    2. Notes from the Job Search, West Seattle group @ C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

This preacher’s daughter makes delicate, ambient folk music, and for Radio Sky she adds a pair of musicians, Kevin Wood and Bob Congleton, who add gentle bass lines and well-placed guitar swells to provide just the right amount of texture.

      The West Seattle Helpline supports over 3,500 residents each year by providing one-time emergency financial assistance. This may be due to unemployment, health crisis, or a time of transition. We also refer our neighbors to community resources that may help them get back on their feet. For more than 24 years the West Seattle Helpline has assisted the working poor in West Seattle. Despite these efforts, we must turn away families every month and the need continues to rise.

      The 4th Annual Fall Fundraiser Dinner will help families meet basic needs by providing for rent and utility assistance, clothing and bus tickets. By joining us, you will directly impact the lives of those less fortunate in our community. Your contribution will directly support local families in need.

      The clean-up on November 2nd went so well that we will spend another two hours this Saturday to finish the job! Please join Dave Winters of Swedish Automotive (WSB sponsor) for another impromptu clean up under the West Seattle Bridge! The bike path from the bottom of Avalon Way near Luna Park Café heading east alongside and under the bridge toward downtown was greatly improved two weeks ago.

Dave will be there with the old, yellow Swedish Automotive Van, garbage cans and bags from 9 to 11 am this Saturday, November 16th. His goal is to clean the area near the Chelan Café working back toward West Seattle and the area of the last cleanup.

      If you find yourself with time and desire to help this Saturday, please stop by with gloves, rakes and brooms, and we’ll get it cleaned up! Look for the yellow Swedish Automotive van parked under the West Seattle Bridge just west (toward Avalon & Admiral) of the Chelan Cafe. Let’s clean up Seattle! Hope to see you there!

      Thank you to everyone who turned out to help on Saturday, 11/2/13. Thank you Cafe Osita for providing us with warm refreshments.

      Everyone’s cheerful and enthusiastic efforts were appreciated. 1120 lbs of trash and clean green hauled to the dump on 11/2/13!

      10:00 am – 12:00 pm

      Longfellow Creek Watershed Walk
      When: Saturday, November 16th, 10 am to noon
      Where: Meet at corner of 26th Ave SW and SW Yancy Street (1 block west of Delridge, 1 block south of Andover) – Bus stop at Delridge & Andover for Metro Routes 50, 120, and 125; nearby signs/trees for locking up bikes, parking available along 26th Ave SW and SW Andover Street.

      What: Join Sustainable West Seattle for an urban hike through one of Seattle’s most beautiful watershed environments. You are invited on a hike through one of Seattle’s most beautiful watershed environments – Longfellow Creek. This walk will demonstrate how Seattle residents’ everyday activities can impact the natural environment in their own backyards, and what everyone can do to help preserve the health of our urban watersheds. Feet First Walking Ambassadors Bryan Fiedorczyk and Timothy Lowry will lead an urban hike through the Longfellow Creek Watershed. The creek drains almost 3000 acres of West Seattle and is one of only four waterways left in Seattle that flows freely year-round. This family-friendly walk is estimated to be between 2 to 3 miles at a slow to moderate pace.

      While walking the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail, you will see wetlands, native meadows, conifer forests, a beaver dam and large-scale public art installations. Along the trail there will be examples of areas highly modified by development, the effects of runoff from rain and stormwater, restoration efforts, and sites featuring low impact development and green infrastructure techniques such as rain gardens.

      We’ll start at trailhead northeast of Dragonfly Pavilion and follow the trail south across the Salmon Bone bridge, and down 26th Ave SW past Greg Davis Park and the Brandon Street Natural Area (King Conservation District highlights of restoration/volunteer efforts) towards the Delridge Natural Area (Delridge & Graham). We’ll turn around after about an hour of walking – at Juneau, we’ll follow 25th Ave SW north past a cluster of residential rain gardens near Brandon through Delridge Playfield and back along the trail to the starting point.

