Church takes up call to service
In response to the president’s call for a Day of Service and Remembrance to memorialize Sept. 11, the five congregations in Enumclaw and Buckley of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provided nearly 1,000 hours in community projects in both communities. The 200-plus volunteers included men, women and children donating their time and talents in a variety of projects.
Enumclaw Latter-day Saints worked to clean, weed and groom the landscape of the Veteran’s Memorial Park. Other teams partnered with the Enumclaw Expo Center to paint buildings and renovate more than 50 picnic tables. This included the dismantling of each table and rebuilding them with new lumber and hardware.
Latter-day Saints in Buckley joined with the Buckley museum, community center and the city Parks to provide service for each. The museum needed concrete walks which volunteers poured, along with fixing the gazebo roof. They also painted at the community center and touched up Trail Park that runs along state Route 410.
For many of the members, cleaning up and repairing the Buckley museum brought back many fond memories. This building was originally owned by the church and provided a place to worship before a new chapel was built in 1970.
