Madrona Winter Playfair and Potluck

Lift your winter spirits at the first ever Winter Playfair happening from 4:00-7:00pm on Jan. 14. Designed for children and adults of all ages, activities include opportunities to acquire skills or use existing ones (sing-a-long; piano playing; knitting; collage making; coloring; decoration creation–for the Feb. MCC Neighbor Awards and the Epiphany Have A Heart event—and much more), play games (bean bag toss; jigsaw puzzling, Twister, Legos) and exchange items you want for those you no longer need (plush toys; books; magazines; puzzles; children’s costumes). Anyone who has underutilized Legos is encouraged to bring them.

If you can share 30 minutes of your time to lead a game or share a skill on Jan. 14, please be in touch by Jan. 8 with Audrey Seale at audreyseale@comcast so she can arrange for tables, mats, etc. Participants so far include All Threads Together, Epiphany Parish, Madrona Grace, and the Madrona Community Council. Many more have been invited to pitch in to play. Getting together as a community also means sharing a meal, so please bring food to share on the 14th. Madrona Dining and Sipping Society is on board too. Plates, etc., will be provided. To let us know you plan to bring food, please send an email to Barbara Parker at   The event is at Epiphany’s Great Hall and kitchen (1805 38th Ave.). See you there!
