Sunday Community Service to Serve the God of Mother Nature @ Lincoln Park
Jan 22 @ 11:00 am – 1:30 pm

January 22, 2017 @ 11:00 am–1:30 pm, Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures invites you to:

Sunday Community Service to Serve the God of Mother Nature
Attend a Sunday service of a different sort! In honor of the god of Mother Nature we will have a community gathering to serve her by strategically sacrificing weeds in her honor. Also, as part of the service there will be a sermon on strategies of how to make the most of sacrificing of the weeds to get the maximum mileage towards the preservation of the ancient art of the god of Mother Nature. These strategies will also apply to helping help her recover the maximum amount of her natural health, natural wealth, and natural beauty as she can. This is a health, wealth and beauty that has been in decline ever since the culture of the allegorical Able and Cain, the animal, and plant and land controllers, and the culture of the legendary King David the gold hoarder, started taking control of the planet and its populace.

We will meet at the kiosk at the northern of the 2 parking lots at Lincoln Park, across from Rose St. No pre-registration required.

And don’t worry about sitting in a stuffy temple, church or mosque, listening to a boring sermon, as the sermon will be delivered either while walking or sitting outdoors in a relatively beautiful natural area. As you will either be pleasantly plucking at the sacrificial weeds, wildly ripping them out by their roots, or just enjoying being in nature, if you prefer, you can ignore the sermon! And if you have had enough before 1:30 you can always peel off early!

While all weed sacrifice can be done bare handed, if you have a pair of work gloves, and maybe a Hori Hori weeding knife, you could bring them.

Mothers And Sons @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
Jan 22 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Mothers And Sons
By Terrence McNally; directed by Makaela Pollock

January 19 – February 11, 2017
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

ArtsWest is pleased to announce MOTHERS AND SONS, the Tony Award-nominated play about a mother’s reckoning with the life and legacy of her late son, opening at the ArtWest Playhouse and Gallery on January 19. Performances will run Thursday through Sunday until February 11.

The ArtsWest production of MOTHERS AND SONS stars local legend Suzy Hunt, a veteran actress with credits ranging from Broadway to the 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT and beyond, in the role of the bereaved mother Katharine Gerard. When Katharine pays an unexpected visit to her late son’s former partner, Cal (played by Evan Whitfield), their conversation forces them to confront both the past and the present – and later, when Cal’s husband and young son arrive, Katharine discovers she must also consider the future. Intimate and big-hearted, MOTHERS AND SONS is a mesmerizing story of love, grief and family.

MOTHERS AND SONS is directed by ArtsWest Producing Associate Makaela Pollock, whose work has appeared at the Seattle Shakespeare Company, the 5th Avenue Theatre, Intiman Theatre and many more, including the 2016 ArtsWest production of REALLY REALLY. Rounding out the Creative Team for MOTHERS AND SONS are additional longtime ArtsWest collaborators, including Scenic Designer Christopher Mumaw (DEATH OF A SALESMAN, VIOLET, and LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL) Lighting Designer Ryan Dunn (MY MAÑANA COMES and ANGRY HOUSEWIVES), and Costume Designer Pete Rush (4000 MILES).

Tickets (ranging from $17 – $37.50) may be purchased online at www.artswest.org, by phone at 206.938.0339, or at the Box Office Thurs.–Sat. 2–7:30 pm.

Jan 26 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Mothers And Sons
By Terrence McNally; directed by Makaela Pollock

January 19 – February 11, 2017
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

ArtsWest is pleased to announce MOTHERS AND SONS, the Tony Award-nominated play about a mother’s reckoning with the life and legacy of her late son, opening at the ArtWest Playhouse and Gallery on January 19. Performances will run Thursday through Sunday until February 11.

The ArtsWest production of MOTHERS AND SONS stars local legend Suzy Hunt, a veteran actress with credits ranging from Broadway to the 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT and beyond, in the role of the bereaved mother Katharine Gerard. When Katharine pays an unexpected visit to her late son’s former partner, Cal (played by Evan Whitfield), their conversation forces them to confront both the past and the present – and later, when Cal’s husband and young son arrive, Katharine discovers she must also consider the future. Intimate and big-hearted, MOTHERS AND SONS is a mesmerizing story of love, grief and family.

