Kids’ yoga fundraiser for Children’s Hospital @ Multiple locations
May 27 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.

Memorial Day poppy distribution at WS Thriftway
May 27 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

American Legion Post 160 of West Seattle will be distributing Poppies at the Thriftway in Morgan Junction both Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

On September 27, 1920, the poppy became the official flower of The American Legion family to memorialize the soldiers who fought and died during the war. In 1924, the distribution of poppies became a national program of The American Legion.

Each year, members of The American Legion family, led by the American Legion Auxiliary, distribute poppies with a request that the person receiving the flower make a donation to support the future of veterans, active-duty military personnel and their families with medical and financial needs.

So far this year Post 160 of West Seattle has helped several veterans from the donations received from our poppy distribution in the community.

Litter League volunteer community cleanups @ Various
May 27 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

I hope you will join us this summer in keeping our local West Seattle Morgan Junction clean. To make it easy for everyone to help out, we have scheduled in advance for five clean up mornings to pick up litter!

The dates are all on Sunday mornings from 9:30 – 11:00:

May 27
July 8
August 5
Sept 2
Oct 7

Yes, May 27 and Sept. 2 fall during holiday weekends, but we know that many people will be in town and able to come!

We will meet by the ATM near the Shell station and I will have vests, litter picker-uppers, buckets and bags for everyone. Please bring and wear your gardening gloves!

I will do a brief safety talk at 9:30 – mainly showing the kids what a needle looks like and to alert me if they find one, don’t pick it up.

This is a wonderful opportunity for family volunteering, meaningful for small kids and something they can really help with! So bring your whole family. Or come alone or with a friend. Dogs are welcome if well-behaved and on-leash and you can do the outer parts of MJ to get you and your pup some exercise. The families with young kids focus on the main intersection areas.

This summer, I am arranging with Seattle Light to let me keep the equipment all summer, so it is also available if you want to tackle an area in your immediate neighborhood around MJ (or if anyone wants to clean up along 35th from the Library to Trenton, that area really needs some help). Just let me know!

You can just drop in or you can RSVP, which is helpful to me in terms of how many people to expect and to ensure I have enough support equipment.

Rainy days don’t cancel unless it’s a downpour.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
May 29 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
May 30 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

The band will continue to feature West Seattle guest players such as local blues stalwart Jeff Mason, iconoclastic/world-traveling/multi-instrumentalist, Amy Denio , and the always melodic guitarist, Bruce Barnard. Half of the band lives in West Seattle and the hope is to establish an ongoing venue for local players who deserve to be heard in their own neighborhood.

The Triangular Jazztet features Brian Flanagan on guitar, Orrin Sand on keyboard, Michael Grimes on bass, and Jeff Ferguson on drums. These seasoned musicians have performed a lively mix of original compositions, all-American standards, and popular favorites hundreds of times to appreciative Seattle audiences over the last seven years. Jazz lives in West Seattle!

Save the Genesee-Schmitz Neighborhood Council @ Uptown Espresso
May 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

We’ll be blunt–we don’t want GSNC to go away, but that is what will happen if we don’t find new blood. We think there are still plenty of good reasons to have a council, but after a good long run of being involved for 7+ years, all five of the current Executive Committee volunteers are ready to move on after a short transition period.

We will be hosting an informal coffee chat on Wednesday, May 30, to answer questions and share information with those curious about what it would take to continue the council. We would hate to see our banner, marketing materials, online accounts (like the one used to send this message), and website go to waste, so please consider joining us to meet a few like-minded folks–and bring a friend or neighbor!

When: 7 pm on Wednesday, May 30

Where: Uptown Espresso in the Alaska Junction, 4301 SW Edmunds (look for our sign)

**Interested but can’t make it? Please reply to gsncouncil@gmail.com with your contact information, and we will be in touch.**

Please consider: It might seem like GSNC’s work is done, now that the Genesee Hill School has been built and is operating successfully. However, we have at least a few issues affecting our neighborhood in the very near future–and you might know of others:

Support the Urban Homestead Foundation in their (daunting) quest to raise an additional $250K by December 2018 to purchase the old substation property at 50th & Dakota (across from the school) for a community space. If UHF cannot raise the money, the parcels will be sold for development.

