Relief Effort for Greenwood!
Today Green Lake Community Council Chairman Michael
Cornell presented a check for $500.00 to the Lee Harper, Executive Director
of Phinney Neighborhood Association for the Greenwood Disaster Relief
Fund to help businesses and employees affected by this week's huge gas
explosion in the heart of the historic, vibrant and important Greenwood
"Most of the businesses affected by the Greenwood explosion were local,
independent, non-chain, non-franchise businesses. Independent businesses
like these and the people who work there are big parts of the hearts and
souls of Seattle's distinct neighborhoods. We must support them," Michael
Cornell said. Insurance may be slow or reluctant to pay claims and may
not help employees who are out of work until their places of business
reopen. The Phinney Neighborhood Associate established the fund within
hours of the Wednesday morning explosion that leveled three businesses
and affected dozens of other neighborhood businesses and apartments.
Cornell and Green Lake Community Council have challenged other community
councils, neighborhood associations and chambers of commerce to match
or beat the donation from Green Lake. Checks for the relief fund can be
made out to Phinney Neighborhood Association with "Greenwood disaster
relief" in the memo, and sent to PNA-Greenwood Relief Fund, 6532 Phinney
Ave N., Seattle, WA 98103. Click

Lake Community Council
The Green Lake Community Council (GLCC) is an organization
dedicated to making Green Lake an even a better place for those of us
who live here, who work here and who visit here, through our involvement,
advocacy, sharing, and caring. That is our vision. See About
Us for our mission statement and current activities.
With the overwhelming popularity of our lake, many people
are concerned about maintaining the beauty and viability of the lake for
future generations. The Friends of Green Lake, which started out as a
part of the Community Council, are addressing the issues of algae, wildlife
habitat, and growth of plants like milfoil. See the Friends
of Green Lake home page for for more information about the Friends
of Green Lake activities.
