Mmm…BBQ chicken. Yesterday, 1,000 youth, seniors, community members and organizations from White Center converged on Greenbridge’s plaza to participate in a “Feeding Washington” event for the White Center Food Bank. Besides the abundance of food (the aforementioned chicken, bread, corn, and potato salad), there was also entertainment and speeches from elected officials. Photo: Ian Dapiaoen.Post a comment
Calling all local historians, both amateur and professional! Preservation 4Culture is embarking on a new project in partnership with the White Center Community Development Association to document the history of the Southgate Roller Rink and we are asking YOU to share your memories…
The Southgate Roller Rink served as a community gathering place - weekend hangout, family activity center, and sports arena - for over 70 years. It is a neighborhood fixture that helped put White Center on the map. Popular sports figures like boxers Al Hostak and Harry “The Kid” Matthews, wrestler Robin Reed, and most recently, the Rat City Roller Girls drew large crowds to White Center. The rink is probably best remembered by locals, however, for the hours they spent showing off their skating skills circling around the hardwood floor with their family members and/or sweethearts. We want to hear about those experiences!
