The City of Kenmore will host the annual Jack V. Crawford 'Courtesy is Contagious in Kenmore' Day park cleanup event on Saturday, October 22 in honor of Kenmore's first Mayor Jack V. Crawford.

Volunteers are needed to help with mulching, planting, weeding, and picking up trash from 9am to noon at Log Boom Park, 17415 61st Ave NE.

In 2009, City Council proclaimed October 22 'Cour­tesy is Contagious in Kenmore' Day as an annual observance in honor of Mr. Crawford, who passed away in December 2008. Mr. Crawford served on the Kenmore City Council from the City’s incorporation in August 1998 through December 2005. During his Council tenure, he held the position of Kenmore’s first Mayor from 1998 through 1999; and held the position of Deputy Mayor from 2000 through 2001.

In 2008, while serving as the president of the Kenmore Heritage Society, Mr. Crawford played a key role in developing the Kenmore History Path at Log Boom Park. The Heritage Society dedicated the path to Mr. Crawford in August 2009. The skate court at Kenmore City Hall is also named after Mr. Crawford.

Bring your own work gloves; other tools will be provided. Adults can register on site and any volunteer under 18 years of age must preregister. This is a great opportunity to garden and help keep Kenmore's parks beautiful!