Have group input to Seattle Parks during the public process scheduled for THIS FALL on development plans for the vacant land at 48th & Charlestown. GSNC was instrumental in saving this land for public use.

Have a group voice on the Sound Transit alternatives for bringing light rail to the Alaska Junction.

???

GSNC is also a wonderful group for hosting “get to know your neighbor” events (another Ice Cream Social, anyone?) to build community.

Thanks for considering this opportunity to get to know some of your neighbors and make a difference in our community!

All kids are welcome — not just those from Roxhill.

Our goal is to create a long-lasting piece of art that truly represents the history, culture, and aspirations of the people in the neighborhood who will see it every day. We are excited to work together with Henry to create a mural that reflects our hopes, dreams, and visions for the future while making connections with each other.

The mural will be located at the concrete retaining wall at the corner of 32nd Avenue SW and SW Holden Street, along the street side of Roxhill’s new home at the historic E.C. Hughes Elementary. If you are an adult interested in participating in the mural design or volunteering to help paint the mural, please contact us at friendsofroxhill@gmail.com.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 2 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Loop the Lupe 2018 @ Walt Hundley Playfield
Jun 2 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

The biggest, muddiest, family-friendliest event this summer is happening in just a few weeks: Loop the ‘Lupe, Seattle’s ONLY urban obstacle course race! Loop the ‘Lupe, now in its second year, will take place June 2, 2018, at Walt Hundley Playfield in West Seattle. More than 300 people participated in last year’s inaugural race—from age 5 to 90, from Kirkland to Tacoma. Building on the success of last year’s event, Loop the ‘Lupe organizers are adding a food & drink area, live music, and a beer garden to accommodate the more than 500 participants expected.

“Everyone wanted to ‘get in the Loop’ last year, and I think that’s because we really had something to offer people of all ages, and something runners or walkers of all skill levels could enjoy,” says Race Director Brian Callanan. Loop the ‘Lupe features a 1K “loop” around Walt Hundley Playfield, where participants race under, over, and through seven obstacles (two new ones added in 2018), including a mud pit, walls, “Squirtgun Alley,” and more. Loop the ‘Lupe has four options to get the whole family involved in a fun day at the park:

Obstacle Course: For ninja warriors who think their skills are up to the task, the Obstacle Course 5K (five loops) begins at 11 a.m.

5K Family Fun Run/Walk: Not ready for the obstacles? No problem! You can pass them by and make this into a family fun run/walk, starting at 11:45 a.m.

Senior Saunter: The “Saunter” is for walkers age 65+ looking for a flat, no-obstacles walk. The turf soccer field at the park is the “race” course. People used their rolling walkers at this event in 2017, so come see how many laps you can complete in 20 minutes! Starts at 12:15 p.m.

Youth Dash: Do you have a child under 8 years old? They can join in the fun, too, by taking one loop around the course (parental help encouraged). The fun begins at 1 p.m.!

Proceeds from Loop the ‘Lupe support the Walmesley Center at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish. The Center has been one of the area’s most utilized facilities for sports and social outreach work since opening in 2012:

More than 24,000 kids/family members participating in athletic programs
More than 10,000 free community meals given to those in need
Annual blood drives/flu shot clinics
Vacation Bible Camps, weddings, cultural events, and more!

Loop the ‘Lupe is teaming up with professional race organizer Fizz Events (SeaFair Triathlon, Fiesta 5K Olé!, & more) to take this event to the next level. “It’s great to be part of a growing event like this that involves so much community support,” says Fizz Events owner Jared Loranger. “So, bring the family and GET IN THE LOOP!”

Thanks to the community support of Sanislo Elementary’s auction last year, we kicked our $5,000 goal to the curb and raised $15,000!

Let’s do it again!

Our annual auction is just around the corner and we hope you can join us once again in supporting educational equity.

Details:

You can reserve your tickets online, or, if you can’t make it but would like to donate, you can do that through the link below as well.

Donations to our auction make a significant impact in the education of our kids. With over 70% of our families living in poverty, our school community simply cannot raise these essential funds alone. We hope to see you there!

