The Carnation congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints completed their annual Day of Service project on Saturday, Sept. 15.
Forty-five volunteers worked to clean up Loutsis Park along the Snoqualmie Valley Trail in Carnation. They limbed trees to a more comfortable height but were careful not to touch any of the trees on the disc golf course. They also trimmed weeds and gathered wheelbarrows full of leaves, twigs and fallen branches, cleared off a moss covered picnic table and weeded the flower beds. They pulled up all the grass covering the flower beds and replaced it with cedar mulch.

While the freshman campus and high school discussions will come back to the board Thursday, Nov. 29, the middle school boundaries were approved in a 3-0 vote.
Board members Scott Hodgins, Geoff Doy and Marci Busby voted in favor of the staff-recommended Option F, and Carolyn Simpson abstained from voting, citing several "very strong and grave concerns" about the decision and its relationship with the freshman campus.
