You can also bring them to the Windermere Summer Splash event on Saturday, August 16 at Green Lake, where Gentle Giants Moving Company will collect the sneakers and deliver them to King County Boys and Girls Club, and Mary’s Place, in time for the first day of school.

      “Studies show that when kids feel good about their appearance, it improves both their self-esteem and their performance in school,” said OB Jacobi, president of Windermere Real Estate. “We think every child deserves to start the school year on the right foot, so with the public’s help, we’re determined to make that happen for as many kids as possible.”

      The two-week Kicks for Kids sneaker drive will end on August 16 at the Windermere Summer Splash event at Green Lake. Together, with partners Seattle Parks and Recreation and the George Pocock Rowing Foundation, this free, daylong event will celebrate summer fun and healthy activities for families.

    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.

      9:00 pm – 10:00 pm

      West Seattle’s The Celtic Swell Irish Pub & Restaurant is holding a fundraising event for their employee Ron Anderson, who recently lost his home to a fire.

      Friday August 8th at 9 pm
      Featuring the musical stylings of Justin Kausel-Hayes

      Ron and Shaa Ackerson Fire Relief fund: Raise $$ to help reunite Ron’s family and cover the costs of the tragic fire that took his home.

      Our employee Ron Ackerson recently lost his home due to a fire July 17th, 2014. Ron and his wife Shaa are a blended family of 15 made up of Ron’s 5 kids, Shaa’s 4 kids, and their 3 children together. Additionally, Shaa’s little sister died in 2011 and they have full permanent full custody of her daughter, and Ron’s sister became mentally ill and they have full permanent custody of her daughter.

      Due to the tragic fire, Ron’s family is now separated because they are homeless. Our heart breaks for Ron and Shaa, they cannot stand to be apart because they have always been a tight knit family unit.

      Can’t make it Friday? Visit the donation page here.

    4. 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.

    2. South Delridge raingarden project: ‘Walk and talk’
      6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      West Seattle’s next roadside-raingarden project, officially dubbed the Delridge Natural Drainage System, is in the “early design” process. Next chance for neighbors to get updates and ask questions has just been announced – a “project-design walk-and-talk” event on Tuesday, August 12th, starting at the corner of 17th and Elmgrove (map) at 6 pm. The updates, according to this postcard that’s on its way to nearby mailboxes, will include a chance to “review proposed design concepts and plantings.” Like the county-initiated “green stormwater infrastructure” raingardens under construction in Westwood and Sunrise Heights, the goal is to reduce the stormwater going into the combined-sewer system, which in turn should reduce overflows at the end of the line. Construction is scheduled for next year.

    4. HPAC special meeting: Highland Park Elementary @ HPIC
      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      From the Highland Park Action Committee:

      While we are not meeting over the summer during our regular meeting time, we are calling a special meeting in response to requests heard at our last meeting. Please join us at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden on Tuesday, August 12th at 7 pm to discuss Highland Park Elementary. We sent the following invitation to school and city officials:

      + +
      Dear Principal Cronas, your colleagues at Seattle Public School, City Council Members Burgess and Bagshaw, and Mayor Murray,

      We are the Co-Chairs of the Highland Park Action Committee, a community group that advocates for the Highland Park and Riverview Neighborhoods in Southwest Seattle. Our role is to affect positive change in our neighborhood, and we have historically been active in bringing together a voice for our neighborhood, which has faced many challenges.

      We hosted parent Peter Weiss at our May community meeting, who came to speak with us as a member of the Highland Park Elementary’s PTA. In discussing his ideas with us to organize a 5K as a fundraiser for the school, the community learned about the state of affairs for our local school- Highland Park Elementary is ranked last in the Seattle Public School System.

      Some of our members were brought to tears with this news, exhausted by what feels like yet another blind eye turned towards our community from our leaders. We write to you in response to a request that night from the community to get some answers as to why our school is doing so badly and what the plan is for improvement. We have since discussed this idea with the PTA and have formed a partnership in our efforts. We, along with incoming PTA president Sol Mendez, would like to invite you to a meeting to discuss the school, and answer some questions from our community.

      Please let us know if you can join us at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden on Tuesday, August 12th at 7 pm.

      Sincerely,
      Carolyn and Billy Stauffer (Co-Chairs, Highland Park Action Committee)
      Sol Mendez (President, Highland Park Elementary PTA)

      Invitation Sent To:
      Chris Cronas – Principal, Highland Park Elementary
      Marty McLaren – School Board member
      Israel Vela – Executive Director of Schools for West Seattle
      Michael Tolley – Assistant Supt for Teaching and Learning
      Shauna Heath – Executive Director of Curriculum and Instruction
      Cashel Toner – Director of Early Learning

      Join EarthCorps and the Port of Seattle as we restore this site along the Duwamish River. Terminal 105 restoration construction was completed in 1995; prior to that, the narrow property was used as driveway and parking lot. Now it is a Port of Seattle public access site with picnic tables, a hand boat launch, and a small natural area. Environmental stewardship activities began in 2000. EarthCorps is working with the Port of Seattle to remove additional invasive weeds along the main river channel and replace them with native plants.

