Old Friends Club is a daytime program of supported social activities for older adults with cognitive challenges. Participants build friendships while enjoying activities in an environment that is comfortable for those with memory loss. They find ways to care for one another– connections that bring purpose and joy to life. Meanwhile, we offer family caregivers respite, support and education to promote their well-being and improve quality of life at home.
Old Friends Club is a non-residential daytime program for older adults with mild to moderate cognitive challenges. We make lives better through music, conversation, art, movement, and friendship.
Join us once a week to come alongside people with Alzheimer’s or other dementia to help them stay socially engaged and physically active (while their family caregivers get a break!) We laugh and learn and are surprised daily with the stories that bubble up.
Old Friends Club meets Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9:30 to 2:30. The small group is up to 12 to 15 people per day, plus two staff and (ideally) two volunteers daily. We are looking for volunteers who will arrive at 9am to help set up, assist with the activities of the day, serve lunch, and help clean up at the end of the day. A six hour shift is great. Shorter shifts are also very helpful.
Help us create a welcoming environment of fun, respect and joy!
Wilderness Awareness School is a national not-for-profit environmental education organization established in 1983 and based in Duvall, Washington. We are dedicated to caring for the earth and our children by fostering understanding and appreciation of nature, community and self.
Our dynamic wilderness education courses combine ancient and modern ecological wisdom, and empower people of all ages to become stewards, mentors and leaders. Over the past two decades, Wilderness Awareness School has grown from a small group of visionary individuals to a leading national organization impacting the course of nature education, and inspiring many schools and individuals across the country and the world to share our teachings and curriculum.
Our mentoring approach honors individuality, encourages self-sufficiency in learning, and awakens a kinship with nature as it trains youth and adults to blend the awareness of a native tracker with the knowledge of a wildlife biologist. Our wilderness education courses draw on traditions from indigenous cultures world-wide, emphasizing nature as teacher, routines to enhance awareness, storytelling, self-motivated learning, and tracking as an interpretive tool.
We have weekly school year programs for ages 4-adult. Weekend classes for teen and adults. Summer camps for 4-17 year olds.
If you want to get outdoors and play in new or old ways visit our web site to find out more. Or call with any questions.
The Snoqualmie Valley Community Network works locally to reduce youth substance abuse, to prevent teen suicide, to foster meaningful community connections with youth, and to coordinate civic engagement opportunities for youth & adults in the valley (such as the Be the Change Leadership event, Key Leaders Summit, the Healthy Community Coalition, & the Rise & Shine Volunteer Recognition breakfast). SVCN’s vision is a Snoqualmie Valley where ALL residents thrive!
Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will have an impact on future decisions — careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised — all ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.

We are a group of people who just LOVE everything paranormal or unexplained. From ghosts to Bigfoot, it’s all fair game. We don’t take ourselves too seriously nor are we professional ghost hunters. We come together to share stories, conversation, and to explore the world of the unexplained. We plan on exploring cemetaries, haunted locations, go hunting for Sasquatch, go on ghost tours, or anything else that piques our curiosity.We started this group because of a lifelong fascination with things that go bump in the night. We want to meet others who share our love of the unknown and want to have fun with it! Note: I’ve added true crime and serial killers to the interests of this group. Criminal psychology is fascinating! Whacky roadside attractions and other weird locales would also be a lot of fun. Although I named this group Paranormal Buffs, my intent when creating it was to include just about anything strange or unusual. I didn’t want to call the group Wierd Buffs! Ha ha.
This group is for vegetarians, vegans and just veg-curious people who love to get outside and be active. This group is mainly focused on hiking the trails in the Snoqualmie Valley and the I-90 corridor. This group is open to all skill levels and the hikes vary from easy and short to long and grueling. It is all based on demand and suggestions. We can also use the trails for snowshoeing and trail running.
Our club’s mission is to help people in the Snoqualmie/Eastside area feel welcome and assist them in getting connected to the people, the area, local organizations, and resources that make the Snoqualmie Valley/Eastside so special. We strive to offer a variety of events designed to introduce you to new people and the area. If you would like to see an activity please feel free to let me know. We encourage your participation and ideas.

The group supports our new moms through a “Meals for New Moms” program, and helps support local community service projects through our “Charity of the Quarter” program.
Moms is a place for mothers to network, hear from community leaders and business owners as well as professional speakers.
