Catching up on West Seattle Hi-Yu as summer approaches, we visited the organization’s monthly meeting last night at Admiral Congregational Church. Above, the plan for this year’s float – the last neighborhood float in Seattle – is based on last year’s popular Around the Sound – this time, it will be Around West Seattle, as envisioned by Junior Court Queen Amelia Kline. Holdover features will include the orca, fish, and ferryboat that were hits last year, and some new features TBA. A donation is needed for starters: A small children’s bicycle with a basket and training wheels. If you have one you can donate to Hi-Yu, contact them through their website.

Hi-Yu is still looking for Senior Court candidates (the deadline has been extended again), so this year’s parade season, starting with next weekend’s multi-location Daffodil Parade in Pierce County, will start with just the Junior Court on the float and the Teen Ambassadors marching alongside.

Next big event – the annual Hi-Yu tea, 2 pm Sunday, May 22nd, at The Hall @ Fauntleroy. Local businesses can expect to hear from Hi-Yu reps seeking donations for the fundraising auction. Tea tickets, available through Hi-Yu, are $25.

P.S. You’ll get to see the Hi-Yu float and entourage here in West Seattle during the WS Grand Parade on Saturday, July 23rd.
