      It is the 6th Anniversary of the building of the first Duwamish Longhouse since the last one was burned down in West Seattle in 1894 to push the Duwamish off their land. In 1851, there were over 90 Duwamish Longhouses. Opened in 2009, the Longhouse is a traditional cedar post and beam structure designed in the Puget Salish Longhouse style. It houses a Native Art Gallery, Duwamish History Museum, Gift Shop, Duwamish Tribal Offices, and traditional Longhouse. As in ancient times, Longhouse is the site where tribal business is conducted and cultural & educational events are held.

      Roger Fernandes is a Native American artist whose work reflects the culture and beliefs of the Puget Salish tribes of the Pacific Northwest Coast. A member of the Lower Elwha S’Klallam Tribe, he was born and raised in Seattle and studied art at the University of Washington.

      Thursday, January 29 at Chaco Canyon (West Seattle) from 6:30 pm–8:30 pm

      Please join us for an evening of discovering your true self as you learn to become more mindful in your daily life.

      Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and fully alive in this present moment. In this workshop, you will learn to bring your mind and body more into harmony, allowing you to be more aware of both your inner and outer world and less on “auto-pilot.” While awake in this present moment, we find we are not held back from our past conditioning nor are we fearful of what our future may hold.

      This workshop will help you to:

      Relax and de-stress
      Manage difficult emotions
      Become aware of self-limiting habits
      Access your true potential
      Live a healthier and happier life

      This workshop will include:

      Guided meditations
      Mindful eating techniques
      Gentle yoga (from your chair)
      Conscious observation and breathing techniques
      Best practices for living mindfully

      Cost: $40 per person. Limited space.

      Tap into your inner wisdom and reserve a space online at

      Southwest Seattle Super String Saturday at Chief Sealth International High School, is a free community event.

      Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras (SYSO) presents this annual celebration of its public school partnership program, the Southwest Seattle String Project. Violin, viola, cello and bass students from Roxhill, Arbor Heights, Sanislo, Concord, Highland Park, and West Seattle Elementary Schools as well as Denny International Middle School have been receiving support by professional musicians from SYSO throughout the year. At this free event, the students will all come together to hear a mini-concert performed by Seattle Youth Symphony, one of America’s top youth orchestras, and then go on to engage in interactive learning sessions led by the Youth Symphony musicians.

      The string students will also have the chance to perform “side-by-side” with the Youth Symphony, giving many of these beginning musicians a chance to experience being part of a full orchestra.

      Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen and Office of Arts and Culture Director Randy Engstrom will be on hand to welcome families and meet the young musicians. The event is for the Southwest string music students and their families, as well as community members interested in attending the free mini-concert by SYSO. For event information, contact Kathleen Allen, SYSO Director of Education at Kathleen@syso.org or (206) 362-2300.

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle” Presents World-Recognized Author Theresa McCormick.

      February 6th “Book Talk” Event sponsored by Southwest Seattle Historical Society

      West Seattle author Theresa McCormick, Ed.D. has published “A Far Cry From Here: Growing Up and Out of Fundamentalism” (University Book Store Press, 2014) and will share her book and experiences with the public at a FREE presentation on Friday, February 6th, from 5 to 7pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      In this transformative memoir, overlapping threads about whiteness, race and gender, and the power of fundamentalist faith to yield security, yet limit growth, weave throughout the stories making this a timely, inspiring, and compelling memoir. McCormick’s life story focuses on stories of her whitewashed girlhood, growing up in rural Texas in a fundamentalist Christian family with all their complex relationships, limitations and strengths.

      These stories take the reader on her journey from a restrictive, limiting upbringing, through the separation from her family and their oppressive religion, and onto the path of discovery of her own spiritual life. This transformation includes her journey into a feminist activist womanhood as a professor, writer and artist. Currently writing creative nonfiction, McCormick has been honored for lifelong dedication and leadership and recognized by Worldwide Who’s Who for Excellence in Education and Art. Her website is: www.theresamccormick.com, and she may be reached at: theresamcco@comcast.net.

