City Manager’s Report for week ending April 2, 2022

Announcing the Arbor Day Poster Contest
On April 30th, the City of Normandy Park will be hosting an Arbor Day Celebration, and we want you to celebrate with us! The event will be a fun interactive event for the entire family. As part of the festivities, the city is hosting an all-age art poster contest.

The contest’s theme is “If I Were a Tree.” The theme is designed to provide wonder and inspire a greater appreciation of the beautiful assortment of trees that make up Normandy Park’s community forest. There will be four winning entries, one from each of the following categories: elementary school, middle school, high school, and adult. First-place winners for each category will receive a prize package. Winners will be announced at the Arbor Day Celebration.

Join us on Saturday, April 30th, at Marvista Park from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.. For more information, contact City Hall at 206.248.7603.
