Thanks to William Larson for sharing that photo of Troop 284 Scouts helping to mark veterans’ graves, as they do every year, at Forest Lawn, where today’s traditional West Seattle Memorial Day service will happen at 2 pm. That’s part of our info list for today, starting with some holiday basics:
TRANSPORTATION: Metro is on a Sunday schedule … The West Seattle Water Taxi also is on a Sunday schedule (but there’s no Vashon WT service) … Sound Transit buses are on a Sunday schedule … The Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth state-ferry route is on a regular Monday schedule.
TRASH/RECYCLING/ETC.: If you have Monday pickup, it’s normal service today, says Seattle Public Utilities; the South Transfer Station is open normal Monday hours, too.
CITY PARKING HOLIDAY: No charge to park today in Seattle neighborhoods with city-operated pay stations/meters.
NO MAIL, NO BANKS … though on occasion we hear of a bank branch open on a holiday, so if you happen onto one, let us know!
CITY-RUN COMMUNITY CENTERS AND SOUTHWEST POOL … closed today.
Also happening today:
LOW-LOW TIDE, WITH BEACH NATURALISTS: Today’s low tide is almost as low as yesterday’s (did you see WSB readers’ photos/video?) – at 1:11 pm, it’ll be out to -3.4 feet. That’s right in the middle of the four-hour period when you will find Seattle Aquarium beach naturalists at Constellation and Lincoln Parks, 11 am-3 pm.
MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE: All are welcome at Forest Lawn (WSB sponsor) at 2 pm for the traditional Memorial Day service/commemoration presented by American Legion Post 160 – look for the canopy on the green, across from FL’s building and parking. (6701 30th SW)
