Ethiopian dinner at Yesler Community Center


On Nov. 19, Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Lifelong Recreation unit and the program leaders of our East African Senior Meal Program, which is supported in part by the Seattle Park District, co-hosted a Fall Festival at Yesler Community Center. The event was open to the public and more than 80 people attended. Community members enjoyed activities like bingo, arts and crafts, Amharic music, a photo booth, a raffle, and a traditional Ethiopian dinner. Volunteers who support both the meal program and the work being done at Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands were recognized at the event and will receive a Denny Award for outstanding volunteer stewardship on December 6.
