The city of Kenmore will host its annual park beautification event, Jack V. Crawford “Courtesy is Contagious in Kenmore” Day on Oct. 20. The event will be from 9 a.m. to noon at Log Boom Park, 17415 61st. Ave. NE. Volunteers are needed to help with planting flowers, removing invasive plants and picking up trash. If you have them, bring your own work gloves. Tools, drinks, and snacks will be provided.

Mayor Crawford served as Kenmore’s first mayor from the city’s incorporation in August 1998 through 1999 and served on City Council until December 2005.

Mayor Crawford passed away in 2008 and in 2009, City Council proclaimed Jack V. Crawford “Cour­tesy is Contagious in Kenmore” Day to honor his leadership, graciousness, and generosity of spirit. Mayor Crawford was particularly proud of Kenmore’s parks. While serving as the president of the Kenmore Heritage Society in 2008, he played a key role in developing the Kenmore History Path at Log Boom Park. The Heritage Society dedicated the path to him in August 2009.

For those who wish to help plan the event, RSVP to Shelby at skrogh@kenmorewa.gov.
