Apr 15 @ 7:00 pm – 10:45 pm

Adults who loved or hated their high school proms have an opportunity to re-do them at Second Chance Prom on Saturday, April 15th, at 7 pm at the West Seattle Golf Club. The event benefits The Ruby Room, an organization that collects donated dresses and accessories for girls who otherwise can’t afford them to be able to attend their own prom.

Throughout the year, the Ruby Room collects donated dresses, jewelry and shoes to give to high school girls shopping for “prom season” in the spring. This organization provides its clients with a personal shopper to make sure their shopping experience is fun and successful. Founder Nyla Bitterman believes “everyone should be able attend their high school events, regardless of their ability to pay.” She has expressed this through the Ruby Room since its beginning in 2002.

Open to those 21 years and older, guests will travel “Back to the 90’s” through the music and bright décor. A raffle to win the crown of prom king or queen is held as one way to benefit the Ruby Room. The winners will receive a sash, crown and trophy. A DJ will be spinning throwback 90’s jams and will be taking requests. Photographers will have a booth to capture that fun prom pose to remember the night.

The Ruby Room will accept donations of dresses and accessories in good condition at the event. Tickets are $30 per person or $50 per couple, which will go to the Ruby Room to help pay for rent, utility costs and extra inventory as needed. Tickets are available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/second-chance-prom-tickets-31400026324?aff=es2.

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

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.

Seattle’s Urban Bird Treaty Signing and Birdwalk @ Lincoln Park North Playground

On Friday, May 5, Seattle will become an Urban Bird Treaty city.

Two events are scheduled:
Birdwalk: 10 – 10:40 am

Lincoln Park at the North Playground

For more info, call (206) 523-4483

Please join us for the signing of Seattle’s Urban Bird Treaty!

After extensive outreach and advocacy by Seattle Audubon and partners, Seattle’s city council passed a resolution to enter into an Urban Bird Treaty with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service. The Treaty partnership will protect birds in the Seattle area by developing programs to reduce hazards to migrating birds that travel along the Pacific Flyway, restoring habitat, and connecting residents and youth to nature within our city.

On May 5, the city and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will officially sign the treaty, an important milestone that recognizes Seattle’s role in protecting the Pacific Flyway. Seattle Audubon volunteers will lead a free birdwalk, one hour prior to the ceremony.

This work is a collaboration between Seattle Audubon, Audubon Washington, Heron Habitat Helpers, City of Seattle, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife.

“…[a] fine play…so concentrated and unflinching that at times it takes your breath away.” — Observer (London).

“A major play…thrilling, humane and timely.” —Times (London).

“…[a] big, brave, compassionate play about grief, revenge, forgiveness and bearing the unbearable.” — Guardian (London).

“Consistently surprising and even bravely comic…The almost thriller-like promise of the play’s climactic confrontation is like a time-bomb ticking in the back of your head.” — Independent (London).

Medieval Women’s Choir: ‘The White Lily’ concert preview @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
May 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

On Sunday, May 21, 2017, 2–3:30 pm, everyone is invited to the West Seattle (Admiral) Library’s preview of  “The White Lilly”.

Join Eric Mentzel and members of the Medieval Women’s Choir for a preview of their upcoming concert “The White Lily.” A perusal of medieval Marian texts yields a long list of honorific names for Mary, the mother of Jesus. She is the white lily, the shining star, the glorious mother of all. Songs and poems for Mary became so basic to medieval culture that they popped up everywhere: adopting the melodies of popular troubadour songs, inserted into preexisting liturgical music, and forming the basis of decidedly non-sacred love songs. This program of Marian music is a true cross-section of medieval music and a window into the medieval heart.

Library events and programs are free and open to the public. Registration is not required.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

The history of West Seattle, the Duwamish Peninsula, and the birthplace of Seattle comes alive in this series of monthly presentations with the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Before paved roads and cars, rail was king! In 1912, the Highland Park and Lake Burien Railroad electric streetcar line opened large land tracks in southwest Seattle and King County. Mike Bergman (President, Tacoma Chapter, National Railway Historical Society) will share maps and historic photos that reveal the elevated structure approaching downtown Seattle, the “runaway track” from Highland Park to the Duwamish River, and the many freight spurs serving local businesses and industries.

