|Dignity's St. Patrick's Day Brunch
Ten members and friends of Dignity enjoyed a splendid brunch at Julia's of Wallingford on March 17th. The food was worth waiting for following a short wait for a set of tables to seat ten. Much to share since our prior gathering at the Christmas Party in early December, and the Dignity/Seattle Jubilee dinner early February where all had a chance to share stories. Looking forward to meeting up real soon at one or more of a variety of Dignity activities these next couple of months including a Jubilee gathering, volunteer evening at Food Lifeline, and next quarter's brunch.
|Preparing cabbage for distribution
On the first Tuesday evening in February, Dignity/Seattle members and friends prepared several bins worth of cabbage for distribution to needy families in western Washington. During the little over 2 hour volunteer session our team enjoyed meeting and visiting with those from a church and a business organization. The work, if you call it that, was in removing the less appetizing outer leaves from heads of cabbage. Join us for the next volunteer opportunity on Tuesday, April 3rd.
|Dignity/Seattle's 2017 Christmas Party
Great food, wonderful friends, and Delia and Annah's beautifully decorated home and generous hospitality made for a memorable Christmas Party on Saturday, December 9th. No one left hungry as plenty of delicious ham, crockpot chicken, salads, potatoes, homemade bread, and much more led to a grand finale of Tish's (always from scratch) layered chocolate cake. A big thank you goes out to those contributing to this year's collection for Seattle's homeless encampments.
