West Seattle He~aid/White Center News Wednesday, July 30, 1997 9 AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD 6 ISt to efforts; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police com- munity rela- tions, and send a mes- sage to crimi- nals, letting them know neighbor- hoods are organized and fighting back. From 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. next Tues- day, residents are asked to lock their doors, turn on outside lights and spend the evening outside with neighbors and police. Many neigh- borhoods throughout the local area will be hosting a varitey of special events, such as block parties, potlucks, barbecue cookouts, ice cream and dessert socials. "We're accumulating a list of people from White Center, Shore- wood and Burien who are registered for the block night," says Roice. "This is a way of getting people out as a community to enhance awareness to what is going on in their neighborhoods." If you and your neighbors want to register for participation in this event, contact Officer Warren Roice at 296-3370. Officers and staff from the King County Police will stop by and visit with you and your neigh- bors. Trashing the trash The Community Improvement Committee of the White Center Chamber of Commerce wants your help in cleaning up the local com- munity. The committee divided the White Center business district into 10 sec- tions. Private citizens, organizations and businesses are needed to adopt a section and clean it once a year. The more participation, the more often each area can be cleaned. Each group will be assigned a month for cleanup and will be sup- plied with litter bags and a pass to the transfer station. The chamber is grateful to the groups and businesses that have already adopted a section. They are: Boys and Girls Club Keystone Club; Holy Family Catholic Church; La Mexicana Tortilla Fac- tory; Partners in Action for Teen Health (PATH); St. James Luther- an Church; Southwest "Little League; Westwood Christian Assembly of God and White Cen- ter Samoan Assembly of God. If you are interested in adopting a section, or would like more infor- mation, call chamber m.anager Vanesa van der Heyden at 763-4196 or stop by the chamber office at 1327 S.W. 102nd St. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Adventures in Alaska Leonard and Pat Krajewski had some memorable experiences dur- ing their vacation in Alaska. The trip was a gift from their daughter, Diane. The couple's 11-day cruise aboard the Holland America Line took them from Vancouver, B.C. to Seward, Alaska. From there, they were bused to Anchorage and took an 11 -hour train ride to Fairbanks. Some of the sights were breath- taking, like the eight glaciers they saw in College Fijord Bay at the end of Prince William Sound. There was one incident that will remain burned in their memory. At one point on the train, the tempera- ture reached 95 degrees, expanding the tracks at Denali National Park. On top of that, the air conditioning had to be turned off while the train was stopped. But the trip had many high points, too. "We saw lots of moose and musk- ox," Pat said. "And Leonard and I did gold panning and got $20 worth of gold nuggets at the El Dorado gold mine near Fairbanks,'" she added. "It was quite a thrill, being our first cruise and Leonard's first trip to Alaska," Pat said. The seasoned travelers are happy to say that now, "We've been to every state in the union."
