Two-part “Restoration Reunion” on Sunday, Aug. 9, to feature outdoor demonstration, dinner speech by log preservationist David Rogers:

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is thrilled to welcome back to West Seattle the log-home preservationist who was the contractor for restoration of its “Birthplace of Seattle” Log House Museum 18 years ago.

David Rogers will be the special guest of the historical society for two events on Sunday, Aug. 9, 2015. His appearances are supported by 4Culture.

~ The first event, free and open to the public, will run from 2 to 4 pm in the museum’s Circle Courtyard, 3003 61st Ave. S.W., where Rogers will conduct an interactive demonstration of log-restoration techniques and describe in detail the hands-on work he did on the museum.

~ The second event, at 6:30 pm is a fundraiser for the historical society, is a no-host dinner and speech at West 5 Lounge in the West Seattle Junction, at which Rogers will speak about the importance of preserving and restoring log structures. Admission is a $10 donation, payable at the door or online at http://www.loghousemuseum.info/events/welcome-back-david-rogers/. (Any food or drink ordered is in addition to the donation.)

Reservations are being taken for both events at

Rogers, who has operated his Logs & Timbers business from Rhododendron, Oregon, since 1983, has successfully helped scores of private organizations and public agencies to achieve their preservation goals.

He inspired countless thousands with his hands-on helming of the Log House Museum’s back (south) wall in 1996-1997. His craftsmanship on behalf of the museum is highlighted in a 6-minute video that is viewable at http://www.loghousemuseum.info/events/welcome-back-david-rogers/.

Would you like to BEE in a Kids Costume Parade? Show up at 10 AM for face-painting and parade-prep! The parade starts at 11 AM, and is only one of the many fun activities for kids (and the young-at-heart).

Our Vendor Fair, from 11 AM to 2 PM, showcases businesses, community groups and organizations who focus on environmental sustainability, provide resources to our community, or who help support bees.

Don’t miss the Hive Demo at noon! Learn more about bees and other pollinators. Find out how you can help bees survive and thrive. Puget Sound Beekeepers will have honey available to taste or purchase.

Woodland Park Zoo will bring their Up CLOSE live animal program, “Pollinators: Little Animals, Big Job” to the festival. Pop-up Sewing and other art and science activities will also be back.

We’ll also have great music and wonderful food!

Show up before the festival starts for the Honey Run – this fun, informal run-walk-jog starts at 9:30 AM!

West Seattle High School 2019 all-school reunion
Jun 1 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

WEST SEATTLE HIGH SCHOOL ALL-SCHOOL REUNION

First off – please note that we’re shaking things up a bit this year! With accessibility issues of many of our honored guests, and a very small cast of volunteers managing this event, we’ve opted for a MUCH simpler approach than in years past. Instead of breaking out into classrooms, we are designating tables for each range of years in or around the Commons, and for some in the Library. Think very large open house vibe. As laid out in the program map, tables will be organized chronologically by year range, so most of you will be next to the table of classes in the range above or behind you. No more climbing stairs, hunting for elusive rooms, traversing a daunting length of hallways, and dashing between classrooms to find and greet friends and family from other years.

We thank you in advance for supporting this change! As always, we welcome suggestions for improvement (highly recommended to be accompanied by offers for help ;) ), in our effort to maximize community and rapport while minimizing effort for planners and guests alike.

2019 Schedule of Events

4:00 – 5:30 pm View the Classic Cars showcased on SW Stevens outside the Historical entrance

4:00 – 4:30 pm Sign in, pick up programs, name tag and roam the halls

West Seattle High School 2019 All-School Reunion After-Party @ Whisky West

In addition, there will be a special performance this year. The Crystal Sect band, made up of West Seattle High School students back in the 60’s, will perform a musical reprisal.
