Is it Lemonade and Cookie time in Marysville? | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

The meaning behind Lemonade and Cookies began in the spring of 2012.

The meaning behind Lemonade and Cookies began in the spring of 2012.

A push to clean up Marysville businesses and neighborhoods finally took shape in 2012. The Pride of Marysville project was implemented and for the first year, it was very successful and the winners were truly representative of the “Best that is Marysville!” It is time again for that project to take shape.

It is time for all residents to get up, get out and begin the tasks of Spring and Summer Clean Up. We all know that fall and winter can leave big messes in our yards and make the outside of our homes weather beaten and in need of paint, windows need washing. Not only does this go for our homes and neighborhoods, but also for the business community. The outside of all businesses take a beating and regular maintenance is very important to the longevity of the buildings. Attracting and keeping business is very important, and I don’t know about you, but a business with a dirty exterior and graffiti all over the outside walls, people hanging out around the building, not to mention a messy interior, will not get my business, and I am sure I speak for a lot of other people as well.

It’s time Marysville to clean it up. Get out there and clean up your homes and property. Mow your lawns, clean out the flower beds, wash the windows and paint if needed. While you are at it, open your windows and let the sunshine and fresh air in, you would be amazed at how wonderful it can make you feel. Taking a little extra care and time with your property, and encouraging others in your neighborhood to do the same, could gain you the 2013 Pride of Marysville Award, and also increase the value of your property. Believe me, it is well worth the effort, and after all, we don’t want Everett to be the only city with Community Pride in their appearance.

Now that you are done with your home, check around your neighborhood to see if there is someone that you can help clean up their property, especially senior citizens. They can always use some extra help, and their thank you’s are the best! Helping others is a wonderful experience and it makes you feel good inside, and you never know, you may end up with Lemonade and Cookies — there is no better thank you than that.
