Longfellow Creek celebration
Nov 5 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

From Seattle Parks:

Many community members, from organizations to individuals, work hard to keep Longfellow Creek healthy and accessible. Twenty-five years ago, two community plans laid out a vision for improved access to Longfellow creek. The Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail was developed by neighbors in partnership with government, businesses, non-profits, and schools. Formal tours and stewardship opportunities—like planting trees and monitoring water quality and salmon—provide hands-on connections to the Creek. Many schools in the area participate in arts, environmental education, and other programs along the Creek.

Longfellow Creek is a natural link among communities throughout Delridge, High Point, and Westwood neighborhoods. While many consider it a natural wonder, the Creek’s benefit to people, plants, and animals can be hidden from view. To bring light to Longfellow Creek’s contributions, the City of Seattle and community partners are hosting a celebration of the creek and we want you to join!

Celebrate 25+ years at the Creek

Bring your neighbors, friends, and family to celebrate over 25 years of community engagement with Longfellow Creek on November 5, 2017. The fun will kick off at the corner of 28th Ave SW and SW Dakota St* and run from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. All ages are encouraged to come participate in activities like exploring the Dragonfly Pavilion and Salmon Bone Bridge, caring for garden beds, creating a postcard inspired by Longfellow Creek, looking inside a salmon, and enjoying guided nature walks.

Please RSVP at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LongfellowCreek
Questions? Email Sheryl.Shapiro@Seattle.gov or call (206) 615-1443.
*In case of heavy rain, the celebration will be relocated to the Delridge Community Center (4501 Delridge Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106).

Dragonfly Pavilion and Salmon Bone Bridge

Let your imagination soar when you see the giant salmon bones and 16-foot-tall dragonfly—two copper sculptures on the Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail.

Postcards from the Creek

Meet your creek is an art project by Vaughn Bell, an artist who lives in the creek watershed. Create unique, hand-made postcards based on your observations and understanding of Longfellow Creek. You will get the chance to mail the postcard to a friend or loved one, or to donate it to the postcard archive which may be displayed in the community. Images of the postcards will be shared online at the Meet Your Creek blog.

Salmon: Look inside

You may know how a fish swims, but do you know how it eats, breathes, and reproduces? You’ll discover the swimming, eating, breathing, and reproducing systems—and you can touch them (if you want to)!

Nature Walk

Local naturalists will guide you through the park and open spaces on a flat, wide trail. See and learn about the creek, salmon, and the wide variety of plants and their historical uses.

A reading by Steve Adelson ‘Apocalypse at Little Bighorn-The Demise of a Culture’ @ C&P Coffee Co.
Nov 8 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Veteran Park Ranger, author and documentary producer Steve Adelson presents a reading: “Apocalypse At Little Bighorn -The Demise Of A Culture”.

This coffee house presentation will examine the erosion of the native Sioux and Cheyenne culture that culminated at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, later to become legendarily know as “Custer’s Last Stand”. In reality, it was not only his last stand, but the last gasp of Indian resistance against Euro-American encroachment on the northern plains.

Adelson will be examining this epic confrontation and the characters and events that shaped this story. A story that still haunts the American consciousness even today.

The lives of Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, Gall, Major Marcus Reno and Captain Frederick Benteen are some of the individuals highlighted in the discussion.

Adelson, a West Seattle graduate, is a prolific writer and his book “Little Bighorn; Voices From A Distant Wind” will be available for purchase. In addition, his documentary, “Contested Ground” is included with an autographed copy of the book.

Adelson has presented to thousands of visitors at Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument in southeast Montana. He has been a lecturer on the History Channel, C-Span, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel and other media productions.
You can examine his work at his website.

Delridge discussion of RapidRide H Line planning with Metro and DNDC @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Jan 17 @ 5:00 pm – 8:30 pm

From Delridge Neighborhoods District Council chair Mat McBride:

I’m pleased to announce that our outreach to SDOT and Metro to discuss and collaborate on the Rapid Ride H line through Delridge has resulted in a meeting on January 17th at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.

Metro and SDOT will host a drop-in session from 5:00-6:30 pm, with a DNDC hosted meeting to follow at 7:00 (30 minutes will be given to reset the room and otherwise recharge after the drop-in session). This will be the only DNDC meeting in January. Other than the change in venue, which was specifically designed to provide access to transit riders along the Delridge corridor, this meeting falls on our regular time and date. There will be no specific agenda for this meeting, as we have only one topic – to review and provide input on design elements and implementation.