MOTHERS AND SONS is directed by ArtsWest Producing Associate Makaela Pollock, whose work has appeared at the Seattle Shakespeare Company, the 5th Avenue Theatre, Intiman Theatre and many more, including the 2016 ArtsWest production of REALLY REALLY. Rounding out the Creative Team for MOTHERS AND SONS are additional longtime ArtsWest collaborators, including Scenic Designer Christopher Mumaw (DEATH OF A SALESMAN, VIOLET, and LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL) Lighting Designer Ryan Dunn (MY MAÑANA COMES and ANGRY HOUSEWIVES), and Costume Designer Pete Rush (4000 MILES).

Tickets (ranging from $17 – $37.50) may be purchased online at www.artswest.org, by phone at 206.938.0339, or at the Box Office Thurs.–Sat. 2–7:30 pm.

Pundamonium @ Skylark Café & Club
Jan 26 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Pundamonium​, ​the ​slam-style punmaking contest ​is now permanently on the 4th Thursday of each month at the Skylark Café and Club.

​Sign up at 7 pm, puns at 8 pm–10 pm.​

In case you’re wondering what Pundamonium entails…​One by one,​ ​10 contestants have two minutes each to make puns based on prompts they have received ahead of time. Each contestant is immediately judged by five members of the audience, who have been selected before the show to be judges. They rank each punner on a scale of 1 to 10, often with hilariously long decimals and other commentary.

Then they do it again, only this time contestants get their prompts on stage and only have 30 seconds to think and another two minutes to make puns.

The top four contestants go head to head in a final pun-off.

The winner this month will receive a $50 gift certificate for The Skylark, redeemable immediately! ​

Harold Lloyd Silent Comedy Double Feature @ Kenyon Hall
Jan 27 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Harold Silent Comedy Double Feature, with Dennis James at the Mighty Wurlitzer. Whenever Dennis hits town, we can be assured of masterful, erudite playing, this time illuminating the movies of one of the silent era’s most inventive and brilliant comedy actors, Harold Lloyd. Dennis will accompany two classic Lloyd films, For Heaven’s Sake and Dr. Jack.

In the 20s Lloyd was the most successful movie comic of his day. His characters were about as far removed from the age of slapstick as you can find—sort of an bespectacled everyman who actually looked very normal but who managed to somehow do amazing things.

This will be Dennis’s only performance at Kenyon Hall this winter. Don’t miss it!

Tickets and Reservations
Reserved table seats are $14. 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.

Revamped High Point Branch Library – Celebration!
Jan 29 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The public is invited to enjoy refreshments and celebrate the improvements at The Seattle Public Library’s High Point Branch from 1 pm to 3 pm Sunday, Jan. 29. City Librarian Marcellus Turner will deliver brief remarks at 1:30 pm.

The 12-year-old branch closed Dec. 5, 2016, so the worn carpeting could be replaced. While the building was closed for that work, the Library also took the opportunity to make other interior improvements that support the changing ways that patrons are using libraries and respond to the thoughtful comments the Library has received from the public.

Improvements included reconfigured holds, teen and children’s areas, additional seating and power in seating areas and at tables, and technology and sound quality enhancements in the meeting room. When the branch reopens, it also will have hundreds of new books, DVDs and CDs for children, teens and adults.

The changes were designed to improve access to technology, make it easier for patrons to interact with one another, and create flexible, open, welcoming spaces throughout the building.

The Library promised to protect the public’s investment in its buildings as part of the 2012 voter-approved Library levy. The High Point Branch improvements are part of the Library’s commitment to ensuring its buildings are well-maintained, clean and comfortable for patrons.

Patrons who picked up their holds at another branch during the closure should talk with a staff member if they need help to restore their holds pickup location to the High Point Branch.

For more information, call the Library at 206-386-4636 or Ask a Librarian.

Seattle Opera’s ‘Katya Kabanova’ preview lecture @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Jan 29 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

On Sunday, January 29, 2017, 2–3:30 pm, everyone is invited to the West Seattle (Admiral) Library’s preview lecture of Seattle Opera’s upcoming production of Janáček’s “Katya Kabanova.”

