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.
- June 2022
A LOT has happened since our last newsletter. We have a bunch of new and returning programs, new folks at the center, and new partnerships and events.
Starting in June, our Digital Equity Coordinator, Jennifer will no longer be doing home visits. She will still be available by appointment in the center on her usual days.
We’ve started a new partnership with the Uheights Center. They’ll be hosting a weekly group on Thursdays at 10a on zoom where they’ll do memoir writing, book reading, and have conversations. You can find more information on that here.
They also will be hosting Zumba classes over Zoom and you can find that information here.
You can register for all of these classes on Uheights website, or you can get the zoom links sent directly to you by emailing email@example.com.
Footcare is back on June 6th. This is by appointment only. Email Justin at firstname.lastname@example.org for availability. We are working to find a better system for booking and getting on a more consistent schedule in the future so that we can meet everyone’s needs. Thank you for your patience in the meantime.
A reminder that we have a vaccination event coming up on Friday, June 10th. There is no registration required ahead of time, and it’s completely free. If you need more information on that, you can find it here.
There is, of course, so much more happening. Be sure to check out the Calendar for new programs and events. And keep an eye out here. We’re working on revitalizing our website to make it a better resource with the most up to date information.
We’re excited for the warmer weather and look forward to seeing you all this summer!

We will be hosting a vaccination event for 1st and 2nd booster shots on Friday June 10th from 10am to 2:30pm. Everyone 50 and older is now eligible for their second booster shot.
Vaccines and boosters are free, no insurance is required. Children and teens, ages 5 to 17 can get Pfizer ONLY. Adults, age 18 and older, can get Pfizer and Moderna. Everyone is welcome, regardless of immigration status.
There is no registration necessary for this event. Feel free to bring eligible family members and friends. Please bring your vaccination card if you have it as this will save you some time when you get here. If you do not have your card, or forget it, no worries! You will still be able to get your booster!
If you have any questions about eligibility for you or a family member, we have provided some links to the Washington state health department below.

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!
