Get decked out in your antlers and Santa hats, bring your elves and do a leisurely 2-3 mile run/walk to view the Christmas lights of West Seattle. As always we will end at the Helmstetler Hacienda for the big extravaganza! Feel free to bring a canned food item for donation. We will serve Christmas cookies (probably not homemade) and hot chocolate and cider afterwards. Remember to wear lights to see the sidewalks and reflective gear so that cars can see you. We think battery operated christmas light strands do quite nicely for this purpose. Merry Christmas!!

      Breakin’ Up Christmas Concert and Square Dance
      featuring Erynn Marshall & Carl Jones from Galax, VA, with local support from Charmaine Slaven, Tony Mates, Catherine Alexander!

      There is a southern Appalachian tradition during the 12 days between December 25 and “Old Christmas” (January 5th) of having house parties and dances. Rugs are rolled back and the music and dancing continue in the wee hours, with revelers sometimes going house-to-house. More info about the tradition of “breaking up Christmas” in this article out of Galax, VA.

      We’re fortunate to be having masters of the old time music tradition, Carl Jones and Erynn Marshall, who live in Galax, Virginia will be passing through town during that time. Carl and Erynn will perform a concert before the dance, then will be joined by Tony Mates on bass, Catherine Alexander on guitar, and Charmaine Slaven who will teach and call the dances! No experience needed!

      No table seats for this show. General admission $10; seniors and students $8.
      $4 for children 12 and under.

      To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net with your request. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation. For complete program information, please visit www.kenyonhall.org.

    2. West Seattle Polar Bear Swim 2015 at Alki
      10:00 am – 11:00 am

      This starts from the sandy section of Alki, right across from Duke’s (58th/Alki) on January 1st, 2015. From longtime organizer Mark Ufkes:

      West Seattle Polar Bear Swim is on!

      2015, The year of the Sheep – a symbol pf peace, harmony, co-existence, and tranquility. A nurturing year, which the world can always use more of.

      The annual West Seattle Polar Bear swim starts at 10 am sharp on January 1 each year. Arrive a few minutes early.

      We line up all along the beach, have a count down, and at 10 am sharp, we hold hands and run into the water together. Each year, the swim gets bigger. Over 500 swimmers fanned out in a long line along the beach and joined us last year. It is a great way to wash away the complexities of the previous year, and celebrate the unlimited potential that awaits each of us in the new year. Year after year, Polar Bear swimmers declare that this ritual creates a sense of renewal, and helps make the new year be stronger and more positive.

      Traditionally, Duke’s restaurant generously provides free clam chowder and local families bring hot chocolate for the crowd. Afterwards, Alki beach is full of hundreds of smiling swimmers and their families and friends. Come join the fun. Do the West Seattle Polar Bear swim. You will have a great time!

    3. Words, Writers & West Seattle: Christine Brant @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle” Presents Award Winning Author Christine Brant.

      Southwest Seattle Historical Society sponsors adult fantasy “Red and Grey” at the January 2nd First Friday event.

      In her re-creation of the folktale “Little Red Riding Hood”, Christine Brant constructs a mystical universe that contains a rich history and many layers of detail in “Red and Grey” (Darl Dragon Publishing, June 10, 2013). However, it is so much more than a simple retelling of the original; in this book Brant engages in “extensive world-building” and develops those worlds and the main characters to an end that brings color back to a monochromatic existence.

      The public is invited to this FREE presentation on FFriday, January 2nd from 5 pm to 7 pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      In “Red and Grey” the author has created a plot full of surprises, changing a child’s bedtime tale into an entertaining adult story by combining fairy tale lore with werewolf mythology, without werewolves. She won the Surrey International Storytellers Award in 2007 with her short story “A Decade of Scottsdale”.

      Christine Brant is a West Seattle author who lives with her husband, three children, two cats, and Bob, the Ball Python. In her spare time, when not herding cats and kids, she loves to read, write, do cross-stitching and gaze out her window at the Puget Sound.

      Words, Writers & West Seattle’s next FIRST FRIDAY book talk is scheduled for February 6th and will feature West Seattle author Theresa McCormick, Ed.D. and her book “A Far Cry From Here: Growing Up and Out of Fundamentalism”. Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by calling Dora-Faye Hendricks, chair, “Words, Writers & West Seattle”, by phone at 206-280-9983, or by e-mail at: Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

      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.

      Friday and Saturday, January 9 and 10, 7:30 pm at Kenyon Hall:

      Peter Mintun in Concert this Friday and Saturday, January 9 and 10, at 7:30 pm.

      I belong to a not-very-exclusive club of professional pianists who would give anything to play like Peter Mintun. Michael Feinstein put it succinctly: When I grow up, I want to be Peter Mintun. Liberace once sat in admiration listening to Peter, and greeted him warmly and respectfully after the performance. Other keyboard artists, such as Michael Tilson Thomas, Bobby Short, and Max Morath are fans.

      What distinguishes this artist? For me it’s the style, accuracy, humor, and grace with which he flies over the keys. He negotiates wildly contrasting moods with ease. And he pulls it all off with panache, occasionally flashing a subtly playful smile.

