LDS To Spruce Up Rathdrum

A North Idaho town will soon get a boost from a bunch of friends it probably never knew it had. Led by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but including folks from many other walks of life, Rathdrum will be the beneficiary of more than six community service projects all in one day: Saturday, Sept. 14. It's called, “Working together to make things better.” Majestic Park, the community's recreational centerpiece, will be the primary focus as volunteers construct a concession facility with restrooms — from start to finish, top to bottom, countertop to wash basins - all in one day. Among the other high priority projects is painting the Masonic Lodge in the heart of the community's historic district. Windows that now are boarded up will be examined and, if possible, repaired or even replaced/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Have you been part of a community project to spruce up your town?
