GRATITUDE: Neighbor helps find wandering woman

From Fauntleroy Church:

On Sunday, July 29th, an elderly women in our congregation wandered away after worship and found herself lost in Fauntleroy Park. After searching every nook and cranny of the church building and grounds, we turned to the Seattle Police for assistance in finding her. Just as the police arrived, she returned on the arm of Phil, the kind neighbor who found her alone in the park while hiking with his dog, Chester. She had gotten confused while looking for her ride. We are tremendously grateful for Phil and Chester. Thank you for bringing her back safe and sound.

    I  got lost there Sunday before last.  That park can twist you around.  A young lady and her dog appeared out of nowhere.  I asked how to get to Faunt Drive she directed me right at next T.  That worked, of course, but would not have been my choice.  They could have found my bones months later!

    Re:  Finding your way in Fauntleroy Park.  The watershed council has twice taken serious looks at way-finding signage there and each time been deterred by cost.  Seattle Parks has a standard that is vandalism resistant and also compatible with a park setting.  Unfortunately, the posts are very expensive – too expensive to offset with volunteer labor as available grants require.  We’re about to install new maps in the kiosks at the Barton and 97th entrances, plus we have the watershed brochure available at each location (which includes a small map).  If anyone has an additional idea we might explore, please comment.

Sorry, comment time is over.
