COME JOIN THE CELEBRATION! – Alki Statue of Liberty Plaza, Sept. 19th at 2 PM

Hello Alki Friends and Statue Supporters:

Well, it’s been an interesting 2 years since we started the new Alki community group Seattle Statue of Liberty Plaza Project.  A renewed commitment was needed to finish the Statue Plaza as envisioned by the community and designed by two wonderful architects (Matt Hutchins & Chris Ezzell) who had given generously of their time and talent as they created a compelling vision for this special place on Alki Beach. 

This Saturday, with the help of our own Astronaut from West Seattle, we celebrate the conclusion of our work as the community group that raised the money which completed this long awaited project.  It will be a special celebration as we bury a new 50 year time capsule (as the Scouts did in 1952) and as we celebrate the additional 852 bricks and new tribute plaques “seriously” requested by community members. 

We will also celebrate the “passing of the torch” of this beloved icon and place onto the Alki Community Council as they will continue to act as its steward on behalf of the Alki community.

We hope you can join us for this wonderful celebration and hear what our own Astronaut, Greg Johnson, has to say.  Paul and I have been honored to have personally met so many of you, made new friends and have felt your sincere appreciation and support for our leadership efforts. It has been a privilege to serve in this way.
