PHOTOS: Local LDS Churches Chip In At Seahurst Park For Day Of Service
On Saturday (Sept. 17) ten congregations from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined together at Seahurst Park to conduct one of the largest volunteer work parties ever held at the park.
The occasion of the event was the second annual LDS Day of Service, an opportunity for church members to perform meaningful service projects within their communities.
The project at Seahurst Park was coordinated by LDS member Job Bork, who contacted Burien Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services with a suggestion that local churches invest their efforts here in Burien.
“We’ve had big picnics at this park, so this is a great venue for us to do service in. They were great enough to allow us to come in and do this,” said Bork.
The work kicked off at 9am on Saturday, with nearly one hundred volunteers on hand to remove invasive plants and do other clean up along the south beach. Up to one hundred more volunteers were expected to participate throughout the day.
