Liberty Lake City Council members will serve free ice cream prior to the concert at 5:30 p.m. The park is at Country Vista Drive and Molter Road.

Offices closed; pool hours change

SPOKANE VALLEY – Spokane Valley city offices will be closed on Monday in observance of Labor Day and will reopen on Tuesday.

Terrace View Pool, 13525 N. 24th Ave., will remain open through Labor Day weekend. Holiday pool hours today through Labor Day are 1 to 3 p.m.; 4 to 6 p.m.; and 6:15 to 8 p.m.

Cost to swim is $1. Children age 5 and younger are admitted free and must be accompanied by a paying adult. A weekend family discount includes one child age 12 or younger to swim free with each paying adult.

Wednesday is Good Neighbor Day

SPOKANE VALLEY – Appleway Florist and Greenhouse, 11006 E. Sprague Ave., will host the annual FTD Good Neighbor Day on Wednesday at 10 a.m.

In honor of the event, Appleway is giving away 2,400 flowers in bunches of a dozen to those who visit the shop, while supplies last. The catch, as proposed by Monty Lewis, the owner of Appleway, is that participants who take a dozen free flowers keep one for themselves and give the others 11 away to spread goodwill and friendship in the community.

For more information, call (509) 924-5050.

Speed limits reduced around schools

SPOKANE VALLEY – The city of Spokane Valley is reminding drivers to observe reduced speed limits around area schools when children are present.

According to a city press release, “when children are present” is defined by the Washington Administrative Code 392-151-035 as “when school children are occupying or walking within a marked crosswalk, are occupying or waiting at the curb or shoulder of the roadway and are about to cross the roadway, or are present and walking along the roadway.”

Central Valley students return to classes Tuesday, the last of area schools to open.

Flashing beacons alert drivers to reduced speed zone limits near many Spokane Valley elementary schools.
