PHOTO: Port Angeles park gets cleanup day

Volunteers Louise Rose, left, and Lashanna Peterson, both of Port Angeles, drag a tarp filled with tree branches as part of a work party to help clean up Jessie Webster Park in Port Angeles on Saturday.

Clean-up organizer Emily Last said the Port Angeles Parks and Recreation Department has been overwhelemed by damage caused by windstorms last December and that a volunteer effort would help to make the park usable again.

Last said a second clean-up day is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Feb. 9, and that those wishing to help should bring gloves and heavy shoes, and that rakes would be welcome.
