Looking for B.F. Day Alumni, to honor them at the Carnival celebrating 125 years of Fremont’s public elementary school.

Did you attend B.F. Day Public Elementary School in its 125-years of operation?  Do you know someone who attended B.F. Day?  Alumni are being sought, now, and you could help greatly just by spreading the word!

B.F. Day Elementary is the longest continuously operating Seattle Public School, and our brick-and-wood structure has seen generations of educators, students, and staff pass through its doors.  Celebrating the 125th birthday of the school, the organizers of the upcoming free, community Carnival on May 20th, want to honor the men and women who made our school the very best!

Please consider attending the Carnival, and spreading the word to anyone who may have attended our school.  Alumni can join the Facebook event page, add their class information, tag former classmates, upload old photos from the school, and share a story or two.  We want to honor our school’s rich history, and everyone who has been a part of building this incredible educational community.

Between now and May 5th, King County METRO has asked for public participation in an on-line survey on bus fares.

METRO is considering two options for changing bus fares for adult riders.  These changes would not affect fares for youth, seniors, disabled, ORCA LIFT, or Access riders.  METRO would like to make the adult fare structure easier to understand to speed up boarding and to reduce fare disputes.

METRO is asking for input about which of two options for change the public would prefer.  Current adult fares include extra charges for travel during weekday peak commute hours, and for trips that cross a zone boundary during peak hours.  Riders may pay $2.50, $2.75 or $3.25 depending on when and how far they may travel.  The two options under consideration are:

  • Option #1:  A single $2.75 far for travel any time, any distance
  • Option #2:  A $3.00 peak-period fare, and a $2.50 off-peak fare, with no extra charge for two-zone travel

Please consider filling out the on-line survey (click here) before May 5th.  Find more details on the METRO project website.
