Beautiful Green Lake
The Green Lake neighborhood is a great place to work,
play, visit, and live. Green Lake businesses are thriving and popular
Green Lake restaurants serve delectable food that is lauded by food editors
and customers alike. Green Lake homes are in high demand. and Green Lake
Park is possibly the most popular park in the State of Washington.
Every day people from all parts of the city and county come to enjoy the
lake, the path, and the many activities available year-round. Our neighborhood
schools serve students from throughout the city and our library is one
of the busiest (indicating that it serves as a regional resource as much
as a neighborhood library) in the city. The old West Green Lake Beach
bathhouse now houses the Seattle Public Theater, an exciting resource
for quality entertainment and community participation.
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.

OUT OF THE DARKNESS
Walk to Prevent Suicide
When: Sun. Oct. 12, 2014
Check-in-Reg: 12-1 pm
Walk Begins: 1 pm
Where: Green Lake Park
It is estimated that over 57 million people struggle with mental illnesses
and the stigma that seems to loom over those illnesses. Every 14.5 minutes
in the US someone dies by suicide, every 15 minutes this loss creates
survivors to pick up the pieces, ask the unanswerable questions and find
a way to carry on.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is working to help
prevent suicide by improving our knowledge about suicide and mental illness
through research - to better understand why suicide occurs, what might
protect against suicide and how to more effectively identify and treat
people who are suicidal.
Many of us have either been and/or know people who have been impacted
by suicide. Washington state families lose over 900 people each year to suicide.
You are invited to WALK, VOLUNTEER, and DONATE at the Out of the
Darkness walk. For more information email Heather
Jameson, or click here for a printable poster
about the event and how you can help.
