Plant Party

An effort to help beautify downtown Enumclaw was carried out June 14 when dozens of volunteers flocked to Cole Street intersections and planted approximately 500 geraniums. The venture was prompted by a 10-step program to breathe life into downtown adopted by the Community/Economic Development Committee of the Enumclaw City Council. The Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce took the lead and, working with the city’s Parks and Recreation Department and Grandma’s Garden, recruited people and businesses to “adopt” 16 beds and a dozen sidewalk planters. Among those helping with the planting were Dr. Scott Decker, Chuck and Celia Bender, the crew from The Rainier, members of the local post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Mary Ellen Rutter, Liz Reynolds, Tim Pierick, Rob and Kim Peterson, A.J. Hamilton and Cheryl Vanderwalker. -   Photos courtesy Enumclaw Chamber of Commerce
