    2. Tai Chi on the Beach at Alki
      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      From Ingrid at Georgetown Brewing Company:

      The event is called Bob’s Bowl-A-Rama, and it is the final event of our fundraising for Ronald McDonald House Charities for 2014.

      Charles “Bob” Hirsch was the inspiration for our beer, Bob’s Brown Ale. Manny, one of Georgetown Brewing Co.’s founders, met Bob when he was a counselor at Camp Goodtimes and Bob was a camper. Bob fought cancer for half of his life, and when he passed away, the company decided to brew a beer in his honor and donate all of the proceeds. Bob’s mom chose RMHC as the recipient charity for our donation saying “They put us up for treatment every time we came in from Alaska.” For the past 9 years, we’ve released Bob’s Brown Ale on Bob’s birthday, May 14th, and have raised over $400,000 to date. Even if folks can’t buy a lane, even if they just come out for a pint of Bob’s Brown Ale and buy a raffle ticket, that would be great.

      Bob’s Bowl-A-Rama starts at 7 pm Thursday August 28th at West Seattle Bowl and if you’re interested in a lane, sign up ASAP – here’s all the info.

    2. Tai Chi on the Beach at Alki
      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      2:45 pm – 5:00 pm

      From Principal Julie Breidenbach at Fairmount Park Elementary:

      “The teachers are ready to meet their students at the Open House on Tuesday. The ribbon cutting event will be out in the courtyard at 2:45 with classrooms open for visitation from 3:00­ ‐ 5:00. Please do not come earlier that day as the upper area of the building will be closed so that teachers can finish last minute planning and setup.

      Look for adults in bright blue shirts (with the Fairmount Park logo on front) for classroom assignment information.

      Parking for the Open House is going to be challenging. Please walk if you are able to. It will be less stressful for your entire family to park 4 – 5 blocks away and have a peaceful walk to the school grounds.”

      Categories: Music

      Tuesday September 2nd, 8:00 pm at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), Cory P. McDaniels & The Gone Johnson Revue performs at the BLUES TO DO weekly live event.

      Cory P. McDaniels is a veteran entertainer playing a blend of blues, roots ‘n roll, jazz-Americana, and some good travelin’ music, telling great stories, winding through life like a Northwest Grateful Dead or Blues Brothers. Rekindled from Seattle bands Butterfat and Earthquake & The Tremors, The GJR includes Billy Reed on keyboards, (Kathi McDonald, Jeff & The Jet City Fliers), Donnie Teasdale on percussion vocals & mandolin, Ed Rooney on bass and remarks, and Bill Frazer on lap steel, guitar, sound engineering and more, with special guests Daddy Treetops and Easy Eddie King. FYI: “Gone Johnson” is an old expression alluding to the mental deterioration of a person. The GJR provides unhinged and misguided entertainment for the Northwest.

      The cool part is the shows are going to be recorded live for TV and the music streamed as it happens on the Internet. More info on BLUES TO DO series here.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      Join your neighbors and colleagues and fellow urban farmers every Thursday, 5–7 pm, starting March 13, at the Community Orchard of West Seattle.

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm


      West Seattle Meaningful Movies and the Southwest Seattle Historical Society presents:
      Princess Angeline

      Princess Angeline is a documentary by award-winning Seattle filmmakers Sandy and Yasu Osawa. They will both be attending this screening.

      Princess Angeline was the daughter of Chief Seattle. She was one of the few Duwamish people left in Seattle by the 1890s, only thirty-five years after the peace treaty was signed guaranteeing that land would be reserved for the Duwamish people (which never happened).

      The Duwamish Tribe was recognized at the end of the Clinton administration, only to have that recognition overturned by the incoming Bush administration. With historical photographs, interviews, and narration, this documentary explores the story of the Duwamish people and their unrecognized tribal status. The beautiful Duwamish Longhouse is here in West Seattle—on West Marginal Way, close to the Duwamish River. Come learn about and consider taking action on behalf of Seattle’s First People.

      The movie is 53 minutes long. There will be a discussion with the filmmakers following the movie.

      Saturday, September 6, at 7:00 pm
      at High Point Neighborhood House
      (Bus numbers 21 and 128)
      (come at 6:30, for refreshments and to meet your neighbors)

Volunteers can expect to pitch in for a variety of restoration activities including removing invasive plants, mulching, and forest maintenance. Planting occurs October-March, and summer months also include forest monitoring.

      We blend art and nature in everything that we do. Performing artists “play in the woods” during many of our work parties, and include singers and instrumentalists. Learn more and sign up today at www.naturec.org/volunteer.

    6. Cooking with Class 2014 @ Salty's on Alki
      6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      From Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor):

      You’ve tossed down a few raw oysters from Taylor Shellfish and paired them with a great oyster wine — maybe the Firesteed Pinot Gris or Alexandria Nicole’s Albariño — out on Salty’s private-dining deck with a view of Seattle’s skyline across Elliott Bay. Now you’re ready to meet your chefs and get to work! This is Cooking with Class 2014, Tuesday, September 9, 6:00 to 9:30 pm. at Salty’s on Alki Beach in West Seattle.

      Participants choose three chefs and interact with them, actually making the dishes and learning their techniques.

      * 22 top Northwest chefs provide hands-on training to small groups of 8.
      * Each chef trains three groups of people for 30 minutes each.
      * Wineries pair their wines with the chefs’ food.
      * Live auction and door prizes with your hosts John Curley and Chef Jeremy McLachlan of Salty’s Seafood Grills.

