The city of Kenmore will host its annual park beautification event, Jack V. Crawford “Courtesy is Contagious in Kenmore” Day, on Oct. 19.

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. Tools, drinks, and snacks will be provided and attendees are asked to bring work gloves if they have them.

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

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