Volunteers sought for Edith Moulton Park project on May 5

Handy with a paint brush or sander? Good at following directions? The Juanita Neighborhood Association seeks volunteers with or without handyman skills to help repair shelters and make other improvements at Edith Moulton Park, 13710 108th Ave NE, on Saturday, May 5 from 8 a.m. until noon.

Volunteers will sand and stain shelters and a picnic table and install pavers at the park entrance. The project, sponsored by the Juanita Neighborhood Association with a $1,500 grant from the City of Kirkland, will also replace metal roofs on the shelters. City staff will manage the roof replacements.

Interested in helping? Simply show up at the park anytime Saturday morning, May 5 after 8 a.m. Wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty, and if you have them, bring gloves.

The project is the first of several planned this year by the Juanita Neighborhood Association. Other projects include a neighborhood picnic at Juanita Beach in August, historical signs at Juanita Beach, and emergency training for neighbors.
