Here’s what’s ahead as your pre-holiday weekend begins:

RECYCLING/SHREDDING EVENT: Gather up your recyclables and your in-need-of-shredding documents and get yourself to the West Seattle Junction‘s east-side parking lot, 9 am-1 pm. Free! Read this first for the info you need before you go. (42nd SW south of SW Oregon)

DIAPER DRIVE + DISCOUNT: Gift shop Alair offers you a deal if you bring diapers:

Alair is a dropoff point for the WestSide Baby diaper drive! This weekend only, everyone that brings in diapers or wipes for those in need will receive 25% off any one item in the store. The diapers do not have to be a brand new package- WestSide Baby accepts open packages of diapers that the kiddos outgrew as well.

    There is line of cars on Oregon Street (in both directions) trying to get to the Recycle event.

    What a cool driftwood build!

     Okay, you got me WSB! Please someone tell me what that beautiful wooden object that was seen at Lincoln Park is. I have pondered it and am drawing a blank. Thanks in advance.

      I think it’s a large birdhouse-size thing, based on the pinecones next to it.  Being between two paths like that, I’d wonder if it’s on the north side of the pool, but it looks like TR took the photo and would know better.

    Is the diaper drive today?

    • WSB June 30, 2018 (11:19 am)

      At Alair? Yes, that’s why it’s in today’s list. Tomorrow too. Dozens of places/people are having drives, as usual, at various times. Alair just happened to tell us about theirs. (Anybody else? Let us know!)

Sorry, comment time is over.
