JUNCTION PLAZA PARK GROUNDBREAKING CELEBRATION: 10 am today, northwest corner of 42nd/Alaska. Junction Plaza Park has been many years in the making, and after a final year-plus community fundraising push involving leaders from the West Seattle Junction Association (WSB sponsor) and Junction Neighborhood Organization, construction is about to begin. Before crews take over the site for the next month and a half or so, there’ll be a ceremony at 10 this morning, and if you can break away, you’ll be warmly welcomed.
PIGEON POINT NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL: Since the last meeting, this northeastern West Seattle neighborhood has gone through six weeks of road closures/detours, and events ahead include the Pigeon Point Park leg of Duwamish Alive! this Saturday in honor of Earth Day. So what else is up in Pigeon Point? Come to the cafeteria at Pathfinder K-8 tonight, 7 pm, and find out.
NEIGHBORHOOD PREPAREDNESS CLASS: We’ve been talking about Disaster Preparedness every night this month and tonight, Fauntleroy neighbors get some hands-on training in a special class at 7 pm, Fauntleroy Church.
HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY AT SCCC: 9 am-noon today at Brockey Center on the South Seattle Community College (WSB sponsor) campus, Holocaust Remembrance Day will be observed with talks by survivors of genocide in Europe, Cambodia, and Rwanda. Everyone is welcome.
