Another Seahawk commercial with a Shoreline connection

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Seahawks fans -- have you seen the Powerade commercial featuring Jimmy Graham, tight end for the Seattle Seahawks? Do you know where it was filmed?

In the Activities Building at Fircrest School in Shoreline! Did you notice the awesome Gym with bleachers and the ramp in the hallway? The ramp leads to the now closed swimming pools. One of the pools is nine feet deep and the other one is a shallow pool that used to be used for hydrotherapy and for those who were learning how to swim.

Also, in the Activities Building there is a work out room, a stage, meeting rooms and offices, and an industrial kitchen complete with a banquet room. Of course it is all handicapped accessible.

Unfortunately the Activities Building is now closed because of state budget cuts, and only the gym is opened for the residents to use on a limited bases. It would be wonderful if the Activities Building were to reopen again including the pools, so all of us in Shoreline could once again enjoy this hidden gem.

Tours of the inside of Activities Building will be happening soon. Watch this space for details.

The ramp actually goes to the back of the stage in the large activity area with bleachers.
The Activity building with the pools is a wonder resource for the community as well as to the residents of Fircrest. The space was used for events, classes and the pool was one of the best in the area. Such a pity it was allowed to go to ruin. ---Jeanne Shepard
