Two Dog Yoga Community Contra Dance this Saturday, November 17th

This Saturday, November 17th, Two Dog Yoga will host their annual Community Contra Dance with the popular duo, the Canote Brothers. And you are invited to come mingle with your neighbors and meet new friends.

The Cantone Brothers are identical twins that like to say they have "genetically matched voices." The brothers play the fiddle, banjo, ukulele and bring vintage American music that will make you tap your toes and want to get on the dance floor. For 13 years they were the sidekicks on National Public Radio's show Sandy Bradley's Potluck.

The event starts at 6 p.m. with a finger food potluck. The easy social dancing begins at 7 p.m. and continues until 8:30.

This fun, family event is open to all and raises money for the Two Dog Scholarship Fund via donations. The event also helps gather non-perishable food to benefit the local food bank. So please bring something to donate.

We hope to see you there!

Truck stolen from Fred Meyer parking lot

A truck was stolen from a member of our community on Thursday night during a trip to Fred Meyer. The truck was taken from the Fred Meyer parking lot.

It is a black 1994 Nissan, license plater B61438S. There is an 80s "Magic Happens" sticker on the rear bumper.

If you see the truck please call 911. 

UPDATE:  The truck was found by Seattle Police in Wallingford, with "very little damage," said the owner. "A big thank you to everyone in the hood who was on the lookout. I appreciate your support."

Flags damaged on Veterans Day

A previous post here on Douglas Park Cooperative thanked the Lake City Lions Club for their work hanging flags around the neighborhood on Veterans Day.

We later found out from the Lions Club that two of the flags hanging on Elliott Bay Brewery were ripped from their brackets and damaged at some point during the day.

The group puts up the flags at sunrise on federal holidays and takes them down at sunset.

When they returned to Elliott Bay to gather the flags on Veterans Day all that remained were broken brackets on the side of the building. The two flags were later found but the eagles on top of the poles were smashed and the wire holding the flags to the poles was damaged.

"This was the first time we every had anything like that happen," said a member of the organization.

Thanks to veterans, volunteers, those that give to community

On this Veterans Day we thank and remember all that serve their community in a multitude of way:  Military members, teachers, police officers, social workers, firefighters, medical workers, volunteers.

We would also like to thank the Lake City Lions Club for hanging flags around our neighborhood, reminding us of this important day.

Flags are shown in the Lake City Mini Park