Join Norm Hollingshead for an entertaining preview lecture of Janáček’s captivating drama “Katya Kabanova.” In this romantic tragedy overflowing with immediately accessible, powerfully original music inspired by Slavic folk songs, the celebrated Czech composer weaves a dreamlike, visceral story of isolation and provincial oppression. Sheltered Katya longs to be free of her dull arranged marriage and dreary home life. Recently awakened to true love, she remains dominated by a monstrous mother-in-law. Can Katya’s fragile world survive when her pent-up passions finally burst forth? This opera dives deep into the emotional turbulence lurking beneath the surface of small town respectability.

This event is co-sponsored by the Seattle Opera.

Library events and programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not required.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Mothers And Sons @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
Jan 29 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Mothers And Sons
By Terrence McNally; directed by Makaela Pollock

January 19 – February 11, 2017
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm

ArtsWest is pleased to announce MOTHERS AND SONS, the Tony Award-nominated play about a mother’s reckoning with the life and legacy of her late son, opening at the ArtWest Playhouse and Gallery on January 19. Performances will run Thursday through Sunday until February 11.

The ArtsWest production of MOTHERS AND SONS stars local legend Suzy Hunt, a veteran actress with credits ranging from Broadway to the 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT and beyond, in the role of the bereaved mother Katharine Gerard. When Katharine pays an unexpected visit to her late son’s former partner, Cal (played by Evan Whitfield), their conversation forces them to confront both the past and the present – and later, when Cal’s husband and young son arrive, Katharine discovers she must also consider the future. Intimate and big-hearted, MOTHERS AND SONS is a mesmerizing story of love, grief and family.

MOTHERS AND SONS is directed by ArtsWest Producing Associate Makaela Pollock, whose work has appeared at the Seattle Shakespeare Company, the 5th Avenue Theatre, Intiman Theatre and many more, including the 2016 ArtsWest production of REALLY REALLY. Rounding out the Creative Team for MOTHERS AND SONS are additional longtime ArtsWest collaborators, including Scenic Designer Christopher Mumaw (DEATH OF A SALESMAN, VIOLET, and LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL) Lighting Designer Ryan Dunn (MY MAÑANA COMES and ANGRY HOUSEWIVES), and Costume Designer Pete Rush (4000 MILES).

Friday February 3rd, 6:30-9:30 pm
Free Community Event: Young Storytellers Project

More:
Teachers at Chief Sealth International High School is working to support our students to hone their storytelling craft and bring it to the Youngstown Stage. We’re also getting help from Danielle K.L. Grégoire – pro story teller, educator and former program manager for The Moth (https://www.facebook.com/TheMoth/) for this event.

One thing that has always been important, perhaps even more now is to reach out and connect. What we know is that while so many communities share the same geography, we rarely actually connect. The lack of connections allows people to believe things about each other that is not true. It makes us vulnerable to fear, to implicit bias and to stereotypes. One of the most beautiful things about our Chief Sealth community is that we actually do connect – across race, across gender, across gender identity, across socioeconomic status, across age, across national origin and citizenship status. We want to share that with the wider community.

This event is different! Our young people will tell their personal stories – about 5 minutes each. Rather than this being a “story slam” we are working with Danielle Gregoire to pilot “messages of support.” Rather than being judged or scored, audience members will have a chance to write small notes about how they connected with the stories. These little love letters will be collected and given to the story tellers! What? Love, support connection between teenagers and adults in their community who might never have had the chance to connect? Isn’t that the world you want?

It’s also at the Youngtown Cultural Arts Center! The place was designed to create connection. If you’ve been there, you know what that feels like. If you haven’t, you’ll love it. And did you know that the “Thelma DeWitty” theater – where this event will be held, was named for the first African American School Teacher in the Seattle Public School District who, you guessed it, taught at the “Old Cooper School.” (okay, longer story but the Youngstown School was renamed “Cooper” for a while before we turned it back into “Youngstown” for its new life as a Cultural Arts Center). Come, bring some food, spend Friday night connecting with new and old friends, hearing stories, and supporting young people.

