Seattle City Council Positions 8, 9 candidates’ forum @ Highland Park Improvement Club
Jul 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Delridge Neighborhoods District Council, in partnership with the Highland Park Improvement Club will host a candidate forum for Seattle City Council Position 8 & 9 candidates on Tuesday, July 25th from 7-9 PM. This forum is intended to engage and inform the residents of the West Seattle Peninsula, who comprise roughly 1/7th of Seattle’s total voting population. This event is open to the public and the media.

The format is intentionally very simple – each candidate will be given 5 minutes and a microphone to present their platform. There will be no audience or panel questions during presentations, and once all presentations have finished candidates will be able to mingle with the audience. Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase, and an area will be set aside for adults who are accompanied by children.

Who: Seattle City Council Position 8 and 9 candidates
What: Candidate forum – 5 minute presentation followed by mingling with prospective constituents
Where: Highland Park Improvement Club – 1116 SW Holden
Why: Because voters shouldn’t look at a ballot and say “I have no idea who this is”
When: Tuesday, July 25th, from 7-9 pm

West Seattle Democratic Women: ‘Chasing Ice’ @ WS Golf Course
Jul 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Greetings Members, Supporters, and Friends of the West Seattle Democratic Women!

Summer is in full swing, and our next meeting will be an evening event, so if our daytime meetings conflict with your work schedules (or even if you come to the daytime meetings), we cordially invite you to make WSDW part of your summer by attending this meeting/social gathering! Since the specialty action work that our organization is currently focused on is Climate Change and Global Warming, this program will consist of the screening of CHASING ICE. This screening aligns with the work that our AEC (Awareness, Education, Climate Action) Committee has been immersed in for the past year-and-a-half; CHASING ICE is a beautifully shot, multiple-award-winning (including from Seattle Int’l Film Festival), critically and popularly acclaimed film that documents how global warming is impacting the planet. Here is the official trailer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIZTMVNBjc

We meet at the West Seattle Golf Course on Thursday, July 27th.

There will not be a Pre-Meeting Discussion led by Theresa McCormick on this evening.

There will not be a Postcard-Writing Campaign on this evening.

Registration begins at 6:00 pm with dinner service beginning at 6:15pm.

CHASING ICE screens at 6:30 pm and runs 75 minutes.

There will be a short discussion after the film, with input from our AEC Committee members as well as from some of our legislators and representatives who would be able to offer some perspective on specific actions we can take to combat the effects of global warming.

Meeting will adjourn no later than 8:30 pm.

Dinner is $15 for WSDW members and $20 for non-members; if you do not want to order dinner, the room charge (which includes dessert and coffee/tea only) is $7.50

If you are involved with an organization, social network, church, or other group with a membership, please spread the word far and wide about this event by forwarding this invitation to any and all of your networks! We are expecting a good turnout and, additionally, I have invited quite a few of our legislators, representatives as well as those seeking office, so that attendees can have the opportunity to find out more about their platforms and the relevant work they are doing in support of the environment!

Please RSVP to me directly by emailing me at werdachel@aol.com. Be sure to indicate if you want to order dinner or just have dessert & coffee/tea. Since we have to arrange the number of food orders with the Golf Course in advance, I must have your RSVP no later than end-of-day, Monday, July 24th to guarantee your meal reservation.

Award-winning chefs Tom Douglas and Matthew Dillon will prepare a multi-course feast of Vietnamese favorites, and a handcrafted cocktail will set the mood for a magical evening. A performance by local traditional musicians is sure to delight, and dancing follows dinner and a short program.

•$750 covers the cost of a citizenship application, helping someone reach a very special goal.
•$1,000 provides training for 90 parents of children in our early learning programs, teaching them about the school system and how to advocate for their child.
•$3,000 pays for a year of citizenship classes so that 15 people can learn English and prepare for the citizenship exam.
•$6,000 covers a year of job training and support so that an immigrant or refugee can begin a living wage career.

Supporters giving $1,000 or more per year will be welcomed into our exclusive Sparklight Circle and are invited to our popular Grillin’ with Dillon donor recognition event.

Learn about lesser-known West Seattle trails in the West Duwamish greenbelt, the largest urban forest in Seattle! Everyone and all ages are welcome. Parts of the trails are graveled and well-constructed; other parts are not formally maintained, so come prepared for possible muddy patches.

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.

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.

Whether your relationship with trees is a casual fling or a passionate affair, you will discover facts and hear stories about these marvelous plants that may change your perception of trees. The walk will explore the essence of the old growth forest that once covered most of the Puget Sound area to understand and appreciate our bond with this exceptional environment. During the walk we’ll learn key characteristics to aid in identifying many native trees. This is an interactive experience that encourages participation while respecting your perspective and shared wisdom. Meet at the Admiral Way entrance and be prepared for muddy trails and possible rainy weather. To register, contact John.Hasslinger@Seattle.gov or call 206-256-5403.

West Seattle Democratic Women – NOVEMBER 2018 PROGRAM @ Admiral UCC
Nov 15 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

For our meeting and program, I thought we could take in a breath and take in a movie with other WSDWers and neighbors, since we all deserve something inspiring and engaging, yet still relevant and informative!

As we move from election season into the holiday season, our November program, we will be a screening of “RBG”, the award-winning documentary about Supreme Court Justice and “pop icon” Ruth Bader Ginsburg! It is relevant and contemporary (#MeToo, Kavanaugh, Trump, etc.), and can be a great guide as we pledge to keep our eyes on the highest court in the land–and it is a film that movie-goers and critics alike are still raving about!

Also we are actively seeking Officers for our Executive Board and Committee Chairs. If you are looking for ways to get involved but don’t know what to do, this could be a wonderful way, with a low-key time commitment, to make a big difference in our organization and in our community! Please contact me (werdachel@aol.com) for more information!

Don’t forget to bring your unused, unopened sample- and hotel/travel-size items (shampoo/conditioner/lotion, lip balm, toothbrush/& paste, cosmetic samples, perfume samples, spa/facial masks, aromatherapy products, mani-pedi products, etc.) We are collecting them for our December Holiday Service Party! We will be filling over 100 goodie bags, so we need as many of these items as you can bring (Thank You!)

Here are the details for our November Meeting and Program:

Date: Thursday, November 15th

Time:
6:00 pm — Registration/ Social Time Begins
6:30 pm — Meeting Business
7:00 pm — Film Screening — RBG

Program Venue: Admiral Congregational UCC

Address: 4320 SW Hill St.

Please RSVP to (werdachel@aol.com) with your name and the names of any others coming with you as soon as possible, so that we can plan the program accordingly.
