Reminder: Greenwood Community Council to discuss Sound Transit 3, explosion site development plans on Tuesday

September 19th, 2016 by Doree

The Greenwood Community Council’s monthly meeting on Tuesday will have a presentation on the upcoming Sound Transit 3 package, to help voters understand the proposed projects, timelines and projected costs.

And a representative of Slattery Properties, which owns the property on the west side of Greenwood Avenue from North 84th to 85th streets, will discuss the company’s plans for rebuilding the Greenwood explosion site. Owner Mike Slattery told me at the Sept. 9 Phoenix Party that the company is tentatively planning a mixed-use building with two levels of below-ground parking, ground-floor retail, and housing on top.

The meeting is from 7-8:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Greenwood Library, 8016 Greenwood Ave. N.

Greenwood 4th graders’ well dedicated in Ghana

September 16th, 2016 by Doree

Last fall we told you about Josie Droz, then a third-grader at Greenwood Elementary, who raised $10,000 to construct a well in Ghana. Josie just started fourth grade, and her well is now installed at Kankun Primary School in the district of Nasena Nankana West.

At the end of second grade Josie began raising money for Water Access Now by holding lemonade stands and fundraising at neighborhood events, including the big May Artwalk. By the end of that summer she raised $5,000 with the help of her family and friends, and that was matched by a board member of Water Access Now, who was impressed with her work.

A Water Access Now team recently visited Ghana for the well’s construction and dedication.

School children help dedicate Josie's well.

Congratulations, Josie!

Greenwood musician Jaspar Lepak plays acoustic folk and Americana music as the opener for Tracy Grammer at Hale’s Palladium, 4301 Leary Way NW, from at 7 p.m. Sunday.

Jaspar Lepak is a folk/Americana songwriter whose remarkable gift for melody is only surpassed by her poetry. A child of the Sonoran Desert, her songs are deeply influenced by the many places she has called home: Tucson, Minneapolis, Durban, and currently Seattle. Sweeping across landscapes with an emotional depth that is extraordinary, her lyrics expose a brave vulnerability while her clear, pure voice touches the heart.

Lepak started writing songs in 2002 while living in Minneapolis. Between 2004 and 2009, she recorded five albums, and in the fall of 2009, she moved to Durban, South Africa with her husband Kale. Her music found an enthusiastic audience, and in 2011, she recorded FORGIVING WIND which Rolling Stone South Africa hailed as an album full of “beauty and original charm.” Lepak became a Seattle resident in 2012 and released her seventh recording, WIDE WORLD, in 2014. She tours frequently between her former homes and her new home in the Pacific Northwest, often accompanied by Kale (accordion and harmonies) and other friends she’s found along the way. Learn more at http://www.jasparlepak.com.

Tickets in advance are $15 (plus service charge), or $18 at the door.

Greenwood Food Resource Center halfway to goal of raising $3,000 for Hunger Action Month

September 15th, 2016 by Doree

FamilyWorks’ campaign to raise $3,000 for the new Greenwood Food Resource Center is about halfway to its goal, with two weeks left to go in Hunger Action Month.

The food bank is housed at the Salvation Army, at 9501 Greenwood Ave. N. It opened in April to help fill the gap when Volunteers of America’s Greenwood Food Bank closed.

So far, FamilyWorks, based in Wallingford but supporting projects in numerous neighborhoods, has raised $1,428. They’re hoping to raise $3,000, which will be matched by FamilyWorks Board Members and local businesses.

Chuck’s Hop Shop in Greenwood has donated a T-shirt, growler and one growler draft fill in support of the fundraising campaign. Anyone who donates to GFRC through the end of September will be entered into a drawing to win.

You can donate online here.

You can read a testimonial from a GFRC client on FamilyWorks’ blog.
