Shout out to the weeders

When you don’t keep up on the weeding, the weeds can quickly take over. It happens in my yard and it had been happening along Charleston Boulevard, the gateway to Bremerton.

An army arrived Tuesday to dig them up. It was led by the Navy — a group from visiting submarine USS Bremerton — volunteers from Kitsap Community Resources and Bremerton Public Works employees. It’s hard place to shut down traffic, so it was nice to have such a big work party, said parks director Wyn Birkenthal. Last Wednesday, a Parks crew got started, but didn’t get very far.

“With all those hands, they made much more progress yesterday,” Birkenthal said.

“It’s hard to get to. It requires a special (traffic) arrangement and the amount of weeding that needs to be done … Both the sides and the middle are over a mile of landscaping.”

It looks much nicer now. Thanks.
