Another great Beautify Bonney Lake – thanks to volunteers!

2017 Beautify Bonney Lake volunteers and Arts Commissioners

Each year on the third Saturday of September, volunteers from around Bonney Lake gather as a community to work on projects all over the city. The 2017 event happened on September 16, 2017.

We thank all the volunteers who chipped in again this year – as well as the BBL group, city staff, and many sponsors who helped provide supplies, food, and time – all to help create a more beautiful city!

New art on display at Allan Yorke Park

Bonney Lakes Arts Commissioner Glory Cancro, along with local artists Brian Meier and Bryon Koecke of Brazen Hearts Tattoo in Buckley, volunteered their time to paint a new mural at Allan York Park. Also pictured in the photo is Arts Commissioner Suzy Fountaine (decked out in her Seahawks gear).

The new mural was painted on the west wall of the Snack Shack. This is the second mural painted at Allan Yorke Park. The first, commissioned two years ago, was painted on the south side of the restroom.

In the community… Lake Tapps Levels Update

From Cascade Water Alliance (9/25/2017):

The level of Lake Tapps Reservoir is slowing dropping, as Cascade is no longer taking water from the White River, nor is it releasing any water from the reservoir. The reservoir level will remain at about 541.5′ or higher, weather-dependent, through October. Around November 1, Cascade will actively reduce the reservoir to about 539′. Then, in January, it will be lowered to 530′ for project work through mid- to late February. Doing work on property? Get permits and a Cascade license now!

View the original posting from Cascade at www.cascadewater.org or contact Cascade Water Alliance by email (contact@cascadewater.org) or phone (425.453.0930).

Northeast Pierce Community Resource Guide – a link to find help, plus ways to donate and volunteer locally

The Northeast Pierce Community Resource Guide is a volunteer service project that is distributed to schools and agencies in the area and is posted on the City website at www.citybonneylake.org/services.

The guide was recently updated for fall/winter 2017 and includes contacts for general assistance, employment, hot meals, housing, clothing banks, support groups, and health care. It’s also a great resource for people who want to get involved in the community through volunteer service or donations.

Another helpful resource is Washington’s Information Network or 2-1-1 line, which provides referrals and assistance for health and human services.

Visit www.citybonneylake.org/services for information on these and other services in the Bonney Lake area and beyond.