White Center Repair Time fix-it
Saturday, March 24, 2018, 9:30 am-12:30 pm
White Center Community Center gym
1321 SW 102nd

Bring in your small household items and clothing, and our experienced “fixers” will try to repair and mend them. Free!

With these repair events, we aim to keep stuff out of the landfill, conserve resources and save you money!

You must be present during the repair. There is no assurance an item can be fixed, or that attempting to fix it won’t break it even more.

Please only bring items small enough to be easily carried in by one person. Do not bring any items that are leaking, dangerous, contain gasoline, or have a strong odor. Clothing and other textiles you bring in for mending should be washed first.

Please sign up in advance if possible to let us know what you plan to bring, so our fixers can be prepared. For specialized repairs (which many are), please bring any specific parts or materials needed for your repair.

To sign up or if you have questions about any King County repair events, please contact Tom Watson by e-mail or at 206-477-4481. Thanks!

Event: West Seattle Chamber Luncheon – Needle Cleanup, Graffiti and Illegal Dumping – SPU Speaks Out

“Tracy Cramer, Lead Clean City Inspector housed in Seattle Public Utilities, is a real hands on, down-to-earth person who knows and is excited about her program”, reported Jim Guenther. “Her area of emphasis is needles, graffiti and illegal dumping, which I believe impacts our business community and West Seattle in general. ​She describes the program very well, including an explanation of the reporting system. This system is said to be in the implementation stage, which Tracy refers to as ‘alpha’. Her message is not to tell us what we must do, but to help us in addressing these problems.”

•Sharps, yes we are talking needle cleanup

•Graffiti on private property

•​Illegal dumping

Join us for lunch on April 12th for an opportunity to connect with other business professionals and talk about the impact on your business and West Seattle.

Haunted Hike

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

16030 Sylvester Road SW

Burien, WA

(Drive behind Sylvester Middle School)

5:30-8:30 pm

Boy Scout Troop 360 (Lake Burien Presbyterian Church) is hosting this great family event. Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and other community groups from across the region, are coming together to offer a haunted hike this Saturday, October 13, for all kids and their families in the West Seattle area. The cost is $2 per person. There will be Halloween-themed displays and activities along the trails throughout this beautiful, forested park.

Everyone should bring a flashlight to help as they walk from display to display because the trails can be very dark. There will also be Halloween treats available at many of the displays. Roasting monkey brains that strangely look a lot like marshmallows will occur as well. The kids will have lots of fun, and this event is a great way to learn more about the many Scouting youth programs that are available to families in the area.

And the rumors that a 10-foot tall T-Rex skeleton will be roving the park in search of Cub Scouts to eat may be true. But our hero Boy Scouts, using spears, will be protecting all kids from this largest carnivore in King County. Listen for the roaring as you start your hike.

Free community dinner @ High Point Community Center

Free dinner every Sunday night in West Seattle!

Everyone is welcome at High Point Community Dinner!

We gather, along with our volunteers, every Sunday night to eat dinner together and hear a story about Jesus. With an informal setting that centers around the meal and conversation, everyone is welcome to come just for the meal, or to stay longer to hear the talk and have a chance to discuss with friends.

The dinner is complemented by art and music! We often have an artist doing live paintings, a kids’ art table, and live music.

Tie One On Tuesdays: Fly-tying at Emerald Water Anglers
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for fly tying and beer at Emerald Water Anglers!

Dark and rainy days mean fly tying season is upon us. So join our guides, staff, and guest tyers as we grab our favorite brew and teach a variety of patterns for trout, steelhead, and the Puget Sound. Don’t miss out as these classes are a ton of fun and fill up fast!

We are making some exciting changes to the fly tying classes this year. As you will see, we have invited several guest tyers to teach this year, and each event is posted with the name of the fly, the instructor, and the difficulty so you will be able to pick and chose which evenings you would like to attend based on your interest and skill level. Please use the links (below) to sign up for each class. Space is limited; therefore, only those who have completed the online payment process will be included. – $20/BYOB

Thank you for all the support we have had for these tying classes. As a shop, we couldn’t be more excited about the growing community of fly tyers!
