From the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar for today/tonight:

‘GREAT SHAKEOUT’ EARTHQUAKE DRILL: Are you participating? Many are, at 10:19 am today – practicing to “drop, cover, and hold on.” Genesee Hill Elementary in West Seattle is the official media site for Seattle Public Schools participation, and we’re planning to be there.

DANCE IN THE AFTERNOON: Free between 2 and 4 pm? Go to the Senior Center of West Seattle for dance time with music by Lauren Petrie. (4217 SW Oregon)

TINKERLAB: All ages welcome for free, fun STEM-themed crafts at High Point Library, 4-5:30 pm. Today’s theme: Snap Circuits. (35th SW/SW Raymond)

TEEN HUNT AND COSTUME CONTEST: From the WSB Halloween Etc. Guide – ~6 pm at Hiawatha Community Center, for ages 11-17: “A flashlight, goodie bag, and strong spirit is all you need to capture prizes in our grounds. YCTP intern staff will award a ‘spookiest’ and ‘most original’ costume prize prior to the hunt. Hunt begins promptly at dusk.” Free! (2700 California SW)

(added) WOMEN’S NIGHT AT CLICK: 6-9 pm at Click! Design That Fits (WSB sponsor):

We’re welcoming three woman-owned businesses tonight, and you’re invited!

Bring a friend and check out the new holiday collection from Hobo. The local rep is bringing one of her favorites to give away in a drawing, and we’re offering a (super cute!) gift with bag purchase while supplies last.

Meet the makers: Ann of Chikahisa Studio and Lauren of Naked Truth Beauty will both be here. You’ve seen Chikahisa jewelry at Click!; Ann will be bringing a bigger selection including rings! Naked Truth is a line of natural beauty products (with eco-friendly packaging) made right here in the PNW. The party is in the upstairs loft, and we’ll have snacks and bubbly beverages to sip while you shop.

KNOW WHO YOU’RE VOTING FOR? If you’re still making up your mind – or just want to reinforce the decision you’ve made – candidates in three key citywide races will be part of a West Seattle forum tonight, co-sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and Transportation Coalition. 6:30 pm doors open at American Legion Post 160 in The Triangle. City Council Position 8 is up first, then Position 9, then Mayor, and organizers say all candidates have RSVP’d. All welcome, no admission charge. (3618 SW Alaska)

DESIGN REVIEW FOR 2715 CALIFORNIA SW: 6:30 pm at Senior Center of West Seattle, the Southwest Design Review Board takes its next look at the mixed-use project called Admiral Station. See the design packet here. The meeting will include a public-comment period. (2715 California SW)

PREPAREDNESS @ TIMEBANK: West Seattle Timebank‘s topic during the 6:30-8 pm meeting at the Senior Center of West Seattle is preparedness – more info in our calendar listing. (4217 SW Oregon)

MAKE HATS FOR PEOPLE IN NEED: 7 pm at Tibbetts United Methodist Church (WSB sponsor):

It’s beginning to get cold out and a perfect time to knit a warm hat for others less fortunate than ourselves. If you’re a knitter (or crocheter), or if you’re someone who wants to learn how to knit, please feel free to join us on Thursday 10/19 at 7 pm. Tibbetts is at 3940 41st SW; entry in the alley door. We’ll have several patterns available for you. If you have supplies, feel free to bring your odds and ends of yarn and some needles and join the fun and fellowship!
