In the award announcement, Chamber CEO Julia Jordan is quoted as saying, “The Westside Awards recognize companies and individuals that reflect our West Seattle geographical, professional, and individual differences. But together we are the collective engine fueling our local economy, keeping our city strong and helping to create a culture that is uniquely West Seattle.” Your chance to applaud the honorees is at the Westside Awards breakfast, Tuesday, April 30th, 7:30 am at Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor); tickets and sponsorships are still available via the Chamber website.

      Adah certainly  deserves Westsider.   She has given so much to help West Seattle. And it’s a tribute to her husband Earl who gave his heart and soul to us too    Also if you’re true West Seattleites you have loved Alki lumber all your life and supported Arts West  to boot    Well done WSChamber

    Sound Foundations NW loves Alki Lumber and I personally think that Kory and his team are Super Stars.  The personal attention and care they give to us and what is important to us can’t be overstated.  They care about West Seattle and I am happy to hear that Alki Lumber gets this recognition.

    It’s too bad the “Business of the Year” is slated for closure and redevelopment.

    Congratulations my fearless husband for making Alki Lumber Westside Business of the Year. Bringing this charming 1927 Lumber yard into the 21st century was not easy but your leadership, management and business skills have made it happen and you have been recognized. I am proud to be your wife.
