(ANA’s Dave Weitzel and president Katy Walum at the post-4th of July Parade concession stand)
We covered another community-council meeting last night – the Admiral Neighborhood Association. Summer events were at the heart of the discussion. For one, the ANA-presented Summer Concerts at Hiawatha (co-sponsored by WSB) series starts July 26th, and while the music lineup (see it here) has been final for a while – and the poster’s now out:
And the emcee lineup has just been announced: Mayor Mike McGinn will be MC for the Caspar Babypants show on August 23, and (acting) Parks Superintendent Christopher Williams will MC The Braxmatics‘ show on Alki Beach on August 16th. The other four concerts will be emceed by West Seattle broadcast personalities – each one by either Marty Riemer or Jim Dever. ANA also plans to be in the West Seattle American Legion Post 160 Grand Parade on July 21st (and president Katy Walum mentioned that the Admiral merchants would be, too). And they’re pleased with how their concession sales went after the West Seattle 4th of July Kids’ Parade a week ago – bringing in about $900 for the group (which is nonprofit and all-volunteer), including sales of 20 of their distinctive Admiral-logo T-shirts. P.S. ANA is taking August off, as many community councils do – keep an eye on their website for word of the September meeting.
