    3. 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.

      Contact Lao-Shi (teacher) Caylen Storm at 206-385- 8841 or Caylen@stormtaichi.com

    3. Author Hedrick Smith discusses “Who Stole the American Dream?” @ Artswest Playhouse and Gallery
      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery is pleased to announce an Evening with Hedrick Smith – an enlightening discussion of politics and economic policy.

      Join ArtsWest on Monday, July 21 as we welcome the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Who Stole the American Dream?, an eye-opening account of U.S. political and economic history that reveals how, over the past four decades, the American Dream has been dismantled and we became two Americas.

      Hedrick Smith is a bestselling author, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, and Emmy Award-winning producer. His books The Russians and The Power Game were critically acclaimed bestsellers and are widely used in college courses today. As a reporter at The New York Times, Smith shared a Pulitzer for the Pentagon Papers series and won a Pulitzer for his international reporting from Russia in 1971-1974. Smith’s prime-time specials for PBS have won several awards for examining systematic problems in modern America and offering insightful, prescriptive solutions.

      Smith’s new book, Who Stole the American Dream? is full of surprises and revelations – the accidental beginnings of the 401(k) plan, with disastrous economic consequences for many; the major policy changes that began under Jimmy Carter; how the New Economy disrupted America’s engine of shared prosperity; the “virtuous circle” of growth; and how America lost the title of “Land of Opportunity.” Smith documents the transfer of $6 trillion in middle-class wealth from home-owners to banks even before the housing boom went bust, and how the U.S. policy tilt favoring the rich is stunting America’s economic growth.

      The Fauntleroy Community Service Agency invites you to hear about a groundbreaking, socially minded investment opportunity while learning about plans for updates to our Schoolhouse. We have partnered with Semble, a Washington-based business that is helping non-profits significantly lower the cost of capital projects by calling on their own communities to become investors, rather than using more traditional financing sources.

      Come learn how you can become an investor in the future of the Fauntleroy Schoolhouse and preserve its rich heritage. (This is not a donation but rather an investment that will earn you a rate of return.)

      We hope to see you!

      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.

    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.

      Contact Lao-Shi (teacher) Caylen Storm at 206-385- 8841 or Caylen@stormtaichi.com

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.

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.”

      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.

      Windermere Collecting Donations for “Kicks for Kids” Sneaker Drive – Sizes 1-9 sneakers can be donated at any Seattle-area Windermere Real Estate location August 1- 15 or at Windermere Summer Splash event at Green Lake on August 16

      Windermere offices in the greater Seattle area are serving as collection centers for the company’s “Kicks for Kids” sneaker drive for low income youth. Beginning August 1, new or gently used sneakers in kid’s sizes 1-9 can be dropped off at any Seattle area Windermere office. You can also bring them to the Windermere Summer Splash event on Saturday, August 16 at Green Lake, where Gentle Giants Moving Company will collect the sneakers and deliver them to King County Boys and Girls Club, and Mary’s Place, in time for the first day of school.

      “Studies show that when kids feel good about their appearance, it improves both their self-esteem and their performance in school,” said OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate. “We think every child deserves to start the school year on the right foot, so with the public’s help, we’re determined to make that happen for as many kids as possible.”

      The two-week Kicks for Kids sneaker drive will end on August 16 at the Windermere Summer Splash event at Green Lake. Together, with partners Seattle Parks and Recreation and the George Pocock Rowing Foundation, this free, daylong event will celebrate summer fun and healthy activities for families.

      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.

      West Seattle Meaningful Movies presents:
      The Economics of Happiness

      The Economics of Happiness describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. On the one hand, government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power. At the same time, people around the world are resisting those policies. Far from the old institutions of power, they’re starting to forge a different future. Communities are coming together to build more human-scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm: an economics of localization.

      Saturday, August 2, 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)

      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.

      Our employee Ron Ackerson recently lost his home due to a fire July 17th, 2014. Ron and his wife Shaa are a blended family of 15 made up of Ron’s 5 kids, Shaa’s 4 kids, and their 3 children together. Additionally, Shaa’s little sister died in 2011 and they have full permanent full custody of her daughter, and Ron’s sister became mentally ill and they have full permanent custody of her daughter.

      Due to the tragic fire, Ron’s family is now separated because they are homeless. Our heart breaks for Ron and Shaa, they cannot stand to be apart because they have always been a tight knit family unit.

    4. Orchard St Ravine Work Party
      9:00 am – 1:00 pm

      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”.

    5. 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.

      Contact Lao-Shi (teacher) Caylen Storm at 206-385- 8841 or Caylen@stormtaichi.com

    9. South Delridge raingarden project: ‘Walk and talk’
      6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      West Seattle’s next roadside-raingarden project, officially dubbed the Delridge Natural Drainage System, is in the “early design” process. Next chance for neighbors to get updates and ask questions has just been announced – a “project-design walk-and-talk” event on Tuesday, August 12th, starting at the corner of 17th and Elmgrove (map) at 6 pm. The updates, according to this postcard that’s on its way to nearby mailboxes, will include a chance to “review proposed design concepts and plantings.” Like the county-initiated “green stormwater infrastructure” raingardens under construction in Westwood and Sunrise Heights, the goal is to reduce the stormwater going into the combined-sewer system, which in turn should reduce overflows at the end of the line. Construction is scheduled for next year.

      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      From the Highland Park Action Committee:

      While we are not meeting over the summer during our regular meeting time, we are calling a special meeting in response to requests heard at our last meeting. Please join us at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden on Tuesday, August 12th at 7 pm to discuss Highland Park Elementary. We sent the following invitation to school and city officials:

      + +
      Dear Principal Cronas, your colleagues at Seattle Public School, City Council Members Burgess and Bagshaw, and Mayor Murray,

      We are the Co-Chairs of the Highland Park Action Committee, a community group that advocates for the Highland Park and Riverview Neighborhoods in Southwest Seattle. Our role is to affect positive change in our neighborhood, and we have historically been active in bringing together a voice for our neighborhood, which has faced many challenges.

      We hosted parent Peter Weiss at our May community meeting, who came to speak with us as a member of the Highland Park Elementary’s PTA. In discussing his ideas with us to organize a 5K as a fundraiser for the school, the community learned about the state of affairs for our local school- Highland Park Elementary is ranked last in the Seattle Public School System.

      Some of our members were brought to tears with this news, exhausted by what feels like yet another blind eye turned towards our community from our leaders. We write to you in response to a request that night from the community to get some answers as to why our school is doing so badly and what the plan is for improvement. We have since discussed this idea with the PTA and have formed a partnership in our efforts. We, along with incoming PTA president Sol Mendez, would like to invite you to a meeting to discuss the school, and answer some questions from our community.

      Please let us know if you can join us at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden on Tuesday, August 12th at 7 pm.

      Sincerely,
      Carolyn and Billy Stauffer (Co-Chairs, Highland Park Action Committee)
      Sol Mendez (President, Highland Park Elementary PTA)

      Invitation Sent To:
      Chris Cronas – Principal, Highland Park Elementary
      Marty McLaren – School Board member
      Israel Vela – Executive Director of Schools for West Seattle
      Michael Tolley – Assistant Supt for Teaching and Learning
      Shauna Heath – Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction

      “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.”
