Thanks to Chris Frankovich for sharing his photo of an eagle in Friday night’s sunset. The beautiful view of our biggest waterway – and its wildlife – brings us to the start of today’s short list from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
WORLD WATER WEEK: Today marks the start of the fourth annual “ideas festival” at Chief Sealth International High School – as previewed here – focusing this year on plastic pollution. The big public community event is tomorrow night’s keynote by Chris Jordan.
COUNCIL VOTE ON PARK EXPANSION: Last week, as reported here, a City Council committee OK’d the purchase of land to expand Dakota Place Park northward. The final vote is on today’s 2 pm council agenda. The meeting starts with public comment, if you have anything to say (here’s the agenda); if you want to watch from afar, it’ll be live via cablecast and web stream via Seattle Channel.
TRIVIA/PUB QUIZ: Three venues are on our calendar with trivia/pub quiz events on Monday nights – Christo’s at 7, OutWest at 7:30, Shadowland at 8.
ONE WEEK UNTIL WEST SEATTLE COMMUNITY GARAGE SALE DAY REGISTRATION: Signups start next Monday (March 31st) for the 10th annual West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day, coming up Saturday, May 10th, hundreds of sales big and small around the peninsula, coordinated by us here at WSB. Watch here and on the official WSCGSD website!
