Park Rangers to Start Patrolling Cal Anderson Park


Even if our Chamber offices weren't overlooking Cal Anderson Park, the safety of our neighborhood is very much a part of our mission. Without it, everyone suffers. Executive Director Michael Wells had a lengthy and fruitful discussion with Captain Ron Wilson and Lieutenant Matthew Allen  that resulted in the Mayor adding ongoing Park Ranger patrols to Cal Anderson. Justin over at Chamber member has been covering the story very well and even posted the job listing today. The Chamber was also mentioned in the Seattle Times story about the additional patrols, and Michael was interviewed by KOMO radio and quoted on their neighborhood blog. Our ongoing relationship with the East Precinct means the business and community interests are being considered when safety issues become a concern.  If you would like to join the Chamber's Clean & Safe committee to be part of the discussion, contact us at 206-328-6646.

Chamber member Women's Century Club will host a discussion on Women's Organizations: Past, Present and Future. As a women's organization born in 1891 by noted suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt, the club continues a long tradition of women caring for the community. Guest speaker will be historian Karen Blair.  As an expert on the impact of women and their organizations in the 19th and 20th centuries,  Karen will discuss women's clubs as the hidden shapers of American society, emphasizing the many ways that members, pre-suffrage and beyond, used their collective creativity and tenacity to enhance the amenities for their communities.  She'll also reflect on the relevance of women's clubs in the 21st century.
