TWISS as we know it is going away. “Noooooo!” You say. And to that we say, “Fear not!” The Emerald is getting a new website and with it a calendar that will make submitting events to us super convenient for you and very easy for us to publish. That means we can feature more of your events! Thanks to our Rainmakers, we’re beyond excited to be able to offer this valuable resource to the community.

The weather was perfect for the 46th Anniversary ROOTS (Relatives of Old Timers of Seattle) Family Picnic, September 2nd at Jimi Hendrix Park. The summer celebration was started in the 1970s as a way to bring together some of Seattle’s original Black families and some more recent arrivals. It’s become a tradition where friends and family come together to reminisce about the past, create new memories and honor and appreciate people who are doing good things in the community.
