Celebrating at Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center
By Jon Ann Cruver
Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It's important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It's the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.

Hazel Anderson is a testament to this quote. She gives service at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center Thrift Shop every Friday.

Hazel Anderson just celebrated her 97th birthday. She celebrated it while on duty at the Thrift Shop. She has been a volunteer for “about 9 years” bringing with her a vibrant smile, crazy sense of humor and dedication to her job. Her daughter and other Thrift Shop volunteers gave her a break by making sure she had not one, but two, chocolate birthday cakes. When asked if she liked chocolate, she gave a sly grin and replied “a little”. She is a Shoreline resident who drove herself to the center until a just a short time ago, now she gets there by way of METRO bus. The volunteers and the Center staff were delighted to wish her Happy Birthday and to honor her on her special day.

All members of the Senior Center with Birthdays in August, including Hazel, will have a Birthday Lunch on Thursday, the 19th, at 11:15 AM. Their guests and other lunch participants will have a wonderful meal made “from scratch” by the Center’s Chef Janice with Beef Wellington as the centerpiece. Additionally, there will be gifts and live music.

Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center is located at the Shoreline Conference Center Campus, 18560 1st AVE NE #1; 206-365-1536.  Website.   Hours: 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
