      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      *The Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist was established in West Seattle in 1892, for a “broad-minded and liberal churchmanship, which should not only develop the spiritual side of life, but also encourage the social welfare in the most thoughtful and progressive minds of this community.” Today, the people of St. John’s continue to strive to live into this statement of purpose through such programs as our Just Garden Project to provide fresh produce for area food banks, feeding the hungry at Nicklesville and with the Community Meals program and building for the educational needs of students in the Mulundi Village in Kenya. Sunday worship is at 8:00 and 10:15 am, with Christian Formation classes at 10:00 am. We invite you and all whom you love, to “Come as you are!

      *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.

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

    7. If These Walls Could Talk: tour of the ‘Daddy’ Standley home
      3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      The Southwest Seattle Historical Society presents:
      “If These Walls Could Talk” tour on Sunday, June 28, featuring the home of “Daddy” Standley, founder of Ye Olde Curiosity Shop.

      A century ago, the home at 1750 Palm Ave. S.W. probably was the most gawked-at, talked-about residence in West Seattle.

      “Everybody wanted to see it,” says 90-year-old Joe James, whose grandfather “Ye Olde Curiosity Shop” founder Joseph Edward ‘Daddy’ Standley built the house in 1906. Sightseeing buses used to stop there on their tours and let people out to look at the yard. He had everything in there you could think of, from whale jawbones to whale vertebrae to totem poles to shell mounds.

      On Sunday, June 28, 2015, the home will be the site of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society’s third annual “If These Walls Could Talk” home tour, to run from 3 to 5 pm. Tickets, available at the door, are $10 for members, $15 for non-members.

      Attendees will have an opportunity to tour the residence (now owned by Katy and Erik Walum), view historical photographs of the house and property and learn about the remarkable life of Standley.

      In addition, they will see a selection of curios and family keepsakes on loan from the Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, including a variety of Indian baskets, a 3-foot totem that greeted shop visitors in the early 1900s, and an antique cradle that has rocked five generations of Standley children.

      They also will be able to meet Joe James, his son Andy and other members of the Standley clan, who for 116 years have welcomed curiosity-seekers at their iconic Seattle waterfront store.

      Those who would like an invitation-only VIP experience earlier in the day, including presentations by Joe James and King County Archives’ Greg Lange, plus hors d’oeuvres and wine, please call 206-938-5293 or e-mail clay.eals@loghousemuseum.info.

      For more information, along with a video invitation by Joe James, please visit http://www.loghousemuseum.info.

    5. High Point Market Garden Farm Stand open Wednesdays
      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      Baby Ketten Karaoke starts at 9 pm at Skylark Café & Club. Details on Baby Ketten and songlists here. Free, ages 21+.

      “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.”

    4. High Point Market Garden Farm Stand open Wednesdays
      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      Katrina del Mar – Feral Women

      Artist Talk and Reception with the artist,
      July 9th, 6 to 9pm

      (Exhibit runs June 11th – July 25th, 2015)

      With Feral Women Katrina del Mar continues to explore the theme of wild women who break with convention, an obsession she’s had since childhood. The wildness in women, sometimes overt, sometimes subtle is, for del Mar, a manifestation of innate inestimable power and therefore a source of the divine. Large scale, hi octane, full color, super-saturated photographs could be scenes from forgotten, fantastic films. The high hard femme, the bad girl, the rocker, the biker, the surfer-selkie, are icons of a new feminist pantheon.

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

    7. Kitty Harbor weekend adoption event
      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

    7. Pluto-flyby ‘Phone Home’ event @ High Point Library
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      From Alice Enevoldsen, West Seattle-residing NASA Solar System Ambassador and astronomy writer:

      What: Plutopalooza Phone Home!
      When: Tuesday, July 14, 2015, 5–7 pm
      Where: High Point Branch Library, 3411 SW Raymond
      Who: Everyone welcome, as usual. (Themed craft activity for children approximately ages 3-14, short talk about New Horizons aimed at upper elementary through adult, and NASA TV phone home broadcast for everyone.) Hosted by “West Seattle’s Own” NASA Solar System Ambassador Alice Enevoldsen.

      At 4:49 am on July 14th, New Horizons spacecraft will make history as it flies past Pluto, after a journey of more than nine years and 3 billion miles. For much of the day the New Horizons spacecraft will be out of communication with mission control as it gathers data on Pluto and its moons.

      At 6:02 pm, on that same day, the spacecraft is scheduled to “phone home” confirming that it completed the rendezvous. This is the nailbiting moment of suspense that we will watch together during the event at the High Point Branch.

