Happy WSAD

bannerday1.jpg Yes, today’s the day – West Seattle Annexation Day: The 100th anniversary of WS getting annexed into The City … the reason Hizzoner dedicated the tree and the plaque before last week’s Hi-Yu Concert In The Park … the reason you’ve been seeing banners around town like the one at left. HistoryLink.org tells the tale, and also offers a more detailed history of our side of the bay. Today’s Times includes a small blurb with a cool old photo (bottom of this roundup). So … how should we celebrate? Or should we at all?

    The city of West Seattle apparently only existed for five years (1902-1907). Does anyone know where city hall was?

    I understand several festivities are planned, including: Crosswalk Painting, a Name Townhouse/Condo contest, Guess the next Condo conversion project, a “Find that Pothole” treasure hunt and design an alternate viaduct route contest.
