NEST Poetry Gathering On Aging Today At Magnuson

North East Seattle Together

NEST (Northeast Seattle Together) (5751 33rd Avenue NE)  which supports Northeast Seattle elder neighbors through a network of volunteers and vendors, is continuing its  free NEST Café series today at 2pm at Magnuson celebrating National Poetry Month with "For the Love and Fear of Poetry!"

The information says:
NEST member and Faculty Emeritus at North Seattle College, Marilyn Layton will lead us in enjoying a few memorable poems on love, aging, and other relevant encounters. Marilyn does not like inaccessible poetry or poets, so rest assured that you will be able to understand and enjoy the poems we’ll be sharing! Coffee and tea provided.

NEST is a non-profit grassroots operation serving NE Seattle seniors by creating a "virtual village" to helping them be able to stay in their own homes and neighborhoods they love. Volunteers provide companionship, care, as well as help seniors with a wide range of services, including gardening, computer help and more. to seniors aging in their homes. Ongoing classes (fitness, etc) are also offered, as well as access to events, transportation services, and various services (such as estate planners) who provide their services at a discount to members.
