Reaching out to help…

If any of you know of anyone who needs help.. suffering from depression, drug, or alcohol addiction or other serious mental or emotional problem, I’d like to point out some easy to access resources.

There as a weekly AA meeting right here at the marina, offering support and fellowship for those who would like to stop drinking or using. Stop by the marina conference room any Monday morning from 7 to 8 am and check it out.

The King County Crisis Line 866-4-CRISIS is a great resource if a person needs immediate help. They can help with any problem small or large.

If we see any of our neighbors suffering please reach out to them and help them find help before something serous happens.

If you’d like to talk to someone in confidence, you can feel free to contact me at 206-979-9016.

Opening Day at Montlake Cut-May 6th

Published by under Shilshole Neighbors

The Seattle Yacht Club has put on an Opening Day of Boating Season Parade since 1920.  It’s a great event to take the family to and sit along the Montlake Cut or, take your boat in and tie to the log boom on the north side or anchor in the south-side viewing area!  In the morning are the Windermere Cup crew races.  The boat parade is from noon to 3.  Since the Cut is closed Sat. til after the parade, most boaters arrive Thur or Fri to get a spot and stay til Sunday to come home. It’s quite a show at the locks as they all lock through trying to leave the lake Sat eve or Sunday!
