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.

Volunteers unexpectedly came upon a hornets nest as well and despite a few stings (none to the children) they were able to kill most of the hornets.
