      To RSVP and register to attend, click here.

      Have you heard of the International Coastal Cleanup? It happens every year in September and is the largest global volunteer day in service to our lakes, oceans, and rivers. Each year, approximately 600,000 people worldwide dedicate time to cleaning up their local waterways. The catch is that they record every single piece of trash collected! The results are then sent to the Ocean Conservancy and published into an annual report to give us an idea of exactly what is floating around in our oceans (hint: the most prevalent item is small, plastic, and brown and white in color).

      Last year, over 12 million pounds of trash were collected. Items ranged from a wedding dress to an abandoned toilet to plastic food wrappers and bags. What will be found this year?

      Join us for one of our biggest cleanups of the year at Alki Beach! Coffee and donuts will be provided by Bank of America to keep you energized!

      Nature Consortium invites you to a community picnic and field day in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. This is a special event for all of our West Seattle neighbors to come together and celebrate our beautiful local forest. We will have live music, a scavenger hunt, art activities, and guided hikes through the forest. Bring a picnic, snacks will be provided.

      Picnic in the Park
      Saturday, September 27, 11 am–2 pm
      West Duwamish Greenbelt
      (accessible via the south parking lot at South Seattle College, or at the trail head at 14th Ave SW & SW Holly St)

      Did You Know?

      Located in the Delridge area of West Seattle, The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest remaining forest in the city of Seattle at over 500 acres. That means you don’t have to travel outside of the city to enjoy the great outdoors.

      The West Duwamish Greenbelt provides many benefits for the environment and the community. Bald eagles, hawks, foxes, salamander, and other local wildlife rely on the habitat this greenbelt provides.

      The plants in the forest help to reduce storm water runoff, filter pollutants in the water, and reduce erosion. As these plants absorb carbon dioxide and other pollutants from the air, they also improve air quality and help reduce the effects of global warming.

      And the best part? You don’t have to travel out of the city to experience the great outdoors. Urban forests like the West Duwamish Greenbelt are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

      On Saturday, September 27, 2014, 2–4 pm, come to the West Seattle (Admiral) Library for a hands-on workshop to examine how to use humor effectively in crafting children’s novels. Registration is required.

      Before becoming a children’s book writer, Instructor Kim Baker worked as a children’s crisis counselor and elementary school teacher. Her middle grade novel debut, PICKLE (Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan Children’s Publishing) was one of the New York Public Library’s Best Books for Reading and Sharing, a finalist for the 2013 Children’s Choice Awards, and the recipient of the 2013 Crystal Kite West award from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).

    3. Words, Writers & West Seattle: Poet Susan Rich @ Barnes and Noble, Westwood Village
      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      The public is invited to this FREE series from 5–7 pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.
      Poet and writer Susan Rich is featured on October 3rd, 2014:

      Words, Writers & West Seattle Presents Poet/Writer Susan Rich recently published “Cloud Pharmacy” and was featured at Sept. 5th First Friday event sponsored by Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

      Susan Rich’s “Cloud Pharmacy” is an “intelligent and observant collection” of poems, some inspired by the nineteenth-century photographer Hannah Maynard. She explores the passions of romantic love and fire, memory, needs, self-regard and grief in this work. As Rich herself says,”the interior world opens/lightly….but it doesn’t stay there.” The result is wonderfully strange and unsettling.

      The public is invited to this FREE series from 5–7 pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      Described as a “deep, mindful thinker and a lover of language,” Rich is the author of several essays and of four collections of poetry: Cloud Pharmacy, The Alchemist’s Kitchen, named a finalist for the Foreword Prize and the Washington State Book Award, Cures Include Travel, and The Cartographer’s Tongue, winner of the PEN USA Award for Poetry. She will discuss her process of writing based on historical figures.

      Rich’s poems have appeared in many national and international journals including the Harvard Review, Poetry Ireland Review, and TriQuarterly. Along with Jared Hawkley and Brian Turner, Susan is the co-editor of The Strangest of Theatres: Poets Crossing borders, a selection of themed travel essays for poets who want to travel, it was published by McSweeney’s and the Poetry Foundation in 2013.

      3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

      Save the date – October 5th from 3-6 pm! From Teri Ensley at Furry Faces Foundation:

      It’s a Wine Tasting! Here’s how it works:
      Each person brings a bottle of red or white wine. Upon arrival it is wrapped in foil and assigned a number, with the ‘type of wine’ written on it, e.g., Merlot (you need to remember the number of your bottle). Reds and whites are separated onto different tables. You walk about with your (F3 provided) wine glass, mingling with really cool people, pouring your own tastes. Write your thoughts on your (F3 provided) tasting card.