We’ll learn about the wealth of our local natural community at night. We might see the moon and some stars if the clouds cooperate. While the owls may be quiet and not showing themselves, the herbs, shrubs and trees can’t hide and we can always learn a bit about them or any member of the natural community we can see, hear, smell or taste, and a hike in nature at night is always an adventure!

I ask that people pre-register for me to manage the group size by e-mailing me: ecostewart@gmail.com or phoning me: 206 932-7225 (I still haven’t learned how to use my cell). We meet by the kiosk at the northern of Lincoln Park’s two parking lots, Across from SW Rose St., between SW Thistle St. at the south end, and SW Monroe St. at the north end.

No fee is required, but I ask that people offer any form of support they are comfortable with that would help me continue my efforts to inspire and teach people about the true wealth of nature, while teaching better stewardship of our natural community, building, in the process, a healthier human community.

*Journey Foursquare Church – is a warmly welcoming congregation of Jesus-followers who heed the words of St. Francis of Assisi “Preach the Gospel – using words only if necessary”. We feel the best expression of the compassion of Jesus is not by judging others, but by living His teachings by feeding the poor (we provide a weekly foodbank on Sunday nights), providing clothing for the naked, healing the sick (prayer & assistance) and preaching the good news of Jesus in the prisons & youth detention centers of King County.

Mothers And Sons @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
Feb 5 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Mothers And Sons
By Terrence McNally; directed by Makaela Pollock

January 19 – February 11, 2017
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

ArtsWest is pleased to announce MOTHERS AND SONS, the Tony Award-nominated play about a mother’s reckoning with the life and legacy of her late son, opening at the ArtWest Playhouse and Gallery on January 19. Performances will run Thursday through Sunday until February 11.

The ArtsWest production of MOTHERS AND SONS stars local legend Suzy Hunt, a veteran actress with credits ranging from Broadway to the 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT and beyond, in the role of the bereaved mother Katharine Gerard. When Katharine pays an unexpected visit to her late son’s former partner, Cal (played by Evan Whitfield), their conversation forces them to confront both the past and the present – and later, when Cal’s husband and young son arrive, Katharine discovers she must also consider the future. Intimate and big-hearted, MOTHERS AND SONS is a mesmerizing story of love, grief and family.

MOTHERS AND SONS is directed by ArtsWest Producing Associate Makaela Pollock, whose work has appeared at the Seattle Shakespeare Company, the 5th Avenue Theatre, Intiman Theatre and many more, including the 2016 ArtsWest production of REALLY REALLY. Rounding out the Creative Team for MOTHERS AND SONS are additional longtime ArtsWest collaborators, including Scenic Designer Christopher Mumaw (DEATH OF A SALESMAN, VIOLET, and LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL) Lighting Designer Ryan Dunn (MY MAÑANA COMES and ANGRY HOUSEWIVES), and Costume Designer Pete Rush (4000 MILES).

West Seattle Hi-Yu General Meeting @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
Feb 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm

The next West Seattle Hi Yu general meeting will be held on Monday, February 6th, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 7:45 pm at the Seattle Public Library, West Seattle (Admiral) branch. The topic of discussion will be the 2017 budget.

The West Seattle Hi Yu Board is proposing two (2) versions of the budget: a barebones budget and a re-organization budget. The re-building version focuses on taking a year away from parades and a court(s) to re-build the organization and create a lasting program. The barebones version maintains some semblance of the legacy program with limited participation in events and parades assuming we have a court(s) to participate. Both proposals call for a significant increase in revenue. The budgets can be viewed on Hi Yu’s Facebook page, which can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/WSHiYu.

The Hi Yu Board would like to invite you to come and discuss these proposals. Although there has been some interest from the community to assist in our volunteer efforts, after the October, 2016 meeting, interest and attendance at the general meetings has dropped significantly. While we very much appreciate those who have reached out and are willing to help us continue the organization, it is clear that in order for Hi Yu to continue, we need to have more involvement from the community both in terms of volunteer hours and financial support. Hi Yu is an all-volunteer organization, so while financial support is greatly appreciated and needed, it’s the people that make it run.

