Angle Lake Family Resource Center Holiday of Hope

The holidays are a good time for reflection – 

Thanksgiving is a great time to give pause to be thankful for all that we have, and Christmas is a wonderful time to give and share our gifts with others in need. And now, is the perfect time of the year for our annual Holiday of Hope fundraiser to benefit our less fortunate SeaTac residents during this magical season.

Angle Lake Neighborhood Representative Patricia Morinelli won’t be organizing an evening get together for Holiday of Hope this year, but it is her hope that you will still consider making a generous donation to this great cause. Please message Patricia via facebook if you have any questions and please share this message with all your friends and neighbors! 

The following is a copy of the letter received from the Holiday of Hope organizer, Amy Lloyd Wagner:

The Resource Center has made giving even easier. You can use the following link to make an online donation to the cause:

Drug Take Back!

Saturday, October 26 
10:00 AM—2:00 PM 
SeaTac City Hall Lobby 

The City of SeaTac Police Department and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration will provide the public with an opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous drugs. 
  • Controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter substances accepted 
  • Only pills and patches accepted—no liquids, needles, or sharps 
  • This program is free and anonymous—no questions asked or requests for identification 
Participants may dispose of medication in its original container or by removing the medication from its container and disposing of it directly into a disposal box. If an original container is submitted, the individual should be encouraged to remove any identifying information from the prescription label by either removing the label or utilizing a permanent marker.

Why Consider a Drug Take Back Sage Disposal Program?
  • Safe disposal to reduce drug abuse. Prescription drug abuse is the fastest-growing drug problem in the country.  In Washington state, almost 11% of teens use medicines for non-medical reasons – a rate that’s among the highest in the nation. The abuse of medicines by teens often results in medical emergencies or fatal overdoses. Most abusers of medicines, including teens, get the drugs from a friend or relative, often without their knowledge and not from a drug dealer.  A safe medicine take-back program gets potentially dangerous leftover drugs out of our homes.
  • Safe disposal to reduce accidental poisoning. Unwanted medicines left in the home endanger our children, seniors, and pets. Poisonings from prescription and over-the-counter medicines are increasing. About half of the 37,000 phone calls to the Washington Poison Center concern young children who have been poisoned by medicines found at home. Getting rid of unwanted medicines at a take-back program is an important part of being safe at home.
  • Safe disposal to reduce medicines in the environment. Large amounts of medicines go unused or are expired and the way we dispose of them makes a difference for our waters and our environment. For years the advice was to flush our drugs or mix them with kitty litter and throw them in the garbage. Flushing drugs send them directly into our waters, harming the environment. Drugs thrown in the garbage are available for others to take and use and can still get into the environment. Returning medicines to a take-back program is the only environmentally sound method for disposing of unused medicines.

It's Scary to Think It's Nearly Halloween!

Since things change – kids grow to be adults; kids come and go as their parents move around; parents become grandparents; etc. – now may be a good time to check for awareness about our upcoming annual Halloween event and plan for any change in stops.

The Boo Cruise Spooktacular is scheduled for Sunday, October 27th from 3:30 until 5:00 PM. This is an opportunity for costumed Boos and Ghouls to trick or treat lakeside. The Boo Crew will travel once around the lake stopping at docks where trick-or-treaters are gathered. Gift bags containing small treasures and treats will be presented to the children.  

If you would like to ensure a stop at your dock, please contact Kerry Steinke no later than October 20th to plan a time within the schedule.

All residents and their guests are welcome to participate. 

I Spy Through My Camera's Eye...

If it has been suggested to you before that you ought to be in pictures – you might find that you’re already there!  
A collection of pictures from our two popular summer events has been uploaded and posted to the Angle Lake Shore Club photo archives. The albums contain images from the 4th of July and the ever-popular Tasty Tapas with both events featuring many of our neighbors and their guests. You are welcome to download and share with your family and friends.

Also note, the Manor Club has recently revamped and bolstered their photo archives as well. Neighbor Val V. has been the driving force behind the upgraded archive which also features many photos including video montages created by Val!

Through the many photo albums from either web site, you can relive each of those precious moments again – or see what fun you’ve missed!
