The West Seattle Hi-Yu Community Brunch, held every year is likely not going to happen for 2012 because the event lost its underwriter according to Hi Yu President, James Kline.
In years past the brunch has been held at the American Legion Hall, or the UCC Church near Alki and usually offers a chance to meet the local royalty in the form of the Hi-Yu court of Queen and princesses and enjoy some great food.
But there's still a chance to make it happen and keep the tradition alive. "All we need is a couple hundred dollars worth of pancake batter, some eggs, sausage and orange juice," Kline said, "I'm sure we could get the Legion Hall or the UCC to host it again."
