Our mascot, the opossum, is named "Puck" after a famous literary character.  Puck -  Also known as Robin Goodfellow, Puck is Oberon’s jester, a mischievous fairy who delights in playing pranks on mortals. Though A Midsummer Night’s Dream divides its action between several groups of characters, Puck is the closest thing the play has to a protagonist. His enchanting, mischievous spirit pervades the atmosphere, and his antics are responsible for many of the complications that propel the other main plots: he mistakes the young Athenians, applying the love potion to Lysander instead of Demetrius, thereby causing chaos within the group of young lovers; he also transforms Bottom’s head into that of an ass.



This is the neighborhood association for the part of the City of Olympia east of Black Lake Blvd and Division Street, south of Harrison Avenue, west of Capitol Lake and north of Percival Cove, Percival Creek and Cooper Point Rd/Auto Mall Way.


Membership is $10 (or whatever you can afford, more is always appreciated) per person per year (see the FAQ section for a membership form).  We have accomplished quite a bit in the last few years thanks to some super volunteers.  Check out the parks at 9th & Fern,  the end of Decatur St and overlooking the 4th ave roundabout next to the mural.


Visitor's notice:

We welcome visitors from anywhere.  Please check out all the pages on this site and leave a comment on the "Comments" page.
