TO THE NW DISTRICT COUNCIL
The Northwest District Council is an organization
of vibrant neighborhood groups working hard to keep this district a great
place to work, play, visit, and live. The efforts of our active local
neighborhood councils make living here the best it can be, ensuring neighborhood
schools, libraries, parks, roads, utilities, and other amenities are maintained
and enhanced for the health, safety, and enjoyment of all. The NW District
Council works with other Districts, the City of Seattle, and state and
regional entities to make life better for everyone. For more information

COMING SOON TO TAPROOT THEATRE:
The Explorers Club
Runs January 30 – February 28 and previews January 28 & 29. Written
by Nell Benjamin.
“Ours is not to think but to do. Don’t think. Do.”
The famed London Explorers Club of 1879 is in turmoil — a woman has been
nominated for membership! Yes, this audacious dame is brazenly brilliant
and has discovered a mythical city, but a female member is a threat to
the entire British Empire. Also, their bartender is missing. Prepare yourself
for untamed comedy as these wacky scientists explore new territory.
