The storm left behind a bit of snow on the Olympics! WSB contributing photojournalist Nick Adams photographed them this morning. And now … it’s sunny (new forecast!), at least as we bring you these highlights from the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar for the rest of today/tonight:
‘BE HERE, GET THERE’ AT ROXHILL: It’s not a public event but will bring a lot of excitement this morning to Roxhill Elementary as Mayor McGinn and Superintendent José Banda launch this year’s edition of the “Be Here, Get There” attendance-incentives campaign at 10 am; watch for coverage here later.
TRANSPORTATION TALK AT WEST SEATTLE ROTARY: Mike Lindblom, transportation reporter for The Seattle Times (WSB partner), is the featured speaker at today’s Rotary Club of West Seattle lunch, noon at Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor). With the Metro changes, Spokane Street Viaduct Widening Project, Alaskan Way Viaduct/tunnel, and more, he’s got a lot to cover, and to talk about, so come listen and bring questions.
FIREFIGHTER STORY TIME WITH THE CHIEF: Seattle Fire Chief Gregory Dean will be the guest reader at Firefighter Story Time for preschoolers at High Point Library (35th/Raymond), 1:30 pm.
HEAR THE PROSECUTORS’ SIDE OF THE STORY: Tonight’s monthly West Seattle Crime Prevention Council meeting features not only your chance to bring neighborhood concerns to local police, but also a guest appearance by Ian Goodhew from the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. 7 pm, Southwest Precinct meeting room (lobby entrance from the parking lot on the Webster side of the building, just west of Delridge Way).
FOOD DRIVE REMINDER: Halfway through the month of October – and the group food drive by local physical-therapy clinics continues; even if you’re not a patient, you’re welcome to drop a donation off at a participating clinic. Here’s our original story with the list.
MANY more events on the calendar, including classes, story times, and nightlife – take a look here.
