Welcome to Week 116

of the

Columbia Citizens' WikLi

Let's get together


your Wikli-fix: Everybody get together

C'mon people now… Everybody's pulling together this week, around music, spirits, politics, health, food, fitness, work, and fun.


Live locally.

Salsa dancing at the community center, Oktoberfest at the LSP community club, a neighborhood tweetup, and lots more.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

A Chinook Book, direct to your door

The Chinook Book is back! It's Seattle's guide to simple, approachable, affordable ideas for local living. As a coupon book, it's incredibly easy to use. I penciled it out — every year we save just under $100 without even trying.

Here's a sampling.

This is a great fundraiser for Graham Hill School, southeast Seattle's most integrated elementary. We're selling the book for $20, and the school gets $10 of that. Last year these sales helped us fund tutors, the Powerful Schools program, and busing for after-school programs.

May I sell you one? I'll bring it right to you. Let me know — moc.liamtoh|nalpttocs#moc.liamtoh|nalpttocs, 329-5912. Thanks.

Arts In Motion art fair

Saturday, October 2 — Try our musical instruments and art activities

This new school year, AIM is offering young artists and musicians exciting and inspiring lessons and classes, and opportunities for personal growth greater than ever before.

Saturday, from 12 noon until 2pm we are offering to young and old an Arts Fair free-of-charge where the residents of SE Seattle may try out various musical instruments or dabble in different artistic mediums, just to see how they like them.

Our Arts In Motion faculty members are experienced education professionals who can advise prospective students and families all about the art, lessons and available classes. You'll never know what it's like until you try.

Columbia City Tweetup

Come one, come all to the second Columbia City Tweetup this upcoming Sunday! We'll meet at 6pm, October 3rd @theBourbonBar at Columbia City Theater.

Anyone on the fence should know the first #ColumbiaCity tweetup was thoroughly enjoyed by all. But there's room for more! Come meet your neighbors and fellow tech geeks, and share some good chats and a few good laughs too, all while supporting a local business. :)
