A Hot Dog!

We are excited to announce that for the first time ever Lake City Seniors will have a spot in the Lake City Parade, which will be on August 5th, kicking off at 7pm. We are looking for volunteers to join us in the parade. We currently need at least 2 people who are willing to hold up a small banner with our logo and as many people who want can participate in the music and dancing or even driving in our van with us. We will provide water and snacks to anyone who shows up to participate. If you are interested in joining the parade, please contact Kate by calling 206-549-5026. You can also show up at the Lamb of God Church Saturday, August 5th at 5:30pm where we will meet before going to the parade.
