Mother Joseph Day Mass with Father Matthew Oakland @ Providence Mount St. Vincent
Apr 27 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Providence Mount St. Vincent on April 27, 2017, will hold a celebratory mass in honor of Mother Joseph Day.

The mass begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Pigott Chapel (3rd floor) at Providence Mount St. Vincent, 4831 35th Ave SW, Seattle.The public is invited to attend. Father Matthew Oakland of Holy Rosary Parish in West Seattle will preside.

In honor of Mother Joseph’s history of love, selflessness and charity, Providence Mount St. Vincent, lovingly known as “The Mount,” is collecting children’s books written in different languages to donate to Neighborhood House.

Also, with more than 50 percent of The Mount’s staff coming from different countries, three staff members have been invited to speak at the mass to reflect on what love means in their cultures, in their families and how that is translated to their work at The Mount.

Mother Joseph Of The Sacred Heart (Esther Pariseau), 1823-1902, spent her life seeing that the poor were cared for, the homeless sheltered, the sick tended, the hungry fed. In 1856, 13 years after she entered the Sisters of Providence, Mother Joseph and four companions traveled 6,000 miles from Montreal to the distant Washington Territory. In 1859 she established a corporation that has developed into what is now Providence Health & Services, committed to improving health through hospitals, physician clinics, senior services, supportive housing, and many other health and educational services across Alaska, California, Montana, Oregon and Washington. She devoted her life to the young, sick and poor until her death in Vancouver in 1902.

The Dave Holo Trio performs @ Salty’s on Alki
Apr 28 @ 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor) presents live New Orleans jazz featuring Dave Holo Trio.
Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.

Healthy Kids Day 2017 at the West Seattle Y @ West Seattle YMCA
Apr 29 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

YMCA Healthy Kids Day
10:00am – 1:00pm

The annual Healthy Kids Day event takes place at hundreds of YMCA locations across the nation on Saturday, April 29, an initiative to improve the health and well-being of local kids.

Here in the great Puget Sound area, Kaiser Permanente will partner with Team Thrive, a professional women’s cycling team, and more than 250 volunteers to fit kids with free bicycle helmets. The goal is to give away 10,000 helmets at Healthy Kids Day and similar events this spring.

Kaiser Permanente Medical Director and avid cyclist Matthew Handley, MD will show how to properly fit a helmet and discuss helmet safety.

Certified? Choose a bicycle helmet that meets the safety standards of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Look for a sticker on the helmet.

Size & Fit: The helmet should fit snuggly, not moving up or down, front to back or side to side. Pads can be used inside the helmet to fine-tune the fit, but should not be used in lieu of acquiring a more appropriate-sized helmet.
Position:
Eyes: The helmet should sit level on the head, resting one to two finger widths above the eyebrows.
Ears: The straps of the helmet should form a “Y” around each ear, with the slider resting below the earlobe. The straps should be flat against the head, not twisted.
Chin: The buckle should be centered below the chin, loose enough to allow breathing and speaking, but not so loose that the helmet moves. A helpful test is if you can fit a finger between the buckle and chin.

When to replace: Helmets should be replaced every three to five years, regardless if they have been in an accident. If there has been a crash or other impact, replace the helmet.

“Trump-Proof Seattle” – District 1 Town Hall with Lisa Herbold @ South Seattle Community College, Olympic Theater

The Trump-Proof Seattle campaign aims to bring a progressive income tax to Seattle, affecting only the wealthiest 5% of households. A tax of just 1.5% on income in excess of $250K would raise over $125M per year in Seattle. We can protect against Trump’s proposed budget cuts, challenge our state’s unjust tax system, and build a city where everyone and every community can thrive.

This Town Hall is organized by, and for, residents of District 1, but all are welcome to attend. The event is co-sponsored by the District 1 Neighborhood Action Council, the Transit Riders Union, 350 Seattle, and Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action.

Come to learn more about the campaign, meet the volunteers and organizations that are making it happen, & sign up to get involved!

“…[a] fine play…so concentrated and unflinching that at times it takes your breath away.” — Observer (London).

“A major play…thrilling, humane and timely.” —Times (London).

“…[a] big, brave, compassionate play about grief, revenge, forgiveness and bearing the unbearable.” — Guardian (London).

“Consistently surprising and even bravely comic…The almost thriller-like promise of the play’s climactic confrontation is like a time-bomb ticking in the back of your head.” — Independent (London).

ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery  is pleased to announce Bryony Lavery’s “Frozen”, the Tony Award-nominated play about a serial killer and two women who track him down. Performances will run Thursday, April 20 through Sunday until May 14.

Synopsis: As Ralph, a serial killer with a heart of ice, sits in prison contemplating crimes, two women cross the country to confront him – Agnetha, a psychologist who studies the minds of monsters, and Nancy, mother to one of his young victims. When their paths finally cross, they explore the dark side of human nature and our capacity for change.

Cast
The ArtsWest production of Frozen features a meeting of two Seattle acting powerhouses – Amy Thone (THE TRIAL, TITUS ANDRONICUS) as Nancy, and Peter Crook (Mozart in Broadway’s touring cast of AMADEUS, INTIMAN’s ANGELS IN AMERICA and more) as Ralph.
Rounding out the cast is Jonelle Jordan as Agentha, making her ArtsWest debut.

“…[a] fine play…so concentrated and unflinching that at times it takes your breath away.” — Observer (London).

“A major play…thrilling, humane and timely.” —Times (London).

“…[a] big, brave, compassionate play about grief, revenge, forgiveness and bearing the unbearable.” — Guardian (London).

“Consistently surprising and even bravely comic…The almost thriller-like promise of the play’s climactic confrontation is like a time-bomb ticking in the back of your head.” — Independent (London).

Immigrant Rights & Family Safety Planning Workshop @ Roxhill Elementary
May 8 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

The Seattle Public Library is partnering with Colectiva Legal del Pueblo, Seattle Public Schools, and the ACLU of Washington, to offer immigrant rights and family safety planning workshops at two locations.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required. Workshops will be offered in Spanish and English. Spanish text is available in the Library’s Calendar of Events.

These workshops aim to mitigate the effects of a family member—many times the head of a family—being detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Participants will learn how to develop a family safety plan, gather relevant documents to fight a deportation case and support someone who is detained.

By creating plans for children in mixed-status households, parents will be able to plan for the prospect of separation by designating temporary legal guardianship. At the workshop, families are guided through filling out general power of attorney documents that give authority to a spouse or another person to make decisions in the event of a separation.

Other topics covered will include the most recent updates on executive orders, as well as past policies, memos and executive orders that have shaped legal and ICE practices.

Monday, May 8
6 p.m. to 7:30 pm
