Please Give Platelets, Or Blood, Soon!

Kirby Lindsay Laney
Please help spread the word!

Please help spread the word!

Bloodworks Northwest has reported that, due to heavy usage at area hospitals the local platelet supply has dropped 56% since Monday, June 20th.  Your help is needed to bring this supply back up – and ensure the survival of trauma victims and chronically ill patients right now!

Please consider donating blood or platelets now.  To make an appointment, or find out about your eligibility, call 1-800-398-7888 or visit the Bloodworks Northwest scheduling portal.

Even if you cannot give, please help spread the word about this vital need.  During summer vacations, donors don’t give as regularly yet the demand often increases due to our active lives and the on-going need of friends and family suffering due to a variety of illnesses.

Thank you for sharing!

Please Share Your Ideas At The Sunday Market On The Ernst Park Expansion In Downtown Fremont

Kirby Lindsay Laney

800pxErnstParkExpansionInputJun16This Sunday, June 26th, from 11a – 1p, the Seattle Department of Parks & Recreation has invited our community to give input on the design for the public land acquired by the City, in 2010, as an expansion of the A.B. Ernst (Slippery Slope) Park, next door to the Fremont Branch Library.

At the Fremont Sunday Market, meet Seattle Parks Planners and landscape architects from Site Workshop, and share your ideas for what we need done with this property.  See the design options available, and give your input – along with the other visitors to the Market this Sunday.

The Park Expansion, located at 719 N 35th St, will be the park closest to the center of the Center of the Universe.  Fremonsters need to tell Seattle Park staffers and architects what would most benefit our community, for now and into the future, at this site.  Funding for the development of this park is provided by the Seattle Park District.

Please take time, even if only for a few minutes, to step into the Seattle Parks’ Open House Tent at the Sunday Market this week and share your ideas.  Also, spread the word and help get others involved, by inviting others to the Open House, sharing the link to the Park Expansion survey, and participating in the Pinterest site hosted by Site Workshop.

For more information on the Ernst (Slippery Slope) Park Expansion, visit the Parks website or contact Karimah Cooper Edwards at 206/233-0064 or

Come join the FNC, and advocate for area residents.

Come join the FNC, and advocate for area residents.

Fremont residents, and all Fremont Neighborhood Council (FNC) members, are encouraged to attend the June 27th FNC meeting, starting at 7p at Doric Lodge #92.  Throughout the meeting, our community will be given opportunities to learn about area projects and give feedback on what we want for Fremont, and our Neighborhood Council.

In addition to brief reports on the most recent neighborhood clean-up, organized by Patrick Place residents, the Fremont Solstice celebrations, and the Neighborhood Night Out on August 2nd, the FNC will be discussing:

  • The Seattle Draft Freight Master Plan – after a preview at the May FNC meeting, hear from Seattle Department of Transportation staffer Gabriela Vega about the Plan, and give your input.  Public comment on the Draft ends July 8th, and the Draft can be reviewed on the Transportation website.
  • Potential FNC Projects In 2016 – Give feedback on which proposed project on a list already created the FNC should dedicate time, energy and funds – and where you might be interested in volunteering.  Come see what we can do to keep Fremont fabulous!
  • Election Season – Voice your ideas on how the FNC might get involved in getting the vote out through the August primary and the November election.  The FNC Board will be considering an endorsement on the Housing Levy vote.
  • H.A.L.A. – Hear more about these important potential policy changes, and getting the word out to your neighbors about land use changes, and housing opportunities, under the Housing Affordability & Livability Agenda.

The FNC wants to hear from residents, and to advocate on their behalf.  If you haven’t already joined the Fremont Neighborhood Council, visit the FNC website and find out how inexpensive – and enlightening – membership can be.  Also, learn more about the work of the FNC through the Facebook page.

See you on June 27th!

Starting August 1st, for two weeks, Mondays – Thursdays from 1:30p – 4p, CSz Seattle will provide a confidence-building Improv Summer Camp for kids ages 9 to 12.  The company that weekly entertains audiences through its Comedy Sportz shows at Atlas Theater, and offers Improv classes year ‘round, to adults, now has a summer class for the children among us.
