WHEN BLOCH, a popular London novelist, starts writing a fictionalized story featuring his unremarkablr friend Oscar, the invented details from the story start to come true. Gradually, Oscar embarks on a surreal odyssey into fame, while Bloch descends into the dark places of his soul. Oscar falls in love with
Najette, a bewitching painter, but their relationship hangs in the balance as his myth balloons out of all proportion. At the centre of the hype and spin stands the demon-like publicist Ryan Rees, whose power enables him to manufacture the truth, and the story builds to an unforgettable, startling climax…

Kids’ yoga fundraiser for Children’s Hospital @ Multiple locations
May 20 all-day

The fundraiser is called “Kids Supporting Kids: Celebrating Life, Health, Childhood, and Moving For Those Who Can’t”.

It is a KIDS YOGA EVENT TO SUPPORT SEATTLE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL.

This all-kids event is an opportunity for kids to practice generosity and empathy by supporting their peers as well as develop an appreciation for their own health and ability to move pain-free.

Each class includes 45-60 minutes of yoga + 30-45 minutes of yoga art. Our art will be sent along with our donation as a message of encouragement and support to the patients.

The classes will vary by age, but each includes yoga, mindfulness, and breathing, centered around our theme.

I am requesting a minimum donation of $20 for attendees to reserve their spot. This also includes an event wristband and group picture. Attendees “pay” through our fundraising page, which means all proceeds go directly to Children’s!

The dates + locations are as follows:

Miss Sheryl’s Ballet
Located in White Center
9650 16th Ave SW

5-8 YO May 6th 3-4:15 PM

9-12 YO May 20th 3-4:45 PM

13-15 YO May 27th 3-4:45 PM

16-18 YO June 3rd 3-4:45 PM

People can sign up at http://happyherokidsyoga.com/pages/kids-supporting-kids. If they have any questions they can contact me at kjscofield@outlook.com

I am also looking for donors to support the event, so if people are unable to attend the event, there are a few other ways they can contribute.

People can contribute directly to our fundraising page https://giveto.seattlechildrens.org/kidssupportingkids.

SCH is currently in need of 12 infant mobiles, each costs approximately $100. So, I am looking for 8 other donors (I already have 2, in addition to myself) to help me purchase the mobiles. Children’s has their own page where you can purchase the mobiles, and they are sent directly to the hospital. Donors will have their names/logos included on a poster at the events, so people can see their contribution.

A third option is to contribute to Children’s Amazon Wishlist, where people can purchase different toys, games, art supplies, etc. and they will be sent directly to Children’s.

Lastly, people can also help support families by purchasing food through Children’s special food bank.

If they are interested in donating mobiles, the Amazon Wishlist, or the food bank, they can email me at kjscofield@outlook.com for more details.

The goal is to raise $3500 to help provide hope and encouragement for the patients and their families.

Sunday Adult Forums in the Season of Easter
All Sunday forums are held from 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall.

Sunday, April 8, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
Nature of Person, with The Rev. Kate Wesch

Have you ever wondered about the human soul? What is it and why does it matter? Are you curious as to the Christian understanding of what comprises a person? This conversation explores the definition of a person with particular focus upon how we care for and keep our souls.

The Rev. Kate Wesch is the Rector of St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church.

Sunday, April 15, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
C.S. Lewis, with Jon Roberts

C.S. Lewis is perhaps the twentieth century’s greatest Christian Apologist and his enduring stories are infused with Christian themes and insights. In this forum we will cover a brief biographical sketch of C.S. Lewis, review how he bases his works on core biblical themes, and discuss how his work and thoughts are impacting our current understanding of Christianity.

Jonathan Roberts is a member of Epiphany Parish in Seattle and grew up attending the University Presbyterian Church. He has read C.S. Lewis’s books throughout his life and for the last six years has been sharing his enthusiasm for Lewis with a book group that meets weekly at Epiphany Parish. He is married to Elizabeth Roberts and they have three teenage children. Jonathan has worked in the technology industry for thirty years, both at Microsoft and Ignition Partners, a Venture Capital firm he co-founded eighteen years ago.