      EarthCorps supplies gloves, tools, water, light refreshments and volunteer education that covers safety, information on the park you are working in, forest health, environmental restoration and the overview of the project. No prior experience is necessary, just come ready to learn something new!

    4. 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.

      Contact Lao-Shi (teacher) Caylen Storm at 206-385- 8841 or Caylen@stormtaichi.com

Parks is working to complete the permitting for the house demolition and anticipates demolition work will occur on September 15, 2014 with restoration of the site and establishment of turf to be completed by April 2015.

    7. Riverside Walking Tour
      10:00 am – 12:00 pm

      Join the Southwest Seattle Historical Society this Saturday for Riverside Walking Tour.

      Have you ever wanted to learn more about the seemingly abandoned neighborhood beneath the West Seattle Bridge and along West Marginal Way?

      It’s called Riverside, and it will be the focus of a walking tour at 10 am to noon Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014.

      Led by long-timer Frank Zuvela and Advisory Council member Jerry Vandenberg, the tour will start from Riverside Plaza, which was dedicated in January 2012, at the corner of West Marginal Way and Marginal Place Southwest. Clay Eals, executive director of the historical society, will be on hand to assist.

      Cost for the tour is $5, payable upon at the outset of the tour. In addition, a booklet titled “Riverside” will be for sale for $10.

      Zuvela’s family arrived at the mouth of the Duwamish River in 1904, and like the majority of Riverside’s fishing families, his forebears came from Croatia.

      Riverside Plaza features multi-colored commemorative tiles for families and home sites that are arranged to repeat the patterns of the neighborhood. From the plaza, the tour will cover 18th, 17th and 16th Avenues Southwest as well as the low-level Spokane Street swing bridge.

And, because we think all dogs are super models, each and every canine contestant will get their photo in the magazine! So, mark your calendar and join us at one or more of the following model searches!

    4. 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.

    7. Bob’s Bowl-A-Rama fundraiser @ West Seattle Bowl
      7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      From Ingrid at Georgetown Brewing Company:

      The event is called Bob’s Bowl-A-Rama, and it is the final event of our fundraising for Ronald McDonald House Charities for 2014.

      Charles “Bob” Hirsch was the inspiration for our beer, Bob’s Brown Ale. Manny, one of Georgetown Brewing Co.’s founders, met Bob when he was a counselor at Camp Goodtimes and Bob was a camper. Bob fought cancer for half of his life, and when he passed away, the company decided to brew a beer in his honor and donate all of the proceeds. Bob’s mom chose RMHC as the recipient charity for our donation saying “They put us up for treatment every time we came in from Alaska.” For the past 9 years, we’ve released Bob’s Brown Ale on Bob’s birthday, May 14th, and have raised over $400,000 to date. Even if folks can’t buy a lane, even if they just come out for a pint of Bob’s Brown Ale and buy a raffle ticket, that would be great.

      Bob’s Bowl-A-Rama starts at 7 pm Thursday August 28th at West Seattle Bowl and if you’re interested in a lane, sign up ASAP – here’s all the info.

    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 teachers are ready to meet their students at the Open House on Tuesday. The ribbon cutting event will be out in the courtyard at 2:45 with classrooms open for visitation from 3:00­ ‐ 5:00. Please do not come earlier that day as the upper area of the building will be closed so that teachers can finish last minute planning and setup.

      Look for adults in bright blue shirts (with the Fairmount Park logo on front) for classroom assignment information.

      Parking for the Open House is going to be challenging. Please walk if you are able to. It will be less stressful for your entire family to park 4 – 5 blocks away and have a peaceful walk to the school grounds.”

      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.

      West Seattle Meaningful Movies and the Southwest Seattle Historical Society presents:
      Princess Angeline

      Princess Angeline is a documentary by award-winning Seattle filmmakers Sandy and Yasu Osawa. They will both be attending this screening.

      Princess Angeline was the daughter of Chief Seattle. She was one of the few Duwamish people left in Seattle by the 1890s, only thirty-five years after the peace treaty was signed guaranteeing that land would be reserved for the Duwamish people (which never happened).

      The Duwamish Tribe was recognized at the end of the Clinton administration, only to have that recognition overturned by the incoming Bush administration. With historical photographs, interviews, and narration, this documentary explores the story of the Duwamish people and their unrecognized tribal status. The beautiful Duwamish Longhouse is here in West Seattle—on West Marginal Way, close to the Duwamish River. Come learn about and consider taking action on behalf of Seattle’s First People.

