For the tenth year in a row the Beautify Bonney Lake event took place on Sept. 21.

About 500 volunteers spent roughly three hours working throughout Bonney Lake. There were three major projects the event focused on, executive director Lillian McGinnis said.

Apart from the major projects of cleaning up around the senior center, working in the midtown park and cleaning up along state Route 410, there were roughly 22 other sites where volunteers worked at.

McGinnis said they have always been pretty lucky with weather, she only remembers it raining once about five years ago. This year, it rained heavily the night before but cleared up in the morning just in time for the event to start.

Beautify Bonney Lake always takes place on the third Saturday of September. Fall is the best time of the year to plant, McGinnis said. It also works well with school schedules and those students and scouts that need service hours, she added.

“It’s amazing what you can do in three hours when  you get 500-600 people together,” McGinnis said.
