Keep an eye on the ALSC blog for further details leading up to the date.

We hope that you’ll make time during this busy period to join for one or more of these entertaining events!  

Time is Running Out!

Not intending to pile on addition anxiety onto a heap of Black Friday hype, however your opportunity to take advantage of the $10 per person savings off regular priced ALSC Members Annual Christmas Party tickets is shrinking faster than department store gift inventories. 
Our evening will kick off at 4:00 PM with a meet and greet, while snacking on delicious hors d’oeuvres and enjoying cocktails and other beverages from our large selections of refreshments served up from our hosted bar by our extremely congenial and highly entertaining bartenders, Bruce and Sandy Goulet.

Club President, Lonnie Goulet will chair a short meeting at around 5:00 PM to introduce new members; elect officers; recognize outstanding volunteers and present the awards for Mr. and Ms. Christmas!  Immediately following the conclusion of the meeting guests will be welcomed to feast upon a delicious catered dinner by returning provider, Bakeman’s Restaurant – Voted as a 2010 Best Restaurant and 2011 Best Lunch Counter by Seattle Weekly and featured on KING TVs ‘Evening Magazine’!

More information will be available on the blog or will be provided by calling Julie at (206) 355-6404. 

It is in the Mail. really!

This past week, the Shore Club has completed the task of mailing out the Fall Newsletter and the Annual Member’s Christmas Party Invitations.  If you are a member who is in active membership status or a recently expired member, both mailings should have arrived to you per your preferred delivery method (either by way of snail mail or by email).  
If any of the following apply to you, please contact Judy Williams for assistance:
  • I am a current member but have not been receiving any Shore Club Mailings
  • I am a current member who would rather receive email instead of USPS mailings
  • I am a current member who has changed their email address
  • I am no longer current but would like to reinstate my membership 
If you live within our Angle Lake boundaries and would like to consider becoming a member of the Shore Club, please contact our Welcoming Committee to schedule a visit to receive more information about Club Membership benefits and to receive a packet of valuable discounts available from local area businesses.

THE Social Event of the Year!

The Angle Lake Shore Club Members Christmas Party will be held on Saturday, December 1st. Invitations were mailed out this past week and we are expecting a significant turn out again this year. To ensure the best experience possible, we are capping ticket sales to the first 100 members only.  If you plan to attend, we ask that you purchase tickets before November 24th

The Christmas Party is a great opportunity to visit with familiar neighbors, make new acquaintances, and share fun stories of the great times that were enjoyed during the various club events throughout this past year! We will be providing a delicious catered Gourmet Dinner with an open bar included in the discounted ticket price of just $30 per person.  Yes, you read that right...  An entire evening of socializing; delicious dinner; live holiday music and refreshments, all for only $30 each if purchased before November 24th.
After the 24th, tickets will be sold at the door for the regular price of $40 per person.

We will continue the tradition of voting for the couple that most represents Mr. and Mrs. Christmas. The definition is left open for the crowd to decide: Most Active Member; Longest Club Tenure; Most Congenial; More or all of the above – you help decide! You might choose to come dressed in your best interpretation of ‘Holiday Spirit’ and if you receive the most votes you’ll be awarded a valuable prize!

This is a private party for current Angle Lake Shore Club Members Only and their guests. If you are not currently an active member, no worries! We are accepting new and renewal membership applications with the purchase of your Christmas Party tickets. Membership enrollment form along with party times and location details are available by clicking here.

Should you have any remaining unanswered questions or if you’d like to assist with set up, clean up, decorating or general operations, please contact your volunteer hostess, Julie Hill at (206) 355-6460. Hope to see you all at the 2012 ALSC Christmas Party.  

Public Hearing November 6th

Zoning Request Impacts East Neighborhood
The Comprehensive Plan is the City’s “blueprint for future growth and development.” It consists of a future land use map, as well as goals and policies that provide guidance to the City as our area grows and changes to meet the challenges of a growing region. Amendments to the 2012 Comprehensive Plan are currently being considered, one of which impacts our neighborhoods on the east side of Angle Lake.

The property owner of the 19740 Military Road parcel (across the street from fire posts 28 through 31) has submitted a proposal to change the SeaTac Comprehensive Plan on this piece of land from the current zoning of UM-2400 Residential Medium Density to a UH-900 Residential High Density assignment stating the current designation does not support his plans for sighting a Convalescent Center/ Nursing Home and request for a 10 foot setback to permit a planned addition to the existing 5-unit apartment building instead of the current 20 foot requirement. 

While the owner’s motivation to develop this parcel into a revenue producing lot is understandable, area residents are against this proposed rezoning as it does not integrate well with the existing surrounding residential environment and will negatively impact property values and quality of life in the area.  Opposition also considers this move would not only place additional traffic on Military Road but would also increase street side parking demand to support extra staff and visiting guest vehicles.  Concern has also been raised over an increased change of accident potential created from vehicles entering/exiting a complex located in a limited sight distance area due to the existing roadway elevation changes and curves.

November 6: Open House 5:00 P.M.  Public Hearing; 6:00 P.M.  
Prior to the Council reaching any final determinations to changes in the Comprehensive Plan, the public will have an opportunity to attend an Open House to ask questions and receive further details on this or any of the other changes being proposed. A Public Hearing will be held immediately following the open house where anyone may comment on any of the amendments, and express support or opposition to them.  Comments may be provided verbally or in writing at the hearing.  Comment may also be provided in writing (regular mail or email) prior to the hearing, and should be addressed to:

Michael Scarey
City of SeaTac
4800 S. 188th Street
SeaTac, WA 98188
Or sent via email to

We encourage all impacted residents to make time to attend this meeting and communicate their opinions and concerns.
