On Monday, April 24th, at 7p, at Doric Temple #92, the Fremont Neighborhood Council (FNC) will host its Annual Membership Meeting, with election of its Board of Directors and special guest speaker, District #6 City Councilmember Mike O’Brien.  In addition, the FNC will also take time to acknowledge the great contributions of Department of Neighborhoods Community Engagement Coordinator Karen Ko, as she is relocated to another area of Seattle, and welcome our new city liaison, Laurie Ames.

Councilmember O’Brien represents Fremont, west of Aurora Avenue, as well as Ballard, Greenwood and Blue Ridge.  Current Chair of the Seattle City Council Sustainability (Land Use) & Transportation Committees, O’Brien has spent seven years on the Council and considers environmental and social justice issues his primary concerns.  Please bring your questions, concerns and comments to this meeting, to share with the Councilmember (who lives in Fremont,) and your other neighbors.

The FNC will also share updates on on-going neighborhood projects, hear committee reports and welcome any new business area residents want to share, before the meeting adjourns at 8:30p.  The FNC advocates on behalf of the residents of Fremont, and that requires residents to share their concerns with this non-profit, all volunteer organization.  Find out more about the FNC through the website, on Facebook, or by attending this meeting on April 24th at 7p at Doric Lodge #92.

Continuing its support of wine makers that use fewer chemicals, and more natural and organic processes, Vif Wine | Coffee will be hosting a ‘Meet the Makers: A Happy Hour Natural Wine Tasting’ on Wednesday, April 26th from 5:30p – 8p.

Meet wine producers from three great French estates:  Yves Leccia of Domaine Leccia, Eric Chevalier of Domaine de L’Aujardiere and Yves Laboucarie of Domaine de Fontsainte.  All representatives will be pouring a selection of their estate wines, along with sharing stories of life as a wine producer.  Taste the wines, ask questions, grab a snack, and have fun!  The tasting fee is $10, and tickets will be sold in advance at Vif or at 206/557-7357.

It recently became easier to stop at Vif for fine wine and coffee, and exceptional food, as the café now opens on Mondays as well, from 7a – 4p.  Wine enthusiasts can also stop by Vif on Saturday afternoons, from 1p – 3p, when the cafe hosts a weekly Natural Wine Tasting.  Find out more details on the Vif Wine | Coffee website.
