On Saturday, Oct. 4, the city of Bothell held three special daffodil planting events at city parks to prepare for its centennial celebration in 2009. The idea is that with these fall plantings, the community will be full of daffodil blooms in the spring.
Many citizens including the Kiwanis Club, various Bothell Girl Scout and Brownie Troops, individual families and Northshore Baptist Church members gave up their valuable time to contribute their hard work to beautify Cedar Grove Park, Stipek Park and the Park at Bothell Landing — together with city staff members, participants successfully planted almost 5,000 bulbs on that rainy day. The Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce was also a partner in this effort as it distributed free daffodil bulbs to the community at our RiverFest event, their membership meetings, as well as to citizens who visited their office for planting at homes and businesses.
It is this type of community spirit that is unsurpassed and another reason why we can all be proud of being a part of Bothell.
On behalf of the city of Bothell, I extend our gratitude to our citizens and staff for their support in making the city’s next 100 years even more successful than its first century! As we head into our centennial year, citizens can visit HYPERLINK “http://www.ci.bothell.wa.us” www.ci.bothell.wa.us for upcoming activities and plans.
