Join us at our November meeting

Switching gears from our October political forums, for BDC’s November 13 meeting, we have a three-part agenda:

Presentation on Assisted Living/Care Facilities
Mac McQuade, the Community Relations Director for Merrill Gardens (an Assisted Living/Care Facility in Ballard), will talk about how to research and find suitable facilities for aging relatives, as well as what questions to ask as part of the search. Following the 20-minute presentation, there’ll be time for Q&A.
Sneak  Preview of the New Ballard Kaiser Permanente Clinic

Rhenda Meiser & Dr. Hannah Burdge will give an overview of the new Kaiser Permanente medical facility opening this winter on the 5th floor of the Ballard Blocks 2 building (1401 NW 46th St), next to Ballard Bridge.

An Update from Ballard Senior Center

Founded in 1973, the Ballard Senior Center provides a wide range of programs and services to seniors in the Ballard community and beyond. Mary Webster will briefly outline the mission and the services offered to more than 4,000 seniors annually (including food programs, fitness, social work, health and wellness education, partnerships with local theater groups, and more).

Council Business — Also note that next month, a selection committee will nominate the board of directors for 2020. Let us know if you’re interested in serving on the BDC executive board. The board usually meets monthly in addition to the regular BDC meeting. A primary purpose of the board is to set the agenda for BDC meetings and to help in arranging speakers and running the meetings.

Join us and help spread the word to other community members!

The meeting is Wednesday, Nov 13, 7-8:30pm at Sunset Hill Community Club (3003 NW 66th St).

Each Ballard District Council meeting begins with a few minutes of community introductions and announcements. The district council is a great place to share information and develop relationships on a variety of civic topics in the greater Ballard community. All are welcome.
