Beverages, appetizers, a full dinner and dessert dash will round out the evening. Please join us for this fun night.

Early Bird tickets are available if you act fast and can be purchased at: chiefsealthptsa.schoolauction.net/mno2018

The DSPA (Denny Sealth Performing Arts) servers approximately 300 scholars in the Middle School and High School Performing Arts programs.

Band, Orchestra, Jazz, Mariachi and Choir scholars, work all year on their craft, and share with the community in a few performances. And performance is a key element in the art.

Many of our scholars will be traveling this spring to destinations such as Disneyland, California and Silverwood, Idaho.

Our high school jazz scholars recently returned from Montana for such an experience. Your ticket purchase allows the DSPA to raise money for scholarships for those students who would not be able to afford the experience of such travel.

Our program serves a population of approximately 63% free and reduced lunch, students. Besides travel, the DSPA helps to cover the cost of maintenance and purchase of musical instruments, band uniforms and all of the small things; sheet music, rosin, strings etc, that, keep our scholars making the beautiful music and creating the amazing performances that we’ve come to expect from our Denny-Sealth programs. Our instructors rely on their ability to write grants and your generosity to be able to provide working instruments for our performing arts scholars.

The DSPA’s ability to support our performing arts scholars is due in large part to the generous donations from parents, individuals, local business and corporate donors that believe in our mission to support these budding performing arts scholars. Thank you for your support!

‘An Octoroon’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Apr 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

An Octoroon
By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

April 19–May 13, 2018
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

In 1859, the handsome George arrives as heir apparent to Terrabonne, his late uncle’s slave plantation. There he quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful “octoroon” – someone who is one-eighth Black – but the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans for both Terrebonne and Zoe. Nothing is sacred in this genre-bending work: race, identity and time are bent by the whims of AN OCTOROON’s audacious storytelling. Racial stereotypes both past and present are shattered in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ bold, imaginative re-envisioning of a 19th century antebellum drama as an urgent message for today.

At Kenyon Hall:

Saturday, April 28, at 7:30 – I Can Get It For You Wholesale

The Seattle Jewish Theater Company returns with the 1962 Broadway musical that launched the careers of both Barbra Streisand and Elliott Gould. A dozen talented local performers, directed by the company’s artistic director, Art Feinglass, bring this entertaining production to life.

The critical and popular hit is the story of an ambitious young businessman artfully clawing his way to the top of the garment industry in 1930s New York. The show explores the perils of ambition and the price of success. Contrasting the swinging, jazzy rhythms of big city business with the earthy, traditional sounds of the characters’ Eastern European Jewish origins, I Can Get It For You Wholesale captures the energy and promise of a pivotal time in American history.

For more information, please visit www.seattlejewishtheater.com.

On April 28, front 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, and high school students are $5.

Nature of Person, with The Rev. Kate Wesch

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.

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.

Ladies of Sound performs @ C & P Coffee Company
Apr 29 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Ladies of Sound performs at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor). More from C & P:

Ladies of Sound is a musical duo from LA, built on the immaculate harmonies and rigorous musicianship of songwriters Cyndy Fike and Cristina Vane. Vane, an Italian-born, French raised Guatemalan transplant fell in love with the uniquely American styles of delta blues, old time music, folk, country, and classic rock; while Fike, hailing from Texas, fuses her love for pop, r&b, and electronic with her staunchly country and folk roots. As such, their repertoire includes an exciting range of music from traditional old time banjo tunes to rock classics from the 70s and 80s, as well as explorative instrumentation and vocal arrangements.

‘An Octoroon’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
May 3 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

An Octoroon
By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

April 19–May 13, 2018
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

In 1859, the handsome George arrives as heir apparent to Terrabonne, his late uncle’s slave plantation. There he quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful “octoroon” – someone who is one-eighth Black – but the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans for both Terrebonne and Zoe. Nothing is sacred in this genre-bending work: race, identity and time are bent by the whims of AN OCTOROON’s audacious storytelling. Racial stereotypes both past and present are shattered in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ bold, imaginative re-envisioning of a 19th century antebellum drama as an urgent message for today.

