In honor of Earth Day, the City of Mountlake Terrace is providing an opportunity for citizens to give back to their community. Families, friends and neighbors are invited to help tidy up Ballinger Park on Saturday, April 25 from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m.

Volunteers should meet at the Ballinger Clubhouse (Senior Center) parking lot, 23000 Lakeview Drive, at 9 a.m. in comfortable work clothes, with gloves and tools in hand (no power equipment please), to get their assignment. This year’s projects include weed control, litter clean up, and debris removal.

Groups should contact Parks Services and Facilities Superintendent Ken Courtmanch at 425-776-1811 to register in advance. Following the work party, the City Council will host an appreciation lunch for the volunteers. Please come, celebrate the beginning of spring, and join the fun – rain or shine.

For more information about this or other volunteer opportunities, contact Courtmanch or access the City’s website at www.cityofmlt.com.
