Beautify Bonney Lake, the annual volunteer campaign to improve various locations around the city, will hold its 10th annual event Sept. 21. Five hundred to 700 volunteers are expected.
The organizers identify at least 20 project sites each year. Much of the current appearance of Ascent Park is due to improvements made by Beautify volunteers.
In 2013, projects include planting rhododendrons in Allan Yorke Park, clearing overgrowth near the senior center and weeding Cedarview Park. A full list of sites and projects can be found on the Beautify Bonney Lake webpage.
Volunteer groups include the Bonney Lake High School athletics department, the Lions Club, Boy Scouts and Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; but everyone is welcomed to help. All volunteers will meet at the Bonney Lake Park and Ride at 8:30 a.m. to receive assigned work locations. Helpers are asked to submit a group roster and liability waiver online, or mail a hard copy toBeautify Bonney Lake PO Box 7431 Bonney Lake, WA 98391
This year’s event has 47 sponsors, including Home Depot, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit and Harborstone Credit Union.
