Echo Lake Neighborhood Association weeds the Interurban

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

The Echo Lake Neighborhood Association held its annual work party in Echo Lake Park on Tuesday, July 20. They weeded the section of the Interurban Trail that runs through Echo Lake Park, put new bark on the garden areas, and picked up litter. About 25 volunteers participated.

Normally the work party would put a load of sand on the tiny beach but someone drove a stolen truck into the lake the day before and the City was worried that new sand might trap the oil and gas from the vehicle.

The work party was followed by the annual picnic in the park. Kid activities were provided by neighborhood volunteers. Politicians weeded and worked the crowd. Over 100 people enjoyed the picnic dinner. And the weather cooperated beautifully.

Attendees brought in food for the HopeLink food bank, books for the Council of Neighborhoods book sale the next evening, used ink cartridges for Echo Lake Elementary, and Labels for Education and Boxtops for Education for the schools.

The Echo Lake Neighborhood Association meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from September to November; and from January to June, 7 pm at City Hall.  The annual work party and picnic is the 3rd Tuesday of July. Anyone is lives or works in the ELNA area is welcome to participate. ELNA is bounded by 205th, I-5, 185th, and Aurora.
