4th Annual "Gigging Up the Harbor

Gig Harbor, WA - The Gig Harbor Downtown Waterfront Alliance has announced that their 4th Annual downtown waterfront clean-up day is scheduled for Saturday, May 19, 9am to 12:00noon. Under the direction of the Alliance's Design Committee, last year's "Gigging Up the Harbor" saw over seventy volunteers show up to sweep, weed, plant flower beds, and more.

This is a great opportunity for people to put their community pride into action. It is a BYOT event (bring your own tools, including gloves, shovels, rakes, etc). Meet at Skansie Brothers Park at 9am to receive your assigned work area and pick up your safety vest, and join others as we help get the downtown waterfront ready for our summer visitors. Then plan to join the entire group back at Skansie Park at 12:00 noon for a volunteer appreciation lunch generously provided by area restaurants and businesses.

Gather your friends, neighbors, service and youth groups and help the Alliance and the downtown waterfront "Gig up the Harbor". For more information contact the Alliance at 253-514-0071 or