Sunday, April 22, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Kingdom of God , with The Rev. Kate Wesch

The Kingdom of God is where what God wants to happen always happens the way God wants it to happen. God’s Kingdom is spatial and timeless and it is right here, right now. Jesus speaks of this kingdom more than anything else in scripture. In fact, it is mentioned nearly 300 times in Holy Scripture. So, what exactly is this Kingdom and what does is mean for us today?

Sunday, April 29, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
William Wilberforce: Reformation in Manners, with Jon Roberts

William Wilberforce achieved two great objectives in his life. The first, and best known, was his work leading to the abolition of slavery within the United Kingdom, but the second was his ability to effect a dramatic change in British human behavior. Wilberforce leveraged a speech given by George III at his coronation challenging the British people to live more principled and moral lives. Wilberforce cajoled and shamed, but also inspired the British to create a worldview that radically changed attitudes toward child labor, prostitution, and animal cruelty, among other causes. Wilberforce’s efforts shifted the consciousness of the British people and set the stage for what we now refer to as Victorian morals. In this forum, we will explore what motivated Wilberforce and how his Reformation in Manners movement worked and how we can apply this approach to addressing the dysfunction in our current culture.

Sunday, May 6, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
Introduction to Labyrinths: Sacred Geometry

Ann Lockhart What is this pattern on the ground? A bit of history, a bit of language to help understand how and where labyrinths got started, and why they are still meaningful in today’s world. We’ll play with finger labyrinths, dot-to-dot and seed patterns.

Ann Lockhart is a member of Epiphany Parish in Seattle. Ann first walked the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco in the late ‘90s. A love of labyrinths has been part of her spiritual life ever since. In the past year, Ann has been trained as a labyrinth facilitator by Veriditas, the organization founded at Grace Cathedral, and has participated in the Global Labyrinth Society Annual Gathering at IslandWood on Bainbridge Island. She has led Quiet Day labyrinth retreats and encourages use of Epiphany’s labyrinth at every opportunity.

Sunday, May 13, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
Following the Path: Labyrinth Pilgrimage, with Ann Lockhart

Learn more about how labyrinths can enrich our spiritual lives and can become part of our daily practice. We will celebrate spring and Mother’s Day by walking a labyrinth: journeying in, centering down, and letting go.

Sunday, May 20, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Saint John’s Bible: Igniting the Spiritual Imagination, with Brad Neary, Director, The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Program

Training is free. Donations are gratefully accepted.

Everyone wants to live in a hate-free neighborhood. Do what you can to make it happen!

Southwest Stories: ‘Arthur Loveless, Renowned Seattle Architect’ @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
May 20 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

From the Southwest Seattle Historical Society:

“Arthur Loveless, Renowned Seattle Architect”

with speaker, Susan Shorett & photographer Eric Dennon
Sunday, May 20th at 2:00 pm
Reception & Arthur Loveless House Tour to Follow
West Seattle Branch
Seattle Public Library
2306 42nd Ave SW

Southwest Seattle Historical Society — in partnership with Seattle Public Library — presents our 2018 season of “Southwest Stories,” a speakers series featuring historical stories from the Duwamish Peninsula.

Arthur Loveless, Renowned Seattle Architect
Our guest speaker, Susan Shorett’s great-grandmother was Georgia Loveless Shorett. Georgia’s brother was Arthur Loveless who was a prominent architect who designed homes in every significant neighborhood in Seattle.

His iconic Tudor Revivalist style helped shape many of Seattle’s earliest neighborhoods. Susan and her cousin documented the most thorough list to date of Loveless’s body of work which totals over 100 residential and commercial properties. In 2017, they formulated the idea to document as many of his designs in an attempt to help preserve his architectural legacy in a book of photography of his work as the properties look today.

Susan Shorett — Since 1901, five generations of Susan’s family have called West Seattle home. Her great-great grandparents built a home on Alki point in 1902. Susan grew up in North Admiral in the house that her grandparents built in 1936 and her mother still lives at Alki beach today. Her grandparents both attended West Seattle High School, as did her father and sister. In 2005, Susan undertook a nineteen month long historic renovation of Seaview Hall, a log home built 1904 as a hotel located near Beach Drive.

