About this Event
The goggedy Glen we all know and love has reached the tender age of 70 this year and has decided to head back to his rambling roots and say "see you later" to his teaching days (though we all know he'll never stop being a teacher to each and every one of us). To celebrate his service of over 30 years of teaching we are hosting a northwest "backyard barbecue potluck" in one of his favorite parks in Seattle; Carkeek. Here he has walked every inch of trail many times over, waded in the low tides, whispered to spawning salmon, and cultivated many friendships. Carkeek park has been one of the important places inspiring many of his experiential-based lesson plans for all of his rascally middle school students.
On August 29th, 2022 (Monday) from 3:00pm to 9:00pm we would like to welcome you to join us in celebration of Glen's milestone 70th year and honor his retirement from Alderwood Middle School. Please feel free to show up for any or all of the celebration. Bring a side dish or snack to share if you can. BBQ chicken and salmon and cold beverages will be provided.
Carkeek park Shelter 2 is located in the trees to the right of the playground. If you drive all the way to the last parking lot before the road loops back around to the entrance you will see a big field with a playground (and infamous salmon slide). From there look up to the right of the playground, in the trees is shelter 2 where we will be BBQing. You can call Cailen (Glen's daughter and host) for further directions or questions at (206) 669-1565.
3:00pm until dusk - Refreshments and pre meal snacks with yard games (and water balloon launching) in the field.
5:00pm - BBQ grilling for a heartier meal. Please bring a side dish to share for the potluck.
Around 8:00pm or dusk - Slideshow of Glen's years as a teacher and the fun times in between!
9:00pm wrap up and head home.
Please feel free to reach out to Cailen (Glen's daughter and host) at (206) 669-1565 if you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions.
