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.
We are still making lunch deliveries to the Lake City area. If you or someone you know can not make it to the Lamb of God Lutheran Church 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.
- May 2023 Update
What did the spring say when it was in trouble?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

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!