      At the end of the evening, you vote for your favorite wine of the evening and turn it in. We tally the votes. There will be a gift card prize for the #1 Red and the #1 White. There will be some nibbles and noshes, however, you may want to eat a good lunch ahead of time because if say 50 people attend…that’s 50 bottles of wine to taste!

      This event is to help raise the funds for Furry Faces Foundation’s 501(c)3* $800.00 application fee. We will have a suggested donation amount at our check in table…something reasonable like $10ish. It’s only suggested; not required to attend. The donation jar will not be on the check in table–it’ll be in some other, super cool place, so there is no pressure.

      * We are a Washington State Charity/non-profit and have decided to apply for our 501 (c) 3 status.

    3. Two Beers Brewing Company & Seattle Cider Company tasting event @ Metropolitan Market
      4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

      Stop in at Metropolitan Market/Admiral (WSB sponsor) Friday October 17th, 4–6:00 pm:

      Seattle is lucky to be home to more than a fair share of breweries, but far fewer cideries forge spots in the landscape. Seattle Cider Company is owned and operated by the folks behind the popular Two Beers Brewing Company.

      The first cidery since Prohibition in these parts, they scour the state for the best apples for each variety they make. In order to get the best flavor, they pick apples at the peak of freshness, press them, and hold the juice in barrels until it’s time to blend for target taste. The zero bris dry cider boasts an ephemeral “on and off the palate” flavor, which Dan Armerding (tasting room manager) says adds to its ability to go with “just about anything, especially foods like asparagus and fish.”

      Their fall seasonal flavor, Pumpkin Spice, is definitely worth a second sip. With the inclusion of pumpkin in the pressing, co-owner Mark Satterly says they aimed for “full-on pumpkin flavor, but with an apple backbone,” keeping it more in the pleasing realm of a pie-spiced cider. The clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice flavors bring great complexity without a lot of sweetness.

      Stop in to meet your favorite brewers while you sip their beers and nosh on snacks.*

      * To join us for a complimentary tasting, you must be at least 21 and provide valid identification upon your onetime entry (no exceptions). Limited to food, four servings of wine or beer, and space available. Please note: final pour will be 15 minutes before the tasting is closed to ensure that you will have time to taste all the offerings.

      Flu shot clinics provided for all SPS students, staff, and their families

      Seattle Public Schools is partnering with the Seattle Visiting Nurse Association to provide flu shot clinics for all students, staff, and their families at no charge with proof of current medical insurance.

      According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the single best protection from influenza is to receive a flu shot each year. The CDC recommends everyone 6 months old and over be vaccinated against the flu.

      West Seattle clinic locations and dates:

      West Seattle High School: Monday, October 20, 2:30-7:00 pm

      Clinics will be open to all Seattle Public Schools children (4 years of age and older) and their families. Please note that students under the age of 18 will need a Patient Consent Form signed by a parent or guardian.

      Patient Consent Forms are available at the clinics, or click here to download.

      All participants will be asked to provide their health insurance information (card) to receive an immunization. SVNA will electronically bill the insurance plan for your flu shot. They bill all insurance plans including Apple Health (Washington State Medicaid) plans. Flu shots are considered preventive care and are not subject to deductibles or co-pays. This means no out-of-pocket expense for participants.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

    13. Admiral Church Organ Fundraiser @ Admiral Congregational United Church of Christ
      3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

      Admiral Congregational United Church of Christ has a long history. Founded in 1899 as West Side Congregational Church, when the original church was dedicated in 1901, on the site of what is now the Admiral Church parking lot, it was the first church building in West Seattle. The current building was completed in 1961 and eventually renamed Admiral Church.

      A pipe organ for the new sanctuary was commissioned in 1961 from Balcom and Vaughan organ builders. The pipes came from Holland, the blowers from Switzerland. It has 21 ranks consisting of 1,111 pipes. The purchase price was $12,000. The organ is currently valued at $400,000.

      The 52-year-old organ has been loved and appreciated by generations of Admiralites. It is now in urgent need of renovation and repair. Admiral Church began “The Year of the Organ” in April of this year, with the goal of raising the needed $50,000 by April, 2015. Over $30,000 has been given and pledged so far.

      On Saturday, October 25 at 3 pm, as part of “The Year of the Organ”, Admiral Church is hosting a benefit concert. Among the talented Seattle celebrities who will be supporting Admiral with their performances at this concert are jazz piano legend Overton Berry, gospel matriarch Grace Holden, and Admiral’s own fabulous organist, Keith Terhune. After the concert there will be a champagne reception and a chance to donate to the organ restoration fund.

