Working together as families, friends and neighbors made the time go by quickly and added to the excitement of the day. Making new friends is an added bonus for many who spent their Saturday giving back. “Projects like these bring people togeth- er,” Audrey Morgan said. “You get to know people you may not know otherwise.” ' While folks finished up their work at Kid’s Oasis, others were painting the outside of the City’s 40,000 square foot industrial building on 13lst St. NE. Even more people were at Machias Cemetery cleaning off headstones, cutting down tree limbs and adding beauty bark to gravesites. “A lot of our Ward (congregation) mem— bers have family here," Teri Scott said. “It’s a community cemetery and we are part of this community. We have to help where we are needed.” A Staining Kid's ais is one of the projects completed for the Northwest Day of Service on Saturday, Sept. 17. The Home familyworked together taking moss off of a headstone and clearing the ' grass around the plot. Teaching by example is an important part of serving. “We made it a family project," explained Elaine Horne, mother of four. “It’s important for them (her children) to do something out- side of themselves. It sets a good precedent for others to follow." As the rain started to fall, those giving service were just finishing up the projects around lake Stevens. Many were laughing and all of them had smiles on their faces. On the first Day of Service Northwest, September 11, 2010, more than 14,000 vol- unteers throughout Washington, Oregon and northern Idaho gave more than 35,000 hours of service partnering with others in their communities with projects such as large-scale food drives, blood drives, wet- lands restorations, parks and trails work and much more. In Lake Stevens community members worked together to paint City Hall and the Permit Center and to clean the grounds at local schools and fire stations. Thanks to Albertsons, Ace Hardware, Lake Stevens School District and the City of Lake Stevens for helping with donations to complete the projects. ' l Photo by Pam Stevens Dr. Tracy L. DeLorm, D.D.S.
