After a long break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve reactivated our volunteer program – the West Hill Action Mob (WHAM) – and offered not one, but two ways to make a visible difference in the Skyway-West Hill community during July 2021.
In an effort to get as many youth registered and informed ahead of the 2019 General Election in King County on November 5th, 2019, we partnered with Renton High School students over one week in October to train, inspire, and engage.

And we experienced the best films both in and outdoors, always with fresh organic popcorn in hand.
Some folks underestimate how much fun we have in West Hill, particularly in our vibrant Skyway neighborhood. For those unfortunate folks that might not have paid close attention and missed all the fun, here’s a look back at some of our favorite highlights you can share with ’em.

From taking on mountains and tackling wetlands restoration to the crazy costumes at Skyway Outdoor Cinema, 2015 was packed with unforgettable moments in West Hill. We look back on a few of our favorites in this round-up:
There was a little change of scenery for the Annual West Hill Action Mob (WHAM) Spring Cleanup this year.