Curt & Paul Green have provided a little history of their house’s earliest owners for us to consider:

The Greens’ house used to be owned by the Brown family, and was designed by Arthur Loveless in late 1915. This was one of the earlier commissions that Loveless received after going into business for himself, with his offices in the Coleman Building. (The Coleman family of West Seattle was another long-term client of Loveless.)

Dana Brown, who died on October 2, 1929, had long been heavily involved in early real estate development in West Seattle as the Secretary/Treasurer of the West Seattle Land and Improvement Company. During the late 1800 and early 1900, the West Seattle Land & Improvement Company reported had owned, sub-divided, platted and re-sold most of the Admiral District, and most of the waterfront in the northern part of West Seattle.

The West Seattle Land & Improvement Company reportedly operated the ferry service for many years, using a number of different boats and docks, one of which was located at the foot of Ferry Ave, presumably in part to encourage people to consider buying property in West Seattle. The first ferry was “The City of Seattle” and a later boat was named the “West Seattle.”

Please consider coming to this very entertaining talk and the reception & tour following!

Note: We will provide the address of the Green’s house following the talk.

Each class includes 45-60 minutes of yoga + 30-45 minutes of yoga art. Our art will be sent along with our donation as a message of encouragement and support to the patients.

The classes will vary by age, but each includes yoga, mindfulness, and breathing, centered around our theme.

I am requesting a minimum donation of $20 for attendees to reserve their spot. This also includes an event wristband and group picture. Attendees “pay” through our fundraising page, which means all proceeds go directly to Children’s!

SCH is currently in need of 12 infant mobiles, each costs approximately $100. So, I am looking for 8 other donors (I already have 2, in addition to myself) to help me purchase the mobiles. Children’s has their own page where you can purchase the mobiles, and they are sent directly to the hospital. Donors will have their names/logos included on a poster at the events, so people can see their contribution.

A third option is to contribute to Children’s Amazon Wishlist, where people can purchase different toys, games, art supplies, etc. and they will be sent directly to Children’s.

Lastly, people can also help support families by purchasing food through Children’s special food bank.

If they are interested in donating mobiles, the Amazon Wishlist, or the food bank, they can email me at kjscofield@outlook.com for more details.

The goal is to raise $3500 to help provide hope and encouragement for the patients and their families.

A third option is to contribute to Children’s Amazon Wishlist, where people can purchase different toys, games, art supplies, etc. and they will be sent directly to Children’s.

Lastly, people can also help support families by purchasing food through Children’s special food bank.

If they are interested in donating mobiles, the Amazon Wishlist, or the food bank, they can email me at kjscofield@outlook.com for more details.

The goal is to raise $3500 to help provide hope and encouragement for the patients and their families.

Memorial Day poppy distribution at WS Thriftway
May 27 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

American Legion Post 160 of West Seattle will be distributing Poppies at the Thriftway in Morgan Junction both Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

On September 27, 1920, the poppy became the official flower of The American Legion family to memorialize the soldiers who fought and died during the war. In 1924, the distribution of poppies became a national program of The American Legion.

Each year, members of The American Legion family, led by the American Legion Auxiliary, distribute poppies with a request that the person receiving the flower make a donation to support the future of veterans, active-duty military personnel and their families with medical and financial needs.

So far this year Post 160 of West Seattle has helped several veterans from the donations received from our poppy distribution in the community.

Sunday Adult Forums in the Season of Easter
All Sunday forums are held from 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall.

Sunday, April 8, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
Nature of Person, with The Rev. Kate Wesch

Have you ever wondered about the human soul? What is it and why does it matter? Are you curious as to the Christian understanding of what comprises a person? This conversation explores the definition of a person with particular focus upon how we care for and keep our souls.

The Rev. Kate Wesch is the Rector of St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church.

