On Saturday, June 3rd, West Seattle High School Alumni Association held our 2017 version of the Annual All School Reunion. This year also celebrated the 100th Commemoration of the opening of the school building with the Group Hug photo organized by the SW Seattle Historical Society. Both were a huge success and lots of fun! Thanks to all who attended the Event on the picture perfect West Seattle evening.

Walking out through the Historical entrance about 6:35pm I saw the sun was shining above, the West Seattle Big Band playing to my right and a huge crowd having lots of fun. I thought I was in Mayberry!

Many people are to be thanked for volunteering their time including your Alumni Association Board members and Class Reps. Terese Machmiller worked through the maze of getting through the School District’s process of securing the facility and promoting the event. Stephanie Aird for all of the signage, brochure layout, and more. Sandy DuBuque and Chris King for their work with the scholarship process. Btw, this year $135,000 was awarded to 17 of the brightest students. Ted Foss and his work with the Hall of Fame. Mary Toal, who will be missed as this was her last year on the board, for all of her insights and recording of what goes on. John Zitkovitch for once again organizing the Classis Car show. Linda Wells for keeping track of finances. And of course the Board President, Karen Dobbs.

There were many people too numerous to name. I know I would miss many so a big THANK YOU to all of you who helped with logistics. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Finally, Clay Eals of the SW Seattle Historical Society for the Group Hug Photo. We couldn’t have asked for a better evening for the photo which was covered by the WS Blog. Please see the link for photos and details. Check back on here on our Facebook page for more photos and accounts.

Once again I am very thankful to have had such a fabulous group of people to help make this Year’s All School a fun time for all!

Thank you!!
