MLTCF Newsletter Vol. 3
Lots going on at the Mountlake Terrace Community Foundation this month. Read below for
Neighborhood Improvement Program
We recently received a grant from the Hazel Miller Foundation which allowed us to launch our Neighborhood Improvement Program. The program will fund small projects around town proposed by the community. Applications are due on April 6 and we look forward to hearing about your ideas. Apply here.
We are still working on the plan for a summer concert series at Lake Ballingerin partnership with the Community Senior Center. While planning continues for the events themselves, we're also working on a plan to expand the patio/deck at the back of the Senior Center so that it can be used as a stage for the concerts.
Community Resilience Classes
Our first Community Resilience class is this weekend and we have had a great response. Over 40 people have signed up to attend the Stop the Bleed/Until Help Arrives class. This class is full but be on the lookout for information about the next one. Refreshments at this weekend's class are generously being provided by Vineyard Park.
Last week our president, Dustin DeKoekkoek, presented about our organization at the monthly Mountlake Terrace Business Association lunch. There was a great turnout from local businesses and we made some great connections for future partnering possibilities.
Another effort of ours is working to preserve and promote our City's history. We have been working with City staff to catalog all the old photos and documents the City has. Our plan is to have them professionally digitized and create a website to make them publicly accessible. We also have several other projects in mind related to Mountlake Terrace History. Until then, find some old photos on our Mountlake Terrace History Facebook page.
Join our efforts
If you are interested in getting involved in the MLTCF or have a specific project or program you would like to see happen in our community, we'd love to chat. We're currently making a list of volunteer opportunities and ways for people to get involved.
