matters such as Powers of Attorney for Finances, Powers of Attorney for Health Care, Health Care Directives, and Dementia Directives. To make an appointment please contact Jill at 425-780-5589. Space is limited and an appointment is required.
    • Staff from the Lake City Farmers Market will be holding a discussion on July 15th at 1:30pm. They will talk about how to use your food assistance benefits at the market, including EBT/SNAP and the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program benefits at the market. They will demonstrate how to use your FMNP card with vendors, the Senior FMNP phone app, explain the new EBT/SNAP Produce Rewards system at the market, as well as share upcoming events happening at the Lake City Farmers Market.
  • We will be partnering with the Seattle Public Library to hold a Civic Coffee Hour July 22nd at 1:30pm to discuss Brain Health. Join us to learn from experts and gain valuable insights into maintaining and improving your cognitive health. There will also be snacks and coffee for this event!
  • Join us for a special presentation from The Arc of King County. Join us at Lake City Seniors for a special training by The ARC of King County. We will learn how biases impact our words and the way people with disabilities are treated. If you have a disability, or know, love, and work with people with disabilities, you don’t want to miss this event. Bring your questions and an open mind as we explore better ways to show up for our friends and neighbors. Everyone is encouraged to participate. Together, we can create a more inclusive and supportive community.
    • Topics include:
      • Disability rights as Civil rights
      • Respectful language
      • The different forms of disability
      • The models of disability

Please note that we will not hold Mahjong on July 29th to help facilitate this event.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the program! For more information on our programming, calendar, and lunch menu, please follow the links to the right.