Kids’ yoga fundraiser for Children’s Hospital @ Multiple locations
May 5 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.

Mahonia Evaluation Project Work Party — May 5!

The Pacific Northwest Mahonia Evaluation Project is hosting its next work party on Saturday, May 5, 10 am to 12 noon. To participate, meet at the Mahonia Research Plot, located at the south end of the South Seattle College campus.

Spring is here and the North American Mahonias are blooming!

This is a unique opportunity to participate in ‘citizen science,’ observe the growth of over 90 kinds of Mahonia, and work with some of the region’s top horticulturists. While most people know Mahonia as “Oregon Grape,” the genus includes about 100 species native to eastern Asia and western North America. We are evaluating species and cultivars that show tremendous landscape potential, many which are currently not available in PNW nurseries.

For 2018, we will hold volunteer work parties on the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month, from 10 am-noon. Activities vary with the season, but typically include weeding, mulching, and related plant stewardship. Snacks and refreshments are provided, and each session includes a tour of the research plot.
For more information about the Pacific Northwest Mahonia Evaluation Project, click here or send your questions to mahoniaseattle@gmail.com. To find our location and driving directions, click here. And when you’re ready, please sign up for any of our community work parties. It’s easy to sign up—just click here.

Our next work party is on Saturday, May 5, from 10 am to noon.

This research is sponsored by South Seattle College and funded by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

Looking forward to seeing you among the Mahonia.

A guided series of short videos on critical topics related to Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI), more than any other technology, has the potential to transform the future. Who, or what, is shaping this technology? How will humans weigh in?

We shall consider AI and our future existence–while humans can still play a role.

‘An Octoroon’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
May 5 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

An Octoroon
By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

April 19–May 13, 2018
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

In 1859, the handsome George arrives as heir apparent to Terrabonne, his late uncle’s slave plantation. There he quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful “octoroon” – someone who is one-eighth Black – but the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans for both Terrebonne and Zoe. Nothing is sacred in this genre-bending work: race, identity and time are bent by the whims of AN OCTOROON’s audacious storytelling. Racial stereotypes both past and present are shattered in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ bold, imaginative re-envisioning of a 19th century antebellum drama as an urgent message for today.

Winner – 2014 OBIE Award for Best New American Play

“Super oxygenating—despite moments of palpable fear and disquiet, we leave feeling somehow healthier, as though the theater has given us a violent shake and a pep talk.” —Time Out (New York)

Saturday, May 5, at 7:30 – Maurice Tani in Concert
Maurice Tani has been a popular fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene for many years, dating back to stints with a pair of eclectic retro party bands, the Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra and Big Bang Beat. However, when he went solo as a singer-songwriter a number of years ago, audiences saw a new side of him: His country- and jazz-tinged songs were intimate stories about love and loss in the modern world, sung in a distinctive, resonant baritone. He has some serious vocal chops. Please visit youtube.com/watch?v=UXjHE6C4fdM.

Friday, May 11, at 7:30 – The MiniSymphony
We’ve featuring some interesting combinations of instruments over the years, but this may be the most unusual. The MiniSymphony consists of a string quartet, a piano, and an accordion! They’re featured performers on cruise ships around the world, and now and again spend a bit of time on land. They produce a variety pops concert featuring a mix of classical, tango, Broadway, Gypsy, and more. Perfect fare for the whole family. Please visit minisymphony.org for more information.

Kids’ yoga fundraiser for Children’s Hospital @ Multiple locations
May 6 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.

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.

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

In 1859, the handsome George arrives as heir apparent to Terrabonne, his late uncle’s slave plantation. There he quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful “octoroon” – someone who is one-eighth Black – but the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans for both Terrebonne and Zoe. Nothing is sacred in this genre-bending work: race, identity and time are bent by the whims of AN OCTOROON’s audacious storytelling. Racial stereotypes both past and present are shattered in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ bold, imaginative re-envisioning of a 19th century antebellum drama as an urgent message for today.

