Hello Neighbors,
As we all do our best to adapt to our new Stay Home Stay Healthy lifestyle as directed by our State Governor, it is a good time to find new ways for social connection.  Your Highland Terrace Neighborhood Association would like to continue providing ways for neighbors to connect and engage with each other.  For the month of April let’s have an animal hunt.  Find a stuffed animal in your home and display it in your street facing window.  It can be a teddy bear or any stuffed animal that can be easily seen from the street.  If you don’t have any stuffies laying around, we have links to some bears that can be printed out and decorated then taped in your window.  As you go for your walks, try to find as many animals as you can throughout the neighborhood.  Go to our HTNA facebook page and let your neighbors know how many you found or tell us about your favorite animal display.

Remember that while there are many things we can’t do there are still so many ways to stay connected.  Please remember to check on your immediate neighbors and make sure they have what they need, or just say hello and ask how they are doing.  

Thank you for doing your part to shorten the time until we can meet again in person. Please share your ideas for more neighborhood activities to strengthen our community connection and enrich our stay at home lives:

"Donations Desperately Needed"
Shoreline/Lake Forest Park Senior Center

Providing Essential Services to Seniors
Experiencing low funds during COVID-19 
During the Public Comment at Shoreline City Council meeting on Monday, March 30, Theresa LaCroix, Senior Center Director, informed City Council that "donations are desperately needed" to assist the Center in responding to seniors.  In addition to serving those who qualify for Meal on Wheels, hot meals are prepared and delivered to seniors age 60+ who are often frail and challenged economically, and a "protein bag" of groceries is delivered on Friday to help over the weekend.   Expenses for the Senior Center are increasing and funds are low.  During the week of March 23, four hundred meals were delivered.
Please consider making a donation to the Senior Center.

Only Flush Toilet Paper!
Disinfectant wipes, "flushable" wipes, facial tissue, and paper towels
all go in the garbage.
Seattle Public Utilities, servicing the west side of Shoreline, reminds customers to only flush toilet paper.  Here is the link of what not to flush and why.  Other paper products can clog pipes and sewers, leading to expensive repair bills for property owners, and can cause problems in lakes and waterways.  
Watch this short video comparing toilet paper break-down and "flushable" wipes.
2020 Census 
Information and a 2020 Census invitation has been delivered by mail.  Response can be online, by phone or by mail.  Legally, everyone who lives in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and the five U.S. territories, is required to be counted.  
Note: the Census Bureau does not ask for a social security number, bank account, credit card, money or donation.  All official census workers carry identification badges including a photo, U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date.  If someone comes to your door and claims to be a census taker and you have questions, you can reach a local Census Bureau representative at 800-923-8282 (8am to 5pm EST).  
For more information go to Census 2020.
