Just out of the WSB inbox, from the West Seattle Junction Association:
Thank you West Seattle for a great time at Summer Fest 2010! What a weekend!
The West Seattle Junction Association organizes this event to be a neighborhood festival and celebration (and the historic sidewalk sale), but it could not have reached this level of success without the involvement of our community. I’d like to say a big Thank You to the following groups who helped make Summer Fest an event for all:
Our Sponsors truly make this event possible since, believe it not, this event is not free to produce! Thank you sponsors for their community spirit. The West Seattle Chamber of Commerce staffed the Information Booth all weekend, offering valuable information about the festival and West Seattle, while also providing the first stop for lost families and first aid. West Seattle Blog (sponsor) also helped in this endeavor while reporting live from the Info Booth. The Seattle Police Department was awesome on so many levels – helping lost families, monitoring the crossing of Oregon St, and overall having a strong presence at the festival. I believe this was the best kids’ area yet and Pathfinder School continued to host the FREE Art Activities – four years running. Thanks to Coffee to a Tea for donating more than 1500 cookies for kids to frost and decorate in this area. West Seattle Helpline coordinated the Community Tent where local organizations and non-profits received a free table at the festival. Twilight Artist Collective organized the Art Dive tent – thanks for all the great art! The West Seattle Nursery (sponsor) and Sustainable West Seattle coordinated the first ever GreenLife: A Garden and Sustainability Expo. And lastly, thank you to Cleanscapes and Starbucks, who sponsored the handling of recycling, composting and trash and were responsible for a super clean event!! West Seattle Summer Fest was a true collaboration of community.
We work to produce an event that is successful for all, and feedback from the community is a guiding force. I have read (and appreciate) all the comments on the WSB about the festival and they will certainly be a consideration for next year. If you would like to submit comments directly, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
