(WSB photo: Smoky Monday afternoon @ Alki Statue of Liberty Plaza)
First announcements of this type that we’ve received – and likely not the last – both just out of the WSB inbox. First, from West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor) executive director Shalimar Gonzales:
With more fires cropping up in BC and surrounding areas, the smoke may be here for a while longer. The West Seattle Y is offering a respite for community members at our location on Snoqualmie Street. Our center is air-conditioned and offers free Wi-Fi.
This is an opportunity for us to pay back this special community. We are happy to open our doors to our neighbors to protect their health.
The use of these facilities is free to the public. YMCA lot parking regulations still apply. A government issued photo ID is required to enter the facility. If you are interested in getting a workout in, feel free to stop by our welcome center to get a free pass to use our facility.
And from St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church rector Rev. Kate Wesch:
Tuesday and Wednesday, August 21 and 22 from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Escape the smoke with children ages 0-5 who need to move at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church
Do you have cabin fever with your little ones? Looking for some space to run around where the kids can play indoors away from the smoke? St. John’s is opening the Parish Hall, a large carpeted room, and will have a few large motor toys and blocks out. Come for an hour or stay all three. We’ll have coffee for the grown ups. St. John’s is located on the corner of California Ave SW and SW Hanford St. next door to WS High School. (3050 California Ave SW) Questions? 206-937-4545
Anybody else with something special to announce? email@example.com – thanks!
