Funds solicited for LL fireworks
The community-funded fireworks show launches around 10 p.m. July 4 from a floating dock on the lake and can be seen from Pavillion Park. Contributions to the Liberty Lake Fireworks fund can be mailed to P.O. Box 430, Liberty Lake, WA 99019.
Goats are back in town
Goats returned to Liberty Lake mid-June for the seasonal weed patrol. As of press time, a pen was set up at Rocky Hill but they may be moved to other locations such as the arboretum and Pavillion Park.
City parks and open space superintendent Jennifer Camp said they will have a smaller herd this year but they are already drawing attention from local kids.
"The goals are currently doing what they do best at Rocky Hill Park," Camp said via email. "They will be moving throughout the city parks keeping the weeds down naturally."
Exchange families needed
The local coordinator of a Japanese exchange program is looking for families in the Liberty Lake and Otis Orchards area to host 15- to16-year old students from July 22 to Aug. 11. There is also a need for families to house adults accompanying the youth during the three-week time period.
LLCD photo contest under way
The Liberty Lake Community Directory is looking for photos that convey what makes Liberty Lake a unique place to live for its fifth annual photo contest.
