Explore the beach at low tide! @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
May 24 @ 10:00 am – 1:30 pm

Join trained volunteer Beach Naturalists at Lincoln Park and South Alki/Constellation Park on the following dates this year for a free guided exploration at very low tide (please note the specific times for each day.) No reservations necessary; just look for signs at the beaches listed on the dates and hours below. Please note: low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.

Search for tidepool animals during some of the best low tides of the year. Learn a bit of beach ecology and which animal is the most colorful – a sea star, a sea anemone, or a sea slug. Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Not only will you witness the Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, but you’ll also see advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beach goers – Beach Naturalists.

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 and enjoy area beaches this summer. Be sure to visit a local beach this summer and meet the Beach Naturalists. They know their beaches. They can help you enjoy the beach without harming it. They can tell you what sea stars eat, why barnacles stand on their heads and how moon snails lay their eggs. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our Beach Naturalists transfers directly to the public-it’s a wonderful infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, Community Outreach 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.”

Public meeting: Fauntleroy Property Cove Park Addition @ The Hall at Fauntleroy
May 24 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to learn about the opportunity, and first step in a process, to expand Cove Park through a land swap with King County. This property, 8923 Fauntleroy Way SW, with 35 feet of beach front property, is immediately to the north of Cove Park in West Seattle, which lies just to the north of the Fauntleroy Ferry dock. Seattle Parks and Recreation planner, Chip Nevins, will present the proposed project, answer questions and gather community input about the proposed trade.

In 2015 King County Wastewater Treatment Division finished the upgrade to the Barton Pump Station, next to the Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal, to accommodate West Seattle’s growing population. As part of the construction of the new pump station, King County acquired the property just to the north of SW Barton Street, which was used as their temporary construction offices. Now that the project is finished, King County no longer needs the property and is proposing to trade it to the City in exchange for the vacation of the portion of the SW Barton Street right-of-way where the pump station is constructed.

Chip Nevins presented this idea to the Fauntleroy Community Association in April. Seattle Parks and Recreation encourages the community to come to this meeting and learn about the proposal.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

King County has received funding to establish a new community coalition centered around Chief Sealth High School and Denny Middle School to prevent youth substance abuse.

This coalition will bring together people representing different community sectors to gather data and assess community needs and resources. The coalition will create a strategic plan that outlines their vision for how this funding should be used in a way that aligns with the Community Prevention and Wellness Initiative (CPWI) model, but is specific and targeted to their community. Once the plan is accepted, the coalition will determine the appropriate prevention strategies for their community and ensure that these strategies are effectively implemented.

I would like to cordially invite you all to attend and participate in South West Seattle’s first Community Prevention & Wellness Initiative Coalition Meeting!

Death of a Salesman tells the story of the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness.

Ancient Local Plant and Animal Community Recovery Workshop and Tour @ Orchard St Ravine
May 28 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Join Naturalist Stewart Wechsler (of Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures) on Saturday, May 28th, 10:00 am–2:00 pm for an Ancient Local Plant and Animal Community Recovery Workshop and Tour:

Learn Stewart’s methods, developed over the last 20 years, how best to help the wealth of the ancient pre-European local ecological community grow back. Unlike much of what is called “restoration”, Stewart’s methods start with the principle that “mother knows best”, with the mother plants and mother nature knowing best when and where to grow their offspring, and letting them do most of the planting, while we give them a helping hand to re-spread over the land that, before European contact, they had completely covered in a great wealth of diversity. We will start in Stewart’s Orchard St Ravine mini-prairie, where Stewart has helped the local prairie community make a come-back, then head to Lincoln Park, where the ancient local plant community had already had Seattle’s greatest remaining natural diversity, and where Stewart has helped it maintain and regain some of its pre-European rich diversity and surface coverage.

$25 or any contribution.

Death of a Salesman @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
May 29 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Death of a Salesman
by Arthur Miller

April 28 – May 29, 2016

Death of a Salesman tells the story of the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.

*The Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist was established in West Seattle in 1892, for a “broad-minded and liberal churchmanship, which should not only develop the spiritual side of life, but also encourage the social welfare in the most thoughtful and progressive minds of this community.” Today, the people of St. John’s continue to strive to live into this statement of purpose through such programs as our Just Garden Project to provide fresh produce for area food banks, feeding the hungry at Nicklesville and with the Community Meals program and building for the educational needs of students in the Mulundi Village in Kenya. Sunday worship is at 8:00 and 10:15 am, with Christian Formation classes at 10:00 am. We invite you and all whom you love, to “Come as you are!

We have a large outreach to the homeless population of West Seattle… Sunday service is 6 PM held in the fellowship of our dear friends at St. John The Baptist Episcopal Church – enter through the doors on the southeast corner of 42nd Ave & SW Hanford SW. 206/890-8110.

June 12th will mark the end of 45 years of service and vocational ministry for Dr. Paul R. Smith of West Seattle. He has been the senior pastor at West Side Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) since 1981, when he moved with his family from Pennsylvania to Seattle.

In the 35 years since arriving in the NW, he has served as the senior pastor of West Side Presbyterian Church. A recent tally showed he had officiated 180 wedding ceremonies, led 256 memorial services, and baptized more than 430 children and adults. He has also been active in renewal ministries with the Presbyterian Church (USA) and has served the church both locally and nationally in promoting and equipping churches for evangelism.

Born November 25, 1945, Paul is the son of a banker and one of six children. He grew up in a small ranching town in Western South Dakota near Badlands National Park. He graduated with honors from Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL, before marrying his wife, Carreen Armerding and earning an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston, MA.

For the first ten years of his ministry, Dr. Smith served as Assistant Pastor and then Senior Pastor of Immanuel Presbyterian Church in McKeesport, PA.

He completed his Doctorate of Ministry from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School shortly after arriving in Seattle. And in the years since, he’s written four books: Jesus, Meet him again for the First Time; Close Encounters: Knowing the Savior; Enjoying God Forever; God’s Plan for our Good. He has also traveled extensively throughout Israel and Jordan and has co-led a half-dozen tours, in Israel, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, and Greece.

Paul and his wife, Carreen are the parents of four children: Lucian, Taleigh, Lindsay, and Miriam, and grandparents of seven.

Following retirement, and a long-awaited trip to Africa, the Smiths will return to Seattle, where Paul plans to continue his writing and looks forward to spending more time with his family and grandchildren.
