West Seattle Friday: Cookies, gardening, dancing, bingo, yoga…

Thanks to Gary Jones for another close-up look at eagles on Alki Point – just as we get ready to fly into the weekend! Ahead, just part of what you’ll find on the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

GIRL SCOUT COOKIES: Starting today, you’ll see Girl Scouts around West Seattle (and other parts of the metro area) starting their annual fundraising cookie sale. No new flavors this year – just six tried-and-true types, Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils, Savannah Smiles. You can find cookie-selling venues by using this online locator. Sales continue through March 16th.

WEST SEATTLE GARDEN CLUB: Drop by for some or all of the monthly meeting, 10 am-2 pm at Daystar Retirement Village – details in our calendar listing. (2615 SW Barton)

BIG BAND DINNER DANCE: If you don’t have your tickets to tonight’s West Seattle High School Big Band Dinner Dance, featuring WSHS student musicians as well as the West Seattle Big Band, you can buy them at the door. Here’s a video invitation shared by parent volunteers:

For $17, you get dinner 6-7 and big band music/dancing 7-9 pm (plus dance instruction, dessert, beverages, and a chance at door prizes). A special $8 music/dancing-only tickets for students is available. It’s happening at WSHS, and benefiting WSHS band, orchestra, jazz-band members raising money for this spring’s performance and competition trips. (3000 California SW)

    I look forward to checking out the new location for PC Mobile Help and meeting the owner
    but PLEASE; if you have an “old” laptop, please DONATE, rather than recycle
    if you have an old-to-you laptop because you were fortunate enough to be gifted with a new laptop during the holidays, or you upgraded and not sure what to do with your “old” laptop; please make it possible for those in our community who cannot afford ANY laptop to have a new-to-them laptop, because of your generosity and the generosity of Ken-the-computer-whiz; he turns old laptops into ‘new’ laptops; and he’s an expert on cleaning out the hard drive, so it’s safe
    Ken rebuilds laptops, using old laptops for parts
    if you got a shiny new laptop for xmas and not sure what to do with your old one
    please, give it to Ken
    he will reuse, and create wonderful “new” useable laptops for people who cannot afford to buy one
    especially useful donations: “any older win7 or vista laptops”
    Thanks, Diane (one of Ken’s very grateful recipients)