      Peter and I have been friends for many years, and this summer I visited him in his Washington Heights digs. At one point I heard what I assumed was Peter at the piano. When I got to the parlor, I saw that his player piano was responsible. Then I remembered that that’s how, as a young man, Peter learned to play the music of the 20s and 30s. Never mind that the piano rolls were often produced using the equivalent of two pianists. He figured out how to execute those complex arrangements with only two hands!

      For Peter’s concerts, we’re importing a Kawai grand, which means that our Chickering will be available for a little two-piano foolishness, and I plan to take advantage of that. Please join us!

      Reserved table seats are $14, and row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. Elementary, middle & high school students are $5. Pre-school children are free.

      Tuesday January 13th, 8:00 pm at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor):
      Blues To Do Live features Tweet & the Tom-Cats.

      There is a lot of natural talent in Tweety & The Tom-Cats, which features Gina “Tweety” Holloway on sax and vocals. Tweey’s voice is rich and dynamic with gospel influences, which translates to her sweet tenor saxophone tone as well. With big band in her background, Tweety powers the Tom-Cats with soulful solos which has led to her opening for Elvin Bishop and Big Brother & The Holding Company, among others. On guitar and vocals, George Michael vamps on everything from Van Morrison to Van Halen and has opened for Shania Twain, Average White Band, Brooks & Dunn and more. Also a native of Chicago, Tom Austin mixes rhythmic stability with harmonic blend on his four and five stringed basses.

      “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.

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.”

      AGENDA
      Meeting of Wednesday, January 14, 2015

      7:00 PM – Agenda

      Every two years all Democratic Party Organizations in Washington reorganize – elect new officers and appoint new committee chairs. Our reorganization meeting is Wednesday, January 14, 7:00 PM at the Hall at Fauntleroy. Any Democrat is welcome to attend. Only PCOs elected in the August, 2014, primary election can vote for most officers, but all 2015 members can vote for Treasurer and Secretary (see our by-laws, Article IV, Section 2). Although it is preferred that PCOs pay some level of membership dues, it isn’t a requirement for elected PCOs to vote. A list of PCOs who were elected in August, 2014, and are eligible to vote is here. Members who are NOT PCOs must pay 2015 membership dues in order to vote – you can do so online here or at the meeting. Proxy voting is not allowed.

      An elected officer of the King County Democratic Central Committee will convene the meeting and conduct the election for the Chair. Then the newly elected Chair will conduct the election for all other officers and will recommend committee chairs and ask for membership approval of those chairs (all 2015 members can vote). Detailed information is available in the Official Call here (PDF Document). Here is a webpage showing the announced candidates for our elected positions.

      Old Business / New Business

      • Endorsements may be considered. Highline School District will have a bond measure on the February 10th ballot. See more information here.

      • Resolutions

      • PCO Appointments – If you are interested in serving as an appointed or acting PCO, appointments will be done directly after the elections at the re-organization meeting. Please let Les Treall know as soon as possible at les.treall@gmail.com or (206) 948-5423.

      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.

Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

    10. Kitty Harbor special adoption event
      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm


      Kitty Harbor Special Adoption Event During Martin Luther King’s Weekend

      Jan 17th
      & 18th, Sat/Sun Noon–5 pm

      Kitty Harbor and Prevent Homeless Pets are combining forces for a special adoption weekend. Together, we have 55+ plus cats, teens and kittens that are looking to adopt you. Yes, you! Twenty lovely adult cats and 40 kittens/teenagers are anxiously waiting to meet and greet you. They do not want to have to stay in foster homes until Kitty Harbor reopens the 1st weekend of June!

      Where do these cats come from?

      1. Kitty Harbor rescues cats and kittens from the greater West Seattle area and from King, Pierce and Snohomish shelters that are over-capacity, which can result in euthanasia of healthy felines.

      2. Prevent Homeless Pets rescues cats and kittens East of the mountains—where the municipal shelter kill rate is 70% – 90%, depending on the County/area.

      Please help us spread the word about the adoption event this weekend. And if you are looking for some furry love, get yourself here.

    12. The Seattle Solidarity March for Lolita @ Alki Beach Park
      1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

      The Seattle Solidarity March for Lolita, a Southern Resident Killer Whale who has been in captivity for 44 years, will be held Saturday, January 17, 2015, at Alki Beach Park. Participants will gather at 1:00 p.m. at the Statue of Liberty Plaza, at the intersection of Alki Ave S.W. and 61st Ave. S.W., with the march beginning at 1:15 p.m.

      The public is invited to this peaceful demonstration of our support for Lolita, and our hope that she will be allowed to retire and return to her home in the Salish Sea. The theme of the march is “She’s there now, but she belongs here.” We will walk approximately one mile along the accessible pedestrian pathway; signs are welcome.

      This grassroots march is being held in conjunction with the Miracle March for Lolita at the Miami SeaQuarium in Miami, Florida, where Lolita currently performs. Over 1000 people from around the world are expected to demonstrate in support of Lolita in Miami, as well as at marches in San Diego, Los Angeles, Colorado Springs, Germany and the UK. These events are in anticipation of the National Atmospheric and Aviation Administration’s decision on how the Endangered Species Act should apply to Lolita, which is due at the end of the month.
