Pluto-flyby ‘Phone Home’ event @ High Point Library
Jul 14 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

From Alice Enevoldsen, West Seattle-residing NASA Solar System Ambassador and astronomy writer:

What: Plutopalooza Phone Home!
When: Tuesday, July 14, 2015, 5–7 pm
Where: High Point Branch Library, 3411 SW Raymond
Who: Everyone welcome, as usual. (Themed craft activity for children approximately ages 3-14, short talk about New Horizons aimed at upper elementary through adult, and NASA TV phone home broadcast for everyone.) Hosted by “West Seattle’s Own” NASA Solar System Ambassador Alice Enevoldsen.

At 4:49 am on July 14th, New Horizons spacecraft will make history as it flies past Pluto, after a journey of more than nine years and 3 billion miles. For much of the day the New Horizons spacecraft will be out of communication with mission control as it gathers data on Pluto and its moons.

At 6:02 pm, on that same day, the spacecraft is scheduled to “phone home” confirming that it completed the rendezvous. This is the nailbiting moment of suspense that we will watch together during the event at the High Point Branch.

While we are waiting for the signal, there will be Pluto-themed activities for kids ages 3 and up, Alice will give a short presentation on the New Horizons mission appropriate for ages 9 through adult, and will be available to interpret the broadcast events as well as answer questions.

P.S. If you want to build a model of the New Horizons craft and bring it with you to the event, I would love to see it. You can also post your West Seattle PlutoTime photos to social media, and tag me: @AlicesAstroInfo.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required.

* Alice also writes periodic Skies Over West Seattle updates for WSB, with advance alerts and info about some of what you’ll see in the sky, including eclipses, planetary conjunctions, meteor showers, and more – they’re archived here.

We’ll end with Clay Eals, Executive Director of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, interviewing these West Seattle locals:

· Larry Pierce – Larry’s history with the Y goes back to his great grandfather, Laurence Colman, a lifelong YMCA leader who started the Fauntleroy YMCA and Camp Colman. In addition to discussing his family’s own involvement, he will highlight the little-known efforts of locals in the difficult times of the 1930s and 1940s.

· Ann Adkins – Ann grew up being heavily involved in Camp Fire Girls, which started in the YMCA, and then took her toddler daughter to learn to swim at the West Seattle YMCA. She soon began volunteering to teach swim lessons and retired after 40 years leading Aquatics at the West Seattle YMCA.

· Bruce Davis – Bruce is the owner of the Junction True Value Hardware and grew up in West Seattle. He spent many happy hours staying out of trouble at the YMCA. Bruce has served on the West Seattle & Fauntleroy YMCA Board for more than a decade.

· Ruthie Waid – Ruthie is known by many from her years as a teacher in Seattle Public Schools, including stints at Lafayette and E.C. Hughes. She swam her way through Y Aquatics programs from Tadpoles to Dolphins and volunteered in the bag room at the old West Seattle YMCA pool.

Want to know more? Come have some cake :)

Our objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.

A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.

Our Death Cafes are always offered:
– On a not for profit basis
– In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
– With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
– Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

Leave Behind More Than Memories’: RSVP by April 10 for FREE West Seattle Will Planning Seminar

Monday, April 17, 2017
11 a.m.-1 p.m.

2017 04-11 will seminar graphicWhat kind of a legacy do you want to leave behind? Significant change in our society can only come through sustained effort and commitment. Your legacy can contribute to that change in our community.
In our society’s legal system, the ability to direct your legacy requires a last will and testament. It is estimated that nearly 70 percent of all Americans are unable to leave the legacy they desire because they do not have a legal will.

You may have questions such as: Who needs a will? What makes a will valid? Whom should I name as an executor? How often should I review my will? Please join us to have these and many more questions answered about how you can create a will that will help you leave behind more than memories.

