West Seattle scenes: North Delridge ice-cream social

Busy night around West Seattle – we made it to four events, and here are photos from one of them – the North Delridge Neighborhood Council‘s ice-cream social at Cottage Grove Park. Holli Margell provided the photo above – that’s Lisa Keith, who organized the event, painting Cooper Margell‘s face, while dad Casey Margell helps him hold still. Next, a photo we took – can’t have an ice-cream social without ice cream:

Lisa notes, “The weather was perfect for ice cream, angel food cake, peach crisp, and blackberries picked along Longfellow Creek. We welcomed neighbors who moved to Delridge just this summer, to the lovely Gerthrie, who has graced North Delridge for over 40 years. … It was lovely to have a chance to relax, talk, and enjoy each other’s company.” Now, another photo from Holli – the “bubble bucket” was a hit with the younger attendees:

And we couldn’t resist snapping the whiteboard with upcoming North Delridge Neighborhood Council events:

Note those are both in the week ahead: You can join the Adopt-A-Street cleanup on Saturday morning, and then Wednesday at 6:30, the NDNC monthly meeting is at Olympia Pizza (5605 Delridge; map) instead of the library, since it’s in the middle of furlough week.

    THANKS to all who came, and Phrin (smiling in the center of the lead photo) gets extra credit for her homemade ice cream. We had a great time and enough folks attended that we ran out of sugar cones. Hope to see you all at future NDNC events. Shameless plug: the Adopt-a-Street this Saturday is a great way to walk and talk and get to know your neighbors better (you can cover a lot of ground, literally & conversationally, in a couple hours). Meet at 10 a.m. at the Delridge Community Center parking lot. Coffee provided.

    Iris, Eloise, Sybil and I had fun and enjoyed getting to meet some neighbors. This seems like a great neighborhood and community.

    Thanks Lisa and all for organizing the icecream social. It’s the beginning of many fun events for Delridge!

    Looking forward to the upcoming S’Mores party on September 13th in the park by Delridge Community Center (organized by Nancy Folsom and Jane Taylor).

    Sugar-based events seem to be a winner in this community. See you there!

Sorry, comment time is over.