Sunday, April 15, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
C.S. Lewis, with Jon Roberts

C.S. Lewis is perhaps the twentieth century’s greatest Christian Apologist and his enduring stories are infused with Christian themes and insights. In this forum we will cover a brief biographical sketch of C.S. Lewis, review how he bases his works on core biblical themes, and discuss how his work and thoughts are impacting our current understanding of Christianity.

Jonathan Roberts is a member of Epiphany Parish in Seattle and grew up attending the University Presbyterian Church. He has read C.S. Lewis’s books throughout his life and for the last six years has been sharing his enthusiasm for Lewis with a book group that meets weekly at Epiphany Parish. He is married to Elizabeth Roberts and they have three teenage children. Jonathan has worked in the technology industry for thirty years, both at Microsoft and Ignition Partners, a Venture Capital firm he co-founded eighteen years ago.

Sunday, April 22, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Kingdom of God , with The Rev. Kate Wesch

The Kingdom of God is where what God wants to happen always happens the way God wants it to happen. God’s Kingdom is spatial and timeless and it is right here, right now. Jesus speaks of this kingdom more than anything else in scripture. In fact, it is mentioned nearly 300 times in Holy Scripture. So, what exactly is this Kingdom and what does is mean for us today?

Sunday, April 29, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
William Wilberforce: Reformation in Manners, with Jon Roberts

William Wilberforce achieved two great objectives in his life. The first, and best known, was his work leading to the abolition of slavery within the United Kingdom, but the second was his ability to effect a dramatic change in British human behavior. Wilberforce leveraged a speech given by George III at his coronation challenging the British people to live more principled and moral lives. Wilberforce cajoled and shamed, but also inspired the British to create a worldview that radically changed attitudes toward child labor, prostitution, and animal cruelty, among other causes. Wilberforce’s efforts shifted the consciousness of the British people and set the stage for what we now refer to as Victorian morals. In this forum, we will explore what motivated Wilberforce and how his Reformation in Manners movement worked and how we can apply this approach to addressing the dysfunction in our current culture.

Sunday, May 6, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
Introduction to Labyrinths: Sacred Geometry

Ann Lockhart What is this pattern on the ground? A bit of history, a bit of language to help understand how and where labyrinths got started, and why they are still meaningful in today’s world. We’ll play with finger labyrinths, dot-to-dot and seed patterns.

Ann Lockhart is a member of Epiphany Parish in Seattle. Ann first walked the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco in the late ‘90s. A love of labyrinths has been part of her spiritual life ever since. In the past year, Ann has been trained as a labyrinth facilitator by Veriditas, the organization founded at Grace Cathedral, and has participated in the Global Labyrinth Society Annual Gathering at IslandWood on Bainbridge Island. She has led Quiet Day labyrinth retreats and encourages use of Epiphany’s labyrinth at every opportunity.

Sunday, May 13, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
Following the Path: Labyrinth Pilgrimage, with Ann Lockhart

Learn more about how labyrinths can enrich our spiritual lives and can become part of our daily practice. We will celebrate spring and Mother’s Day by walking a labyrinth: journeying in, centering down, and letting go.

Sunday, May 20, 9:15-10:00 am in the Parish Hall
The Saint John’s Bible: Igniting the Spiritual Imagination, with Brad Neary, Director, The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Program

Neary’s presentation will focus on the story of the original handwritten and illuminated folios of The Saint John’s Bible — 16 years in the making — as well as on the production of the stunning Heritage Edition. Limited to 299 sets, the seven volumes of the Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible are true to the scale, beauty and artistic intent of the original manuscript. Following his presentation, Neary will host an open house session for anyone interested in taking a closer look at the Gospels and Acts volume of the Heritage Edition.

Brad Neary serves as director of The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Program for the western third of the country.

This forum intends to be an overview of these practices with ideas for incorporating them into our busy lives and a conversation about how these holy habits transform our souls over time.

Litter League volunteer community cleanups @ Various
May 27 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

I hope you will join us this summer in keeping our local West Seattle Morgan Junction clean. To make it easy for everyone to help out, we have scheduled in advance for five clean up mornings to pick up litter!

