Moms clean up Duvall's Taylor Park

by Kehly McCue
   DUVALL - What do a group of moms do when their town park is in shambles and they have to drive to a neighboring town so their kids can play? They clean up their own park! That's exactly what the MOM'S Club of Duvall did on Saturday, April 7.
   MOM'S Club is a national, non-profit organization specifically for stay-at-home moms. "MOM'S" stands for Moms Offering Mom's Support. Every year they host a service project that benefits not only the members, but also the community as a whole. This year they decided to get together and clean up Taylor Park in Duvall.
   The members, as well as their husbands, teamed up with wheelbarrows, rakes, shovels and a power washer to tidy the park up. Leaves were raked and the picnic benches, gazebo and play structures were power washed. The grass was treated in hopes that it will come back green and healthy. The sidewalks and basketball court were power washed and are now moss free. There are also two new basketball nets for the basketball court. The final glorification item was 20 yards of new play chips.
   Everyone worked hard, had a good time and are very proud of their accomplishments. MOM'S Club is appreciative of generous contributions from Duvall True Value Hardware, Red-e Top Soil of Redmond, Michael Skaggs Associates and Domino's Pizza of Duvall.
   MOM'S Club invites everyone to visit the newly refurbished park and hopes that the families of Duvall enjoy the park this spring and summer. For more information about the Duvall Chapter of MOM'S Club, call Kehly McCue at (425) 844-4477.
