The board members gathered together for the first meeting on Monday, January 27th to confirm roles, responsibilities, assignments and event dates. We have achieved a commitment to all but three items:

Board Position of Secretary: Due to personal reasons, Drew will resign from his post effective March. The board is looking for a member to take up this position. The responsibility entails attending the periodic board meetings, taking and distributing notes of the meetings. Nothing more demanding than that.   

Newsletter Publisher: Another one of Drew’s amazing skills has been to take all the articles written by the board and assemble them into an outstanding electronic periodical. With Drew’s scheduled departure we would appreciate someone with mad computer publishing skills to step up to this challenge! The newsletter is produced three times a year and is assisted by a Copy Editor and Schedule Manager. Please consider extending your talents to the community in this manner.

Summer Event: Traditionally, August had hosted the Tasty Tapas Float Around. Always wanting to keep things fresh! Our Evil Geniuses are cooking up a new hot festive fun activity to serve up to the members of the Angle Lake Community during the late summer season. Watch for announcements in upcoming newsletters and on the blog.

MLK Holiday - Make It A Day On!

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer.  Citizens across the country will be coming together as volunteers to improve their communities. 


Looking for an easy way to volunteer with the family this MLK day? 
Join Doug and Phil (aka Dug=Fuzz Hill and Fill=Judy Williams) and the Green SeaTac Partnership for a fun morning of restoration! We’ll be removing invasive weeds to make room for trees and native plants to thrive in Angel Lake Park.

MLK Day Work Party
Angle Lake Park Nature Trail
Monday, January 20th
9:00am - 12pm

Everyone can help! All ages are welcome and no experience is necessary. All the necessary tools and training will be provided.  

Friends and family members are welcome but please RSVP for all members of your party to help us plan for a great event. To RSVP for this event, please contact mcooper@forterra.org

What to Bring: A water bottle, a snack if you want one, and tough clothes, and shoes that can get dirty (because they will!), including long pants and a long-sleeved shirt to protect against prickly blackberry. Closed-toed shoes are required: work boots, hiking boots, or running shoes are all fine. Remember to check the weather and bring appropriate layers and rain gear or sun protection as needed.

Your help is appreciated as we work to remove invasive plants, undergo light clean up and beautify the park. Not only is this service project beneficial to our environment, but it lets you spend some time in nature, which is healthy for your mind, body, and spirit.

Santa's Christmas Cruise Photos!

Just in time for the holidays, photos from the Santa Cruise are here, available for you to share with your friends and family!


Santa and his elf helpers visited over 75 kids at a total of 10 stops around Angle Lake including the Mobile Home Park and for the first time, 15 children from the Landing Apartments. At each of these stops, our neighbor Jennifer Marcum captured some fantastic photos of the children and their families enjoying their special visit with Santa. 

The trip this year was an extra memorable one for Santa. He was able to stop by and pay his respects to a recently departed close friend on the lake, Russ Austin. His tribute was to set a lake flare ablaze on a wooden float similar to what Russ has been noted for supporting every year for the Angle Lake Fourth of July Fireworks. Other special moments were the children gathered at the Louvier’s dock greeting Santa with a joyous chorus of Christmas Carols.

According to ALSC President, Lonnie Goulet, this was the best outing in the 8 years the cruise has been operating. “The gal at the Landing Apartments was the most pleasant surprise.” Lonnie commented, “You ask me what the difference was this year that got the kids to turn out and my answer is simple. It was the extra effort put in this year by both Diane at the Mobile Home Park and Ashley at the Landing Apartments. They took the extra time to go door-to-door and get people committed to showing up to meet Santa.” 

As you’ll see from the photos taken, it was a good turn out and evident that all involved had a great time.  And with that, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a truly joyous New Year!
