We would like to send a huge thanks to everyone who showed up for the cleanup at Dan Porter Park on March 4! We really appreciate everyone’s efforts, and it was a great way to kick off this project.
We would also like to acknowledge Jan Van Muyden and Brian Gonzales with Island County Parks who really made the event possible.
Special thanks to Justin Burnett with The Record and Island County Commissioner Helen Price Johnson for publicity, and helping to connect local volunteers with county staff and resources (they were also volunteers themselves).
Volunteers who stuck around long enough were generously fed by Stephanie Cook and the crew at Cozy’s. They also deserve a big thanks.
Events like these only work if good people like you show up, and tell your friends. Please spread the word, and we look forward to another, perhaps less strenuous cleanup in June.
