By Teri Burke, Program Coordinator
We had the seed of an idea to provide some kind of open forum to give our senior participants the opportunity to communicate directly with City officials. In September of 2009 we held our first First Friday Coffee Chat. Mayor Marchione got things started that day and many other City officials have followed on the subsequent first Fridays.
Wii For All!
If you think video games are just for teenage boys then you are very mistaken. The RSC boasts a “hardcore” group of dedicated Nintendo Wii players. On any given day, a visit to the Fireplace Lounge could land you in the middle of a wakeboarding contest, a bicycle race or a ping pong game – just to name a few.
A Most Elegant Event
Last December the RSC reinstated an old tradition with a new twist – the Candlelight Dinner Dance. This annual event was our most elegant and elaborate of the year. While it was a wonderful and beautiful event, it was also very expensive and very labor intensive; so much so that RSC could no longer hold it on site.

ALL EVENTS TAKE PLACE
New Name and Date
In response to vendor feedback the RSC is making some big changes to the Holiday Craft Bazaar. The first change is the name. In order to more accurately describe the event the new name is Holiday Craft Market.
The second change is date and time. The Holiday Craft Market will take place in conjunction with Redmond Lights on Saturday, December 4 from 12 noon to 5:30pm. This change will allow the RSC to take advantage of both the Redmond Lights publicity and the enthusiastic crowds that turn out for the event.
Individuals wishing to participate as a vendor should call
425-556-2314 and ask for Karen.
The Recreation Department is always looking for new and interesting classes to offer. If you have a hobby or skill that you would like to share with others please call Teri Burke at 425-556-2342 to discuss the possibilities and request a program proposal form.
