We are committed to being part of a healthy community.
As a facility of The Seattle Parks and Recreation Department, we are committed to making our neighborhoods and city a better place to live. Aside from public events, we offered the following in 2017.
The clubhouse is available for free or reduced rental rates to qualifying non-profit organizations. Past recipients have used our clubhouse for community organizing, volunteer coordinating, annual retreats and meetings, and teacher appreciation days.
Beacon Food Forest
We continued our partnership with the Beacon Food Forest by providing them meeting space throughout the year, including their annual retreat. In 2010, co-founders Glenn Herlihy and Jacqueline Cramer held the first Beacon Food Forest public meeting at the Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club to explain the possibilities of starting a food forest, with people coming from a variety of city agencies, community groups and local residents.
Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness
JPLBC provided a discounted rental rate, and a volunteer staff for a Lawn Bowling Fundraiser for the Seattle/King County Coalition on Homelessness (SKCCH) to support their work for safety, housing, and justice for our homeless neighbors.
asa mercer middle school
JPLBC honored the Mercer Middle School teachers for their contribution to the youth development with a free rental of the clubhouse and greens. Seattle Public Schools also were given free use of the clubhouse for a working meeting.
JPLBC donated rink time and instruction to Giddens School’s online auction. Giddens School provides an academically excellent curriculum enriched with a commitment to critical thinking and social responsibility.
