Beautify Enumclaw planning meeting June 2

Here’s your chance to make the Plateau a more beautiful place to live.

If you have an idea how to make the Plateau a more beautiful place to live, an opportunity to have your voice heard is right around the corner.

On Wednesday, June 2, at 6 p.m., city and community leaders will be meeting at the Enumclaw Church of Latter-Day Saints in order to plan for the fifth-annual Beautify Enumclaw event.

Beautify Enumclaw is all about the community coming together to make the city a better place to live, said organizer Jeri Gamblin.

“In past years we have painted backstops, fences, gazebos and benches, cleaned up and harvested community gardens, new plantings at parks throughout town, and cleaning planters,” she wrote in an email to supporters of past Beautify events. “We hope to have new ideas and enthusiasm for this Day of Service with more congregations, groups and clubs joining this fall.”

Gamblin added that organizers are also looking for project leaders that can help manage volunteers on a specific project site.

This year’s Beautify Enumclaw event will be held Saturday, Sept. 11, from 9 a.m. to noon.

“Please invite other organizations of community members I may not be aware of,” Gamblin added. “We want to include all and foster a feeling of unity and pride for this place we all call home.”

All who attend the meeting are asked to wear a face mask, as per COVID protocols.
