Hi-Yu has promoted the West Seattle Community for over 79 years through summer festivals such as Summerfest, Seafair and other local events. This year we are combining the auction, coronation and White Rose Ceremony into an Annual Gala. The auction raises funds for our scholarship program to help the young women attending colleges. Also, financial support keeps the only community owned float visible in parades like the American Legion Parade, 4th of July Burien Parade and Seafair Torchlight. This year's theme is, Alki Deep - An Undersea Adventure, promoting the beauty and life beneath the waters of Puget Sound.
Come see 2012 West Seattle Hi-Yu Queen, Kayli Schulz crown 2013 Queen, April Davis and induct her and her court, Junior Queen Madison Stanley-Jones, Princess Olivia Efird, Princess Emily Galvin, and Princess Winter Williams into the White Rose Ceremony. The ceremony used to be an event reserved for women and past court members only but this year, men will see it for the first time and be part of history. We encourage past court members to bring their scrapbooks to share their experiences and fond memories with new court members.
The West Seattle Hi - Yu Junior Court

West Seattle Hi-Yu is looking for your button design. This year's theme is Alki Deep, An Undersea Adventure. If your design wins, you'll be participating in this summer's American Legion Parade (7/20) with the West Seattle Hi-Yu Court. Please bring your button drawings (2" diameter) to the General Meeting, Monday night (6:30 PM), February 4th at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church, 3050 California Avenue SW. We will make a decision on the winning design later in the week. Also, we are desperately short of volunteers for this year’s festival! It is time to begin float construction, enlisting business sponsors for the souvenir book, and procuring items for this year's coronation and auction night. We have a great Junior Court, with their families, and a small group of diehard volunteers, but we will not be able to continue preparation for the Summer Festival, if we don’t have more help. This is a great opportunity to fill some of our dreary winter nights & weekends working with other interesting & fun West Seattlelites. Please contact us if you are able to assist!
