Walking the Talk: LDS volunteers repair the walking path at the Children's Center

Sunday, September 26, 2010

In honor of the President's Day of Service and Remembrance on September 11, 130 volunteers from the seven congregations of the Shoreline Stake of the LDS (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints) church spent the day at the Shoreline Children's Center Community Park, south of Meridian Park Elementary at N 175 and Meridian Ave N.



Entire families worked the event.
They weeded and pulled blackberry vines.

A lot of the site has old asphalt and concrete and the weeds had grown in every crack and crevice.
Many wheelbarrows of vines were hauled away.
Before picture.

The major project of the day was to redo the very long, gravel walking path which was being overtaken by weeds. 


They removed the old gravel and dug out all the weeds by the roots. 

They hauled in and neatly laid out a new bed of gravel. 


Then they all lined up and walked firmly along the length of the path to compact the gravel.


"It was a successful day," one worker said. "We're going to volunteer again next year."
