Thrasher's Pub Golf Tournament successful fundraiser for Parks golfer cartoon scholarship/sponsorship program


Thanks to Thrasher's Pub and to all those who participated in this year's golf tournament, $2,000 was raised to contribute to the Snohomish County Parks Sponsorship Program.

These funds help those in financial need pay for children's swimming lessons, swim team participation, art camps, lego camps and other activities that they would not be able to participate in if these funds were not available.

County Executive Lovick greets movie patrons this summer

Thank you, Sundquist Homes, for sponsoring the 9th annual movie series  at Willis Tucker Park again this summer.  The Mill Creek Lions Club and BridgeCity Church also partnered with Snohomish County Parks and Sundquist Homes to make a special evening in the park each week. 

Mill Creek Lions Club provided food and beverage to movie attendees and generously donated to the sponsorship/ scholarship program. BridgeCity Church provided all of the pre-movie entertainment.

And, of course, a big thank you to our South Ranger Team for setting up/breaking down/cleaning up and providing traffic control/direction, sometimes up to midnight!

Be sure to join us next year when we attempt to set a Guiness World Record on Thursday, August 18, for the most people dressed as Minions!