The Board is working under the question “What will be missed if Hi Yu is gone?” For many, it’s the nostalgia of the wonderful courts that were for years, the mainstay of Hi Yu. For some, it’s the scholarship opportunity. For others, it’s the opportunity to represent West Seattle in wonderful summer festivals around the region. If you have your own personal answer to the question, what will be missed, and you don’t want to see Hi Yu go away, please join us in working towards re-building Hi Yu.

Free: “The Age of Love” movie screening @ Senior Center of West Seattle
Feb 9 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

The Senior Center of West Seattle is hosting a free screening of the movie “The Age of Love,” a documentary that follows the adventures of 30 seniors who sign up for a first-of-its-kind Speed Dating event exclusively for 70 to 90 year olds.

From anxious anticipation through dates that follow, it’s a comic and poignant tale of intrepid seniors who lay their hearts on the line and discover how dreams and desires change—or don’t change—from first love to the far reaches of life.

People of all ages are invited to join us on Thursday, February 9 at 2pm for this free screening. Call 206 932 4044 x1 to register. This screening is sponsored by Senior Care Coalition.

You can visit the film’s website here: http://theageoflovemovie.com/

Some praise for the film…

“THE AGE OF LOVE shows us that love is ageless. It’s a great film for older audiences as well as for college students studying relationships and for professionals working with older populations. Too often films ignore the full humanity of older men and women and forget that they can be husbands, wives and lovers. The Age of Love is a wonderful corrective to all those films that deny seniors the full range of who they are and who they can be.” Dr. Pepper Schwartz, AARP LOVE AND RELATIONSHIP AMBASSADOR

“Steven Loring does a fantastic job in taking you deep into a world that – for many of us – may never have even crossed our minds… No matter what your age, THE AGE OF LOVE is one film your will want to experience, as it shares a real story full of emotion and that will assure you, with each passing year, the longing for love and the touch of someone near never goes away.” Kathy Kaiser, WE ARE MOVIE GEEKS

“The film works so well because of the sense that Loring is determined to treat his subjects with the dignity they deserve. Contrary to what society constantly seems to tell us, growing older doesn’t mean that we cease to have the same desires as anyone else, and it’s heartening to see THE AGE OF LOVE take those desires seriously.” Adam Lubitow, THE ROCHESTER CITY NEWSPAPER

West Seattle Art Walk
Feb 9 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Second Thursdays, it’s time for the West Seattle Art Walk; follow that link to see venue/artist highlights – and to get the walking map/venue list!

The West Seattle art walk is a monthly art event that is held the second Thursday of each month 6 pm to 9 pm year-round. The art walk is hosted by the local West Seattle merchants who feature a wide range of art and showcase our vibrant artist community.

West Seattle Artwalk: painter Lindsay Peyton @ Viscon Cellars
Feb 9 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

During West Seattle Art Walk: Viscon Cellars (WSB sponsor) to feature the work of local artist Lindsay Peyton.

Wine and art, the perfect pairing. With shared Texan roots, winemaker Ben Viscon and painter Lindsay Peyton discovered a fast friendship and a kindred creative spark in West Seattle.

Their respective mediums may differ, but both Peyton and Viscon are driven by a passion to make beautiful things.

And now both of their creations will be featured side-by-side. Peyton’s work will be on display in the Viscon Cellars tasting room, located at 5910 California Ave SW in West Seattle, from January through March.

Peyton will be on site during the West Seattle Art Walk from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month – Jan. 12, Feb. 9 and March 9.

The show comes on the heels of Peyton’s recent museum show in Houston, as well as a unique interactive installation in Issaquah over the summer.

“The Viscon Cellars exhibit will feature all new paintings,” Peyton said. “None of the paintings have been shown anywhere before, so that is always exciting for me.”

Peyton said she chose recent work that fits the character and identity of Viscon Cellars.

“Viscon Cellars is such a community gathering spot, a place that brings together friends and neighbors,” she said. “I am selecting work that has that feeling for me, whether it is a painting of a favorite Seattle bar or a friend’s living room where I spent a lot of time. I also did a painting of the Viscon Cellars tasting room, inspired by Ben and his passion for wine.”

