The City of Kenmore will host its annual park beautification event, Jack V. Crawford "Courtesy is Contagious in Kenmore" Day, on October 20th. The event will be from 9 a.m.–12 p.m. at Log Boom Park, 17415 61st Ave NE. Volunteers are needed to help with planting flowers, removing invasive plants, and picking up trash. If you have them, please bring your own work gloves. Tools, drinks, and snacks will be provided.

Mayor Crawford served as Kenmore’s first Mayor from the City’s incorporation in August 1998 through 1999 and served on City Council until December 2005.

Mayor Crawford passed away in 2008 and in 2009, City Council proclaimed Jack V. Crawford “Cour­tesy is Contagious in Kenmore” Day to honor his leadership, graciousness, and generosity of spirit. Mayor Crawford was particularly proud of Kenmore's parks. While serving as the president of the Kenmore Heritage Society in 2008, Jack played a key role in developing the Kenmore History Path at Log Boom Park. The Heritage Society dedicated the path to him in August 2009.

Meaningful Movie - Oct 12

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

sustainableAt this month’s Woodinville Meaningful Movie on Friday, Oct 12, the film “Sustainable” weaves together expert analysis of America’s food system with the story of one remarkable farmer, Marty Travis, a seventh-generation farmer in central Illinois who watched his land and community fall victim to the pressures of big agribusiness. Determined to create a proud legacy for his son, Marty transforms his money-losing farm by adopting sustainable agriculture. The film weaves in interviews with other pioneering farmers in a story of hope and transformation.

After the movie, this month’s guest facilitator Jason Padvorac will lead the post-movie discussion and add his own insights as a local farmer.  Padvorac is a suburban farmer and teacher of about permaculture. 
Woodinville Meaningful Movies is a project to bring together neighbors to learn and discuss important issues of our times. They are presented at 7 p.m. on the second Friday of every month, free and open to all, located at Northshore United Church of Christ (18900 168th Ave NE, Wdvl).
