Ready to go into all-out holiday mode? The WSB West Seattle Holiday Events and Info page is now live – the one-stop guide to what’s happening now through New Year’s in our area, everything from free Thanksgiving dinners to Santa photos, tree lightings, bazaars, tree lots, the Christmas Ship’s stops, and MUCH more. We will continue to update it daily (if not more often) throughout the season, as we have always done, and we in fact have a few more things to add this morning. Meantime, the following is a quick roundup of today’s calendar highlights, including several ways to provide holiday help (you can always get the FIRST look by checking in now and then on our regular calendar):
WHITE CENTER FOOD BANK TURKEY DROPOFF IN WEST SEATTLE: They’ll have a refrigerated van at Fauntleroy Church (9140 California SW) at 11 am. Details, and other ways to help WC Food Bank, in our roundup from earlier this week.
