Disc golf course is just one example of volunteer efforts improving Snoqaulmie Valley | Letter

Dear Snoqualmie Valley, On Saturday, Aug. 26, I and 11 volunteers, including six Boy Scouts, installed a disc golf mini course at North Bend’s E.J. Roberts Park as my Eagle project. This project was the result of over two years of planning and over 100 hours of volunteer work by many, including people that were not part of the work crew at the park.

It is just a four-target course and the targets are mostly par 2 but I hope that people find it a fun activity and will come out to play. I chose a disc golf course as my Eagle project because it is a growing sport and anyone can play without spending a lot of money for equipment and it’s a way to go out and enjoy the outdoors as a family.

I am also writing this to make people aware that there are many volunteer groups and organizations that do things in our community that are not always known.

Every Boy Scout who becomes an Eagle Scout has to do a project for the community or organizations and has had to put in many volunteer hours for each rank. Girl Scouts, Mount Si High School’s National Honor Society members and Key Club all volunteer to do things in our community but it’s often not as things that are apparent.

I hope that while people enjoy the disc golf course, benches along pathways, signs identifying mountaintops or plants, trails, and other results of volunteer efforts, that they will think of the volunteer groups and will be encouraged to support when a group needs to do fundraising, or volunteer their time and skills to help out.
