We’ll end with Clay Eals, Executive Director of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, interviewing these West Seattle locals: ·Larry Pierce – Larry’s history with the Y goes back to his great grandfather, Laurence Colman, a lifelong YMCA leader who started the Fauntleroy YMCA and Camp Colman. In addition to discussing his family’s own involvement, he will highlight the little-known efforts of locals in the difficult times of the 1930s and 1940s. ·Ann Adkins – Ann grew up being heavily involved in Camp Fire Girls, which started in the YMCA, and then took her toddler daughter to learn to swim at the West Seattle YMCA. She soon began volunteering to teach swim lessons and retired after 40 years leading Aquatics at the West Seattle YMCA. ·Bruce Davis – Bruce is the owner of the Junction True Value Hardware and grew up in West Seattle. He spent many happy hours staying out of trouble at the YMCA. Bruce has served on the West Seattle & Fauntleroy YMCA Board for more than a decade. ·Ruthie Waid – Ruthie is known by many from her years as a teacher in Seattle Public Schools, including stints at Lafayette and E.C. Hughes. She swam her way through Y Aquatics programs from Tadpoles to Dolphins and volunteered in the bag room at the old West Seattle YMCA pool. We encourage our readers to comment.
