A FREE, scavenger hunt style ‘Family Fun Run’ race for runners and walkers of all ages will be held on Thursday, Aug. 25 at Town Square Park.
The run will run from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the park, located at SW 152nd Street and 5th Place SW.
Get ready because the 60-minute dash starts at 6:30 p.m. when the map of local businesses holding raffle tickets is revealed. The goal is to get as many raffle tickets as possible and return before 7:30 p.m. when the raffle starts.
Raffle prizes will be awarded to both kids and adults.
Volunteers are needed for a restoration event at Miller Creek’s S 144th Street Trail in Burien on Saturday, Aug. 27.
The Miller-Walker Basin has two new Habitat Stewards – Ashley and Sheila – who will be hosting work parties along the Miller Creek trail this summer…and all are invited.
Join your neighbors to restore the forest near Miller Creek, continuing the work that has been done by previous volunteers since 2007.
“Get outside and get some exercise while improving the health of the creek!”
No experience is necessary, and gloves, tools, and light refreshments are provided. Please RSVP so we can plan for tools and snacks.
Saturday, Aug. 27, 9:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
WHERE: Park at the trail parking lot along Des Moines Memorial Drive just south of S. 144th St. in Burien. Walk west along the Miller Creek trail, cross S. 144th Way, and look for us next to the S 144th Street Miller Creek Trail on the right.
WHAT: Work with volunteer Habitat Stewards to remove invasive weeds, spread wood chip mulch, and prepare the area for planting more native plants this fall.
WHAT TO BRING:
Clothing that will protect you from the sun, cold, rain, and blackberry thorns (and that you don’t mind getting dirty)
Filled water bottle, gloves if you have them
IMPORTANT NOTE: This park does not have a restroom – please plan ahead.
The incredibly innovative comedy short “M.O.P.Z.” – which was filmed mostly at Burien’s Sunnydale Elementary School – will be featured at the next Burien Film Office Happy Hour, on Tuesday, Sept. 6.
The free, open, all-ages event will run from 5:30–7 p.m. at the Tin Theater, located at 923 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien. The 11-minute film will be screened at 6 p.m., and will be followed by a Q&A presentation by some of the filmmakers.
“M.O.P.Z.” tells the story of a lazy janitor who builds a robot to do his dirty work. Only the story is told in fast-forward in just 11 minutes! Imagine watching a 30-minute Canadian 1990s sitcom on a VHS player that’s stuck in fast-forward, including with sped-up audio and tons of great sight gags, fake commercials and incredibly hilarious scenes.
Directed by Todd Rohal, and Written by Rohal and Benjamin Kasulke, “M.O.P.Z.” has been featured on the Adult Swim cable network. It was Executive Produced by Laccey Levitt and Mischa Jakupcak, and Co-Produced by Megan Griffiths.
The production was shot Jan. 9-17, 2016, with Gevin Booth serving as the Art Director (full credits are here).
This will be a very fun, funny and informative night, which you won’t want to miss – and we recommend watching the film at least once all the way through before attending:
