Volunteers to gather for Battle Ground Community Day of Service

BATTLE GROUND — Battle Ground is joining Clark County Connects’ annual Day of Service on Sat., Sept. 9. This is the 2nd year of Battle Ground’s participation in the annual county-wide effort. Volunteers find that connecting with neighbors to accomplish goals, big or small, makes for a strong community!

The Battle Ground work party, organized by the city’s Parks & Recreation Department, is scheduled for the morning of Sat., Sept. 9 from 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers will be caring for public places by cleaning up litter, raking and weeding flower beds, and spreading bark chips at two locations: Kiwanis Park at 422 SW 2nd Ave and at City Hall located at 109 SW 1st St.

While the hope is for cooperative weather, the work will carry on rain or shine; participants should dress appropriately for the weather and for the work at hand. A limited supply of tools and equipment will be available, but participants are asked to bring their own work gloves, gardening tools and, if possible, wheelbarrows. The Parks & Recreation Department will provide refreshments.

Individuals, families and groups are welcome and encouraged to participate. A responsible adult must accompany minors and take care to manage younger children appropriately in a work environment. We ask that scout groups, organizations or other groups of six or more register in advance. Individuals and families may register as they arrive onsite.

To register as a group, or for more information, contact Battle Ground Parks & Recreation at (360) 342-5380 or by email atbgparksandrec@cityofbg.org .
