Right now: Garage/bake sale for Haiti; garden party; bloodmobile

So we’re driving around to get photos of events we already knew about — when we happened onto something else. A dancing banana by Admiral Chevron begged the question of “What’s THAT all about?” — hopped out and snapped the photo: 3 students, 2 Kennedy and 1 Seattle Prep, collecting money for Haiti – and, oh yeah, promoting a garage sale nearby, doing the same thing. 1930 47th SW, said the sign … so off we went:

Not only are they having a garage sale (IN the garage, so you won’t get wet), but also a bake sale, all proceeds (as with the money in the boys’ bucket at California/Admiral) going to American Red Cross‘s and Catholic Relief Haiti efforts. Here’s a map – they’re there till 2 pm. Before the garage-sale side trip, we stopped by Seacrest:

The West Seattle Wildlife Habitat Project is putting in more plants for the demonstration garden by Seacrest. Next step – this spring, they start organizing to get more West Seattle neighborhoods beyond Alki certified as Wildlife Habitat – listen up for details to come regarding what you can do in YOUR neighborhood. And join the WS Wildlife Habitat Project group on Facebook (go here). The work party’s over at noon — but here’s something else happening till 3 pm (on break 11:30-12:30 so don’t go by during that time):

The Puget Sound Blood Center‘s mobile blood drive – B- and O- especially needed but other types welcome – outside Admiral Safeway (parked on California) till 3 pm. More of today’s events as they happen, coming up; you can also “follow” WSB on Twitter (@westseattleblog), where we post pix of most events we cover, while we’re there.

    Oh My! We saw the dancing banana. It was FABULOUS. Had I not been in the car with a pet on the way to the vet I would have taken that route. Excellent work BananaMan! Keep us informed if you’ll be out dancing again or doing kids dance parties.

    I was really happy to see those boys working hard to raise money for the red cross. They wouldn’t stop banging a drum and moving around. I hope they raised a lot!!

    This was a fun service project that raised a lot of money for the people of Haiti. Thank you to our brothers and friends that danced on the corner to get the attention of the community. We raised $1320.02 for the American Red Cross and The Catholic Relief fund. Thank you again for all your support. Michael Sasonoff and Parker Diller
