Disclaimer: Please keep in mind that application of this plan is a personal choice, and in no way is the author Tyler Mangum or the Montlake Community Club responsible for those choices. Readers and athletes are encouraged to only operate within their scope of practice. Examination, treatment, intervention, and rehabilitation for athletes should only be performed by a licensed medical professional.
Please join your neighbors at a Montlake Elementary work party on Sunday, October 27th from 9-3. Come for an hour or stay for the day. Tools and coffee will be provided. Bring gloves if you have them (we can provide them if you don’t have them). We will be cleaning up the school grounds and getting the garden ready for winter. There is A LOT to do!
This is a great chance to get to know other families in the neighborhood, catch up with old friends, build community and make our neighborhood elementary school look sharp! Kid participation is welcome and encouraged!
What will we be doing? We will weed throughout, put down compost and wood chips where needed and hopefully edge the sidewalks. Also, if anyone has an electric or gas lawn edger, please let me know if you would be willing to let us borrow it. I can pick it up if you are not able to attend the work party. It would be ideal to have two or three.

Happy Halloween & Feliz Dia de los Muertos!
Calling all potential Turkey Trot Sponsors! We are $5,500 short of our sponsorship requirement to host the race, so we are hoping to find sponsors at the $500, $1,000, $2500 or $4,000 level.
These critical funds cover the cost of the race, allowing all proceeds to support our University District Food Bank. Did you know that the Turkey Trot is the second largest fundraiser for the food bank? They rely on our community’s generosity to feed neighbors in need.
Our community is lucky to have committed sponsors year after year. Café Lago, and now Little Lago, have been generous sponsors from the beginning of the Turkey Trot. We are also grateful to have Glam and Tonic hair salon, who not only donates but also opens up the space for the Turkey Trot operate. Stokes Lawrence Law Firm & KHBB Law have Montlake residents who are committed to this special event and continue to support the cause annually. It’s great to have Graham Construction on board this year, the company contracted to do the 520 Bridge work. Thank you to all of the sponsors for their generosity.
Sponsors are highlighted in communications to the runners and community-wide posts, being recognized as a community partner. For more details see the sponsorship packet here or reach out to email@example.com. Thank you for considering sponsorship!
