Two things you can do to keep the West Seattle Hi-Yu tradition going strong: First, a crowdfunding campaign is under way to save the float – last community float in the entire city; as shown in WSB video above, the float is even featured in the Seafair Torchlight Parade every year. Does Ballard have a float? No. Capitol Hill? No. Wallingford? No. West Seattle? YES. But not without you! Here’s the donation page.
Second: This Saturday (May 3rd), start your day with a buffet at the Hi-Yu Community Breakfast, 8 am-11 am at the Alki Masonic Center (40th/Edmunds), $6 adults, $3 for kids under 12. If you’re there at 9:30 am, you’ll see the three Hi-Yu Senior Court candidates (including Hi-Yu’s first-ever male candidate!) present their judged talent performances.
P.S. This year’s Senior Court coronation isn’t far away, either – 2-5 pm Sunday, May 18th, at the Hi-Yu Spring Tea and Silent Auction. Ticket info’s on the Hi-Yu website.