      If you live in southwest Seattle, Burien, North Highline, or Tukwila, and have been thinking about installing a solar system on your home or small business, this program is for you! Solarize Southwest offers an exciting solar group purchase program for residents who live south of Downtown, west of I-5, and north of the Seattle City Light service boundary.

      1. Register

      Attend a free Solarize Washington workshop to learn about solar energy technology, solar economics in Washington, and this limited time group purchase opportunity. Workshop attendance will put you on the fast track to receive a free site assessment. Workshop schedule:

      LAST WORKSHOP Wednesday, October 29, 7-8:30 pm- Highland Park Improvement Club, 1116 SW Holden Street Seattle

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

    6. The Whale Trail Speaker Series: “Protected Zones for Puget Sound Orcas” @ C & P Coffee Company
      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      The latest in a new series of Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle takes place Thursday October 30th, 7:00–9:00 pm at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor). $5 suggested donation, kids free. Tickets are available online.

      “A Protected Zone for Puget Sound Orcas”
      Bruce Stedman, Orca Relief

      The Southern Resident Killer Whales are endangered and seriously declining; their 2014 population of 79 is the lowest since 1985. To aid their recovery, Orca Relief is urging NOAA Fisheries to conduct a public process that will result in a Whale Protection Zone for the SRKWs.

      A well designed and enforced WPZ would provide the Southern Resident Orca a safe-haven in the very core of their critical habitat, and a relief from vessel impacts including noise, disturbance and air pollution. Bruce Stedman, Executive Director of Orca Relief will describe the key aspects of how a protected area for the Orca should be developed and how it could help
      the SRKWs begin to recover.

      Join us to hear the latest about the orcas, and updates from Robin Lindsay (Seal Sitters), and Diver Laura James (tox-ick.org). This is the first in a new series of Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle.

      Buy tickets ahead of time and we’ll save you a seat! And hurry – this will likely sell out.

      About the Speaker
      The Executive Director of Orca Relief Citizens’ Alliance, Bruce Stedman has more than three decades of experience in marine conservation, ocean health issues, and whale conservation. He was one of the core team that built the Whale Museum (Friday Harbor, WA) and was its first curator. He has directed five other conservation and environmental organizations, as well as working as an environmental mediator for 15 years. He has facilitated or mediated more than 100 decision-making or information-sharing processes on many environmental topics, and designed/conducted more than 55 workshops or study tours for public officials and technical specialists from over 40 countries. Trained at University of Washington and MIT, Mr. Stedman has taught conservation and environmental courses at Harvard, MIT, Tufts, and Western Washington Universities.

      About The Whale Trail
      The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites around the region where the public may view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment by establishing a network of viewing sites along the whales’ trails through the Salish Sea and the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest.

      Our goals are to increase awareness that our marine waters are home to orcas and other species; connect visitors to orcas, other marine wildlife and their habitat; inspire stewardship and build community; promote land-based whale watching. Our over-arching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas do not go extinct.

      The Whale Trail provides simple, powerful, and long-lasting reminders to visitors and residents alike that orcas and other whales live in our waters. Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 22 million people each year. Our near-term goals are to add a site in every coastal county in Washington, and around Vancouver Island, throughout the orcas’ range. Together, we will turn the tide for the whales!

      The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      Performances: Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

Its creator Jill Morley is a prolific artist and media voice. Her other award-winning films have appeared at the American Film Institute, the Santa Barbara Film Festival, The Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival and the International San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and have run on the Sundance Channel. She has also written extensively for publications like The Village Voice and Bust Magazine, and worked as a producer on NPR’s This American Life and Michael Moore’s The Awful Truth. Morley believes in the power of supporting young women through programs like Reel Grrls, and is coming to Seattle for this screening of her film and to kick off the campaign benefiting the organization.

      Early this fall, Reel Grrls welcomed new Executive Director Nancy Chang, who has brought refreshing energy back to Reel Grrls. Nancy is a tenacious and accomplished youth program innovator. She brings deep and authentic youth community development experience to Reel Grrls from her position as Co-Founder and Board Chair of Skate Like a Girl, a non-profit promoting an all-inclusive skateboarding community. With a background in art and public administration, she has successfully applied her skills to developing creative solutions for building healthy communities, shifting culture, and maintaining fiscally sound programming in the cities of Redmond, Seattle and beyond.