      Words, Writers & West Seattle’s next FIRST FRIDAY book talk is scheduled for March 6th and will feature Barbara Howett and “Ladies of the Borabudur” Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by calling Dora-Faye Hendricks, chair, Words, Writers & West Seattle, by phone at 206-280-9983, or by e-mail at: Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

    3. Feet First 3rd Annual Stairway Walks Day @ West Seattle
      10:00 am – 12:00 pm

      On Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, join Feet First for Stairway Walks Day. Urban explorers are invited to join one of free, guided neighborhood walks featuring outdoor stairways in West Seattle. Space is limited to 35 people per walk. Please RSVP in advance at www.feetfirst.org or http://stairwaywalksday2015.bpt.me/ (when the signup period opens).

      On these stairway routes you’ll discover gems you wouldn’t see otherwise. Colorful mosaics, serene pocket parks, restored creeks and gorgeous home are quietly hidden amid these stairway passages. Come see the sights and learn the stories that only Seattle stairways can tell… and only your feet can take you!

      All proceeds for this event help support Feet First’s mission to ensure all communities across Washington are walkable.

      Suggested donations start at $10, with free admission for children under 18.
      Pay what you wish – no one will be turned away from joining in the fun.

      RESERVE YOUR SPOT TODAY:
      http://cts.vresp.com/c/?FeetFirst/8720108786/cd831fc4da/d580c38f0f

      The stairs, many of them more than 100 years old, form a network of “scenic byways” for neighborhood discovery – a priceless asset for outdoor fun, fitness and health. The stairway routes featured on Stairway Walks Day are from Cathy and Jake Jaramillo’s book Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods. The book is intended to help urban adventurers discover and appreciate the beautiful greenspaces, history, art and architecture that make up the vivid fabric of our neighborhoods.

      According to author and Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassador Cathy Jaramillo, “Stairways are truly the scenic byways to neighborhoods, and we’re always curious about what’s at the top – or the bottom. They get you to, and between, places you’d probably never know about otherwise. We’re excited about celebrating them with so many people on Stairway Walks Day!”

      More about Feet First: Since 2001, Feet First has worked to ensure that all communities in Washington are walkable. Walking is a vital transportation mode that connects communities, reduces pollution, improves health and physical fitness, and allows people to explore their natural environment.

      9:00 am – 8:00 pm

      On February 11th from 9 am – 8 pm, South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) will host a free F.A.F.S.A. (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) workshop for students and community members interested in learning more about how to pay for college.

      The event is part of a statewide initiative administered by the Washington Student Achievement council called “College Goal in Washington,” that is designed to increase low income, first generation, and underrepresented students’ completion of the F.A.F.S.A. Financial aid experts from South will be onsite to work individually with students and families and answer questions about how to pay for college and how to access financial aid successfully. Students who are ineligible for the F.A.F.S.A. due to citizenship status may be eligible to file the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (W.A.S.F.A.) to help them access other financial resources that will help them pay for college.

      Last year, Washington State was first among all 34 College Goal Sunday states, serving 2,421 potential F.A.F.S.A. filers. This is South Seattle College’s first year participating in this campaign. In addition to receiving help with their F.A.F.S.A. forms, representatives from Student Outreach will also be on-hand to offer guided tours of South’s campus.

      For more information about the event, please contact Lyanne O’Connell, Financial Literacy Specialist, at 206.934.5220, or by email at: Lyanne.oconnell@seattlecolleges.edu. For more information about the statewide and national campaigns, please contact Anna Batie, College Goal Washington State Coordinator, at 360-753-7856 or annab@wsac.wa.gov.

    7. WordsWest Literary Series: “Humor And The Body: The Perfect Couple” @ C & P Coffee Company
      7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      WordsWest Literary Series Presents:
      “Humor And The Body: The Perfect Couple” with with Jennifer D. Munro and Sarah Steinke

      Favorite Poem by Alison Kennedy of M3 Bodyworks

      Wednesday February 18th, 2015, 7:00 pm
      at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)

      What is the secret sauce of marriage that keeps the engine running after twenty-five “blistered” years? How does raising children translate into “the greatest poem of all”? Come listen to the comical, the poignant, and the absurd tales of two local writers who aren¹t afraid to take a deep breath and tell it as they see it.

