Visit Maple Leaf Life at the Summer Social!

July 26th, 2011 · 4 Comments

It was great meeting many of you at least year’s Maple Leaf Summer Social, when Maple Leaf Life was still just a few months old and unknown to many neighbors.

We’ll have a table again Wednesday, and hope you’ll stop by and tell us (us being co-editors Mike and Mai Ling) what you love most about living in Maple Leaf. We’re taking a page from our sister blog Queen Anne View, where attendees at a recent event were encouraged to snap a photo with an instant camera, then write on the bottom of the photo what they like best about their neighborhood.

We’ll provide the camera, markers and poster board, but you’re going to provide the creativity and love of Maple Leaf!

In addition to the 50 booths that will be at the Maple Leaf Summer Social, from 6:30-8:30 tomorrow night at the Maple Leaf Playground, 1020 N.E. 82nd St., a few highlights include:

  • Frozen custard courtesy Peak’s Frozen Custard and ice cream sponsored by Maple Leaf Ace
  • Marimba music from Tumbuka
  • Music Center of the Northwest will have a small fiddle group composed of children who will play during Tumbuka’s 7:30 p.m. break
  • There will be one face painter and two balloonists
  • Seattle Electric Vehicle Association will have up to three electric cars to show off
  • There will be greyhound dogs for adoption from
  • UW Experimental College will have the class catalog with current offerings

Other tables to stop by include:
