   WOODINVILLE--Wilmot Park's new playground equipment arrived April 23 for its installation on Saturday, May 1.
   City of Woodinville Volunteer Coordinator John Markuson thanked Doug Spady of Doug's Boats for loaning his forklift and driver Jason Wren to offload the equipment. Markuson also thanked Amy Brown and Albertson's for loaning two dollies to the project on their busiest inventory day of the week, and Police Chief Ken Wardstrom and Sgt. Kent Baxter for providing police escort for the forklift's journey through town.
   John Mullan, the Seattle area sales rep for playground equipment maker Columbia Cascade of Vancouver, oversaw the offloading and placement of the equipment. Parks and Recreation Dept. worker Brian Meyer also played a key role in the effort.
   Markuson said he encourages any willing community members to join him and Meyer for the May 1 equipment installation, for installing and planting flower pots at Wilmot on Saturday, May 15 and for Wilmot's grand opening on Saturday, May 22. For additional information or to volunteer, call Markuson at 425-489-2700.