“Super oxygenating—despite moments of palpable fear and disquiet, we leave feeling somehow healthier, as though the theater has given us a violent shake and a pep talk.” —Time Out (New York)

Words, Writers, West Seattle: May 2018, ‘The Judge: 26 Machiavellian Lessons’ @ Southwest Library
May 10 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Co-authors Professor David Skover and Professor Ronald Collins jump into the perennial debate over the political neutrality of judges.

Despite widespread popular support of the ideal of the apolitical judge, Skover and Collins argue that this ideal is a fantasy. They ask us to assume that judges are political and need advice on how to be effective political actors. Here they turn to a classic book on political strategy, Niccolo Machiavelli’s “The Prince.” In their view, our debates over judicial nominees and sitting judges should recognize that the law is inseparable from realpolitik.

Professor Skover teaches at Seattle University School of Law and lectures in the fields of federal constitutional law, federal courts, free speech and mass communications theory.
Notes Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.

This program is part of the Words, Writers and West Seattle series which features writers connected to the Duwamish Peninsula. Presented in partnership with the Southwest Historical Society.

Programs are held monthly on the second Thursday evenings.
Books will be available for purchase.

‘An Octoroon’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
May 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

An Octoroon
By Branden Jacobs-Jenkins

April 19–May 13, 2018
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

In 1859, the handsome George arrives as heir apparent to Terrabonne, his late uncle’s slave plantation. There he quickly falls in love with Zoe, a beautiful “octoroon” – someone who is one-eighth Black – but the evil overseer M’Closky has other plans for both Terrebonne and Zoe. Nothing is sacred in this genre-bending work: race, identity and time are bent by the whims of AN OCTOROON’s audacious storytelling. Racial stereotypes both past and present are shattered in Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ bold, imaginative re-envisioning of a 19th century antebellum drama as an urgent message for today.

May 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Saturday, May 5, at 7:30 – Maurice Tani in Concert
Maurice Tani has been a popular fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area music scene for many years, dating back to stints with a pair of eclectic retro party bands, the Zasu Pitts Memorial Orchestra and Big Bang Beat. However, when he went solo as a singer-songwriter a number of years ago, audiences saw a new side of him: His country- and jazz-tinged songs were intimate stories about love and loss in the modern world, sung in a distinctive, resonant baritone. He has some serious vocal chops. Please visit youtube.com/watch?v=UXjHE6C4fdM.

Friday, May 11, at 7:30 – The MiniSymphony
We’ve featuring some interesting combinations of instruments over the years, but this may be the most unusual. The MiniSymphony consists of a string quartet, a piano, and an accordion! They’re featured performers on cruise ships around the world, and now and again spend a bit of time on land. They produce a variety pops concert featuring a mix of classical, tango, Broadway, Gypsy, and more. Perfect fare for the whole family. Please visit minisymphony.org for more information.

Kids’ yoga fundraiser for Children’s Hospital @ Multiple locations
May 12 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.

Free: Earthquake home retrofit workshop @ Southwest Library
May 12 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Help reduce damage caused during an earthquake. Learn to become an informed consumer or how to do home retrofit yourself. Retrofit experts will show how to assess your home’s needs and how to use the City of Seattle’s pre-engineered Home Retrofit plans to permit and retrofit your home.

Prior to 1980, building codes did not require builders to secure houses to their foundations. This does not mean that every house built before 1980 is “unsecured”, only that it was not a requirement. If your home is not properly secured, it may be at increased risk of “slipping” off the foundation during a major earthquake. Retrofitting involves bolting your home to its foundation and providing sheer/pony wall strength.

This workshop is presented in partnership with the Seattle Office of Emergency Management and Seattle Department of Planning and Development.