      For the February 18th, 2015 edition of WordsWest Literary Series award-winning creative non-fiction writer Jennifer D. Munro and West Seattle poet Sarah Steinke will read from their work which takes a humorous and rhythmic look at the body in all its weird and wild manifestations. This month WordsWest is very grateful for a grant from Poets & Writers that allows us to pay our authors for their time and talent.

      Jennifer D Munro was a Top Ten Finalist in the Erma Bombeck Global Humor Competition. She is a freelance editor whose writing has appeared in numerous publications, including Salon; Defenestration: A Literary Magazine Dedicated to Humor; The Bigger the Better the Tighter the Sweater: 21 Funny Women on Beauty and Body Image; and Best American Erotica. She is the author of The Erotica Writer¹s Husband, humorous stories about sex and the sexes. Jennifer blogs about unconventional motherhood and a quarter-decade marriage to an unconventional man at www.StraightNoChaserMom.com.

      Sarah Steinke is currently developing a monthly workshop that uses both body and written movement to access what later turns into memoir, essay, and poetry. Sarah also teaches yoga in West Seattle. In both practices breath and rhythm coil around the essential–mind, body, spirit–and release what’s no longer needed. Sarah’s work has appeared in the Laurel Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Crab Creek Review, the Other Journal, the Southern California Review, and elsewhere. Her chapbook, Words Could Not Make It More True, is just out from Finishing Line Press.

      Every third Wednesday, 7 pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Folks from local, independent businesses share a favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project.

      WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw. For more information, please contact: wordswestliterary@gmail.com.

We welcome friends, family, Scouts and other interested persons to join us at the Brockey Conference Center at South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) at 5:30 pm. Please register at http://www.seattlebsa.org/new/event-registration

      Questions regarding banquet registration and Troop 284 information can be addressed to: Troop284WestSeattle@gmail.com

      Troop 284 was established in 1915 under the commission of William Barnet and remains chartered to the Boy Scouts of America through the West Seattle Kiwanis. Over the last 100 years, Troop 284 has proudly graduated 102 Eagle Scouts and provided 15,000 hours of service in and around the West Seattle community and beyond.

      Since 1988, Troop 284 has maintained their commitment to the West Seattle Food Bank through the Scouting for Food drives; an annual program where the Scouts collect food donations from the West Seattle community. Over the last 27 years, Troop 284 has collected and donated over 1,000 pounds of food per year to the food bank.

      In keeping with their commitment to service, Troop 284 gathered at the West Seattle Food Bank on Jan. 24 to help assemble and install some much needed storage shelving.

      Their Centennial Service Project was completed with assistance from Walter F. Toth Construction.

      As our Troop transitions to our next 100 years, we hope you will stay in touch and continue to share in our Boy Scout journey. We welcome your support and involvement. For current Troop events, https://www.facebook.com/WSTroop284

      10:00 am – 1:00 pm

      Children’s Academy of Seattle (WSB sponsor), a Spanish-immersion preschool now open in West Seattle, is having an open house on Saturday February 28th, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm:

      The program at Children’s Academy of Seattle supports optimal Spanish-language learning by tying language to a broad range of day-to-day activities. Children learn language best by experiencing it naturally, by being immersed in it.

      The benefits go beyond being bilingual. Exposure to another language, through immersion, provides cultural competency and sensitivity to others. Language immersion takes advantage of a child’s natural ability to rapidly acquire another language. At no time in life is this task easier than in early childhood.

      Children’s Academy of Seattle believes that young children develop to their fullest potential when they are allowed to enjoy life at an unhurried pace. Our program focuses on imagination and creative work and play. Our center offers a rich curriculum and hands-on learning, science, and social skills.

      Our staff has a minimum of five years teaching child development experience. Our high-quality program with experienced teachers ensures success in learning a second language.

      Children’s Academy of Seattle is at 2410 SW Juneau; call 206-466-1121 for information about enrollment, which is open now. You’re also invited to visit the preschool during an open house 10 am-1 pm on Saturday, February 28th.