Both Peyton and Viscon are from the Lone Star State, which is how the artist and winemaker originally bonded.

“When I first came into Viscon Cellars, I noticed a Texas license plate on the shelf,” Peyton said. “That’s how I learned Ben is from Texas too. We started talking and became instant friends.”

This will be the first time Peyton’s work is shown within the city limits of her current home of Seattle.

Wine and chocolate during Art Walk @ Viscon Cellars
Feb 9 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Chief Sealth students’ Book-It ‘Page to Stage’ performances
Feb 9 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

All families and community members are invited to attend the 16th annual Book-It Page to Stage Residency at Chief Sealth International High School at 7pm on Thursday, February 9th. Freshmen in Mr. Azinger’s 9th grade classes will have spent 4 and a half weeks working with a teaching artist to stage and adapt student written poems.

After a week of on-your-feet, skills-based instruction, students work in groups to stage and adapt poems written by 9th graders from Ms. Griffin’s classes. Our students have truly grown as collaborators and thinkers as the initial reticence to work in groups was quickly replaced by a thoughtful exchange of ideas. The empathy and compassion that students show is delightful, even more so in that they are so focused on successfully presenting their adaptation of the poem. Please come enjoy the result of their hard work and growth on February 9th at 7 pm in the Auditorium at Chief Sealth International High School.

Mothers And Sons
By Terrence McNally; directed by Makaela Pollock

January 19 – February 11, 2017
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

ArtsWest is pleased to announce MOTHERS AND SONS, the Tony Award-nominated play about a mother’s reckoning with the life and legacy of her late son, opening at the ArtWest Playhouse and Gallery on January 19. Performances will run Thursday through Sunday until February 11.

The ArtsWest production of MOTHERS AND SONS stars local legend Suzy Hunt, a veteran actress with credits ranging from Broadway to the 5th Avenue Theatre, ACT and beyond, in the role of the bereaved mother Katharine Gerard. When Katharine pays an unexpected visit to her late son’s former partner, Cal (played by Evan Whitfield), their conversation forces them to confront both the past and the present – and later, when Cal’s husband and young son arrive, Katharine discovers she must also consider the future. Intimate and big-hearted, MOTHERS AND SONS is a mesmerizing story of love, grief and family.

MOTHERS AND SONS is directed by ArtsWest Producing Associate Makaela Pollock, whose work has appeared at the Seattle Shakespeare Company, the 5th Avenue Theatre, Intiman Theatre and many more, including the 2016 ArtsWest production of REALLY REALLY. Rounding out the Creative Team for MOTHERS AND SONS are additional longtime ArtsWest collaborators, including Scenic Designer Christopher Mumaw (DEATH OF A SALESMAN, VIOLET, and LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL) Lighting Designer Ryan Dunn (MY MAÑANA COMES and ANGRY HOUSEWIVES), and Costume Designer Pete Rush (4000 MILES).

Friday, January 27, 9:30-11 pm (-1.11 at 10:41pm)
Friday, February 10, 9-11 pm (-1.44 at 10:32pm)

Beach etiquette:
While on the beach, please remember:
~ Walk carefully; there’s life beneath your feet!
~ Touch gently with one wet finger.
~ Observe animals where they are and please avoid picking them up.
~ Please only move rocks that are small enough to be moved with one hand and return them to the position in which you found them.
~ Please only remove trash from the beach, nothing else. Many of our beaches are protected by law.

Caregiver Classes
Adult Education – Support U: Fostering Caregiver Wellness Series

Do you care for, or simply worry about, an adult with a chronic condition or disability that needs support for living their best life? Whether that person is living with you, nearby or far away, is related to you or not – you are a caregiver. While you focus on the person for whom you care, the Support U adult education series will focus on you – the caregiver.

Support UTM: Fostering Caregiver Wellness, a program of Lutheran Community Services, partners with local congregations to make life better for seniors and their caregivers. Basic care-giving information and tips, presented in accessible classes, will help reduce the number of caregivers who suffer from burnout by trying to “do it all” alone.