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

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Lincoln Park Nature Walk: Edible and Medicinal Plants @ Lincoln Park @ South Parking Lot
Jun 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Edible and Medicinal Plants of Lincoln Park
Sunday, June 11th, 3-5pm
Space is limited to 15.
From Jonathan Hover:

Edible and Medicinal Plants of Lincoln Park
Sunday, June 11th, 3-5pm
**We’ll meet at the parking lot at the south end of the park at 3pm**

Lincoln Park offers a fun variety of forest, shoreline, and metropolitan plants friends. Plants we’ll see include Huckleberries, Thimbleberries, False Solomon’s Seal, St. John’s Wort, Oregon Grape, Indian Plum, and many more!

We’ll talk about how to identify, ethically gather, prepare, and use the medicinal plants we’ll encounter. I provide handouts with the common and scientific names, preparations, and uses of the most of the plants we’ll see, as well as a glossary of herbal terms I’ll be using, and botanical illustrations describing leaf shapes and types, and flower parts and types for context.

Make sure to bring something to write with, comfortable shoes, and water!

I grew up in southeast Seattle, and have always had a passion for the natural world. I attended the Intro to Western Herbalism program at the Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies in Boulder, Co. from 1999-2000, and received a certificate in Advanced Herbalism from the North American Institute of Medical Herbalism in Boulder, Co. in 2003. I’ve studied the uses of northwest native plants for the last 15 years, and have led plant walks professionally on Orcas Island, Seattle, and the Cascades. I have found that being able to identify and know the uses of the plants around me has changed the way I view the world, giving me a deeper sense of connection with this beautiful place we live, and I love to share that with others.

I want my walks to be accessible and affordable to all who are interested. $15 sliding scale, open to trades, nobody refused for lack of money, children 13 and under free. The event will be limited to 15 people. You can reserve a spot through my paypal. Pay any amount and comment on how many spots you’d like, or email me at evergreenplantwalks@gmail to request a spot or with any questions.

Combine knowledge with action as we work together to clear this beautiful space of harmful species that overtakes an area. Many of you might already have this experience in your own backyard!

There will be more events to come where we gradually transform and maintain Westcrest and make it a great public space for everyone to enjoy. Let us know of any questions, hope to see you out there!

PARK: South parking lot off of SW Henderson St, next to the dog park.

School Bake Sale for Hurricane Relief @ West Seattle Montessori School & Academy
Oct 16 @ 8:00 am – 9:00 am

Our middle school students are organizing a plan to help contribute to some of the rebuilding in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. They researched and found a Montessori school similar to ours in San Juan called La Casa Montessori. This school has 130 students and operates a preprimary through elementary age Montessori program. Their school building has been hit with major structural damage, and a loss of a portion of their roof. Our Spanish teacher Suely called the director of the school and was able to reach her on the first day she had phone service after the hurricane. She said several of her students’ families have lost everything, and that the destruction was everywhere. She was very grateful and encouraged by our call from one Montessori school to another in this extremely challenging time.

Throughout October we will be holding bake sales every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 am-9 am near the school arrival drop off area (11215 15th Ave SW) (NO Sales on October 13 or October 27 as middle school is not in session). Breakfast goodies will be available for purchase for $3 (or more if you’d like to donate more!). All proceeds will go directly to La Casa Montessori via their GoFundMe campaign.

Here is a link to their Facebook page as well.

There are Montessori schools worldwide, and this opportunity to connect with our own Global Montessori Community is a powerful reminder that all we need to do is extend ourselves just a little bit to make a life changing difference. Our students are truly leading mindfully and thinking globally with this fundraiser, and we thank you for your help in advance!

Neighborhood House invites you to Caravale – an evening to explore different cultures and celebrate community.

This year, we will experience the beauty, resilience and joy of Vietnam through art, music and cuisine. “Travel” with us to this intriguing, coastal country for a remarkable night of conversation, entertainment and inspiration.

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.

Friday, October 27, 2017 | 6:30–10:30 pm.
Palace Ballroom | Seattle, WA

Caravale is an annual benefit for Neighborhood House. Funds raised support programs serving immigrants and refugees living in King County.

Your gift of $250, $500 or more will touch the lives of children and families throughout our region. Here are some examples of how:
•$250 pays for a year of tutoring for a child learning English, promoting success in school.
•$500 pays for a 2-hour college-readiness seminar for 5 first-time students pursuing a degree.
•$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.

Caravale tickets cost $125 per person, and include all food and beverages. Purchase yours here or call Ward Wright at 206.461.8430, ext. 2053 to reserve a seat at this bountiful table. If you would like to host a table for eight or 10 guests, please phone Ward to learn about options and pricing.