West Seattle Meaningful Movies: ‘Death by Design’ @ Neighborhood House High Point
Jun 2 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Saturday, June 2
Sustainable West Seattle, and the West Seattle Meaningful Movies, presents

Death by Design
The Dirty Secret of Our Digital Addiction

Many of us use our digital devices to promote the greater good. But there is a downside to the digital revolution. This movie brings to light the environmental, economic, and social-justice failures of our favorite products.

By 2020, four billion people will own personal computers, five billion will own mobile phones, and all industries will be computerized. Are we being duped by an industry that has a death-by-design plan? Are we reaching the point where we have to decide between consumerism and sustainability?

73 minutes
Directed by Sue Williams, 2016

Kids’ yoga fundraiser for Children’s Hospital @ Multiple locations
Jun 3 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

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.

Check the Chip @ Lien Animal Clinic
Jun 3 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The care team at Lien Animal Clinic is reminding all pet owners in West Seattle that on Sunday, June 3rd they will be hosting a Check the Chip Event, where pet owners are encouraged to check and update the contact information registered with their pet’s microchip or have one inserted into a pet that is not yet protected. Lien Animal Clinic is hosting this event in an effort to ensure more happy endings for lost or stolen pets. This year, with support from HomeAgain, there’s a video reinforcing the importance of registering pet microchips and keeping that information up to date.

“We love stories of pets and their families being reunited after they have been missing for sometimes just a short while or in some cases days,” said Daphney, a team member at Lien. These stories would not have a happy ending, if these pets were never microchipped or if the microchip contained inaccurate or out-of-date information.

Microchips greatly increase the chances that you’ll get your pets back if they become lost or stolen, but a microchip only works if its registration information is accurate.

Our team will be available on Sunday, June 3rd from 2-4 pm:

· Check your pets chip and enrollment status tell the owner what information is contained on the microchip; and

· Microchip pets who are without

· Provide tours of the practice

We will have pizza, beverages and raffle prizes! It’ll be a woofin’ good time, you won’t want to hiss it!

To learn more about microchips and our Check the Chip Event, call us at 206-932-1133 or visit the Home Again website at www.homeagain.com/microchipping.html

Jun 3 @ 3:00 pm

Encores: The Seattle Metropolitan Singers Spring Concert

The director of the Seattle Metropolitan Singers, John Gulhaugen, is retiring after 12 years of leading this group of amateur women singers. John has spent much of his life tied to music – from earning a BA in Music from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, to singing with the Seattle Opera Chorus, to directing the music at Peace Lutheran Church in West Seattle, to challenging the Seattle Metropolitan Singers to improve the depth and breadth of their singing. John plans to relax during his free evenings, and maybe take up singing in a group for himself.

The concert program “Encores” will include songs from the past 12 years of concerts, including such pieces as “A Girl’s Garden,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” “Hotaru Koi,” and “The Storm is Passing Over.”

At this concert, the Seattle Metropolitan Singers will also introduce the incoming director of the group.

Please join the Seattle Metropolitan Singers for their annual spring concert on Sunday, June 3rd, at 3:00 p.m. The performance will be held at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church, 3050 California Ave SW. A farewell reception will be held after the concert.

Highway 99 tunnel toll feedback meeting in West Seattle @ High Point Community Center
Jun 5 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The public process of setting toll rates for the State Route 99 tunnel is starting and the Washington State Transportation Commission is seeking public comment on toll rate options under consideration. Interested persons can provide comments to the commission at upcoming public meetings in Seattle or they can provide comments electronically …

The commission has spent more than a year studying and assessing all aspects of tolling the SR 99 tunnel, including various toll rate levels, possible toll exemptions, estimated traffic diversion to city streets, and effects of tolling on freight movement. Based upon this analysis, the commission has developed three possible toll rate options, on which it now wants the public to weigh in.

The Legislature made the decision to toll the tunnel in 2012 (RCW 47.56.862). The commission is charged with making sure tolls generate enough revenue to cover specific costs as required under the law, including toll operations, maintenance, and debt payments associated with the construction of the tunnel. In 2018, the Legislature directed that initial toll rates will not cover future repair and replacement costs, such as for the roadway and ventilation systems for the SR 99 tunnel. Proposed future toll rate increases would need to be re-evaluated if the Legislature determines these costs should be covered by toll revenue.

