Just a little over a month until hydroplanes race at Seafair – and the West Seattle Junction got a bit of a preview today when defending national champion Miss HomeStreet visited the West Seattle branch of its sponsor, HomeStreet Bank (also a WSB sponsor).

Nam (above, with WS Baby’s Toni Sarge) and his team are hosting a diaper drive at the bank – just drop off diapers at 4022 SW Alaska (see the hours here).
