Sandbagging instruction for Kenmore citizens

   The Army Corps of Engineers is offering sandbagging instruction for home and business owners.

   "We want our citizens prepared to protect their property from the possible high water brought by a wetter than normal winter," said Steve Anderson, Kenmore City Manager.

   "Filling and placing sandbags is a bit of an art," said Dan Good, Coordinator, Emergency Services Coordinating Agency. "Incorrectly placed sandbags will soon fail and a lot of hard work gets washed away." Everyone attending the class will get to fill and properly place a few sandbags, said Good.

   To register for sandbagging, contact Dan Good at 425-776-3722. Class size is limited. Please register early! Dress warmly and bring some work gloves.
