A huge thank you to Brandy LeBlanc and Girl Scout Troop 43752 along with Snohomish County Councilmember Terry Ryan for securing a $5,000 grant to continue the paved trail at Matt Hirvela Bicentennial Park. This trail has been constructed with grant funds and volunteer labor, one section at a time. Thanks to all the scouts and neighbors who have helped improve this park over the last several years. What a great contribution for our community!
