Happy Valentine's Day
Wishing you a month filled with love, and reminding you to share the gift of family and friendship all year long.
Love for All!
More than ever, you need that extra special sparkle in your life around Valentines Day. The sentiment this time of the year can be extended to family, friends, and that *one* person who puts a twinkle in your eye.

The Junction merchants have gathered together (with masks on), to bring some of your favorite foods and gifts to West Seattle. You can experience the Junction through the Love 4 All boxes (hurry though as they are almost sold out!), the lively shopping happening this Thursday, February 4th starting at 4 PM, through delish dishes enjoyed as dine-in or take-out, and heart-felt items hand-curated by the Junction shops.

As we move into Phase 2 (yay!), your Junction restaurants and fitness centers will begin to open up. Keep each other safe and healthy by wearing your mask so we can all get through 2021 together as a supportive community.

Sending you love this month and all year-long.

Mural Graffiti Update
Here's an update on the Hi-Yu Parade mural that was recently hit with graffiti targeting black and brown people.

Thank you so very much West Seattle for supporting this important restoration work of the Murals of West Seattle.

And thank you to the Art Lovers who were strolling! They welcomed Fogue Gallery for their first Art Walk, West Seattle Grounds in Admiral, Snip It’s, Verity and Capers in the Junction, and West Seattle Cellars in Morgan.
