Picture Perfect Lake Living

The committee resources responsible for the Horse “N Around Classic are busy ironing out the plans for the September 10th event, securing the location and thinking up a whole new set of games to challenge this year’s contestants. It’s sure to be another entertaining hit!  Have you registered you team yet? Better hurry, spots are filling up fast. Contact Judy Williams or Lonnie Goulet for further details.

But before we get too far ahead of ourselves – here’s an opportunity to look back at exciting times enjoyed through life on the lake! Our resident photographer TaniRae Standridge has recently shared a collection of photos the 4th of July and the Tasty Tapas. To view these photos simply click on the following hot links:

Volunteers Needed For Back To School Fair

The 5th Annual Back to School Resource Fair will be held at Valley Ridge Park in SeaTac on Aug. 18th, and Organizers are seeking additional volunteers to help out area kids.
While SeaTac is a city rich in diversity and culture, it continually ranks among cities with the highest poor health indicators along with the third lowest household income in King County with many families living below the poverty level.  Available services do not meet even the basic needs of residents in the areas of health, employment, attainable housing, and nutrition. Many households are immigrant families with children. Our local schools report that over 70% percent of students enrolled in the federal lunch program.  

The vision of the Back to School Resource Fair is to build support in the community that strengthens families and enhances the academic success of underserved youth, specifically to provide 1300+ students with the necessary school supplies to start school ready-for-success. 

WHEN: August 18, 2011 from 10:00am – 2:00pm
WHERE: Valley Ridge Park, located at 4644 South 188th Street
ATTENDANCE: Over 800-1000 families who live in and whose children attend school in SeaTac.

Pulling off an event of this size requires a lot of help. Organizers are seeking volunteers to help set up tents at 8:30am and tear down tents at 2:30pm and additional volunteers to help with back packs, cooking hot dogs, cleaning up the area all day to keep it nice for everyone. 

Your help would be greatly appreciated and please consider bringing a friend to help, too!

Deadline Wednesday, August 10th

Tasty Tapas Registration will close on August 10th or when the list of enrolled reaches the maximum 140 participants – whichever comes first!  Angle Lake Shore Club Members may purchase tickets for them and their guests by contacting Lonnie Goulet or Judy Williams.  

Tasty Tapas
