Bringing Hope to Children in Need

Holiday of Hope organizers reach out to the community each year with an invitation to join together with friends and neighbors for joyous evening of fun, entertainment and sharing.  
Bring your caring and generous spirit, along with your delightful personalities and if you dare, your most brilliant singing voice, to the annual Holiday of Hope event. The evening will feature karaoke, raffle prize drawings and an opportunity to bring a little extra joy to children who suffer from less fortunate circumstances during this holiday season.

The goal is to collect unwrapped children’s toys valued around $25 each (no stuffed animals please) or gift cards to Ross; Old Navy; Kohl’s; or Game Stop. Cash donations are also welcomed and appreciated. 

December 1st, 2017
7:30 until 10:00 PM
Gregory’s at the Red Lion Hotel
18220 International Blvd, SeaTac

If you are not able to attend the event in person but would still like to give, please contact Patricia at p.morinelli@pipeline.com for additional options to contribute via online giving or information on how to deliver donations direct to the Angle Lake Resource Center.

For additional details, please see the event FLYER.

No Location. No Party.

It is with regret that the ALSC Board announces to the community that our annual Members Christmas Party is at risk of being canceled. Quite simply, we are approaching the critical date for a binary decision:  Have the party or not.

The reason? Although a ton of effort has been invested to locate a member homeowner willing to open their home to host the party, success has not yet been found.

The Christmas Party Committee is now verifying to see if either the Des Moines Field House or the Normandy Park Cove may be available for lease on December 2nd. If neither one of these two locations are available and no one else steps forward no later than November 17th, we will have no other choice than to cancel the party for 2017.

What does it take to host the party?

We’ve been averaging a total of about 80 guests, including the Shore Club Board Members. You are simply required to open your doors to our Christmas Party Team to load in and then Saturday morning the team will decorate and arrange as needed per the homeowner direction. Early Afternoon the caterers will show to set up, guests will arrive at 4 PM and are scheduled to leave by 8 PM (or later at the homeowners discretion). Most will be cleaned up that evening afterward else an hour or two will be needed Sunday to get every back into its original place and condition. 

As you may have noticed, very little involvement is required by the host family – a couple decisions and opening their doors a few times and that’s it!  The Christmas Part Team takes care of all the rest! Ensuring that everything is like it was originally when they leave.

If you would like to be considered as the 2017 location, please contact Julie Hill no later than November 17th. Else, refer to the blog for a final GO / NO GO decision to be posted.

What a Neat Treat to Meet the Peeps!

Not since 2006, over a decade ago since we last celebrated a completely dry Halloween on Angle Lake! Not just dry but uncharacteristically warm as well! The Boo Boat Cruisers were met not only with an amazingly temperate day but there were also over 80 costumed kids and family stationed at thirteen points around the lake waiting to be greeted.


Aboard the Spooktacular Boo Boat where the Ghoulie Brothers (Bruce Goulet as Friday the 13th Jason and Lonnie Goulet as Halloween’s Michael Myer) and by their side were their brides, PacMan Sandy and Day of the Dead Skeleton Annie. Annie Oakley (Julie Hill) was there to ‘shoot’ photos while Duck Dynasty (Fuzz Hill) was on hand to call the kids together. 

Cruise over to our ALSC Photo Album to view all the PICS captured during the event.

A sincere thank you to the ALSC team for the many efforts it takes to pull off an event like this. And thank you to the kids and their family who turned out, without you we wouldn’t be doing this! Thank you for your participation.

Search for the Next City Manager

The City Council has initiated a search for qualified replacement candidates, however there is still opportunity for the residents and business owners to help form a baseline list of key values, attributes and qualities to compare and measure applicant skills and experience against.
