    7. Juneteenth celebration @ High Point Neighborhood House Community Center
      2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

      A new celebration of Juneteenth – “the second Independence Day” – in West Seattle, set for Sunday, June 22, 2014 2-6 pm at The Neighborhood House High Point Center:

      Here’s the announcement (starting with some history), from High Point resident Liz Davis, shared by community builder Shukri Olow:

      Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.’

      This summer will not pass without two opportunities to celebrate freedom, June 19th and July 4th. Do you remember your first Fourth of July? The first time you drove a car? What about your first kiss? Did you have trepidation and enjoyment at the same time? Were there Internal and external fireworks? Celebration and excitement? The exploration of something new yet unknown can bring many different, sometimes conflicting feelings.

      That’s what I think the enslaved Africans in Galveston were feeling summer of 1865 when they received the announcement from the Union Major-General Gordon Granger, “The people of Texas are informed that, in accordance with a proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of personal rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired labor…” This announcement was two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was signed into law. Over the years the celebrations and realization of freedom have grown.

      Are you ready to celebrate this summer? You may have mixed emotions about this celebration. You may not have heard of this day of independence. No matter how you feel about Juneteenth, The Juneteenth Committee invites you to celebrate FREEDOM. Volunteers of The African American community at High Point are working with community partners including Seattle Housing Authority Community Builder to bring entertainment, spoken word, and food from the rich and uniquely West African and American culture known by many different descriptions; Black American, Soul/Soul Food or African American, to name a few. Children and adults will have lots to taste, touch and eat at this inaugural High Point Juneteenth Celebration. Sunday, June 22, 2014 2-6 pm at The Neighborhood House High Point Center, 6400 Sylvan Way SW!

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.”

      From Skylark Café & Club:

      We teamed up with The Tyler Robinson Foundation and This Star Won’t Go Out to make a night of great music for something meaningful. The reality is cancer can be devastating for a family, and it can be incredibly difficult to afford necessary treatment. We will be adopting a family to benefit on the night of Thursday, June 26th, and all proceeds from the event will go directly to them. Signed memorabilia from Imagine Dragons will be available for auction and general donations will be gladly accepted. Tickets are $10.00 at the door, and food and drink will be also available for purchase with 10% of those proceeds also going to the cause.

    2. Meditation Retreat with Sonia Nelson @ SoundYoga
      10:00 am – 4:00 pm

      From Sound Yoga (WSB sponsor):

      Meditation Retreat with Sonia Nelson

      The word “meditation” often brings to mind the image of a person in a seated position, eyes closed and body still. But in the experience of many practitioners, the mind itself is often far from still and the means used to change its restless activity is often unclear or ineffective. In this retreat we will turn to the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali as a guide to gaining a larger perspective on meditation. We will explore its function, structure, the forms it can take and how it can be used effectively as a positive influence in our daily life and ongoing personal evolution.

      The program will include presentation, active practice and group discussion. Practice will include movement, breathing, Yoga Sutra chanting and seated reflection.

      Date: Fri – Sun, June 27 – 29, 2014
      Time: start 10 am Friday; ends 4 pm Sunday

      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.

      HWest Seattle Amateur Radio Club Field Day at South Seattle College (WSB sponsor):

      Members of the West Seattle Amateur* Radio Club are building our “radio city” at South Seattle College this weekend. The annual event is Field Day. Every June hams across the country take their radios outside and run them free of the electric grid. The public is encouraged to visit us anytime between noon on Saturday and 10 am on Sunday, this weekend, June 28th and 29th. Kids are welcome with their parents and are encouraged to try talking on our many radios. Find us at South Seattle College, 6000 16th Ave SW, near Olympic Hall and near the south parking lot on campus. Look for the tents and towers!

      Joining with members of the Auxillary Communications Service (amateurs who work with Seattle Department of Emergency Management) and the Puget Sound Repeater Group, West Seattle Amateur Radio Club members will operate radios and communicate with other hams around the world from West Seattle. We operate using power we generate including solar panels and batteries.

      We build our stations in the 24 hours prior to the event which starts about noon on Saturday. Every June tens of thousands of amateurs in North America practice emergency communication. We compete with thousands of other similar groups.

      We encourage the public to think about how they will communicate, “when all else fails.” After superstorm Sandy, it became clear to many that self reliance, preparation and training should move to the top of your TO DO list. Your local ham radio community exists to help in times of emergency. We also support local events with communication support. Events like the West Seattle Grand Parade and many other Seafair events.

      More than that, we encourage everyone to prepare themselves to meet their own needs. We teach classes for amateur radio FCC licenses. The initial license is often earned after just a weekend of work with our instruction team. These licenses open up a lifetime of learning about communication and technology.

      The public is encouraged to visit our installation. We will have information on emergency preparedness so you can be ready for major storms, pandemic disease or the major earthquake which is overdue for our region. Seattle is one of the most vunerable places you could choose to live. It is also bursting with groups ready to help you survive the next event. Groups like the West Seattle Amateur Radio Club, West Seattle Be Prepared, Seattle Emergency Management. For general information on amateur radio visit American Radio Relay League – ARRL at www.arrl.org.

