The City of Sequim is still accepting volunteers to participate in the National Day of Service and Remembrance on the morning of Saturday, September 8, 2012. Volunteers will join with members of the Sequim City Council and city staff in community service projects throughout the City.

The day will begin at 8:00 a.m. with an opening ceremony at Carrie Blake Park, 202 N. Blake Avenue. After the ceremony participants will disperse to begin working on clean-up and maintenance of City facilities and parks. The community work session will conclude at approximately 12:00 noon.

Projects still needing volunteers include:
• Paint fire hydrants throughout the City

The City welcomes all individuals and groups of volunteers who want to participate in this day of recognition of the September National Day of Service program. The program began in 2002 to pay tribute to those who were lost and those who rose in service to respond to the 9/11 terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.

The City of Sequim is collaborating with the United Way to coordinate projects and volunteers.
