Tickets are now available for the November 15 Madrona Wine Event, which will feature tastings from a selection of wines put together by the Leschi Market, including wine sales available by the bottle and by the case with special pricing.

Tickets are $32.50, and proceeds benefit the Madrona Community Council and its community events such as Mayfair and Halloween in Madrona.

The City of Seattle will be partnering with the community to host the Central Area Block Party on Saturday, September 27 at the corner of 23rd Avenue and Cherry Street (2323 E. Cherry Street) from 10:00am to 6:00pm. You won’t want to miss out on a great time with your neighbors enjoying live music, food trucks, art activities and more.
In addition to the other fun activities, this block party is an opportunity for the Central Area to learn about and provide feedback on the 23rd Ave Action Plan (Union-Cherry-Jackson), the urban design framework and possible zoning changes in these key community nodes. It’s also a chance to receive the most current information on the 23rd Ave corridor improvements.
This block party is sponsored by the 23rd Ave Advisory Core Team (ACT). You can also meet our ACT members who helped shape these plans. The ACT was formed to work in partnership with this City team and the community to uphold their vision of the community nodes along the 23rd Avenue corridor to achieve a healthy living environment.
Come enjoy the party and join your neighbors in taking action to improve on your community!
Join us this month at the Madrona Playfield for two evenings of music and fun!
An update on this year’s Madrona Garage Sale: Approximately 25 homes will be hosting events. Most of the garage sales will start at 9am, but the exact starting time is determined by each individual household. Maps of each location and a short description of items offered is attached, or can be picked up at Cupcake Royal/Verite Coffee (1101 – 34th Avenue in the heart of Madrona) the morning of June 28.
You can also print your own PDF of this year’s map: Madrona Garage Sale Map (PDF)
Back by popular demand, the Madrona Neighborhood Garage Sale date is set for June 28. As in years past, Madrona neighbors are encouraged to host a sale on that day. The Madrona Community Council (MCC) will again coordinate by producing a map of June 28 Madrona sales to be promoted online and available in print form for distribution at home/garage sale locations. Last year the sale attracted over 20 participants, bringing many shoppers into the neighborhood.
All money raised supports Madrona neighborhood activities, such as the Halloween Party, the Mayfair Block Party, and the Madrona News.
The MCC is looking for volunteers to help with the event. This would include putting up signs, creating or distributing the print map, or being available the day of the sale. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org you are able to volunteer.
The annual Youth and Law Forum will take place on April 26, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the MLK Family Arts Mentoring Enrichment Community Center. The Youth and Law Forum is a free event that was first organized in 1990 by King County Superior Court Judges LeRoy McCullough and Charles Johnson to educate youth and families about law careers, court procedures, legal rights and responsibilities, and current social issues. School-aged youth located in the Pacific Northwest from kindergarten through high school are encouraged to attend.
This year, the forum will include age appropriate seminars and workshops designed to help our youth understand the law and to develop relationships with law enforcement officials. There will be a wide variety of speakers from the local judiciary, legal community, and Seattle Police Department. Students can register for the event at http://www.youthandlaw.com.
