October 2010 in Green Lake

What do you think? (1 Comment) October 31, 2010 at 11:30AM

At the end of every month, we like to do a review the past month in Green Lake.

Our most clicked-on story in October?   Notice of tonight’s naked pumpkin run.

October also brought some more serious reading.  As news of the mayor’s proposed cuts to the Green Lake Community Center spread, Green Lake residents  tried to wrap their heads around the idea that 2011 could bring no Pathway of Lights.

We also learned that offices may be permanently moved into the second floor of the community center, displacing several classes and programs.  Many residents expressed alarm when signs went up at the community center indicating that construction work would begin on November 4.  The signs, however, were put up in error and were promptly taken down.

A local woman asked us to alert residents that she witnessed a man masturbating under a streetlight on her early-morning jog.

There was some happier news.  Life-affirming messages popped up along the Green Lake Loop, and a reader snapped a picture of a woman walking seven dogs.

We learned that new lights will soon be going up at the Lower Woodland Skatepark, and a street mural was painted on Stone Ave N.

Engine 17 conducted a firefighter story time at the Green Lake Library.  The kids at Bagley Elementary School renovated the school’s garden and held a jogathon and a Halloween Fun Run.  McDonald Elementary School held a walkathon.  Green Lake Elementary School celebrated their new garden and hosted the mayor.

The Purple Store, coming soon to Aurora Ave N, generated some interest, as did news that a Robeks Smoothies is coming to the Circa building.

We learned of the early history of Woodland Park and about Green Lake John, the neighborhood’s first white settler.

Lastly, we announced some changes to My Green Lake, as well as a new site called North Seattle Guide.

Thanks for reading!  We’ll see what November brings…
