Thank You for Attending the LCC Annual Holiday Party

Greetings neighbors, we’d like to thank all of those who attended the Leschi Community Council’s Annual Holiday Party at the Central Area Senior Center on Saturday, Dec. 4.  We had an overwhelming turnout with a large representation from the Leschi Elementary PTA and the Baker Learning Center.  The Leschi Elementary choir performed a selection of Christmas carols that brought smiles to our faces and warmth to our hearts!  The student choir opened the festivities and many, along with their families, stayed through the evening.  There was a wonderful selection of food for sharing as well as a raffle with local prizes, quilt making and a violinist. 

Thank you again for making this such a fun-filled evening full of bonding with one another.  We look forward to seeing you all for other events in our area.

40 lb. Raccoon

Ok, so I’ve spotted a 40 lb. raccoon (weight is an estimate – but it’s HUGE) walking around my block for the last couple of weeks.  In fact, the raccoon must have a den somewhere close, because it is in my background, as well as those of my neighbors daily.  He/she comes out so often at night, that my friends are afraid to approach my house (very dimly lit walkway). 

I’ve been in contact with the City and County animal control departments and they don’t remove wildlife.  Looks like I’ll have to hire a trapper to come out and get it/them.  I’m curious if anyone else near 28th Avenue South (I live between Lane and Dearborn) is having the same problem.  If so, would you be interested in sharing the cost for a trapper to come out to our neighborhood?
