Here are highlights of what’s happening in West Seattle, morning through night, on your Wednesday:
FIREFIGHTER STORY TIME: 10:30-11 am at Southwest Library – your little ones get to see and hear firefighters reading to them and explaining fire safety. (9010 35th SW)
FLU SHOTS: As previewed here on Tuesday, both Denny International Middle School (1:30-5:30 pm; 2601 SW Kenyon) and West Seattle High School (3-6 pm; 3000 California SW) have flu-shot clinics this afternoon, not just for students and staff. This is happening “after school” since Wednesdays are two-hour-early-release days.
