    Keeping Pine River Park Open
    by Lance Pounder
    The Friends of Little Spokane River Valley helped keep Pine River Park open yet another year. Our main duties were to maintain the lawns and pay the water bill. Spokane County Parks provided portable toilets, road oiling, garbage dumpster, and start up maintenance of the sprinkler system.

    Because of the late spring we were able to save some money, as mowing and watering were not needed as soon as expected.

    I would like to thank all of the people that volunteered their time to help pick up trash. This year we did not put out garbage cans in hopes that park users would put their trash directly into the dumpster, which was a success. This saved us from having to empty trash cans into the dumpster, sometimes numerous times a day on hot weekends. During the summer I would go down to the park to check on things and would be very impressed at how clean it was.

    I don?t know everybody that helped out, but to all that did I give a big Thank You.

    All in all I think this year went well.

    This summer I noticed on a lot of the hot days the parking lot would be full. Again I would like to thank all that made this a big success, and it was great to have our neighborhood park open another year.