Would your company or organization like to sponsor Caravale? Please read our sponsorship chart for opportunities, or contact Kae Saeteurn at kaes@nhwa.org or 206.461.8430, ext. 2052 for details.

Our Spanish teacher Suely called the director of the school and was able to reach her on the first day she had phone service after the hurricane. She said several of her students’ families have lost everything, and that the destruction was everywhere. She was very grateful and encouraged by our call from one Montessori school to another in this extremely challenging time.

Throughout October we will be holding bake sales every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 am-9 am near the school arrival drop off area (11215 15th Ave SW) (NO Sales on October 13 or October 27 as middle school is not in session). Breakfast goodies will be available for purchase for $3 (or more if you’d like to donate more!). All proceeds will go directly to La Casa Montessori via their GoFundMe campaign.

Here is a link to their Facebook page as well.

There are Montessori schools worldwide, and this opportunity to connect with our own Global Montessori Community is a powerful reminder that all we need to do is extend ourselves just a little bit to make a life changing difference. Our students are truly leading mindfully and thinking globally with this fundraiser, and we thank you for your help in advance!

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.

Susan Goodwin pop-up at CAPERS
Mar 17 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Susan Goodwin jewelry popup, Sat., March 17, 12–6 p.m. at CAPERS Home Seattle.

Meet this beloved Northwest jewelry artist in person, known for her one-of-a-kind pieces and passion for pearls.

“Susan definitely has a following,” said CAPERS owner Lisa Myers. “It’s really a treat to have her at a trunk show like this, as it’s rare that she does any in-persons.”

Born in Kirkland, Goodwin traveled the world before returning to her native Seattle area and settling here until 2010. Her journey took her to multiple states and many diverse careers — working on a horse ranch in Utah and making granola in Minneapolis among them — before becoming a tour de force in the world of pearl jewelry and precious stone showpieces.

It all began in the 1980s when a friend sparked her artistic spirit with some ancient glass trade beads. “I loved the history behind them but found their form a bit rugged,” said the artist.

According to Goodwin, the ‘80s were a time when styles were outrageous and she spent hours in her basement, blow torch in hand, trying to perfect crafting her own glass beads. As her skills grew, so did her own tastes, eventually leading her to swap glass beads for the inner fire and magical energy of precious stones.

Then in the 1990s, her business skyrocketed and she expanded her line, becoming widespread in high-end department stores, museum gift shops and boutiques in America, Asia, and Europe.

But success didn’t keep her from staying up on changing jewelry styles. Rather, she developed a look that is perhaps best defined as a blend of timeless classics with a nod to current fashion trends. Drawing inspiration from the glamour of the 1950s, she uses influences from the natural world such as pearls.

“There isn’t a woman alive who doesn’t shine brighter while wearing a strand of pearls,” said Goodwin. “Pearls frame a face like nothing else.” She noted pearls are often utilized as reward for life’s passages—which seems especially poetic when you consider pearls symbolize an irritant becoming something prized and beautiful. Each has its own character, shape, color and luster. “Once you’ve bonded with a pearl, there’s precious little that can take its place,” said the current Willamette Valley, Ore., resident.

Today, Goodwin pursues what she loves most, producing custom works or one-of- a-kind showpieces for her loyal clientele. Additionally, she designs a limited line of boutique and museum pieces and enjoys the fresh food and local wines found in the Willamette Valley.

This Pow Wow began when we saw a need in the community to help support the Native youth. Many children in our area are Native foster children or “urban” Native children. Many of them not knowing their culture or feeling the need to connect further with it. This Pow Wow allows them to dance, sing and further connect with the Native traditions. It also brings our community together to share in this celebration!

26th Annual Fairmount Ravine Restoration & Cleanup – UPDATE
Mar 31 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

The Fairmount Ravine Preservation Group will sponsor the 26th Annual Spring Cleanup and Reforestation of Fairmount Ravine, Saturday March 31st at 8:30 am. Meet at top of ravine (Forest St. and Fairmount Ave.).

This year’s cleanup will focus more on removing ivy from trees in the ravine and cleaning sidewalks on the Admiral Bridge. We will also remove garbage and debris under the bridge, but this work is already 90% completed, thanks to a very industrious and concerned local resident.

Wear boots and gloves. Bring a pruning saw and/or large loppers if interested in removing ivy from trees in the ravine. Bring a flat shovel and push broom to clean bridge sidewalks.

Delicious beverages and food from our local merchants will be provided.

We extend a special invitation to those who use the ravine to access the waterfront; please donate a couple of hours of your time to keep this greenbelt clean, healthy and pristine.
