Welcome to the Lake City Seniors
Following the City of Seattle and the Governor Inslee’s most recent guidance we will not be requiring participants to wear masks starting April 6th. We HIGHLY encourage the continued use of masks but they are no longer required. If you would like a mask we will provide one.
To-go lunches are now offered at the Lake City Community Center. Please come in to grab a meal! There is some seating and it will be on a first come, first serve basis. Lunch will still be served from 12:30-1:30pm. We will eventually transition into full Community Dining, as before the pandemic, but we are uncertain about when that may be but we are hoping sometime in the next few months.
We are still making lunch deliveries to the Lake City area. If you or someone you know can not make it to the Lake City Community Center to pick up lunches we may be able to deliver lunches to them. Please fill out this form to be considered or leave a message at our office number 206-268-6738 and we will get back to you.

Which letter is the coolest?
We hope everyone is staying cool as the summer heats up.
This month we said goodbye to Jennifer. She has accepted a position at Swedish First Hill and her last day was July 22nd. We’re grateful for all that she has contributed and wish her well on her journey. She’ll be greatly missed.
Thankfully, your technology needs will still be taken care of with our new digital equity coordinator, John. John is joining the team to assist community members with technology resources and help troubleshoot technology issues. He studied Electrical Engineering and is experienced in solving all sorts of problems with computers, phones, and other devices. He knows tech can be frustrating and wants to help others feel more comfortable using their devices to connect with their community. John loves a good card game with friends and playing trumpet with the North Seattle jazz ensemble. He looks forward to learning how he can help you use tech to connect to the things that you love.
This month we have a multitude of new and continuing programs. The Knitting and Crocheting Social Hour is continuing every Wednesday from 11am-12:30pm. We have received more yarn and we now have crocheting hooks and knitting needles! If you have been interested in joining, but lack of materials has kept you away, come join the group! Everyone is welcome!
We are also excited to bring back Mahjong. This will be held every Wednesday and Friday from 1:00pm-2:30pm. We already have a good-sized group who informally started in late July, but now it’s official. Come get your Mahjong on!
John will also be holding technology help seminars starting this month. The first two planned will be Smartphone Help and Internet and Computer Help.
Wednesday, August 24th at 1:30pm: Smartphone Help – The goal of this class is to help you feel more comfortable using a smartphone. In this class we will go over resources available for discount smartphone and phone services, general tips for using your smartphone, and how to troubleshoot issues with your smartphone.
Wednesday, August 31st at 1:30pm: Internet and Computer Help – The goal of this class is to help you feel more comfortable using a computer and the internet.

Thank you all for your continued understanding and flexibility as circumstances continue to change. These last 2 years have been unpredictable, challenging, and full of uncertainty, and hopefully there is less uncertainty and difficulty ahead. However, throughout these difficult times, thanks to all of our partners, staff, and all of YOU, we have managed to create community and comradery via our programs and lunches. We are looking forward to a more socially engaging and accessible future for all of us!
