Live music at Skylark Café & Club featuring Lauren Davidson in a Benefit Show For Wounded Warriors (https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/).

CMA (country music association) artist Lauren Davidson is a New York City/New Jersey based singer-songwriter. Since the age of 10, she has been performing professionally by putting her unique and powerful voice on display. One of Lauren’s greatest joys is being on stage and collaborating with other musicians. Lauren comes from a musical family, singing and performing with her father since childhood and later writing songs together. She continues to co-write with him today in addition to other writers on the music scene.

Lauren is inspired daily by artists of many different genres of music including Contemporary Country, Rock, and Pop. She has become a popular and loved name on the Regional Country scene where she has carved out a niche as an established singer-songwriter.

In 2015, Lauren released her first two singles, “Sometimes,” and “Loaded Gun.” The critically-acclaimed tracks were featured on her debut EP, Hear Me. You can find Lauren Davidson’s songs on all major digital music outlets.

The country singer gives fans everything she’s got when playing numerous venues around the tri-state area. Lauren has opened shows for some of todays biggest country stars including Old Dominion, Justin Moore, LOCASH, and more.

Lauren’s “Loaded Gun” has been exclusively featured on The Boot and was named Nash FM 94.7 Nash Next Top 10 finalist. Her latest release, “I’ll Drink To That,” was named the Digital Journal’s Top 5 Female Country Radio Singles in 2017.

Learn about new 24-credit high-school requirement @ Chief Sealth International High School
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm

We’d like to invite the West Seattle Community to our Nov. 13th, PTSA General Meeting for a presentation on the state requirement for 24 credits for graduation. Presentation by Heidi Bennett, Wa. State Region 6, Legislative Representative.

NEW 24 CREDIT GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS & DECIPHERING HIGH SCHOOL – A guide for middle and high school parents

With the change to WA State 24-credit graduation requirements approaching, I’ve developed a presentation geared toward middle and high school parents to explain:

v New WA State 24-credit graduation requirements

v State and Federal testing High School requirements

v Deciphering acronyms – PPR, HSBP, AP, IB, CHIS, CTE, STEM, etc. – do you know what these are?

v Why and how to earn post-secondary credit (college or work credentials) in high school

For Shoreline and Seattle, the 24-credit graduation requirement starts with the class of 2021 (rising 10th graders) and beyond, as both districts have a 2-year waiver. Neither district has finalized plans for offering more credits beyond their current 6-period day/24 credit earning opportunities! YIKES

Come and learn more about this new requirement

See ‘Trickle Down Town’ at Tibbetts @ Tibbetts United Methodist Church
Apr 14 @ 11:30 am

Free movie by local filmmaker – ‘Trickle Down Town’ @ Tibbetts United Methodist Church
Sunday, April 14 @ 11:30 am

This 113 minute movie by local filmmaker Tomasz Biernacki is a thought-provoking documentary about the homeless crisis in Seattle. There is deft interweaving of in-depth stories of community members who are living the crisis on the streets with interviews of political leaders and community advocates, vivid images of the current state of affairs and a poignant examination of the roots of homelessness in the region. Biernacki paints a picture of a city struggling to come to grips with an unprecedented emergency.

You’ll find this production offers an alternative viewpoint to recent broadcasts and through the crisis it finds a few glimmers of hope. It features Camp Second Chance in West Seattle, a community that is successfully stabilizing the lives of its residents so they can work on moving forward.

Tibbetts is located at 3940 41st Ave SW. Light snacks will be available during the movie; we welcome all and encourage you to invite your family and friends!

The filmmaker has made Trickle Down Town available for free to any Puget Sound organization or group that wants to host a private or public screening. If you’re unable to attend the showing at Tibbetts or would like to see the trailer and more information, go to the Filmmaker’s website http://www.pechara.com/

Memorial Day poppy distribution at WS Thriftway
May 25 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Join American Legion Post 160 and ALA Unit 160 this Saturday May 25 and Sunday May 26 at the Morgan Junction Thriftway where members will distribute bright red poppies in honor of our fallen service members. The poppy has become an internationally recognized symbol of the lives sacrificed in war and the hope that none died in vain. One hundred percent of donations go directly to help local veterans.

On September 27, 1920, the poppy became the official flower of The American Legion family to memorialize the soldiers who fought and died during the war. In 1924, the distribution of poppies became a national program of The American Legion.

Each year, members of The American Legion family, led by the American Legion Auxiliary, distribute poppies with a request that the person receiving the flower make a donation to support the future of veterans, active-duty military personnel and their families with medical and financial needs.

Bystander Intervention Workshop @ Admiral Congregational Church
Sep 15 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Anti-Hate Alaska Junction works to reduce hate in our neighborhood by providing Bystander Intervention Workshops.

Visit our website at www.antihatealaskajunction.wordpress.com for information about hate in Seattle and in the US.

In this session, the bystander intervention workshop leader reviews brain science–including the reality of emotional responses, their effect on brain chemistry, and the resulting triggering of our fight/flight/freeze survival responses.

Participants apply new knowledge and practice new skills by running scenarios of hate-based interactions with the goals of de-escalating the situations and supporting the target. Working as an aggressor, a target, or an intervening bystander, participants learn by doing, not by listening.

The next workshop is Sunday, September 15, 2019, from 2 to 4 pm at Admiral Congregational Church, 4320 SW Hill Street, Seattle. There will also be an opportunity to have an extra practice session on Sunday, October 6.

The workshop is FREE, but donations are accepted.  To register, email antihate3@gmail.com or just walk in.
