Beautify Kenmore!

Friday - Sunday, April 21, 22 & 23, 2017


A day to “give back” to the community. Celebrate Earth Day by picking up litter or beautifying the common space around your neighborhood. 

Come participate in the annual "Beautify Kenmore" event taking place Friday, April 21, through Sunday, April 23! This event takes place across Kenmore and is organized by YOU!

Perhaps you and your neighbors want to get together and beautify your street. Or you simply want to make your driveway look the best on the block. Gather your soil, flowers, gardening gloves, shovels, friends and family and head outside that weekend and help beautify Kenmore. This community event is volunteer-based and is a great way to get to know your neighbors and foster a sense of community. 

Please contact Melodi Yanik, Communications Assistant, at communications@kenmorewa.gov, with your thoughts and plans on beautifying Kenmore April 21 - 23.
