White Center Chamber Installs New Multi Language Welcome Signs

The White Center Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Seattle Foundation and the White Center Community Development Association (CDA), installed two new multi-language “Welcome” signs in White Center this week.

“Of the five original signs installed in the early 1990s, all are damaged beyond repair,” they said in a statement. “These two signs are coated with an anti-graffiti material and represent the first phase for replacing all White Center Welcome signs.”

The second new sign is located at 4th SW and SW 108th in unincorporated King County, and the Chamber will continue fundraising to replace the other three signs in 2011

The Chamber board gathered at the sign located at Holy Family School, near the intersection of Roxbury and 19th SW Friday afternoon (Jan. 21st) for this photo:

    I would love a copy, or clear photo of your sign, is this possible? I live and work in a largely white British neighbourhood (near London England)and would like to be a bit more outgoing in our welcome to chidlren, or at least make them aware there are other cultures out there! Gill
