Not to scare you as we start the week, but – Thanksgiving is early this year, just 2 1/2 weeks away. So enjoy what remains of the not-too-holiday-crazed early part of November. Here are highlights from the WSB West Seattle Events Calendar:
ROXHILL CASTLE, DAY 4 – HELP STILL NEEDED! Two more days scheduled for construction of the Roxhill Castle play area, and while volunteers have made spectacular progress – see our weekend photos here and here – if you can spare even just a couple hours, their message: WE NEED YOU! Just show up any time between now and dusk-plus, 29th SW south of Barton (across from Westwood Village’s south side).
BALLOT DROP-OFF VAN, ELECTION-EVE EDITION: Still haven’t sent off your ballot? The dropoff van (featured here and here) is back along West Seattle Stadium‘s driveway (entrance off the east side of 35th SW, south of Avalon Way), 10 am-5 pm today (and 7 am-8 pm tomorrow).
WEST SEATTLE COOKING CLUB: The theme for what you’re supposed to cook and bring to today’s meeting, 3 pm at Beveridge Place Pub – “make a dish using 3 of these ingredients – radicchio, garlic, pork, red beans, apples.” More info at the WSCC website.
WEST SEATTLE HI-YU MEETING: It’s a general meeting, and everyone’s welcome. As noted here earlier today, topics will include ideas for the 2013 float. (If you are looking to catch up on floats from recent years, you can browse through our archive of Hi-Yu coverage for the past five years.) The meeting’s at 6:30 pm, St. John the Baptist Church Hall, on Hanford just east of California.
SNAP CLASS – BE READY! The city’s Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare (SNAP) program brings one of its periodic free classes to West Seattle, 6:30 pm at Delridge Library (Delridge/Brandon). After Superstorm Sandy and the B.C. quake in just the past few weeks, preparedness should be top of mind. (If you can’t make it – a great place to find preparedness info is westseattlebeprepared.org.)
FAMILY STORY TIME: At High Point Library (35th/Raymond), 7 pm.
