As reported in the West Seattle Herald, The Southwest Seattle Historical Society will be unveiling the newly restored totem pole that used to welcome residents and tourists alike at the city’s Belvedere View Point Park. The restored totem pole will now be on display at the Log House Museum at the foot of Schmitz Park.
The unveiling will be an historic occasion for West Seattle and for our school community, so the whole school is taking a field trip down through the park to participate. As a special honor, Schmitz Park alumnus King County Executive Dow Constantine will join the school community for a procession down through the park to the ceremony. His counterpart at Seattle, Alki Elementary alumnus Mayor Ed Murray will be leading the Alki Elementary community.