      The Watershed Walk is co-sponsored by Sustainable West Seattle and the King Conservation District. More details here.

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

      Christmas Trees- Starting at 11 am the weekend before Thanksgiving and on thru till the weekend before Christmas we will sell a variety of sizes and kinds of cut and live Christmas trees grown locally and sustainably. Tabletop and x-tall trees available too. We can special order anything you’d like!

      Hand-Made Wreaths and Garland- From the base to the dried flowers, everything was done in Mardi’s workshop to offer you a truly local product that is totally recyclable at the end of the season. In October we dried rose hips, hydrangea, bay leaves, lichen, and much more to grace the hand bent grape vine and evergreen bases. Holly, cedar, camellia, pine, and fir will all be harvested right before construction to ensure a vibrant decoration all through the holidays! I have also added a few artsy ones using shells from the beach, succulents and air plants!

      Garland available by custom order. Figure out how many feet you need and we will go from there. Check out a few of our samples for ideas. Or book your group for a garland and hot toddy party! Cocoa for the kids! Parties starting at $30 per adult.

      Holiday Gift Wrapping- Bring your gifts, fill out an inventory list and sign it, and forget about the rest! We will wrap each one of your gifts with care and creativity. All of the gifts are kept safe and dry and returned to you via scheduled delivery within the next two business days. Prices depend on size of gift box being wrapped.

      Aaron Daniel: One Man Banned performs live with special guest Scott Haynes at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) 9:30 pm, Friday November 22nd:

      AARON DANIEL: ONE MAN BANNED is hands down one of the most requested performers we get. Aaron is one of the most unique and accomplished guitarists you’ll ever see (besides being a heckuva vocalist), and uses on-the-spot created loops to form a backing “band” for him to play over. He will hypnotize you with this approach. FYI: Yes, this is the same Aaron Daniel who fronts the always sold-out Seattle Rock Orchestra shows that play at The Moore Theatre.

Holly, cedar, camellia, pine, and fir will all be harvested right before construction to ensure a vibrant decoration all through the holidays! I have also added a few artsy ones using shells from the beach, succulents and air plants!

      Holiday Gift Wrapping- Bring your gifts, fill out an inventory list and sign it, and forget about the rest! We will wrap each one of your gifts with care and creativity. All of the gifts are kept safe and dry and returned to you via scheduled delivery within the next two business days. Prices depend on size of gift box being wrapped.

    1. Notes from the Job Search, West Seattle group @ C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

      Saturday November 30, Sarah Loertscher trunk show, launch, and sale, 10 am–5 pm at Click! Design that Fits (WSB sponsor).

      West Seattle jewelry artist Sarah Loertscher unveils two new jewelry collections, Ridgeline and Parallels, in a special launch event at Click! on Saturday November 30th, 10 am–5 pm. To celebrate Small Business Saturday the entire collection of Sarah’s work will be 20% off during the event only.

      Ridgeline is an exploration of the simpler side – both of adornment and of form. This collection started as a re-creation of Loertscher’s very first production design, updated with bolder lines and a few mandatory facets. Ridgeline is a grouping of basics – rings, earrings, and bracelets – that are modern, simple, and easy to live in.

      Parallels is both the same and yet the opposite: taking the simple – in this instance, the outline of the rectangle – and repeating this outline into moving forms. Loertscher’s fascination with structure stems from the way light interacts with shifting planes of material. These pieces explore this fascination, moving Loertscher’s work into moveable, cascading jewels.

      West Seattle Food Bank and NW Parkinson’s Foundation to Benefit from Lighting Ceremony at West Seattle Lights

      On Saturday, November 30th, at 7:00 pm, West Seattle Lights will have their 5th Annual Lighting Ceremony at the home of Corey and Taylor Helmstetler at 3908 SW Charlestown. The public is invited free of charge, but attendees are asked to bring a food or cash donation for either West Seattle Food Bank or NW Parkinson’s Foundation.