The dates are all on Sunday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00:

May 27
July 8
August 5
Sept 2
Oct 7

Yes, May 27 and Sept. 2 fall during holiday weekends, but we know that many people will be in town and able to come!

We will meet by the ATM near the Shell station and I will have vests, litter picker-uppers, buckets and bags for everyone. Please bring and wear your gardening gloves!

I will do a brief safety talk at 9:30 – mainly showing the kids what a needle looks like and to alert me if they find one, don’t pick it up.

This is a wonderful opportunity for family volunteering, meaningful for small kids and something they can really help with! So bring your whole family. Or come alone or with a friend. Dogs are welcome if well-behaved and on-leash and you can do the outer parts of MJ to get you and your pup some exercise. The families with young kids focus on the main intersection areas.

This summer, I am arranging with Seattle Light to let me keep the equipment all summer, so it is also available if you want to tackle an area in your immediate neighborhood around MJ (or if anyone wants to clean up along 35th from the Library to Trenton, that area really needs some help). Just let me know!

You can just drop in or you can RSVP, which is helpful to me in terms of how many people to expect and to ensure I have enough support equipment.

Rainy days don’t cancel unless it’s a downpour.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
May 29 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
May 30 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Save the Genesee-Schmitz Neighborhood Council @ Uptown Espresso
May 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

We’ll be blunt–we don’t want GSNC to go away, but that is what will happen if we don’t find new blood. We think there are still plenty of good reasons to have a council, but after a good long run of being involved for 7+ years, all five of the current Executive Committee volunteers are ready to move on after a short transition period.

We will be hosting an informal coffee chat on Wednesday, May 30, to answer questions and share information with those curious about what it would take to continue the council. We would hate to see our banner, marketing materials, online accounts (like the one used to send this message), and website go to waste, so please consider joining us to meet a few like-minded folks–and bring a friend or neighbor!

When: 7 pm on Wednesday, May 30

Where: Uptown Espresso in the Alaska Junction, 4301 SW Edmunds (look for our sign)

**Interested but can’t make it? Please reply to gsncouncil@gmail.com with your contact information, and we will be in touch.**

Please consider: It might seem like GSNC’s work is done, now that the Genesee Hill School has been built and is operating successfully. However, we have at least a few issues affecting our neighborhood in the very near future–and you might know of others:

Support the Urban Homestead Foundation in their (daunting) quest to raise an additional $250K by December 2018 to purchase the old substation property at 50th & Dakota (across from the school) for a community space. If UHF cannot raise the money, the parcels will be sold for development.

Have group input to Seattle Parks during the public process scheduled for THIS FALL on development plans for the vacant land at 48th & Charlestown. GSNC was instrumental in saving this land for public use.

Have a group voice on the Sound Transit alternatives for bringing light rail to the Alaska Junction.

???

GSNC is also a wonderful group for hosting “get to know your neighbor” events (another Ice Cream Social, anyone?) to build community.

Thanks for considering this opportunity to get to know some of your neighbors and make a difference in our community!

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 2 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Loop the Lupe 2018 @ Walt Hundley Playfield
Jun 2 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

The biggest, muddiest, family-friendliest event this summer is happening in just a few weeks: Loop the ‘Lupe, Seattle’s ONLY urban obstacle course race! Loop the ‘Lupe, now in its second year, will take place June 2, 2018, at Walt Hundley Playfield in West Seattle. More than 300 people participated in last year’s inaugural race—from age 5 to 90, from Kirkland to Tacoma. Building on the success of last year’s event, Loop the ‘Lupe organizers are adding a food & drink area, live music, and a beer garden to accommodate the more than 500 participants expected.

“Everyone wanted to ‘get in the Loop’ last year, and I think that’s because we really had something to offer people of all ages, and something runners or walkers of all skill levels could enjoy,” says Race Director Brian Callanan. Loop the ‘Lupe features a 1K “loop” around Walt Hundley Playfield, where participants race under, over, and through seven obstacles (two new ones added in 2018), including a mud pit, walls, “Squirtgun Alley,” and more. Loop the ‘Lupe has four options to get the whole family involved in a fun day at the park:

Obstacle Course: For ninja warriors who think their skills are up to the task, the Obstacle Course 5K (five loops) begins at 11 a.m.

