|Three King's Game Day 2020
Dignity/Seattle's second annual Three King's Game Day began at 2pm with a taco lunch provided by member Gerry Roling. Guest Jessica related her adventures on moving to Seattle. She also provided the fascinating game "Space Cats Fight Fascism" where in the year 3,000,000 space cats are waging a galactic rebellion against a rising tide of fascism and anti-cat bias. Unfortunately we Space Cats lost but those watching the Seahawk's game celebrated the Seahawk's win.