Toll Rate Options

The three toll rate options currently under consideration would be in effect from when tolling begins in 2019 through at least June 2020:

Option A:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.25.
There are four different toll rates over six time periods on weekdays.
Beginning in July 2022, toll rates increase 3 percent, every three years for all days of the week.

Option B:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.
There are four different toll rates over eight time periods on weekdays.
Beginning in July 2020, there will be annual toll rate increases of 3.5 percent for five years that will apply to the weekday rates only.

Option C:

Toll rates range from $1.50 – $2.25 during peak travel times and $1 overnight.
The midday toll rate is $1.25.
There are five different toll rates over seven time periods on weekdays.
There are no toll rate increases during first five years of tolling. Then there are three toll rate increases of five percent each, taking place in July of 2024, 2029, and 2034, for all days of the week.

Public Comment Opportunities

The commission will hold public input meetings in early June in Seattle to gather comments on the three toll-rate options under consideration. The meetings are as follows:

(one in West Seattle)

· Tuesday, June 5

5:30 – 6:30 p.m.: Open house on tunnel project and tolling

6:30 – 8 p.m.: Public input meeting on tolling options

High Point Community Center, Multipurpose Room
6920 34th Ave. SW, Seattle

More information on the tolling options under consideration, and additional ways the public can comment, can be found on the commission’s web site under “pending actions” at: http://wstc.wa.gov/ The Transportation Commission is taking public comment on these tolling options until July 17. An official proposal will be announced in mid-July 2018, followed by an additional public comment period before toll rates are finalized in fall 2018.

Jun 9 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

From Seattle Parks and Recreation:

The sun is emerging from behind the clouds, the weather is getting warmer, and summer is just around the corner. Soon, many community members will be drawn to pools, beaches, and water sports across the region. And as water recreation increases, water safety becomes especially important. According to the Center for Disease Control, over 4,000 people drown each year in the United States, and among children between the ages of 1 and 14, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death.

Life jackets save lives, and Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is partnering with Seattle Children’s Hospital, the National Safe Boating Council, and Mustang Survival to host low-cost life jacket sales at pool locations across Seattle. Attend one of six life jacket sales to buy discounted life jackets for you and your family. Infant and youth size life jackets are $20, adult sizes are $30, and families who qualify for SPR scholarships pay $10 for any life jacket size.

Exhibit opening for ‘Fired Up: Neighborhood Fire Stations on the Duwamish Peninsula’ @ Log House Museum
Jun 9 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Fired Up: Neighborhood Fire Stations on the Duwamish Peninsula

Join the Southwest Seattle Historical Society at the Log House Museum on June 9th from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm for the grand opening of their latest exhibit, Fired Up: Neighborhood Fire Stations on the Duwamish Peninsula. Learn about the history of our fire stations, and hear about how firefighters work even today to keep us safe.

Neighborhoods and fire stations grow up together. The relationship of a neighborhood to the fire station that protects it is one of trust, respect, and appreciation. To know that help will arrive quickly in the event of a fire or an injury is reassuring and gives comfort.

Our appreciation for our neighborhood fire station and the firefighters within is something that transcends time and age. It is very easy to share a child’s excitement at seeing the fire trucks roar down the street, because it is something that always stays with us. We never outgrow our enthusiasm or our appreciation for our local firefighters.

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society preserves and shares the stories of the Duwamish Peninsula. We do so through exhibits and the Log House Museum, programs throughout the community, and caring for a collection of over 14,000 historical artifacts and archives.

