West Seattle weekend scene: Volunteering in the rain

Despite the downpour, a scheduled garden/grounds-beautifying work party went ahead as scheduled at West Seattle High School today – with volunteers from Seattle Pacific University helping at the work party organized by Janet Jones for the third year. Janet’s husband Bryan Jones, who shared the photo, noted “it’s the first year they should have brought snorkel and fins… (but) there are smiling faces amongst the dirt and rain; it’s a hardy and happy group of students that come every year! And Janet is also grateful for the on-site assistance and active help from Seattle Public Schools gardener(s).”

(P.S. This is one of four locations in West Seattle – in addition to many others around the city – where SPU freshmen and transfers were scheduled to help out as part of the school’s annual CityQuest event.)

    The Seattle Pacific University students are the best! They helped our group with really TOUGH invasives last year at the Genesee Hill School and they didn’t flinch! Thank you, students, you really are the best!

Sorry, comment time is over.
