Upcoming events and announcements!

Thanks to those of you who attended last night’s meeting! Afterwards, we realized that we neglected to mention some upcoming events, so here goes:

    • 7/13-15:  West Seattle Summer Festival (our wonderful annual street fair). Community groups will be located together (not sure yet of the exact location). We’ll be there on Saturday (7/14) from 10 – 2, possibly other times as well; hope you’ll stop by!
    • 7/21:  Grand Parade. We’ve signed up to march in the parade with our cool new banner. Let us know if you’d like to join! We’ve never done this before; it would be great to have a huge contingent of BW Captains. The parade begins at 11 AM in Admiral, then heads south along California Ave SW.
    • 7/24:  WSBWCN meeting (4th Tuesdays). We normally don’t meet in July, but will most likely have an informal meeting for those who want to assemble materials for their Night Out events (similar to what we did this evening, for those who missed it).  Don’t show up, unless we confirm that this is a go…
    • 7/28-29:  Alki Art Fair. We’ll have a booth somewhere along the beach. Hope for sunshine! The fair runs from 10 – 6, Saturday and SundayTurns out that we will NOT have a booth at this event after all; they won’t have neighborhood organizations and community group booths.
    • 8/7:  Seattle Night Out (annually, each first Tuesday in August). These local events held throughout the city provide an excellent opportunity to meet your neighbors and build/strengthen your neighborhood Block Watch group.
    • 8/11:  Precinct Picnics (held at all 5 Seattle precincts). The SW Police Precinct always hosts a fun event with free food and entertainment; plus opportunities to meet the officers, learn about local community groups such as ours, and more!
    • 8/18:  Delridge Day. We’ll be doing outreach and handing out materials about personal safety, vehicle safety, etc.  Hope you’ll stop by!

We wanted to mention that you may be able to obtain a grant for your Night Out event if you’ve not done so previously. See the NEIGHBORHOOD Matching Fund (NMF) website for details. Small Sparks grants (up to $1000) can be applied for at any time. They also are great for small Block Watch projects such as street signs.

[Updated 6/27 to include times and links to more of these events.]

[Updated 7/18 – we will not be at the  Alki Art Fair after all.]
