Day of Service returns to Marysville Sept. 15

MARYSVILLE — A park project begun last year will continue to benefit from the annual National Day of Service and Remembrance.

This year's Day of Service for Marysville will return to the Doleshel Tree Farm Park, located at 9002 67th Ave. NE in Marysville, on Saturday, Sept. 17, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Christina Foley, media relations specialist for the Marysville Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, explained that the church is once again sponsoring the project.

"We'll be building on the progress made last September," said Foley, who explained that the project's primary focus is to prepare the property to become a park. "This will include trimming trees, massive weed-eating, removing blackberries and putting a large amount of deadwood into chippers, to spread as we develop and rebuild trails."

Volunteers of all faiths and affiliations are welcome to join the Marysville Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as its members work in conjunction with the city of Marysville's Parks Department to clean and organize the area, and Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring will even speak to the volunteers to help kick off the event.

"The purpose of our efforts is to help ensure safe access, and to provide 11 acres for families where they and their children can picnic, play and run," Foley said.
