Welcome to the weekend! Here are (updated) 12 notes for the day/night ahead …
TRAFFIC ALERTS: Another weekend of work at West Marginal/Highland Park Way, scheduled until 1 pm today and again 3 am-1 pm tomorrow, with lane reductions, so avoid that intersection until later in the day if you can. Also, southbound Delridge Way remains closed between Holden and Trenton.
LEMONADE & TREATS: Happening 11 am-5 pm at 42nd/Charlestown:
Hi! My name is Harper and me and my friend, Akemi, are 11 year old scouts who just completed our bronze award by making the inclusion fence at HPIC. We are having a lemonade stand this weekend to help raise money to go to Costa Rica in 2022 so we can learn about sea turtles and explore the amazing rainforests. Marine animals have always fascinated us and this trip will be an amazing experience, especially because Akemi wants to be a marine biologist when she grows up! Please help us reach Costa Rica by buying lemonade, iced coffee, or treats!
(Update: Postponed until next Saturday)
BENEFIT BARBECUE: 11 am-4 pm outside West Seattle Thriftway (4201 SW Morgan; WSB sponsor), get a fresh-grilled hamburger or hot-dog lunch and the proceeds go to Pencil Me In For Kids.
LOW-LOW TIDE: The tide is out to -3.2 feet at 11:40 am today. Seattle Aquarium volunteer beach naturalists will be at Lincoln Park only, 9:45 am-12:45 pm, for questions and exploration advice (skipping Constellation Park because of the recent sewage leak).
LONG-DISTANCE SWIMMER: Somewhere between (updated) 10:30-11 am, marathon swimmer Melissa Kegler of Sammamish is expected to reach Alki Point, halfway on her planned “double lap of the Amy Hiland Swim (Bremerton to Alki and back to Bremerton),” according to the Northwest Open Water Swimming Association. You can follow the tracking here after she starts around 6 am.
VISCON CELLARS: The tasting room is open 1-6 pm at 5910 California SW – enjoy Viscon Cellars (WSB sponsor) wines by the glass or bottle, too.
(added) VIVA ARTS OPEN HOUSE: Thanks to Sara for the tip. Viva Arts is having an open house with tours, class previews, more, 1-3:30 pm, back parking lot at 4421 Fauntleroy Way SW.
ALL-CITY BAND JAM: No parades this summer but there IS a Band Jam – not in West Seattle this year, but Mark wanted everyone to know:
Even though there are no parades again this summer, there is one chance for everyone to get their All City Band fix this summer. ACB got together for a shortened season to work on a field show for their annual Band Jam at Memorial Stadium 2-4 pm Saturday. A few other groups will also perform. Here is the link to the information page: allcityband.org/bandjam
Masks and a completed Seattle School District Covid health screening are required for entry into Memorial Stadium seattlepsb2s.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1MJ02N2Lv2lT5P0?Q_CHL
The stadium is downtown at 401 5th Ave. N.
