Small Change, Big Difference

Earth Day is a single day reserved each year on April 22nd for citizens of the United Stated to consider making a change of habit which when combined with other like minded individuals will ultimately introduce big benefits to the environment around them.  

Earth Day has come a long way since its founding in 1970 when slurping leaded gas through massive V8 sedans was commonplace; where industry belched out smoke and sludge with little fear of legal consequences or bad press; a time when air pollution was commonly accepted as the smell of prosperity and “Environment” was a word that appeared more often in spelling bees than on the evening news.

Over the years since 1970, millions have found ways to express their environmental commitments through Earth Day. What can you do for Earth Day? The answer is: anything that is meaningful to you and for the environment! Things you can do on your own to celebrate Earth Day include:
  • Plant a tree in your yard.
  • Pick up litter in your neighborhood.
  • Expand your home recycling program.
  • Use cloth reusable grocery bags
  • Turn off lights when you leave a room
  • Turn off the water while shaving or brushing your teeth
  • Use public transportation for at least one week
  • Deposit unused household hazardous wastes at a local recycling facility
Local Organized Earth Day Activities
The City of SeaTac will be celebrating Earth Day on Saturday, April 21 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM with activities in North SeaTac Park and the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden. Join Neighbors Without Borders Action Committee in removing ivy from trees west of the SeaTac Community Center or join the cleanup party in the botanical garden.  Tools will be provided.  Please bring your own gloves. 

Easter Bunny Is Coming To Town!

Our latest neighbors on the lake and new Shore Club members, Rosy and Nick Zylkowski had contacted the Blog Team last night with an idea to share with the community to celebrate the upcoming Easter Holiday.

If you have small children at home or will have grandchildren visiting on Easter Sunday – please take note!

Nick and Rosy are planning to leave their home (formerly the Pascual house on Military Road at 19477) Sunday Morning around 8:30-ish by way of boat with a fully costumed Easter Bunny onboard! The goal is for the Easter Bunny to deliver goodies to the Partridge Kids over in the Manor. If you would like to have the Easter Bunny to come pay your family a visit to your dock on Sunday Morning, please contact the Zylkowski’s via email (poobear439@gmail.com) to arrange for a meeting and inform them with a count of how many children will be present.

Please respond to the Zylkowski's no later than Saturday morning, April 7th by 9:00 am if you're interested in a visit.

Happy Easter!
