The Shorewood on the Sound Community Club (SOTS CC) is located in the northwest part of Burien Washington and has about 452 households within its boundaries. Ours is a well extablished club that has been active in the community for over 70 years.  The By-Laws governing our organization were first drafted shortly after the war, in 1946.  The club properties include the Shorewood Community Beach and Boat Ramp, and the many neighborhood trails winding throughout our neighborhood and connecting to the trail system within the extensive surrounding natural areas, parks, and greenbelts. 

We have a long tradition in SOTS of community participation and comradery. Click the Annual Events tab above to see some of the things we have been up to.

The Shorewood on the Sound Community Club (SOTS CC) Annual Meeting is coming up - Wednesday, November 8th, 6:30-8:30 pm at Shorewood Elementary School.  At this meeting we will elect board members and officers to serve on the SOTS CC Board beginning in January 2018.  We’d love to have you join the board!  We meet monthly, except in August and December.  It’s a great way to meet neighbors and contribute to the neighborhood.

The volunteer force boasts many community members – some pulled ivy from an area graced by two Noble Fir trees planted by Fred Henzi 20 years ago, and others planted Coastal Strawberry plants which are a wonderful native groundcover. The project goals are to remove invasive plants and to replace them with native ground cover. Get Involved with Adopt-A-Park.
