New park district

A great deal of work has gone into getting a Fall City Metropolitan Park District initiative on the ballot. While this was the first, and key step in bringing a local park district into reality, the fundamental task now at hand is the passage of the ballot initiative.

As a result, the Fall City Metropolitan Park District Campaign Action Team was created to help our community understand the benefits of a park district.

"Living, Playing, Building Community" is our slogan. This was the theme of our Fall City Days award-winning float. Lots of interested folks visited our booth. Some dropped by to chat and learn more. Some came for the games. And some wanted to win the iPod. Anyone who lived in the proposed district boundary could participate in the contest. The winner was Karen Hunt.

Many cheerful volunteers helped to make our Fall City Parks debut an eventful one. Special thanks to Wells Rockeries and Landscaping and Lawrence Construction for float contributions. We are especially grateful to the dedicated Fall City Days organizers who bring our families together on Fall City Days year after year.

If you are serious about local control of Fall City parks and the opportunities a park district can provide, please participate! Visit our Web site, www.fallcityparks.org; e-mail Perry Wilkins, perrycwilkins@yahoo.com; watch for us at local events; and join us at our next Fall City Parks meeting, 7 p.m. July 9 at the Fall City Library.
