West Seattle, Washington
Another returning tradition – a dine-out day/night at Endolyne Joe’s (9261 45th SW) to cook up some cash for the Fauntleroy Fall Festival! This Tuesday (June 7th) is the date; Endolyne Joe’s is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (here’s the menu), 8 am-9 pm, and all you have to do is show up and dine. If you’re there in the evening, FFF-benefiting raffle tickets will be sold starting at 5 pm, with the drawing after 7:30 pm (you don’t have to be present to win). The festival is entirely community-powered – both in volunteers and in funding – so this is one way to help ensure it goes on to bring good times to one and all.
We don’t know if door-to-door soliciting went entirely away during the past few years, but in the past few days we’ve received reader complaints/alerts about solicitors for the first time in two-plus years – so here’s a refresher course of what you should know, from the Seattle Municipal Code:
*Door-to-door (residential) selling is allowed between 8 am-9 pm.
*The entity for whom the seller is working has to have a license, and the seller (agent) must have ID showing the license and the agent’s name: “All licensees and agents shall conspicuously display on their outer clothing their residential sales license or residential sales agent licenses when selling.” If you choose to open the door, ask to see it immediately: “Each residential seller or agent shall, immediately upon contacting the prospective buyer, disclose to the prospective buyer his/her name, company, and the product or service represented.”
*Solicitors are required to honor a “no soliciting” sign if you have one. Whether you do or don’t, they’re also required to honor this part of the code: “If requested to do so, (the agent) shall leave the premises immediately.”
Susanna found that kids’ bicycle abandoned in the 9000 block of 14th Avenue SW, and is holding onto it in hopes of finding its owner. If you know whose bike it is, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll connect you.
Summer adventure is ahead for 40 West Seattle High School students, as part of a district-leading program – here’s the announcement:
We have the excellent news to announce that more students than ever from West Seattle High School will be studying abroad this summer. We are the top school in the district and one of the top schools in the nation with CIEE! This summer, 40 students from WSHS will be departing the country for 3-4 weeks to study abroad as part of the CIEE Global Navigator Program. They will be studying a wide variety of subjects during their experience, including language, environmental science, arts, business, leadership, and international relations. Students will be traveling to 11 different countries including Mexico, Spain, France, Costa Rica, Argentina, Portugal, UK, Ireland, Morocco, Dominican Republic, and the Netherlands. This year, students earned over $66,000 in scholarships toward their journeys. This program is coordinated by French teacher Meghan Schumacher.

An announcement and invitation, from the Rotary Club of West Seattle:
The Rotary Club of West Seattle is excited to “Plant and Dedicate“ three Peace Poles to the following locations in 2022.
West Seattle Eagles Club, 4426 California SW
Fauntleroy Church, UCC, 9140 California SW
The Log House Museum, 3003 61st Ave SW
As background, one of Rotary’s primary areas of focus is the promotion of peace throughout the community and world. Peace Poles symbolize the oneness of humanity and our prominent wish for world peace. There are more than 250,000 Peace Poles globally, including several in West Seattle.
The power of the message “May Peace Prevail On Earth” lies in its capacity to bring people of various cultures, faith, traditions, and political ideals together as one united global heart and mind.
The Rotary Club of West Seattle is interested in learning if there are other Churches, Community Centers, Libraries, City Parks, Restaurants, or Historical Sites in West Seattle that might want to discuss a gift of a Peace Pole.
