On the 24th, we joined, as a sponsor, Foss Home and Village in their annual Farmers Market. Over 1,000 people walked through the market. Derek and Devin manned our Bean Bag Toss themed boot with plenty of prizes to give out and laughs to go around! Many of the local vendors and attendees were glad we were there! It was a great way to be involved with our local community in a friendly, upbeat and positive atmosphere.
On August 20th we hosted our third blood drive along with Puget Sound Blood Center.
While we had our lowest turnout so far, only 18 people, 7 of them were first-time donors
and we hope they will continue on. From these donations, 48 units of blood products will
be available to save the lives of local patients. According to the blood center, almost 900
people must donate every day to meet the needs of the community.
At the beginning of the month, Evergreen Washelli invited the local
community to our annual “Dig That Jazz” event which was an outdoor
concert in the cemetery. This was a night of live Jazz music to honor and
celebrate the lives of family members and friends who have passed away.
Everyone in attendance was asked to write the name of their loved one on
a balloon before they were all released together in the Saturday evening sky.

We recognize that blood is vital for children and adults battling cancer, surgery patients, accident victims and other ill and injured people. Nearly 900 people must donate blood through Puget Sound Blood Center every day to meet the needs of local patients. Since volunteer donors are the only source of blood for our community supply, it is important to donate blood year-round.
First time donors may have questions about the blood donation process. Find out the answers to your questions here!

On Sunday May 12th 2013, the NROTC University of Washington will be placing more than 1,500 roses from the “Ten Grands” concert at gravesites at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Evergreen Washelli Memorial Park. The roses are a gift from The Seattle Symphony and “Ten Grands” Seattle. They will first be used on stage at the 6th annual “Ten Grands” concert at Benaroya Hall the previous evening.
Individual roses will be placed at the gravesites honoring veterans during a brief ceremony starting at 10 a.m. and will take approximately one hour to complete. The public is invited to observe this notable event. The event will take place at the Doughboy statue in the Evergreen Washelli Veterans Cemetery.
The Seattle Symphony has been “giving the gift of music” since its inception in September of 1999. Its purpose is to promote the performing arts and to make them accessible to all youthful and “at risk” members of the community. Inspired by the vision of composer/pianist Michael Allen Harrison, Seattle Symphony, Inc. (501) © (3) provides instruments, scholarships and musical programs to underserved students in the State of Washington. The Seattle Symphony has raised more than $2 million in the past ten years including both Oregon and now Washington. All funding has gone directly to helping serve the youth in our communications through music.
“Ten Grands” presented by RBC Wealth Management is a benefit for The Seattle Symphony, a concert whose proceeds will enable the funding of several music programs, supporting targeted groups where music would make a positive difference in the lives of many children. On May 11th, 2013, the “Ten Grands” concert will be held at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, beginning at 7pm. The “something for everyone” concert includes classical, jazz, blues, gospel, boogie woogie, pop, and contemporary music (including some original compositions). The musicians will play simultaneously, as soloists, in duets, quartets and other combinations. Tickets for this worthy cause are available at the Benaroya Hall Ticket Office.
Evergreen Washelli thanks The Seattle Symphony for their generous donation of the roses and supports their efforts in funding music education programs and activities.