5K Family Fun Run/Walk: Not ready for the obstacles? No problem! You can pass them by and make this into a family fun run/walk, starting at 11:45 a.m.

Senior Saunter: The “Saunter” is for walkers age 65+ looking for a flat, no-obstacles walk. The turf soccer field at the park is the “race” course. People used their rolling walkers at this event in 2017, so come see how many laps you can complete in 20 minutes! Starts at 12:15 p.m.

Youth Dash: Do you have a child under 8 years old? They can join in the fun, too, by taking one loop around the course (parental help encouraged). The fun begins at 1 p.m.!

Proceeds from Loop the ‘Lupe support the Walmesley Center at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish. The Center has been one of the area’s most utilized facilities for sports and social outreach work since opening in 2012:

More than 24,000 kids/family members participating in athletic programs
More than 10,000 free community meals given to those in need
Annual blood drives/flu shot clinics
Vacation Bible Camps, weddings, cultural events, and more!

Loop the ‘Lupe is teaming up with professional race organizer Fizz Events (SeaFair Triathlon, Fiesta 5K Olé!, & more) to take this event to the next level. “It’s great to be part of a growing event like this that involves so much community support,” says Fizz Events owner Jared Loranger. “So, bring the family and GET IN THE LOOP!”

You are invited! Come All Around the World with us!

Thanks to the community support of Sanislo Elementary’s auction last year, we kicked our $5,000 goal to the curb and raised $15,000!

This windfall provided a mindfulness program, increased teacher stipends, created a ‘book fair bucks’ program and is affording scholarships to kids in need so they can participate in after-school enrichment! YOU, yes YOU, helped make this happen!

Let’s do it again!

Our annual auction is just around the corner and we hope you can join us once again in supporting educational equity.

Details:

– All Around the World Auction

– Saturday, June 2nd from 6 pm-10 pm

– Alki Masonic Center, 4736 40th Ave SW, Seattle, WA 98116

You can reserve your tickets online, or, if you can’t make it but would like to donate, you can do that through the link below as well.

Donations to our auction make a significant impact in the education of our kids. With over 70% of our families living in poverty, our school community simply cannot raise these essential funds alone. We hope to see you there!

Jun 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Saturday, June 2
Sustainable West Seattle, and the West Seattle Meaningful Movies, presents

Death by Design
The Dirty Secret of Our Digital Addiction

Many of us use our digital devices to promote the greater good. But there is a downside to the digital revolution. This movie brings to light the environmental, economic, and social-justice failures of our favorite products.

By 2020, four billion people will own personal computers, five billion will own mobile phones, and all industries will be computerized. Are we being duped by an industry that has a death-by-design plan? Are we reaching the point where we have to decide between consumerism and sustainability?

73 minutes
Directed by Sue Williams, 2016
Trailer: deathbydesignfilm.com/abou/

6:30 – doors open for refreshments
7:00 – movie, followed by optional facilitated discussion

At High Point Neighborhood House

Kids’ yoga fundraiser for Children’s Hospital @ Multiple locations
Jun 3 all-day

The fundraiser is called “Kids Supporting Kids: Celebrating Life, Health, Childhood, and Moving For Those Who Can’t”.

It is a KIDS YOGA EVENT TO SUPPORT SEATTLE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL.

This all-kids event is an opportunity for kids to practice generosity and empathy by supporting their peers as well as develop an appreciation for their own health and ability to move pain-free.

Each class includes 45-60 minutes of yoga + 30-45 minutes of yoga art. Our art will be sent along with our donation as a message of encouragement and support to the patients.

The classes will vary by age, but each includes yoga, mindfulness, and breathing, centered around our theme.

I am requesting a minimum donation of $20 for attendees to reserve their spot. This also includes an event wristband and group picture. Attendees “pay” through our fundraising page, which means all proceeds go directly to Children’s!