      While we are waiting for the signal, there will be Pluto-themed activities for kids ages 3 and up, Alice will give a short presentation on the New Horizons mission appropriate for ages 9 through adult, and will be available to interpret the broadcast events as well as answer questions.

      P.S. If you want to build a model of the New Horizons craft and bring it with you to the event, I would love to see it. You can also post your West Seattle PlutoTime photos to social media, and tag me: @AlicesAstroInfo.

      Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.

      * Alice also writes periodic Skies Over West Seattle updates for WSB, with advance alerts and info about some of what you’ll see in the sky, including eclipses, planetary conjunctions, meteor showers, and more – they’re archived here.

    8. High Point Market Garden Farm Stand open Wednesdays
      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

    9. High Point Market Garden Farm Stand open Wednesdays
      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      6:30-6:45: Welcome to the WSTC, Introductions, Community News & Updates.

      6:45-8:00: Port of Seattle, Bari Bookout, Director of Seaport Commercial Strategy and Paul Meyer, Manager, Seaport Environmental and Planning: Discuss future plans for T5 and transportation issues as they relate to West Seattle.

      * Which stakeholder groups have you involved in the conversation about improving the WS Bridge Transportation Corridor — between the WS hill and I-5?

      * To help alleviate pressure off the low bridge, and reduce freight-blocking congestion on the high bridge, would the Port be willing to move some budget money toward commuter infrastructure improvements?

      * Have you explored Seattle impact fees, and other supplementary funding options with the city, county, state and federal governments to help pay for transportation infrastructure improvements?

      * Train horns are intended to be noisy, typically between 85 dBA and 115 dBA at 100 ft compared to a jet airplane at 600 ft altitude causing 120 dBA. Will the port install quiet zones at public street train crossings to mitigate train horn noise?

      * Regarding T5 expansion traffic impacts: Please walk us through your justification that a $230M expansion project, that appears to significantly increase multi-modal congestion in an already heavily congested area, didn’t require an EIS? In other words, how do you know that this will work for you as well as residents and other businesses in WS without due diligence?

      8:00-8:30: New & Old Business! Discussion and updates.

      8:30: Adjourn.

      Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor) presents live New Orleans jazz featuring Dave Holo Trio.

      Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! 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!”

      Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.

    11. Duwamish Revealed: Free Movie Night @ The Estuary/T-108 Park
      8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      Duwamish Revealed, a summer long series of outdoor art installations, performances, community activities presents two nights of documentary movies about the Duwamish Tribe on Jesse Card’s portable outdoor cinema. John Boylan, host of the discussion series “Conversations,” will begin the evening with a monologue based on contemporary and historical stories from along the riverbanks.

      John Boylan | Duwamish Movie Night
      at The Estuary/T-108 Park, 4651 Diagonal Avenue S., Seattle

      Friday July 24, 8 pm: Princess Angeline, dir. Sandra Osawa, 2008, 53 minutes

      Saturday July 25, 8 pm: Chief Seattle, dir. BJ Bullert, 2000, 80 minutes

      Both nights will feature special appearances by the filmmakers.

      On July 24th Princess Angeline will be shown. Princess Angeline, daughter of Chief Seattle, lived alone at the bottom of Pike Street and refused to leave her homeland despite the city’s ban on Native people living within the city limits. The film explores the story of the Duwamish and their still-unrecognized tribal status through the life of Princess Angeline.

      On July 25th Chief Seattle will be shown. Chief Seattle brings to life the legendary Puget Sound leader who welcomed the Americans to settle on the land that now bears his name. It recounts the known facts of Seattle’s life and times, and casts a fresh light on the controversy over the famous speech attributed to him. Originally broadcast on KCTS Television, the film features interviews with Duwamish Tribe leader Cecile Hansen, historians Alexandra Harmon and David Buerge, and author Jonathan Raban.

    11. Westcrest Park expansion celebration & art dedication
      11:00 am – 1:00 pm

      When Seattle Parks officially opened the five-years-in-the-making Westcrest Park expansion almost two weeks ago, they mentioned a July 25th celebration. That’s coming up Saturday, and today Parks shared more details: Music, balsa-wood planemaking, a bouncy house, and an obstacle course from Camp Long will all be part of the 11:30 am-1:30 pm party Saturday July 25. Plus the dedication of Flyers, the park expansion’s wind-spun public art by David Boyer. If you’re new – this all happened because the city decided to bury what had been an open-air reservoir in this area of Westcrest Park, and that made room for more park space on top, including a new permanent play area. Celebrate new artwork at Westcrest Park Dedication Saturday, July 25, 2015, 11 am—1 pm at Westcrest Park.
