WEST LINN - Take Care of West Linn Day is ready for its fifth year in a row on May 18, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. This annual volunteer day continues to be a great success in West Linn. Local groups have signed up already but we have plenty of opportunities left. After a productive three hours of volunteering, the Parks & Recreation Department welcomes all participating volunteers to a barbecue at Mary S Young Park from 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. This is just one way that the Parks & Recreation Department shows their appreciation to volunteers. The barbecue is made possible by the support of local sponsors Sun Garden Montessori Children's House and Pacific West Bank.
The Parks & Recreation Advisory Board’s mission for Take Care of West Linn Day is to promote the value of volunteerism and community pride by making opportunities available for community groups and individual members to participate in projects to give back to their community and maintain the high quality of life in West Linn. The goal is to facilitate a large number of projects throughout the City, led by community organizations or individuals.
Local organizations can choose to organize their own project or partner with another existing project. The Parks and Recreation Department will help with identifying a project and planning your project. In 2012 Take Care of West Linn Day had 22 different projects, located at 17 different sites, accomplished by 22 local groups. Individuals also have the opportunity to join one of the organized projects through partner SOLV or by contacting the Parks & Recreation offices. Projects are available for all ages and abilities.
Please contact the City of West Linn if your organization is interested in participating in Take Care of West Linn Day. Contact Ken Warner at 503-557-4700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a group project or for more details.
