Each year, the Renton Community Services Dept. and the Parks Dept. conduct a celebration of these two days by hosting an enhancement project at one of Renton’s parks or other public areas. Typically, about 200 citizens from throughout Renton turn out.
This year’s activity will again take place at Kennydale’s Gene Coulon Beach Park, on Saturday, April 25th, at 9:30 am – 1:00 pm (check in at 9:00 am). The Parks Dept. staff will have a variety of projects lined up, including planting of native trees and shrubs, and other easy tasks. At the conclusion of the projects (around noon), a lunch will be served! Volunteers should dress for whatever weather we have that day, and it’s a good idea to bring a suitable pair of work gloves. All tools will be provided by the Parks Dept.
Please call the Renton Community Services Dept. at 425-430-6600 to register (and be sure to mention that you are a Kennydale resident). You can also register at the event, but it helps the event planners if you do it earlier. Minors 17 years and younger must have a “Permission Form” signed by a parent or guardian, and minors 14 and younger must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Permission forms will be available at the sign-in table, or you can contact KNA before the event at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a blank form by email.
We invite you to join with your family, friends or co-workers and participate in this event. You will find it to be a very rewarding experience, and the results of your efforts will be very visible and much appreciated by all who utilize the park….which is most all of us here in Kennydale!
KNA is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Kennydale and fostering community spirit.
