I had no clue I’d be photographing a ‘local living legend’ last night but that’s exactly what happened as King County Executive, Dow Constantine dedicated the building located at the corner of California and Oregon in honor of Karen Sisson, retired Director of the Senior Center of West Seattle. Karen served as Director for the Center for 25 years. She was instrumental in starting a campaign to raise funds to purchase the property; the community supported her and her vision and in return has christened the property as “The Sisson Building”. You’ll find a handsome plaque at the front door and ‘Sisson Building’ emblazoned at the top of the building fronting California.
Community leaders and members of the Senior Center turned out to acknowledge her contributions and wish her well. There was wonderful food and music. I wish her smooth sailing on her journey into retirement! (wink, wink)
