That’s what it said on longtime community activist/volunteer Pete Spalding‘s birthday cake last night at the Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), where wife Kerry Hughes organized a surprise party:

Back in their home neighborhood of Pigeon Point, one of the trademark signposts held a tribute:

Pete has led the Pigeon Point Neighborhood Council multiple times, as well as chairing the citywide Parks and Green Spaces Levy OVersight Committee, serving on the board of the West Seattle Food Bank, and countless other councils/groups/projects. His awards include being honored as this year’s “Westsider of the Year” by the WS Chamber of Commerce.

  1. Happy Birthday Pete!! You’ll have to admit that Kerry was a crafty one in putting this together. Sorry I was unable to be there…was a little tied up Downtown. You may now want to start opening that AARP mail you’ve been receiving. Our Mayor sends his regards and best wishes as well! (I told him during the precinct tour Wednesday)
