Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

Strolling with friends last night along Westlake Avenue toward Lake Union Park it's easy to get into the holiday spirit Seattle style!

Shoppers toting bags from Seattle's newest and most fashionable boutique shops, commuters settling into the warmth of the Seattle Streetcar for the quick ride downtown, and friends and co-workers gathering after hours at the many innovative eateries around every corner. It's all a part of the world-class flavor of our South Lake Union neighborhood.

As we reflect on the past 12 months and look forward to a bright 2014, I can't help but get excited about the experiences that our neighborhood and new friends and acquaintances will bring!

Whether you're a longtime resident or new friend, the spirit of technology innovation is in your DNA or you’re taking on the really tough problems of global health, I would like to encourage you to share your voice with your neighbors at the South Lake Union Community Council.

Everyone is welcome! We meet on the first Tuesday of every month, from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. at the Museum of History and Industry at Lake Union Park.

Please join us in 2014 as we innovate, inspire and engage in our South Lake Union neighborhood!

Sincerely,

Mike McQuaid President, South Lake Union Community Council
