As part of the Mayor’s One Day of Service, May 21, the Queen Anne Community Council and community organizations are hosting different projects in which people can participate. Some of these activities will be for the whole family.

Also, residents who are planning an individual project can contact QACC members, queenannecc@gmail.com, so individual projects can be listed among community-wide efforts.

QACC is working in conjunction with the Queen Anne Chamber.
