“This is the 79th year for West Seattle Hi-Yu and it could be the last.” Those words of warning come from the volunteer leaders who are working hard to keep the Hi-Yu traditions – including the last neighborhood-powered traveling parade float in the entire city of Seattle – going. In addition to financial support – business sponsors and annual program-book advertisers – they need people. Hi-Yu relies on a volunteer board, and wouldn’t have one right now without the parents of current court members stepping in to “do everything to keep it going,” explains Regina Arceo-Schulz. But they need successors, and “we need the community to keep the tradition going. Please help support West Seattle Hi-Yu – attend the event, advertise in the souvenir book, volunteer to decorate the float and shadow the board members.”
Want to find out what that entails? Show up for the general meeting tomorrow night (Monday, May 6), 6:30 pm at St. John the Baptist Church (California/Hanford). And then on Friday night (May 10th), be there for the first big Hi-Yu event of the season:
West Seattle Hi-Yu Annual Gala

7:00 -10:00 pm
Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish Life Center
7000 35th Ave SW
Hors d’oeuvres and no-host bar