      You might learn how to create a broth of spicy tomato and white wine to accent local clams (Canyon River Ranch), pair mango and prawns (Far-Eats), sear scallops in black pepper and vanilla brine (Andaluca) or soft poach an egg for your lobster bisque (Seastar Seattle). You get to choose — there are 22 local, amazing chefs who want to share their cooking tips and ideas on food. Throughout the evening, you work with three chefs in separate, small groups, putting the dish together, eating what you create and pairing it with wine donated/paired by wineries. That lobster bisque should go nicely with the 2012 Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Chardonnay; spot prawns with fresh corn polenta (Salish Lodge & Spa) will be a delight with Sparkman’s 2012 Apparition blend of Roussane, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne. Purple’s Spanish-style mussels will be set off perfectly with Dusted Valley’s 2012 Cabernet Franc.

      Date: Tuesday, September 9th
      Time: 6:00 to 9:30 pm
      Cost: $150 per person (must be 21 or older)
      Location: Salty’s on Alki Duwamish Room (Private Dining Downstairs)

      You’ll need to head to the website at seattledining.com/cwc to look over the chefs and their dishes, the wine pairings and see what you’d like to learn this year. Included you will find Salty’s on Alki Executive Chef Paolo Carey-DiGregorio, Alki Pastry Chef Jena Sorbera and Redondo Executive Chef Gabriel Cabrera. Sign up online, pay through PayPal, and you’ll be ready to go. We’ll send you a confirmation and you’ll see the auction book in advance to plan your strategy. It’s an evening you won’t want to miss.

      The cost of your entry tickets, raffle tickets and auction purchases helps others: the residents and participants of Providence ElderPlace and Providence Heritage House at the Market. These programs care for frail, low-income seniors, and the proceeds from Cooking with Class help fill in the gaps, making lives more comfortable and enjoyable. We can all appreciate what it must feel like to outlive your savings or family members. These programs provide care, socialization and, very importantly, the right to continue making your own decisions and direct your life to the best of your ability.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      Interesting history of the park here.

Visited by a mysterious young woman and forced to confront the meaning of his life, his destiny, and his own humanity, we are given a glimpse into the person behind his revered leadership. Gripping, daring, and powerful, this play melds humanness with legacy, and mortality with spirituality. Your heart will be touched and your soul stirred.

      he Orchard St Ravine work party schedule for 2014 is for the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Come any time between those hours.

      This is a great opportunity to meet new neighbors and catch up with friends, while maintaining your local park. The ravine looks beautiful at this time of year but needs a little TLC. There are plenty of ways to contribute. The parks department crew cleared quite a few blackberries last month, but they left behind a few roots that we need to remove. The trails need trimming and there are wood chips to spread. Or just come to say “hello”. We would love to see you!

      If you plan to come, please register beforehand at http://seattle.cedar.greencitypartnerships.org/. It’s easy to do. Just find the Orchard Street Ravine under “Filter by Park”, click on the work party, and then “Join this Event”.

    4. Tai Chi on the Beach at Alki
      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

    8. Camp Long Mountain Fest
      11:00 am – 5:00 pm

      Seattle Parks and Recreation invites you and your family to celebrate Camp Long Mountain Fest and the 75th anniversary of Schurman Rock from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Sunday, September 14th, 2014.

      Camp Long Mountain Fest celebrates Seattle’s mountain climbing history and community. Visitors can challenge themselves on the high ropes course and try climbing and rappelling on Schurman Rock (with waivers). There will be mountain games and interactive workshops for people of all ages and abilities and prizes will be awarded. Jim Whittaker, the first American to climb Mount Everest, is scheduled to attend.

      All events are free and take place at Camp Long (5200 35th Ave. SW).

      Schurman Rock was constructed between 1938 and 1939 by the Work Progress Administration, and is believed to be the first man-made climbing structure in America. It was originally named Monitor Rock because climbing instructors could monitor their students from all sides of the structure. In 1957, it was renamed to honor Clark Schurman who designed it.

      Schurman, known as “The Chief,” was the chief climbing guide on Mount Rainier from 1938 to 1941. As a climber, he sketched and painted his journeys into a book published by The Mountaineers in 1939. Schurman thought it was important for novice climbers to have a practice rock. Schurman Rock stands as a legacy to his vision.

      For more information about Camp Long Mountain Fest, please call 206-423-3460 or visit seattle.gov/environment/rock.htm. Camp Long Mountain Fest is sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Associated Recreation Council, O2 Outdoor Opportunities and Mountain Madness.

      Dolphins Lead Eco Bike Tour of Longfellow Creek

      Greetings everyone…
      Just wanted to invite you to a southwest community event led by two Denny teachers taking place on Sept 27th starting at 9 am. Andrew Chase and Ben Evans will be leading a bilingual (Spanish & English) bike tour of Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail to connect students and their families to local ecology.

      The Dolphin’s 6th Grade Bog to Bay Project connects kids and their families to local ecology, in particular with Longfellow Creek. Denny teachers, Andrew Chase and Ben Evans, will be hosting a bilingual bike tour of the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail with as many students/families from the community as possible on Saturday, September 27th.

      Route: From Roxbury, we will follow the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail. The trail is well-marked and easy to follow. It is approximately 4 miles one way. There are a couple of places where you will have to carry your bike up/down some stairs. Dress appropriately for Seattle!

      Start: Saturday, September 27th at 9 am at the baseball fields next to Roxhill Elementary School on SW Roxbury Street.

      Finish: About 11 am at The Dragonfly Pavilion (28th Ave SW and SW Dakota Street) or by noon back at SW Roxbury St./Roxhill Elementary.
