The West Seattle Junction Association puts up flags on all appropriate occasions. The volunteer job includes meeting Don, our handyman, at 7:30 am to put them out, and 6pm to put them away. (The flags are stored in the basement of the Cupcake Royale building and the job requires a lot of stair walking).

We are looking to create a list of interested people, so if you’d like to be called upon for September 11th and 16th or in the future, please e-mail Liz Schroeder at or call 935-0904.
