From the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar (and the inbox), eight highlights/notes for today/tonight:
SPYDER MOWER IN ACTION: Seattle Parks shares the heads-up that you will see a piece of heavy equipment known as a Spyder mower in action clearing overgrowth/invasives today at West Seattle Golf Course and Rotary Viewpoint Park (best known for its totem pole, at 35th/Alaska).
SALUTE TO SOUTH: With the school year starting next Monday at South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor), today is the annual celebratory community reception, and you’re invited. SSCC president Gary Oertli and faculty will be there, too. Northwest Wine Academy on campus, light refreshments including some of NWA’s student-produced wine, 3:30-5:30 pm. (6000 16th SW)
