Park design needs to include Scouts’ needs

For the past six years, the corner of Snoqualmie Parkway and Highway 202 has been a hotspot during the holiday season.

For the past six years, the corner of Snoqualmie Parkway and Highway 202 has been a hotspot during the holiday season.

The Christmas tree lot that resides at this location is not run by a corporate company, but rather a youth organization, Snoqualmie Valley Venturing Crew. This tree lot, which provides Christmas trees to over 1,000 families every year, is an opportunity for our high adventure group to raise money for all of our different outdoor and public service programs.

Snoqualmie Valley Venturing Crew is grateful for the support the community has given us for so long, and hopes that this support continues as our location is set to become a park in the near future. This location is vital to the existence of our crew, so, in order to continue our Christmas tree sales, we hope the design of the park will include input from our group.
