May 2023 Update

What did the spring say when it was in trouble?

May Day!!

It has been a much more eventful April than we anticipated! In case you missed it, there was a fire at Lake City Community Center, which significantly disrupted our programming. The response from fire fighters was quick and thankfully no one was hurt in the incident. However, the damage to the building is quite extensive and the community center has now been permanently closed as a result.

We have been fortunate to land on our feet. As many of you know, the Lamb of God Lutheran Church has been a great community partner during the pandemic, and they’ve kindly offered us the use of their space indefinitely. From now on, programming will take place at the Lamb of God Lutheran Church.

We want to thank everyone for being so understanding and adaptable during this transition. If anyone has any questions or concerns about the Lake City Seniors program going forward, please reach out to Kate, Akira, or Justin. Any of us would be happy to hear from you.

A reminder that Memorial Day is Monday May 29th so we will not hold any programming that day. There will also be no meals served so please plan accordingly.

  • On Wednesday May 10th we will hold an art activity to commemorate the Lake City Community Center starting at 1pm. Please join us to create a mural and share memories of the good times the Community Center gave us. All materials will be provided.
  • John will once again hold two computer 101 classes. This month the first will be Passwords 101 on May 12th. In this class you can learn the basics of passwords and how they work. We will discuss how to make your passwords more secure and tips for keeping yourself safe. The second will be Password Management 101 on May 26th. In this class you’ll learn how to simplify the process of logging into online accounts. We will discuss how to use a password manager to make it easier to keep track of all of your passwords.
  • On Friday May 19th at 10am we’ll have Adrienne Bousquet out for a workshop on how to downsize your home. Adrienne Bousquet is a home organizer and owns Spruce, a business dedicated to unique residential services. During this free workshop, she’ll be diving into stories and details surrounding the life transitions that seniors face and how their “stuff” plays into it. Join in to talk about downsizing, staying organized, and the legacy of your treasured belongings.
  • Annie will now be offering massage therapy once a month with a recommended donation amount of $15 per massage. The first day will be Wednesday May 10th and is by appointment only. Contact Justin by calling 206-707-1865 or by emailing to schedule your appointment.

We want to thank everyone once again for your support and flexibility these past few weeks. It has been a challenging time, but it has proven how resilient we are as a program and as a community. We look forward to seeing you at our new home.
