|Annual Summer BBQ Picnic 2021
Sixteen members and friends enjoyed a long overdue summer picnic at Magnolia Park on Sunday, August 22, 2021. The quiet and peaceful setting was ideal for the many of us as we shared our stories of events since the onset of the Covid pandemic. The facilities were complete with running water in the shelter and restrooms just steps away in another building. As in previous years, Dignity/Seattle provided the burgers, dog, and buns while attendees contributed a wide assortment of salads, sides, drinks, and desserts. Paula L.
|Bread and Baked Goods for the Needy
Four Dignity/Seattle members joined with others in sorting a wide variety of baked goods into boxes of buns, bagels, sliced bread, desserts, assorted baked goods, etc. During the 2+ hour volunteer session 17 pallets were stacked with 10,420 pounds of bread and baked goods which is the equivalent of 8683 meals. Distribution began the following morning as the pallets were delivered to food banks and homeless shelters to feed those in need.
|Three King's Game Day 2020
Dignity/Seattle's second annual Three King's Game Day began at 2pm with a taco lunch provided by member Gerry Roling. Guest Jessica related her adventures on moving to Seattle. She also provided the fascinating game "Space Cats Fight Fascism" where in the year 3,000,000 space cats are waging a galactic rebellion against a rising tide of fascism and anti-cat bias. Unfortunately we Space Cats lost but those watching the Seahawk's game celebrated the Seahawk's win.