      This year the Helmstetler Christmas Spectacular will have a NEW Master Of Ceremonies…a talking and singing 8 Foot Tall Snowman!!! And right now we are having a contest to name our snowman. Contest details and rules can be found at http://westseattlelights.com/ and YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=TQFvmPplvVc

      Last year West Seattle Lights collected nearly 1100 lbs of food for the West Seattle Food Bank and over $2500 for both the Food Bank and NW Parkinson’s Foundation.

      Jim Winder, the creator and brains behind West Seattle Lights said, “I’m looking forward to having our new Master Of Ceremonies. We will also have a few other new features in our display that I am sure will delight the kid in all of us. Am also looking forward to another banner year of giving by our giving friends and neighbors of West Seattle and surrounding communities that will benefit our charities and bring smiles to all those who attend”.

      The Lighting Ceremony begins at 7 pm on Saturday, November 30th at 3908 SW Charlestown in West Seattle. We hope to also have a special guest, as we have had Zach Lystedt, Zach Scott (sounders) and Judy Pancoast (Grammy Nominee) in years past.

    4. Notes from the Job Search, West Seattle group @ C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

      Christmas Trees- Starting at 11 am the weekend before Thanksgiving and on thru till the weekend before Christmas we will sell a variety of sizes and kinds of cut and live Christmas trees grown locally and sustainably. Tabletop and x-tall trees available too. We can special order anything you’d like!

      Hand-Made Wreaths and Garland- From the base to the dried flowers, everything was done in Mardi’s workshop to offer you a truly local product that is totally recyclable at the end of the season.

Holly, cedar, camellia, pine, and fir will all be harvested right before construction to ensure a vibrant decoration all through the holidays! I have also added a few artsy ones using shells from the beach, succulents and air plants!

      Garland available by custom order. Figure out how many feet you need and we will go from there. Check out a few of our samples for ideas. Or book your group for a garland and hot toddy party! Cocoa for the kids! Parties starting at $30 per adult.

      Holiday Gift Wrapping- Bring your gifts, fill out an inventory list and sign it, and forget about the rest! We will wrap each one of your gifts with care and creativity.

Tabletop and x-tall trees available too. We can special order anything you’d like!

      Hand-Made Wreaths and Garland- From the base to the dried flowers, everything was done in Mardi’s workshop to offer you a truly local product that is totally recyclable at the end of the season. In October we dried rose hips, hydrangea, bay leaves, lichen, and much more to grace the hand bent grape vine and evergreen bases. Holly, cedar, camellia, pine, and fir will all be harvested right before construction to ensure a vibrant decoration all through the holidays! I have also added a few artsy ones using shells from the beach, succulents and air plants!

      Garland available by custom order. Figure out how many feet you need and we will go from there. Check out a few of our samples for ideas. Or book your group for a garland and hot toddy party! Cocoa for the kids! Parties starting at $30 per adult.

      Holiday Gift Wrapping- Bring your gifts, fill out an inventory list and sign it, and forget about the rest! We will wrap each one of your gifts with care and creativity. All of the gifts are kept safe and dry and returned to you via scheduled delivery within the next two business days. Prices depend on size of gift box being wrapped.

    8. WS Tool Library’s Festivus fundraiser gala @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
      6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

      After nearly 3-1/2 years of providing free tools, advice and workshop space to the community on a donation basis, the West Seattle Tool Library is holding its first fundraiser and inclusive “Festivus” party.

      Everyone is welcome. No cover charge.

      The fundraiser gala, which will also serve as Sustainable West Seattle’s annual winter holiday party, will be held Friday, Dec. 6, from 6:00 to 9:30 pm. Any funds raised will go to the maintenance of tool library operations, as well as potential enhancements such as extended hours and more classes, depending on the amount raised.

