West Seattle Monday: From Seafair to Sealth

(Finally summer! Eugene shared this Sunday afternoon photo of his son at Alki)
Today’s forecast: Sunny, 70s. Highlights from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar:

FIRST BLUE ANGELS ARRIVAL: The biggest week of Seafair is under way, and you may see/hear the first Blue Angels jet to arrive – #8, the two-seater, is due in this morning, with Lt. Commander Todd Royles, who is scheduled to be giving rides to pre-selected “community influencers” starting around noon. (The other Blue Angels are due in around 11 am Tuesday). As always, the Angels will be based at the Museum of Flight adjacent to Boeing Field during their Seattle stay; here’s this week’s airshow info from the Seafair website.

COUNCIL CELEBRATES GRANT RECIPIENTS: Two West Seattle groups receiving city grants from the Large Project Fund will be among those celebrated at a City Council reception at 1 pm today downtown. West Seattle CoolMom is receiving $60,000 for a “Think Outside the Car” outreach program; The New Camp Long Community Collaboration Project is receiving $100,000 for the “challenge course” that’s going in at the park.

WEST SEATTLE COOKING CLUB: Today’s theme is Middle Eastern for this informal group of cooking aficionados, meeting at 2 pm at Beveridge Place Pub (they’re on Facebook, here).

CHOOSING A CHIEF SEALTH PRINCIPAL: As previewed here, tonight is the meeting at Seattle Public Schools HQ (2445 3rd Ave. S, room 2700) downtown, 6 pm, for everyone interested in the process of helping choose a successor for Chief Sealth International High School principal John Boyd. District management says an interim principal will be appointed ASAP for the coming school year. You also are invited to participate by taking this online survey.

FAMILY STORY TIME: 7 pm tonight at the High Point branch of the Seattle Public Library (35th/Raymond) – songs, rhymes, games, and books with the children’s librarian.

    So, marty, you don’t believe in investing in a non-profit group that supports a healthy planet for our future generations?

    Mike: I believe in it when we can afford to pay for all of our essentials first. Just asking for a little bit of financial common sense.

Sorry, comment time is over.
