This is a support group for adults with aging parents, either in or out of the family’s home. Caring for aging parents can be overwhelming, placing great demands on your time and emotions. It can negatively affect your marriage and/or other family relationships, and it can be difficult to navigate healthcare, housing, and other issues. Come and gain support and ideas from others who are addressing a similar situation, and from facilitators: Brandi DeFazio and Debra Peopping, both of whom have specific training and experience working with issues of aging and the impact on families.

Echo Glen Children’s Center is a Washington State Juvenile Detention facility. There are 160 great kids as young as 11 and up to 20 years old. Most have been neglected or abused by parent(s) who may have also been neglected and abused. It seems to be a continuous cycle – one that Echo Glen staff is determined to break. These kids crave positive attention from adults and need good role models. Nearly all have dangerously low self-esteem.
Background checks are required and you must over 21 to interact with the youth, but prep work can be done by any age or group.
Here are opportunities to show these appreciative kids that you care (ascending order of time commitment):

– Help the kids bake cupcakes and create cards that are given to others-in-need for their monthly birthday celebration
Career Fair – April and October – Join the panel to share the pros & cons of your career/job.
Service Project Socials – Come chat with 3 or 4 youth while helping them with a project that helps others.

Encompass is an independent, non-profit organization established in 1966 with a unique mission: to nurture children, enrich families and inspire community.

Our focus area is early childhood development from birth to age 12. Our primary programs fall under pediatric therapy and education (preschool and parenting classes).

Nestled in the western foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Snoqualmie Valley is approximately 30 miles east of Seattle, Washington, and includes the cities of North Bend and Snoqualmie, and the communities of Fall City, Preston, and Snoqualmie Pass.

Fall City is blessed with an extensive and unique 520-page book on its history: Jack’s History of Fall City, published in 2006 by Jack E. Kelley. It brings together materials from over 15 years of research by Jack and Judy Kelley. During the three-year period it was being prepared for publication, the Fall City community shared family history with Jack, passed many things into his care, and stepped up to help with publication expenses. As the publication date neared, it seemed important to provide a way for this community enthusiasm for our local history to continue and to flourish. Thus, the decision was made to form the Fall City Historical Society. The Society was organized under the nonprofit umbrella of the Fall City Community Association in 2006.

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!

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.