Seattle Warrior’s Call: Healing Through Service @ Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center
Apr 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

VeteransRespond and Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center are proud to present, “Seattle Warrior’s Call: Healing Through Service”, where attendees will be informed, inspired, energized and empowered to join the fight to protect our water, environment, people, and future generations of all species.

The event will feature brave warriors who are veterans of both the US Armed Services and of the Standing Rock Movement. Joseph George, an Air Force Veteran; Brandee Paisano, a US Navy Veteran and Laguna Pueblo Native; and Mark Sanderson, a US Army Veteran and recipient of the Purple Heart, will be among the powerful speakers telling their stories.

Opening ceremony and prayer will be led by members of the Duwamish Tribe, including Ken Workman, and Paul Wagner, with speaking from Raymond Kingfisher as well.

As sworn defenders of our country, the veterans of VeteransRespond felt called to support environmental rights, and Native Lands. That call to action has become a movement, a journey to ongoing community activism and worldwide healing. They are proud to share their personal journeys at this very special event.

Join for an Inspiring and Unforgettable Evening
Friday, April 21, 2017
Doors open at 7:00 PM.
Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center
4705 Marginal Way SW

Admission is FREE and open to the public.

The space is wheelchair accessible.

About VeteransRespond:
VeteransRespond is a service organization founded in December 2016 by disabled Veterans who were part of the advance team at Standing Rock.  VeteransRespond works to organize and coordinate highly trained Veteran volunteers to provide relief and service work in environmental and man-made disaster sites all across the United States. The organization was born out of the Standing Rock movement, which saw more than 4,000 veterans mobilize to Camp Oceti in defense of the Water Protectors and those standing against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

DAPL, a 1,172-mile pipeline to transport crude oil across the Midwestern US, jeopardizes the drinking water of millions of Americans while simultaneously desecrating the sacred ground of the Lakota/Sioux nation. The veterans of VeteransRespond believe wholeheartedly that DAPL must be opposed in accordance with their oaths to protect America from enemies both foreign and domestic.

WSHS ’13th Year Promise Scholarship’ Student Showcase @ West Seattle High School
May 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

West Seattle High School (WSHS) invites parents and community members to attend “Career Connections: A Student Showcase,” on Thursday May 25, from 6-8pm at WSHS’s The Commons.

Over 100 students from WSHS’s Career Tech Education Department will share their creations with parents, Seattle Public Schools administrators, South Seattle College (SSC) , (WSB Spsonsor) faculty and staff, and community members.

The WSHS Jazz Band will provide music and culinary students will provide food.

At 6:20 pm, WSHS Principal Ruth Medsker will address students and SSC’s Julius Moss, 13th Year Promise Scholarship assistant director, will share information on the college scholarship and how WSHS tech students can prepare to take part in the program.

West Seattle High School (WSHS) will hold their “Career Connections: A Student Showcase” event on Thursday, May 25, where students in the Career Tech Education Department will showcase their creations in professional and technical fields, ranging from IT to culinary arts and automotive technology. Deans from South Seattle College’s  professional and technical career training programs and 13th Year Promise Scholarship staff will attend the showcase to talk with students about their career aspirations and provide details on the scholarship.

South’s 13th Year Promise Scholarship, which provides one year of tuition-free college and college success support services to graduating seniors from area high schools, is expanding to include WSHS starting with their Class of 2018. South offers numerous professional and technical career training programs (in addition to academic transfer programs) that match up well with WSHS’s Career Tech Education Department.

“WSHS has an extensive Career Tech Education Department that approaches teaching and learning from hands-on, project-based instruction,” said Helen Maynard, Career Center Specialist at WSHS. “We are unique in the (Seattle Public Schools) District because we offer a variety of opportunities for students to identify and launch careers in the professional and technical fields such as CAD design, woodworking, culinary, IT, auto mechanics, photography, music, health and human services, and business.”

With the 13th Year Promise Scholarship becoming available to WSHS graduates in 2018 and beyond, students interested in professional and technical fields will have the opportunity to continue their training at South with their first year of tuition covered by the scholarship.

