Seattle Works

A blog that documents all things Seattle Works…and much much more!

Possibly the worst online poll ever October 28, 2009

Filed under: Grab bag — seattleworks @ 6:08 pm

I’m thinking about starting to do online polls on our blog, in the Weekly Email, etc.

(And I’ll be honest, I’m teaching a class on effective online communications and would like to show the class how fun and easy it is to use polls! You, my friends, have become guinea pigs.)


So what do you think?

After months of planning, our Swank volunteer team had our final meeting Monday night. The task – take all those fine auction items we’ve brought in and package them up!


 What’s in store? Wine, Sounders and a surprising assortment of items from Oh my!


 Bravo and great job to our amazing volunteer team.


HandsOn Schools- Brighton Elementary October 5, 2009

Thank you to UBS and everyone who joined us on Saturday to brighten up the playground at Brighton Elementary. Wow- what a transformation! With all the color from new game lines, US map, the mural, and fresh mulch & plants, the common thought Saturday afternoon seemed to be “I wish I could be here on Monday to see the kids’ reactions”. If the enthusiasm of the kids who joined us on Saturday is any kind of indicator, there are going to be a lot of excited kids on Monday.
