Happy Friday! Busy day/night ahead – highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:
CITY YEAR RALLY AT SANISLO: As announced by Sanislo Elementary:
Sanislo Elementary was fortunate enough to receive the Family and Education Levy Grant for the 2014-15 school year. As part of the grant, Sanislo will be partnering with City Year, an agency that will support the academic, social-emotional and attendance needs of students in collaboration with school staff. On Friday morning at 9:30 a.m., in anticipation of next school year, City Year will be at Sanislo to cheer on and greet students as they enter the building tomorrow morning. The Sanislo Community is extremely excited as we move into this fabulous partnership.

TOTEM POLE UNVEILING: At 10:30 am (but get there early!), you’re invited to join West Seattle-rooted dignitaries, schoolchildren, longtime community leaders, and others at the Log House Museum for the unveiling of the renovated totem pole that overlooked the Admiral Way viewpoint 1966-2006. The intersection outside the LHM will be closed for the occasion. Here’s our newest preview. (61st/Stevens)
D-DAY ANNIVERSARY FLYOVER: As previewed here yesterday, three P-51 Mustangs are flying over the region to mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day, and you’ll likely see/hear them from here during the afternoon – starting with their downtown Seattle flyover at noon, after which they head to Boeing Field and points south, including Vashon just after 1:30. Our Thursday story includes the schedule. (Various locations)
