Today: New Year celebration, electronics recycling, Haiti fundraiser

Looks like yet another sunny day (maybe 2nd to last) … here are some of your options:

VIETNAMESE NEW YEAR: West Seattle’s Vietnamese Cultural Center invites you to its celebration at 1:30 this afternoon, 2236 SW Orchard (map).

ELECTRONICS/APPLIANCES RECYCLING: 9 am-2 pm, Fauntleroy Church (9140 California SW) parking lot is where to bring recyclables including electronics and appliances; details at This is in partnership with 1 Green Planet.

ALSO IN FAUNTLEROY: Little Pilgrim School, which is at Fauntleroy Church, has an open house for 2-5-year-olds and their parents, 11 am-1 pm.

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm as always, 44th/Alaska. The online Ripe and Ready list is still in last weekend’s Valentine mode but still gives you an idea of some of what’s fresh.

(some of what was on sale Saturday)
ALSO IN THE JUNCTION: The office-furniture (etc.) sale to raise money for Haiti relief continues 10 am-2 pm today, outside Olympic Court (home to WSB sponsor Westside Dermatology), 4740 44th SW (just north of the Chase drive-thru).

CAMPAIGN KICKOFF: 5-7 pm at the ILWU Hall on Pigeon Point (2414 SW Andover), it’s Marcee Stone‘s campaign kickoff for State House, Position 2 (currently held by Rep. Sharon Nelson, who has said she’ll be running for the Senate seat currently held by Sen. Joe McDermott, who is running for King County Council). Stone is State Committeewoman for the 34th District Democrats and announced her campaign at their February meeting (WSB coverage here).

    Philippe: Very nice use of the slow shutter there, giving that moving water a foggy look.
