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!

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.

They were the nucleus for the present day collection that includes cherished artifacts and anecdotes from all corners of the Snoqualmie Valley.

Transition Snoqualmie Valley formed when a group of friends from several valley towns were discussing ways they could respond, on a local level, to the issues of economic crisis, climate change and peak oil. The group learned of the Transition Towns movement begun in Great Britain, which has spread to hundreds of cities and towns worldwide. There are currently 103 official transition towns in the United States (TSV was #90!) and many more in the formative stage. This movement represents a promising way of engaging people and communities to take the re-localization actions required to create community resilience.
