Jeff Shaw presented the Woodinville City Council with a $5,000 check from the Woodinville Chamber of Commerce for construction at the Wilmot Gateway Park, Mar. 24. Shaw, executive director of the chamber, said the money came from an October 1996 auction.
The money will go towards purchasing covered picnic areas, garden boxes, and restrooms, according to Lane Youngblood, Woodinville parks and recreation director. So far, $205,000 has been donated to the building of the park, according to Youngblood. A scale model of the Wilmot site and information on the buildings is at the Wells Fargo Bank in Woodinville. Order forms for personalized brick and tiles can be found at Molbak's and Double ZZ Outfitters.