Grand Opening:

Saturday, June 9th

Author Presentation and Book Signing: Schurman Rock: A History & Guide @ Camp Long Lodge
Jun 9 @ 4:00 pm

Author Presentation and Book Signing: Schurman Rock: A History & Guide
June 9, 2018 4 pm, Camp Long Lodge
FREE

Part history, part biography, part climbing guide, Schurman Rock: A History & Guide describes the design and construction of Schurman Rock, the world’s first artificial climbing wall, built in 1938-39 at Camp Long in Seattle, Washington. The book includes a history of the creation of Camp Long by by William G. Long, a Superior Court judge, who seized the opportunity to turn an unused 68-acre tract of swampy forest land into a wilderness camp for youth, and a biography of Clark Schurman, a Scoutmaster and Chief Climbing Guide at Mount Rainier, who envisioned and then built his “dream rock” to provide a place to teach mountaineering skills to youth. Thousands of kids and adults, including Fred Beckey and Jim and Lou Whittaker, learned to climb on Schurman Rock over the past 80 years. In 1938, Schurman published an article describing 22 routes on the rock–“short bits” as he called them. This book expands on this with a guide to several boulder problems on the rock. Includes many historic photos and a foreword by Pacific Northwest climbing legend Jim Whittaker.

Clark Schurman’s dream was to build a human-made mountain incorporating every potential rock climbing problem into its design. After taking a winter to make a clay model of the rock, Schurman worked very closely with the Works Progress Administration workers to create his dream rock. It took two years to complete the 20-foot high, erratically shaped climbing rock. Schurman called it Monitor Rock after its intended purpose to “warn, remind, advise and instruct.” After Schurman’s death in 1955 the rock was renamed “Schurman Rock” to honor Clark Schurman’s contribution to Camp Long and mountaineering.

The Esoterics in concert @ Holy Rosary
Jun 9 @ 8:00 pm

It was 25 years ago, in June of 1993, that The Esoterics debuted in Seattle as a hybrid = arts organization – an a cappella choral ensemble that also focused on new, undiscovered, and under-performed music. Back then, there were very few choruses devoted entirely to unaccompanied music, and even fewer new music ensembles that performed choral music. A quarter of a century later, The Esoterics is regarded – through its competition, tours, and recordings – as one of the most excellent choral ensembles devoted to new music in the world, and as a community that has flourished in the niche of this “esoteric” art form.

This June, The Esoterics will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a program of modern motets, in keeping with the theme of this year: saecula sacrorum, or “secular versions of sacred forms.” This program will explore the motet, not only as the most virtuosic and architectural form of ancient choral music, but also for the “play on words” so common in its construction.

This program will feature two “choral cathedrals” composed by Eric Banks: Etternalmente vive [Eternally alive] and Förklaring [Elucidation], setting poems in Italian and Swedish by Michelangelo Buonarroti and Karin Boye. It will also include two new cycles by the Finnish composer Jaakko Mäntyjärvi: Hommage à Edith (setting three verses by the Finland Swedish poet Edith Södergran), and Seven last words, a hilarious rendering of the last seven entries in the Century Dictionary (1910), sung as if in a spelling bee, with several intermittent limericks.

The ensemble is also excited to perform the world premiere of the choral version of Lisa Bielawa’s Machina mundi, a work for digitally processed voices and live chorus that traces various philosophical texts that grapple with the origin of the universe. The group is also honored to perform the world premiere of Joshua Fishbein’s Of the ages, a triptych on the various stages of life, setting texts of Elizabeth Pennell, Laurence Alma-Tadema, and William Butler Yeats. Both Lisa and Josh will be joining us for our anniversary concert weekend!

Finally, The Esoterics will reprise one of its favorite works, Richard Strauss’ inimitable Deutsche Motette. One of the most virtuosic, cathartic, and joyful pieces in the choral repertory, Strauss’ pyrotechnic setting of Friedrich Rückert’s poem was written on a dare from the Vienna Opera Chorus in 1913. It is so rarely performed, and truly not to be missed!

Please join us as we celebrate 25 years of choral community!

(local performance)

General admission ticket prices are $25 at the door ($22 in advance).

Caroline Rose, live in-store – free, all ages @ Easy Street Records
Jun 11 @ 7:00 pm

At Easy Street Records in The Junction, 7 pm:

“Clearly a woman who knows what she wants to say and how to say it, Caroline Rose lets it all fly on her new oddball pop record, Loner. The album is as every bit inviting as it is delightfully sharp-tongued and quick-witted. Its modern pop production pairs excellently with Rose’s 90’s Girl Power energy. It’s satirical, yet sincere.” – Ian Bremner, OldRookie.com

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 13 all-day

(Note:  Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”
