Stand Tall for History

“Stand Tall for History” was the theme of this year’s Southwest Seattle Historical Society Gala. Held at Salty’s on Alki we ate a delicious lunch and listened to Paula Beck and Alan J. Stein, authors of “The Future Remembered: The 1962 Seattle World’s Fair and Its Legacy” as we gazed in wonder at the Space Needle which was bathed in red reminiscent of 1962! ┬áIt’s a tall order being the keeper of our local history and the historical Society and its Log House Museum should be commended for keeping our history alive.

Gala 160

It looked like a trip through time as the Southwest Seattle Historical Society celebrated 160 years of history of the Duwamish Peninsula and Alki, the birthplace of Seattle during their annual fundraiser held at Salty’s on Alki.

Strolling through the festivities were a group from the sixties: Pete Covell, Carole & Andre Ferreer reflected on “Peace, man.”;

while 34th District Democrats Tamsen Spangler, Max Vekick and Marcee Stone reminded us of women’s suffrage.
