 |   Holidays | West Seattle news

Another first-ever West Seattle holiday event is under way – the Brookdale Admiral Heights Festival of Trees. Decorated, donated trees are all around the lobby at 2326 California SW.

Some are traditional, and some are whimsical – this one seems to have trapped the Grinch:

The one below has a Mardi Gras theme, in keeping with its donor, nearby restaurant Circa, whose menu includes New Orleans specialties:

Other donors include longtime WSB sponsor Illusions Hair Design – cards will be up soon so you know which local business or organization donated which tree. And that matters, because in two weeks, they’ll all be auctioned off for charity:

You can visit the Brookdale AH lobby 8 am-8 pm daily to see the trees until December 9th – that night, 6-8 pm, they’ll have a gala auction, fundraising for the Rotary Club of West Seattle 360 for Good campaign. No admission charge but please RSVP for the gala, 206-512-7730 or tmeade@brookdale.com. P.S. If you can, bring nonperishable food when you visit – there’s a West Seattle Food Bank bin by the front door.

Toplines from Admiral Neighborhood Association’s November meeting

 |   Neighborhoods | West Seattle news

This past week was a busy one for community meetings. Here are the toplines from another one we covered, the Admiral Neighborhood Association‘s first “hybrid” meeting – in-person and streamed – on Tuesday night.

NEW PRECINCT COMMANDER: Capt. Martin Rivera, the new commander of the Southwest Precinct (which serves West Seattle and South Park), is continuing a series of get-acquainted stops. He was mostly there to listen, so no presentation, but a rep from Brookdale Admiral Heights voiced concerns about suspicious activity near its entrances, and Capt. Rivera said he’d talk with Crime Prevention Coordinator Jennifer Danner abut working on a plan for the building.

OPERATION NIGHTWATCH: Members of Admiral Church – where the ANA meeting was held – summarized the church’s plan to partner with Operation Nightwatch to provide 10 men with a place to sleep. (Nothing new beyond what we’ve been reporting – here’s our most-recent story.) During discussion, Capt. Rivera mentioned that he had interacted with Nightwatch and described the organization as responsible and well-organized.

HERON’S NEST: As we reported separately, ANA heard from Amanda Lee of The Heron’s Nest, who announced they’d won a $900,000 city grant toward purchasing the West Duwamish Greenbelt site they plan to use for environmental education and repatriate to the Duwamish Tribe.

ELECTIONS: ANA elected next year’s officers at this meeting, including: Drew Sowa will continue as president; Larry Wymer will continue as vice president; Tina Bendermacher is the new secretary; (added) Bridgett Markillie is treasurer; Stephanie Jordan will continue on as concerts coordinator, in hopes ANA’s popular summer series at Hiawatha can return next summer.

The senior-living complex Brookdale Admiral Heights is planning a Festival of Trees this holiday season and looking for businesses to donate decorated trees. Here’s the announcement:

You can help us celebrate our first ever magical community event by donating a decorated holiday tree to the Brookdale Admiral Heights Festival of Trees.

Deadline to donate a tree and be a part of the festival is November 6th. Please note we are capping our tree donations at 12 this year, so sign up ASAP! Also send your business logo.

Your decorated tree is a tax-deductible donation which will be auctioned off as part of the fundraising efforts of the West Seattle Rotary.

New president for Rotary Club of West Seattle

September 17, 2021 6:50 pm
|    Comments Off on New president for Rotary Club of West Seattle
 |   Rotary Club of West Seattle | West Seattle news

One of West Seattle’s most active service clubs has a new president. Here’s the announcement from the Rotary Club of West Seattle:

In 1947, the Rotary Club of West Seattle began serving the local community. From then to now, community leaders of West Seattle have assembled under the banner of Rotary in an effort to exchange ideas and take action to improve the lives of neighbors in need.

The Rotary Club of West Seattle is pleased to announce the President of the 2021-2022 Rotary year will be Alan Mitchell. When asked about the opportunity to lead the service organization, he had this to say: “After I became ‘rewired’ in 2016 (working in service to others instead of for money), two friends separately said, ‘you should look into your local Rotary club.’ I joined because I found good people working together cooperatively in service to others at the local and international levels while having fun. I saw that they are people from a wide span of ages, from those in their 30s starting up families and careers, to others who are also retired. That’s the kind of club I want to be a part of and contribute significantly to for programs that help neighbors locally and around the world.

“Preceding me was Dawn Schaper, Executive Director at Brookdale Admiral Heights, a senior living community. She left extremely big shoes to fill, but with the help of our club’s leadership, I’m confident that we will together be able to address the needs of the very important causes our club supports.”

The Rotary Club of West Seattle is accepting new members. Click here if interested in joining a Club meeting to learn more.

HAPPENING NOW: Father’s Day car show in Admiral

Thanks for the tip! Until 4 pm, Brookdale Admiral Heights is hosting a ’50s-themed classic-car show out front of their building at 2326 California SW. Free but they’re also hosting a donation drive:

We are accepting donations on this day for the 360 for Good campaign funds both spring for Kids, benefitting underserved elementary school students in West Seattle, and Brighten Haiti, providing refurbished solar power systems for the 65% of people in Haiti who lack electricity.

Note: The show is scheduled until 4 but they’ve had some early departures so don’t wait until the end!

Rotary Club of West Seattle Visitors Day

Rotary Club of West Seattle — Visitors Day
June 22, 2021
11:30 – 1:00 p.m.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise. One of the guiding principles is the Four-Way Test, which is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide, or set of values, Rotarians use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and often Rotarians recite it at club meetings.

Of the things, we think, say or do:

Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The interesting thing about Rotary is that the local clubs govern how to run their club. Each club has a different focus. But one thing they all have in common is that they are a leadership organization, made up of local business, professional and civic leaders. They meet regularly, get to know each other, and through that, are able to get things done in their own community. Watch this myth buster video to help you understand the role of Rotary in your community.

The Rotary Club of West Seattle invites you to Visitors Day on Tuesday, June 22nd at the Alki Masonic Hall (4736 40th Ave SW) from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Come and learn what Rotary is all about and how becoming a member can benefit both your business and personal life. Coffee, tea, and refreshments will be served. If you are vaccinated, join us in person! Otherwise, use this Zoom link here to join us online.
