Several community groups came together to make the Olympic Peninsula a cleaner place to live.

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, youths from the Sequim Boys & Girls Club hosted members of the North Olympic Land Trust and Port Angeles School District AmeriCorps program, with about 70 individuals participating.

After a lunch, participants split up into four locations along the Olympic Discovery Trail in need of general trail maintenance such as trash pick-up, vegetation removal, cutting back moss that is creeping over the trail, and cutting back brush.

Right: Pieces of Civil War veteran Moore Waldron’s headstone can be seen in the right-hand corner of this photograph. Historical preservationist Mick Hersey, left, and the Taylor family of Gig Harbor returned the pieces to the Pioneer Memorial Park of Sequim for their friends the Englands (Moore’s descendants). The Englands read in the Sequim Gazette about the Sequim Garden Club’s preservation efforts at the park and decided to return these pieces for restoration. Moore now will have two markers in the park, as the Veteran’s Administration commissioned a new stone for Waldron in 2017 — an article about which can also be found on the Sequim Gazettte’s website. Moore moved to Sequim with his family in 1905 and died in 1908. Moore had five children and has descendants in Sequim and Pierce County as well as other places. Moore’s great-grandson is the founder of the Waldron Endoscopy Center in Tacoma, according to Cheryl England. Sequim Gazette photo by Emily Matthiessen