      To be held at the dance studio at Youngstown Cultural Arts center, the fundraiser is being billed as a Festivus in a nod to a classic Seinfeld episode, with beer, wine, soft drinks, food, music, a silent auction, kids activities and a used tool sale.

      In addition, discounts will be offered on new and renewing tool library memberships (normally a suggested $40 a year). And members who have tool library items that they’ve been meaning to return will be offered amnesty for any returned tools. No fines and no questions asked!

      Donations and volunteer help for the fundraiser are still needed. If you are an individual or business with a item you’d like to donate for the silent auction please contact Christy True at christytrue@gmail.com. Food and beverage donations also welcome. Donors will be recognized in a public way at the event.

      Anyone who would like to volunteer to help at the event should e-mail kimberly@sustainablewestseattle.org

      Since opening in the summer of 2010, the West Seattle Tool Library has built an inventory of more than 1,500 tools, signed up more than 1,000 members, offered many classes and served as the home of the Fixers Collective and Ask an Expert night. It has been a model to many other tool libraries that have popped up in the Puget Sound region and beyond and received positive media attention as an example of the type of sharing economy projects needed to make the world more sustainable. It is a nonprofit project of Sustainable West Seattle. You can learn more and check out our inventory at wstoollibrary.org

    9. Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Radio Play @ Kenyon Hall
      7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

      Join TNP this holiday season for Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Radio Play. The radio play is based on the holiday movie favorite of the same name and will be presented as a live 1940′s radio broadcast. Miracle on 34th Street tells the timeless story of an old man who calls himself Kris Kringle and is hired as the Macy’s department store Santa. His claim to be the real Santa Claus becomes a court case and a young child’s belief could make all the difference. “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”

      Showing December 6, 7, 13 and 14 at 7:30 and December 8 and 15 at 3:00 pm at Kenyon Hall, 7904 35th Ave SW. Tickets are $12 for students and seniors and $15 for adults and can be purchased at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/509548 or an hour before show times at the venue box office.

      7:30 pm – 9:45 pm

      The Musica Sacra Chamber Chorale December concert series will be performed on Friday, Dec 6th, 7:30 pm at Holy Rosary Catholic Church in West Seattle.

      The Musica Sacra Chamber Chorale’s 2013 December concert series explores The Mystery of Christmas. It will be an opportunity to sit back, absorb and ponder the beauty and wonder of the season—a true oasis of musical reflection during the holidays.

      Musica Sacra Chamber Chorale Ticket Information
      Season tickets range in price from $32 to $36.
      Single tickets purchased in advance at our website range in price from $18 to $20. Single tickets purchased at the door range in price from $22 to $25. For more information contact Musica Sacra Chamber Chorale at (425) 277-0809 or consult the website at www.musicasacrachamberchorale.com

      More from the news release:

      The concert opens with a series of selections that focuses specifically on the mysteries surrounding Christmas including Gustav Schrek’s Entrance Scene from his Advent Motet, Morten Lauridsen’s O Magnum Mysterium (O Great Mystery), and Abbey Bettinas Cedit, Hyems (Now, Winter).

      We then explore the mystery of the virgin birth with Arvo Pärt’s Magnificat coupled with a Nunc Dimittis from the Rachmaninoff Vespers (this pairing is typically done in the Anglican service). This segment ends with a beautiful setting of the Ave Maria by the Basque composer Javier Busto.

      There has always been mystery associated with the stars in the heavens and the Christmas season. Maestro Ingalls has selected two selections from dissimilar backgrounds that explore this wonderment to close the first half of the program: Randall Thompson’s Choose Something like a Star from Frostiana and Nancy Wertch’s setting of When You Wish Upon a Star.

      In the second half of our concert we explore the mystery surrounding the angels, the music in the air and candles— specifically as they manifest themselves within the Hannakah tradition. Selections include Calm on the Listening Ear of Night (Dickau), Musica Dei Donum (Rutter) and Haneirot Halalu (Applebaum). Our concert comes to a close with music focusing on the mystery of the Savior’s birth including Lully, Lulla, Thou Little Tiny Child Op.25b of Kenneth Leighton and In Silent Night by Mitchell Southall, recently recorded by the Chorale.