      Just to move past some common misconceptions: There are more hams now than any time in history. This is not your grandfather’s amateur radio service. As a group, some of us just built our own software defined radios. The only analog part of these radios is the antenna connection. We are deploying a wide area microwave network and in doing so are learning mesh networking and how to offer services across our homebrewed internet. Knowlege like that will make hooking you printer up a snap next time. We routinely use digital modes that allow effective communication using 1/1000th the power needed just a decade ago. While some of us still employ large antenna arrays for worldwide communication, it is now possible to work the world with a very modest station.

      * We are amateur, like Olympic atheletes are amateur. That is we are not paid, but we are very good at what we do.

    3. Meditation Retreat with Sonia Nelson @ SoundYoga
      10:00 am – 4:00 pm

      From Sound Yoga (WSB sponsor):

      Meditation Retreat with Sonia Nelson

      The word “meditation” often brings to mind the image of a person in a seated position, eyes closed and body still. But in the experience of many practitioners, the mind itself is often far from still and the means used to change its restless activity is often unclear or ineffective. In this retreat we will turn to the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali as a guide to gaining a larger perspective on meditation. We will explore its function, structure, the forms it can take and how it can be used effectively as a positive influence in our daily life and ongoing personal evolution.

      The program will include presentation, active practice and group discussion. Practice will include movement, breathing, Yoga Sutra chanting and seated reflection.

      Date: Fri – Sun, June 27 – 29, 2014
      Time: start 10 am Friday; ends 4 pm Sunday

      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.

      Baby Ketten Karaoke starts at 9 pm at Skylark Café & Club. Details on Baby Ketten and songlists 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.”

      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.

      by Stasia Burrington
      Opening July 10th, 6 to 9 pm

      "What I'm after: childish wonder, stark beauty, vast loneliness + absurd simplicity. Exploration, finding comfort in the unknown + active curiosity. This will be sort of a silly show. I'm not a scientist, or an astronaut, this is just a portrait of what I thought being a space explorer was like, when I was 10.

      I have this desire to touch emptiness, embrace the nonsensical, and lose a sense of proportion. Gadgets, physics and magic create a portrait of an innocent motivation to seek comfort and wonder in the unknown.” ––Stasia

    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.

      The West Seattle Branch Library invites preschoolers, parents and caregivers to a special story time that highlights Fire Prevention Month. Seattle firefighters will read books about fire safety and display some of their firefighting equipment Wednesday, July 16th, 2014 10:30–11:00 am.

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

      The Seattle Fire Department is partnering with the Seattle Public Libraries for a reading program aimed at increasing literacy, and raising awareness of home fire safety. This popular event, usually held in October, was held during the summer for the first time last year. Because of its overwhelming popularity, Firefighter Story Times are being held again this summer.

      Firefighters will read the book “No Dragons for Tea” to preschool children from all around the city. Important safety messages include “Firefighters are your friend,” “Crawl low under smoke” and “Get out and stay out.” The event will also include a chance to explore a fire engine and give the children the opportunity to get close to firefighters as they put on and explain their protective gear.

      For more than a decade, Seattle Firefighters have volunteered for literacy events at various Seattle Public Libraries and Seattle Public Schools. The Firefighter Story Times are a push to educate young people in the city and their families about staying safe from fire. Preschool children are especially vulnerable to fire and burn injuries. During the months of June and July, Seattle Firefighters are reading to preschoolers at 7 different library locations throughout the city.

      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.

      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Combining the best of both worlds, Ask an Expert & DIY Skill Share will now be joining the West Seattle Fixers Collective on the 3rd Thursday of every month!

      Thursday, April 18th, 6:00-9:00 pm at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.

      In the broadest sense, a Fixers’ Collective is a group of folks who love to fix and mend things, which could be any old thing from broken blenders to ripped sweaters to antique dentist drills. Take it apart, put it back together, figure out how it works, refuse to throw it away, and get to know others who do the same! What the collective works on depends entirely on who shows up but you can be rest assured that there will be plenty of creativity involved. Adding to this fun, The Tool Library also brings together some experienced DIY coaches who are willing to answer any questions that you may have on your current projects, future plans, or anything else you liked to discuss. Our coaches have expertise in a variety of areas, including solar power, water harvesting, green architecture & building, permaculture, and urban gardening.

      These open and informal community meetups offer an opportunity to bounce project ideas off fellow DIYers and maybe receive some advice in the process, if you like. It’s also a great time to show off what you’ve been working on.From small little blenders to entire home renovations, these meetups offer you a chance to explore all of sorts of DIY fixes!

      Ask an Expert brings together our community and hosts some experienced DIY (do-it-yourself) coaches who are willing to answer any questions that you may have on your current projects, future plans, or anything else you like to discuss.

      Each month the Tool Library brings together our community’s experts to provide advice on your home and garden ideas. From light-hearted transformations (like early blooming flowers) to heavy-hitting ones like rainwater catchment, building an addition, or becoming an urban farmer and everything in-between, our experts will give you the power to understand and tackle your challenge.

      Bring your inspiration, inquiring minds, and projects. They’ll bring the experts and the pizza!

      p.s. Tell your friends! You do not have to be a West Seattle resident to participate in this event or borrow tools from the West Seattle Tool Library!

    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.
