Tonight, we’re announcing the latest list of twice-yearly West Seattle Volunteer Recognition Award winners! The awards are sponsored by the Southwest and Delridge District Councils (representatives of community groups and organizations from all over the peninsula) and WSB; you do the nominating, reps from the two district councils do the judging. Drum roll …
Community award – Dennis Ross, longtime activist/advocate in the Admiral neighborhood
Youth award – Arthea and Ronda Barber, volunteers at Highland Park Elementary School
Environment award – Scott Blackstock, volunteer caretaker for Roxhill Bog/Park
Group award – Furry Faces Foundation, animal advocates and providers of compassionate assistance for animals’ human companions
Come give these hardworking volunteers a hearty cheer and much-deserved applause next Tuesday, as they are introduced and honored during the West Seattle Hi-Yu Festival Concert in the Park (7 pm on the Hiawatha East Lawn, free, starring the fabulous West Seattle Big Band).