      The movie is 53 minutes long. There will be a discussion with the filmmakers following the movie.

      at High Point Neighborhood House
      (Bus numbers 21 and 128)

    2. Cooking with Class 2014 @ Salty's on Alki
      6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      From Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor):

      You’ve tossed down a few raw oysters from Taylor Shellfish and paired them with a great oyster wine — maybe the Firesteed Pinot Gris or Alexandria Nicole’s Albariño — out on Salty’s private-dining deck with a view of Seattle’s skyline across Elliott Bay. Now you’re ready to meet your chefs and get to work! This is Cooking with Class 2014, Tuesday, September 9, 6:00 to 9:30 pm. at Salty’s on Alki Beach in West Seattle.

      Participants choose three chefs and interact with them, actually making the dishes and learning their techniques.

      * 22 top Northwest chefs provide hands-on training to small groups of 8.
      * Each chef trains three groups of people for 30 minutes each.
      * Wineries pair their wines with the chefs’ food.
      * Live auction and door prizes with your hosts John Curley and Chef Jeremy McLachlan of Salty’s Seafood Grills.

      You might learn how to create a broth of spicy tomato and white wine to accent local clams (Canyon River Ranch), pair mango and prawns (Far-Eats), sear scallops in black pepper and vanilla brine (Andaluca) or soft poach an egg for your lobster bisque (Seastar Seattle). You get to choose — there are 22 local, amazing chefs who want to share their cooking tips and ideas on food. Throughout the evening, you work with three chefs in separate, small groups, putting the dish together, eating what you create and pairing it with wine donated/paired by wineries. That lobster bisque should go nicely with the 2012 Chateau Ste. Michelle Cold Creek Chardonnay; spot prawns with fresh corn polenta (Salish Lodge & Spa) will be a delight with Sparkman’s 2012 Apparition blend of Roussane, Grenache Blanc and Marsanne. Purple’s Spanish-style mussels will be set off perfectly with Dusted Valley’s 2012 Cabernet Franc.

      Date: Tuesday, September 9th
      Time: 6:00 to 9:30 pm
      Cost: $150 per person (must be 21 or older)
      Location: Salty’s on Alki Duwamish Room (Private Dining Downstairs)

      You’ll need to head to the website at seattledining.com/cwc to look over the chefs and their dishes, the wine pairings and see what you’d like to learn this year. Included you will find Salty’s on Alki Executive Chef Paolo Carey-DiGregorio, Alki Pastry Chef Jena Sorbera and Redondo Executive Chef Gabriel Cabrera. Sign up online, pay through PayPal, and you’ll be ready to go. We’ll send you a confirmation and you’ll see the auction book in advance to plan your strategy. It’s an evening you won’t want to miss.

      The cost of your entry tickets, raffle tickets and auction purchases helps others: the residents and participants of Providence ElderPlace and Providence Heritage House at the Market. These programs care for frail, low-income seniors, and the proceeds from Cooking with Class help fill in the gaps, making lives more comfortable and enjoyable. We can all appreciate what it must feel like to outlive your savings or family members. These programs provide care, socialization and, very importantly, the right to continue making your own decisions and direct your life to the best of your ability.

      Interesting history of the park here.

    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.

This important ecological resource spans nearly 500 acres on the eastern slopes of West Seattle and includes 182 acres of public park land. Since 2003, Nature Consortium has brought volunteers and community members together to help restore habitat in the forest by removing invasive weeds, amending soil, addressing erosion issues, and planting new native trees and shrubs.

    7. Camp Long Mountain Fest
      11:00 am – 5:00 pm

      Seattle Parks and Recreation invites you and your family to celebrate Camp Long Mountain Fest and the 75th anniversary of Schurman Rock from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm on Sunday, September 14th, 2014.

      Camp Long Mountain Fest celebrates Seattle’s mountain climbing history and community. Visitors can challenge themselves on the high ropes course and try climbing and rappelling on Schurman Rock (with waivers). There will be mountain games and interactive workshops for people of all ages and abilities and prizes will be awarded. Jim Whittaker, the first American to climb Mount Everest, is scheduled to attend.

      All events are free and take place at Camp Long (5200 35th Ave. SW).

      Schurman Rock was constructed between 1938 and 1939 by the Work Progress Administration, and is believed to be the first man-made climbing structure in America. It was originally named Monitor Rock because climbing instructors could monitor their students from all sides of the structure. In 1957, it was renamed to honor Clark Schurman who designed it.

      Schurman, known as “The Chief,” was the chief climbing guide on Mount Rainier from 1938 to 1941. As a climber, he sketched and painted his journeys into a book published by The Mountaineers in 1939. Schurman thought it was important for novice climbers to have a practice rock. Schurman Rock stands as a legacy to his vision.

      For more information about Camp Long Mountain Fest, please call 206-423-3460 or visit seattle.gov/environment/rock.htm. Camp Long Mountain Fest is sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Associated Recreation Council, O2 Outdoor Opportunities and Mountain Madness.
