Mormons improve the looks of Woodinville

  NW News staff
   As part of the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Mormon exodus to Utah, the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints worked at two projects on July 19 to improve the looks of both the Woodinville Cemetary and Daniel's Creek Park.
   Seventy-five members of the Third Ward, located at Cottage Lake worked on the eastern half of the Woodinville Cemetary. They were aided in the morning by 75 members from the First Ward located in Kingsgate. The two groups mowed, clipped and raked at the pioneer cemetary in downtown Woodinville.
   A large group from Woodinville's Second Ward worked to clean up Daniel's Creek Park, near Woodinville-Duvall Road. Weeding, mowing, wood cutting and the removal of blackberry thickets and rotting fences has transformed what had been a neglected overgrown county site and turned it into a perfect place for families to picnic. The park is located on the Woodinville-Duvall Rd. near 182 NE and the blueberry farm.
