Green Lake Stewards Work Party – November 13

Green Lake Work Party Saturday morning – November 13, 2021, 9AM to 11AM

Hello Stewards…

Happy Fall! Hope this email finds you well.

We are having a work party, limited to 10 volunteers, this coming Saturday, November 13th, from 9 am to 11am.

  • Masks – We are no longer requiring volunteers wear masks for the entirety of all events. Mask protocol depends on if there are children under 12 present at your event. This protocol was developed from the City of Seattle Face Covering Policy, attached to this email.
    • Masks for events without children under 12 – Volunteers should arrive wearing a mask, and keep it on when gathering (introduction, assisting with planting, moving mulch together, etc.), but may take them off when working spread out more than 6 feet.
    • Masks for events with children under 12 – All volunteers should wear a mask for the duration of the event.
  • Bring your own work gloves.
  • Tools will be disinfected after use.
  • We will work separated with social distancing in mind.
  • RSVP at  at https://seattle.greencitypartnerships.org/event/20266/, if you are interested.

If you arrive late, follow the Event signs to find the work site:

Date: Nov. 13, 2021
Time: 9 am to 11 am
Meet: Beside the Aqua Theater at the east end of the Small Craft Center (5900 West Green Lake Way North)

Dress for the weather and the dirty work, wear close-toed shoes and bring a bottle of water. Hope see you there!