The dates + locations are as follows:

Miss Sheryl’s Ballet
Located in White Center
9650 16th Ave SW

5-8 YO May 6th 3-4:15 PM

9-12 YO May 20th 3-4:45 PM

13-15 YO May 27th 3-4:45 PM

16-18 YO June 3rd 3-4:45 PM

Limber Yoga

Located in West Seattle
7901 35th Ave SW, 2nd Floor

5-8 YO May 5, 4-5:15 PM

9-12 YO May 12, 4-5:45 PM

13-15 YO May 19, 5:15-7 PM

15-18 YO May 26, 4-5:45 PM

People can sign up at http://happyherokidsyoga.com/pages/kids-supporting-kids. If they have any questions they can contact me at kjscofield@outlook.com

I am also looking for donors to support the event, so if people are unable to attend the event, there are a few other ways they can contribute.

People can contribute directly to our fundraising page https://giveto.seattlechildrens.org/kidssupportingkids.

SCH is currently in need of 12 infant mobiles, each costs approximately $100. So, I am looking for 8 other donors (I already have 2, in addition to myself) to help me purchase the mobiles. Children’s has their own page where you can purchase the mobiles, and they are sent directly to the hospital. Donors will have their names/logos included on a poster at the events, so people can see their contribution.

A third option is to contribute to Children’s Amazon Wishlist, where people can purchase different toys, games, art supplies, etc. and they will be sent directly to Children’s.

Lastly, people can also help support families by purchasing food through Children’s special food bank.

If they are interested in donating mobiles, the Amazon Wishlist, or the food bank, they can email me at kjscofield@outlook.com for more details.

The goal is to raise $3500 to help provide hope and encouragement for the patients and their families.

Check the Chip @ Lien Animal Clinic
Jun 3 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The care team at Lien Animal Clinic is reminding all pet owners in West Seattle that on Sunday, June 3rd they will be hosting a Check the Chip Event, where pet owners are encouraged to check and update the contact information registered with their pet’s microchip or have one inserted into a pet that is not yet protected. Lien Animal Clinic is hosting this event in an effort to ensure more happy endings for lost or stolen pets. This year, with support from HomeAgain, there’s a video reinforcing the importance of registering pet microchips and keeping that information up to date.

“We love stories of pets and their families being reunited after they have been missing for sometimes just a short while or in some cases days,” said Daphney, a team member at Lien. These stories would not have a happy ending, if these pets were never microchipped or if the microchip contained inaccurate or out-of-date information.

Microchips greatly increase the chances that you’ll get your pets back if they become lost or stolen, but a microchip only works if its registration information is accurate.

Our team will be available on Sunday, June 3rd from 2-4 pm:

· Check your pets chip and enrollment status tell the owner what information is contained on the microchip; and

· Microchip pets who are without

· Provide tours of the practice

We will have pizza, beverages and raffle prizes! It’ll be a woofin’ good time, you won’t want to hiss it!

To learn more about microchips and our Check the Chip Event, call us at 206-932-1133 or visit the Home Again website at www.homeagain.com/microchipping.html

Encores: The Seattle Metropolitan Singers Spring Concert

The director of the Seattle Metropolitan Singers, John Gulhaugen, is retiring after 12 years of leading this group of amateur women singers. John has spent much of his life tied to music – from earning a BA in Music from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, to singing with the Seattle Opera Chorus, to directing the music at Peace Lutheran Church in West Seattle, to challenging the Seattle Metropolitan Singers to improve the depth and breadth of their singing. John plans to relax during his free evenings, and maybe take up singing in a group for himself.

The concert program “Encores” will include songs from the past 12 years of concerts, including such pieces as “A Girl’s Garden,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Hotaru Koi,” and “The Storm is Passing Over.”

At this concert, the Seattle Metropolitan Singers will also introduce the incoming director of the group.

Please join the Seattle Metropolitan Singers for their annual spring concert on Sunday, June 3rd, at 3:00 p.m. The performance will be held at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church, 3050 California Ave SW. A farewell reception will be held after the concert.
