AJAC Apprenticeships produce skilled manufacturing employees.

Washington State needs more skilled tradespeople for our advanced manufacturing industries. The Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee (AJAC) works to fill this need by capturing the knowledge and skills of your master tradespeople before they retire. Does your company need more skilled machinists?  Will your master tradespeople retire soon? AJAC can help you to overcome these challenges.

Interested businesses, or potential apprentices, can learn more here, here and here.

Word's getting around about the great food and drinks at South Park's own Loretta's Northwesterner.


The Seattle Times tried Loretta's great burgers, steaks and salmon salad. They came away convinced it was, "one of those great finds"


Visit Loretta's Northwesterner yourself. The food and drinks taste wonderful and the prices are more than fair.

Bright sunshine filled the sky on the morning of the 2011 Seafair Torchlight Parade. The South Park Business Association volunteers are seen here preparing the float for its debut. Bouquets of fresh flowers fill the float deck and the fabric covers have been attached.

The South Park Business Association float glides down Fourth Avenue.


Seafair awarded the illuminated float the, "Most Innovative," prize. The efforts of key contributors Gary Merlino Construction, Keithly Electric, RL Cook Sales & Supply, Sign Age, Smith Berger Marine and Warp Corp. shine through as the float casts a glow on the street. Additional support was provided by both the Port of Seattle and International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, AFL-CIO District 751.
