Weekend Guide: 'Pigs & Pipes' fundraiser, memorial for BHS teacher, and get down 'n' dirty in Crown Hill Glen

'Pigs & Pipes' Fundraiser

The Old Pequliar Public House will be hosting the annual Pigs & Pipes fundraiser, which helps to send the Seattle Fire Department Pipes & Drums band to Colorado Springs, Colo. to partake in the IAFF Fallen Firefighter Memorial. Sadly, firefighters will be honoring and putting to the wall three firefighters who passed away from cancer that they contracted on the job, according to the event info.

The event is just as it sounds. There will be pigs. And not only pigs (roasted on site, by the way), but macaroni salad, coleslaw and beans, rounding out what sounds like a fantastic BBQ dinner. Also, $4 micro-brew pints.

Organizers ask that you purchase tickets ($20) in advance.

Saturday, 12-6 p.m., The Old Pequliar Public House, 1722 Market St, 21+ more info

Memorial for Megan Vogel, BHS teacher

Join the community as they honor and remember Golden Apple Award winning BHS teacher Megan Vogel, who passed away on Monday after a two year fight with cancer. She was a well loved teacher and had a profound impact on the hundreds of students who went through her classes.

The memorial will take place 1-3 p.m. in the BHS Performing Arts Center. More info

Crown Hill Glen Work Party

Nothing says "weekend fun" like getting down and dirty outside and making out outdoors more beautiful. And that's exactly what community members plan to do at the Crown Hill Glen, the little park at the end of 19th and 89th -- so give a hand, or a shovel, and help trim overgrown greenery, spread mulch, pull weeds and/or take out blackberries.

Organizers ask that you bring gloves, rakes or shovels if you can. Or just yourself. Kids are welcome, too. Walk if you can because parking is limited.

Saturday, Aug. 25, 10-2 p.m. 8746 19th Ave. N.W., for more info call Amy at 206-225-5531.
