In early August of 2007, an extraordinary and quite unexpected harbor seal baby boom hit Alki Beach and the shores of West Seattle. In the ensuing scramble to protect these vulnerable pups, writer Brenda Peterson and photographer Robin Lindsey came together as strangers, forging an enduring alliance and a grass-roots group of concerned West Seattle residents that would become the full-fledged and high-profile Marine Mammal Stranding Network, Seal Sitters.
Seal Sitters invites you to a special celebration with our founders. Hear Robin and Brenda share their many stories in a lively setting – with an opportunity to ask any and all questions about their experiences and Seal Sitters’ history.
Robin will be stepping back from her full-time Seal Sitters role. After 13 years with Seal Sitters, she would love the opportunity to show her appreciation to colleagues, volunteers and members of the public who have shared not only their common passion to protect wildlife, but treasured friendship as well.

Each year a different school offering a Chinese program hosts Confucius Institute Day. It is Pathfinder’s turn this year. Our theme is learning about Chinese culture through sports and leisure.
We will start at 1:00 with a celebration of our Confucius classroom and a few kind words from our principal. The day will also feature performances by the Dearborn Park student lion dance team and various martial arts demonstrations. Following these presentations, families will be invited to participate in activities at various stations, including Chinese jump rope, Tai Chi, and more. As families move through the stations, they will earn stamps on their passports and Chinese coins!
We will also have a drawings for fun activity books provided by Beijing University Press.
A lunch of rice, noodles, and spicy chicken will be served from 2:30 to 3:30. We hope to see you all there.
