Many Queen Anne residents will be taking the short stroll down the slope to Seattle Center to enjoy Winterfest. Bring your ice skates for the rink at Fisher Pavilion. Christmas caroling, ice-sculpting and numerous other musical performances will be happening throughout the holiday season. You can even have your child operate a model train through a turn of the century village! Most events started November 25 and will run until the end of the year.
As stated in the flier: “In a World Cafe format, you will have the opportunity to explore community
priorities: what should we prioritize? What should we keep doing? What should we
stop doing? What can you do? Talk with Parks & Rec staff and neighbors about
your ideas to build community relationships.”
If you are interested in supporting the community center and influencing the
services it will continue to provide, the meeting is Nov. 8 @ 7pm. Light snacks
and babysitting. Call 386-4249 for more info.”