    1. West Seattle Kiwanis community pancake breakfast @ Alki Masonic Hall
      7:00 am – 12:00 pm

      Members of Kiwanis West Seattle are selling tickets for the 67th annual West Seattle Community Pancake Breakfast, scheduled for Saturday, December 7th at the Alki Masonic Building, located at 4736 40th Ave. S.W. The pancakes will be hot off the griddle from 7 am and 11 am accompanied by orange juice, coffee and Husky Deli’s premier ham. As always, the proceeds go toward funding the club’s community service activities, especially those focused on children and teens.

      This year’s breakfast has a special emphasis. Proceeds will help fund the Kiwanis sponsored Key Clubs at West Seattle, Seattle Lutheran and Chief Sealth High Schools. Over the last few years, membership in our sponsored Key Clubs has exploded and we now mentor over 250 local high school students in the Key Club Program. Key Club educates students on the importance of serving others, as well as teaching valuable leadership skills.

      The breakfast will also provide an opportunity for patrons to donate new, unwrapped “Toys for Tots.” Marine reservists will be on hand to accept the toys. Children to 10, accompanied by an adult, will be offered a free photo with Santa. Besides pancakes, you will find a variety of gifts for sale including charming handmade ornaments, wreaths, Cookie Lee jewelry, plus many other holiday gifts.

      Adult ticket donations are $8 before December 7th ($10 at the door) and kids under 10 eat free. Mail orders may be sent to PO Box 16128, Seattle, WA 98116. Phone inquiries will be received at 206-920-3900, or stop by the Kiwanis tent at the West Seattle Farmers Market each Sunday. Kiwanis members will be collecting new unwrapped “Toys for Tots” at the next two Farmers Markets in West Seattle, for those who can’t make the pancake breakfast but still would like to contribute.

      The West Seattle Kiwanis is one of the first service clubs established
      in West Seattle, and was chartered in 1929.

      Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the
      world, one child and one community at a time. The Kiwanis Club of West
      Seattle offers you the opportunity to share your experience, knowledge,
      and time in service to the community. Membership is open to all men and
      women who possess a genuine interest in serving the community.

      Christmas Trees- Starting at 11 am the weekend before Thanksgiving and on thru till the weekend before Christmas we will sell a variety of sizes and kinds of cut and live Christmas trees grown locally and sustainably. Tabletop and x-tall trees available too. We can special order anything you’d like!

      Hand-Made Wreaths and Garland- From the base to the dried flowers, everything was done in Mardi’s workshop to offer you a truly local product that is totally recyclable at the end of the season. In October we dried rose hips, hydrangea, bay leaves, lichen, and much more to grace the hand bent grape vine and evergreen bases. Holly, cedar, camellia, pine, and fir will all be harvested right before construction to ensure a vibrant decoration all through the holidays! I have also added a few artsy ones using shells from the beach, succulents and air plants!

      Garland available by custom order. Figure out how many feet you need and we will go from there. Check out a few of our samples for ideas. Or book your group for a garland and hot toddy party! Cocoa for the kids! Parties starting at $30 per adult.

      Holiday Gift Wrapping- Bring your gifts, fill out an inventory list and sign it, and forget about the rest! We will wrap each one of your gifts with care and creativity. All of the gifts are kept safe and dry and returned to you via scheduled delivery within the next two business days. Prices depend on size of gift box being wrapped.

      Join TNP this holiday season for Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Radio Play. The radio play is based on the holiday movie favorite of the same name and will be presented as a live 1940′s radio broadcast. Miracle on 34th Street tells the timeless story of an old man who calls himself Kris Kringle and is hired as the Macy’s department store Santa. His claim to be the real Santa Claus becomes a court case and a young child’s belief could make all the difference. “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”

      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.
