The 2020 Spring Newsletter is Here!

This past week, the Shore Club Publishing Team completed the task of emailing out the 2020 Spring Newsletter! If your Shore Club membership is currently in an active status, you should have already received a copy at your preferred email address. 


If you hadn’t receive a copy yet, then one of the following conditions may to you:
  • I am a current member but have not been receiving any Shore Club notices 
  • I am a current member who has changed their email address
  • I am no longer current but would like to reinstate my membership 
If any of the above applies to you, please consider completing the ALSC Membership and Events Form, be sure to include a correct email address and any payment or special instructions if applicable and send it via snail mail into the PO Box listed.

And for those of you who may have recently moved inside our Angle Lake boundaries and would like to consider becoming a member of the Shore Club, please send us an email requesting a visit from our Welcoming Committee to receive more information about Club Membership benefits and to receive a packet of valuable discounts available from local area businesses.

A Copy of the Newsletter may also be accessed HERE.

Connect With Your Elderly Neighbors During COVID-19 Crisis

Check-in on them, by phone or in person, to ensure their essential needs are being met.

The threat of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is impacting lives worldwide, and although it may not yet have reached your neighborhood directly, you can expect that it may in the coming days or weeks.

One of the most impacted groups by this pandemic that cannot be ignored is the elderly in our community and it’s important to ensure every one of them has a strong support system – neighbors helping neighbors.


We’re asking that all ALSC Members please consider checking in on your homebound seniors to see what you can do to help this most vulnerable population in your neighborhood. Obviously taking care of ourselves is number one, but the other thing we can do is reach out to the seniors we know around us and see what extra help they might need right now.  The impact of COVID-19 could mean that their care worker is under the weather and can’t provide help. It could mean that their adult children, who would normally help them, aren’t feeling well and can’t help them. It may mean that they really shouldn’t be in crowded situations… where somebody else could go do their grocery shopping for them.

Your ALSC Board recommends referring to the neighborhood directory and exchanging phone numbers with your neighbors (if you don’t already have them in your speed dial!) and keeping in contact with each other via phone or text.

While the COVID-19 virus is recognized as a crisis, it is events like this that tend to galvanize communities; where we can expect neighbors to make an effort and take time to rally around each other and get through this pandemic together.

The effect on seniors being shut in and not getting what they need is devastating. The potential of experiencing that condition today is great. We are going to see a lot more seniors needing help with things. If you are healthy, continuing to adhere to frequent hand washings and observing the recommended social distancing, then we urge you to consider offering help and support to your senior neighbors until the threat is removed.

Dates Confirmed. Changes Pending.

Introducing your 2020 Angle Lake Shore Club Board!
Back Row L-R: Debbie; Steve; Sandy; Lonnie; Marge; Tani Rae
Front Row L-R: Jim; Fuzz; Nancy; Kari; Drew; Judy
Not Pictured: Susan; Kerry
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.
