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)

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.
