Community Gardening Day

Saturday, May 11, 9 AM – 1 PM

Spring has sprung and so have the weeds!  We have put a call out to community members to work alongside Village volunteers on this day to garden for our Village members.  This is your chance to help spread the word about the Village and encourage your friends and neighbors to volunteer.  Are you available to help out on this day?  Please let us know.  The more volunteers we have on board, the more members we can help! If you’re a full member in need of gardening help, please call or email the village.  We will either help you on this day or on another day soon.  Please RSVP for Community Gardening Day at [email protected] or 206-789-1217.

Village Summit

Saturday, May 18, 2 – 5 PM

Greenwood Senior Center

We hope you’ll join us for the 2nd annual Village Summit.  Please arrive in time to start promptly at 2 PM.  The Summit will provide a chance to reflect on the state of the Village now and to make plans for the future, through large and small group discussions. We encourage all members and volunteers to attend.  It’s your Village!  Remember, if you’re a full member, you can request a ride with one of our amazing volunteers! Your rsvp is appreciated but not required at 206-789-1217 or [email protected]. We will not have a potluck since this does not align with “meal” time.  However, we will have lots of homemade treats to give you energy!  If you’d like to make cookies or brownies for the Summit, please let us know!

Village at the Rainbow Hop

Saturday, June 1

The Village will have space somewhere along Greenwood Ave (sorry, don’t know the location yet!) helping kids make rainbow ribbon wands and hosting a dance party! We need your help!  We have 2 shifts available – 10:15 to noon (includes setup) and noon to 1:45 (includes clean up). Let us know if you would like to help out and which shift you would prefer at [email protected] or 206-789-1217.

The Drowsy Chaperone at Shoreline Community College

Winner of five Tony Awards, including Best Book and Best Original Score, The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz Age musical, featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another. With the house lights down, a man in a chair appears on stage and puts on his favorite record: the cast recording of a fictitious 1928 musical. The recording comes to life and The Drowsy Chaperonebegins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight.

If you’d like to attend with a group of Village members and volunteers, please contact Ronni at [email protected]. Village Members, Volunteers, friends: $10/ticket. No service charge!

Village Supper Club

Meets monthly for lunch or dinner

2 Village Supper Clubs are in full swing and we are currently forming the 3rd.  Please let us know if you’re interested in joining a group.  Each group is self-governing – choosing dates, times, and locations that work for the group.  Please email or call if you’d like to join the next group.  Each group is capped at about 10 members and volunteers.  It’s a great way to get to try local restaurants while getting to know others in the Village.  [email protected] or 206-789-1217.
