ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

West Seattle Hi-Yu, a non-profit organization, established in 1934 by West Seattle's service clubs to produce a summer festival to promote the West Seattle Community and whose royalty and volunteers have served the community for those 82 years may be dissolved. Perhaps the victim of changing times, the organizations history of talent shows, Spring Tea's, queens and princesses as part of Seattle's Seafair celebration has seen diminishing support and declining membership. Hi-Yu President Jay Murray and wife Joanne Murray shared a public announcement on the future status of the organization:

"The newly elected West Seattle Hi-Yu, Inc. officers on the board have decided to not have the Hi-Yu float go to the Issaquah Salmon Days parade on Oct. 1st and discontinue attending the Fauntleroy Fall festival and Alaska Junction Fall festival and not have any of the Jr. Court, Teen Ambassador or Sr. court scholarship programs this upcoming year.