Conversation & Film on Gender Discrimination @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center

Conversation & Film on Gender Discrimination presented by Southwest Youth and Family Services in partnership with Kent Youth and Family Services. July 11, 2017 @ 6 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge Way SW.

Join SWYFS for a conversation and film on gender discrimination, July 11, 2017 @ 6 pm.

We have all seen discrimination in many forms in our lives and our communities, and discrimination based on gender occurs daily in countless situations and circumstances. While there have been significant steps forward on gender equity, there is still a desperate need for more work to be done. We would like to invite you to be a part of our discussion about gender discrimination as it exists in our community, watch a film highlighting an example from our own history and work together to create a better path through it for ourselves, our neighbors and our future generation. On Tuesday, July 11 (6pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle), students and staff from SWYFS will facilitate a discussion surrounding the film “Anita” and give you the opportunity to learn a bit more about programming at SWYFS, as well as an opportunity to support and get involved with our efforts.

This event is the first of two community conversations, in partnership with Kent Youth and Family Services. The second event will be held in Kent on August 9 and will discuss human trafficking. The registration link below will allow you to register for one or both events (free admission). A light dinner and drinks will be served. We ask you to come with an open mind and your thoughts on addressing these issues in our communities.

Thank you for your commitment to equity for all in our community. We look forward to this discussion with you.
Register for the Next Up Series on July 11 here.

FRED Talks at Kol HaNeshamah: Stories from remarkable volunteers in our midst
Nov 18 @ 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

You’ve heard of TED Talks? Kol HaNeshamah, West Seattle’s progressive Jewish community, presents FRED Talks: Fresh, Relevant, Educational and Dynamic!

Join us Saturday, November 18, 12:30-2 pm at Kol HaNeshamah / Alki UCC, 6115 SW Hinds, for our eighth fascinating FRED event. This month, our FRED talks will revolve around the theme: “For Good”

Because I knew you, I have been changed For Good:
Stories from remarkable volunteers in our midst 12:30-2 pm

If you’ve seen the musical, Wicked, you are familiar with the song, “For Good” in which the two witches say they have been changed, for good. Join us for our next FRED event where we’re featuring a few of our KHN members who have been volunteering to change our corner of the world for good.

Craig Greenberg is an airplane pilot with Angel Flight, a group of volunteers who fly their own planes and pay for flight costs to help families make critical journeys. Craig will share some of these heroic stories.

Everyone knows breastmilk is the most superior food for babies, but breastfeeding doesn’t necessarily come easy to everyone. Betsy Hoffmeister has spent more than 15 years as a volunteer leader and an on-call specialist for La Leche League, an international organization with the sole purpose of helping familues and their babies.

Henry, a clever canine and certified therapy dog lives with Lou and Janet Manuta and volunteers by bringing joy to people of all ages. He visits schoolkids, seniors and so many others, sharing his tricks. Henry has agreed to do some tricks while Lou talks about how Henry got so good at what he does.

Refreshments will be served in the lobby prior to the FRED talks.

SUGGESTED ADMISSION: $18 for adults, $12 for seniors & students

This event kicks off KHN’s Annual Giving Campaign. Kol HaNeshamah is a nonprofit

corporation recognized under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS tax code.

Opened in 2009, the Longhouse is a traditional cedar post and beam structure designed in the Puget Salish Longhouse style. It houses a Native Art Gallery, Duwamish History Museum, Gift Shop, Duwamish Tribal Offices, and traditional Longhouse. As in ancient times, Longhouse is the site where tribal business is conducted and cultural & educational events are held. It is the first Duwamish Longhouse built since the last one was burned down in West Seattle in 1894 to push the Duwamish off their land. In 1851, there were over 90 Duwamish Longhouses.

Open Tuesday–Saturday, 10 am-5 pm.
