HAPPENING NOW: Healthy Kids Day @ West Seattle YMCA

The West Seattle YMCA (WSB sponsor) is looking to its future, with the upcoming expansion, so it’s no surprise we found an “astronaut” there as Healthy Kids Day got going this morning. Even the dunk tank has gone high tech:

That’s Josh Sutton from the Y, who’s wearing a GoPro camera to capture the dunk-tank action this time around. Healthy Kids Day is on for another hour, until 1 pm, and along with a long list of free, fun activities, you can meet some local business folks like the West Seattle School of Rock (also a WSB sponsor):

The Y’s at 36th SW and SW Snoqualmie in The Triangle.

    That is one serious astronaut (such a good sport). What a great event! Thanks WSY

    The WS YMCA was emergency evacuated around 4:30 today. There was a smell of gas and the fire dept. was investigating. Don’t know what the investigation turned up.

      Hi, thanks. It’s on the 911 log only as “natural gas odor” and it’s long closed, so whatever it was, it’s over now, and that was three hours after this event ended. Nobody texted us so it didn’t hit our radar – breaking news: 206-293-6302 any time!

    What an amazing day for kids and familys!

    Thanks for checking in on the gas call. Our YMCA staff cleared the building due to a gas smell around 4:40pm. However the Fire Department did not get any readings as they went through, and okayed the building for reopening by about 5:30. We remained closed until 7pm when we hosted 60+ kids for a 2 hour tween takeover Saturday Night! All systems normal and opened regularly on Sunday. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sorry, comment time is over.
