Columbia Citizens' WikLi


your Wikli-fix: synchronicity

Call it coincidence or the confounding confluence of Columbia City's collective unconscious, but somehow just about everything happens this week on December 1st. Don't miss this: there might never again be a calendrical equivalent. Because hey, our community calendar may not reflect certain Mayan enddates, but this might be your last chance…


Live locally.

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

banquet of poems: a reading by author Nellie Wong

The award-winning Bay Area poet's fourth book, Breakfast Lunch Dinner, serves up the flavors of Oakland's Chinatown, infused with heart and spiced with a workingclass feminist attitude. Saturday December 1, 2012. A reception, featuring an Asian fusion appetizer buffet begins at 6pm, followed by the reading at 7pm.

The reading is at New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave. S, in Columbia City.

free tax prep returns to Columbia City

The Rainier Community Center will host a free tax preparation site again this year through United Way of King County's Free Tax Prep Campaign. Community members will be able to get their taxes done, claim all credits they are eligible for, sign up for additional benefits and services, and enjoy excellent customer service — all with the help of our wonderful volunteers!

If you'd like to join the volunteer team and help hard-working South Seattle families keep more of what they earn, United Way is looking for volunteers to commit to a weekly shift from January 15 – April 15 to help with tax preparation, interpretation, and public benefits access.

pediatric clinic in the Rainier Valley

HopeCentral Pediatrics and Behavioral Health is preparing to open a pediatric and behavioral health primary care practice in Rainier Valley in 2013. Some of you may have participated in an initial survey we conducted about a year ago (when we had a different name). As we get closer to opening, we wanted to do another round of research on some of the key features of our plan.

Please take 5 minutes to complete our Google survey. Thank you!

Rate your space at a neighborhood walking audit

Actively engage in making your community safer and more walkable by participating in a Feet First walking audit. Help us collect a diverse range of voices to give feedback on how you feel about walking around your neighborhood, and what you would like to see change for the better.

These walking audits will identify safety hazards, maintenance issues, and other deficiencies in the pedestrian environment. For example, a wheelchair user might use the app to identify a broken sidewalk that poses a barrier to them, or a parent might show a hazardous crossing of a busy street their kids must use to get to school.

The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook

Want to learn about Asian homecooking from different cultures and discover and taste authentic Asian ingredients? Join author Patricia Tanumihardja for a fun afternoon at the Columbia Library. Saturday, December 1, 2-4pm

Patricia Tanumihardja didn't really know either of her grandmothers but researching and writing The Asian Grandmothers Cookbook — Home Cooking from Asian American Kitchens more than made up for this childhood void. The ensuing compendium comprises 130 recipes spanning over a dozen Asian cultures, many never seen in print before, and lovely little anecdotes. Pat will share her experiences researching, interviewing, and recipe-testing for her cookbook as well as share tips on gathering family recipes and compiling them into a family cookbook.
