West Seattle Saturday: Join forces with your neighbors!


Thanks to Janna for the exuberant photo from sunset at the beach. Before our next sunset … helping out in your neighborhood is a big theme today. From the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar as well as from previews we’ve published, ways to help, and more:

NORTH DELRIDGE CLEANUP: The North Delridge Neighborhood Council Beautification Committee invites you to meet at Uptown Espresso in Delridge, 9:30 am for coffee/socializing, 10 am to head out and clean up. (Delridge Way/SW Andover)

HIGHLAND PARK ELEMENTARY CLEANUP AND PLAYGROUND PLANNING: All-day event for which you’re invited to go the distance, or drop in for just a while. 8 am-4 pm playground planning, 9 am-noon cleanup in front of the school. (1012 SW Trenton)

WEST SEATTLE ROCK AND GEM SHOW: 10 am-5 pm today and tomorrow at Alki Masonic Center, the West Seattle Rock Club‘s annual show offers activities, rock/gem viewing, vendors, more. Admission free. More info in our calendar listing. (40th SW/SW Edmunds)

HIGHLAND PARK IMPROVEMENT CLUB HELP: Starting at 11 am, HP Improvement Club and friends will be taking apart the building “eyebrow” that fell on Thursday night:

Skills/tools needed: Sawzall, circular saw, long extension cords, gloves, eye protection, and ear protection if you want. The structure needs to be cut up and then placed into the dumpster in such a way that it holds all the material. There will be lots of nails poking out, so tough clothing, shoes and gloves highly recommended. If you want to bring snacks, that’s great too. And even if you want to just stop by – please do, and cheer on the Eyebrow Un-Raising!

Depending on how much gets done today, they might need help on Sunday too – we should have an update in the evening. (12th SW/SW Holden)
