The fields at the park are getting a much needed dose of compost today thanks to a collaboration among the Committee, the City Public Works/Parks Dept. and Konocti Youth Soccer League President, Wayne Yahnke. A HUGE thank you to Cole Creek Compost for donating the material and Forrest Kuecker Trucking for all of the free trucking to bring the material to the Park from Potter Valley. Paul Lauenroth Trucking of Kelseyville provided the spreader. We always say that the Park is a product of the support from the community.
Thanks to the leadership of Konocti Youth Soccer League President, Wayne Yahnke, a concession stand is nearing completion. This project is being funded by the Konocti Youth Soccer League, Westshore Little League and the Westside Community Park Committee. Many local merchants and volunteers have contributed to make this possible. They will be listed in our next post with the a picture of the completed building.
The sign went up today identifying the site of the Horse Park adjacent to Highway 175. A big, “THANK YOU!” to WCPC board member, Jaxan Christensen, and her husband, Walt, for making this happen. The engineering is almost complete for the entrance off of the highway. That will be submitted to Caltrans to obtain the required encroachment permit.
The Committee received a check for $360 from the Network for Good. It was a pleasant surprise. IF YOU WERE ONE OF THE ANONYMOUS DONORS, WE GREATLY APPRECIATE IT. It will help off set the revenue lost from ticket sales for the cancelled Grillin’ on the Green.
Since we were unable to acknowledge our generous sponsors for this year’s Grillin’ on the Green do to the cancellation caused by the fire. We want to do it here. We appreciate all of them!!!

The Commemorative Bricks have been added to the Memorial Grove. The Committee appreciates the patience of those who ordered them. As an all volunteer group with a limited budget it sometimes takes longer than we like to accomplish things.
A huge think you to Gary and Brian Milhaupt of Sundance Tile for volunteering their talent and time to complete this project. It was certainly worth waiting for them to available. The installation took place over a three day period.
We thank Justin at the Lakeport Cinema 5 for his support of Grillin’ on the Green. Click here to see the ad that is running at the theater now.
The Committee recently took possession of a new Husqvarna commercial lawn mower. We thank Jim Mayfield, owner of Rainbow Ag, for selling the mower at cost. This saved more than $2,500. The used mower which had been purchased years ago at auction had gotten to be to difficult to keep operational.
This year’s Fun Walk & Run took place on Sunday, May 27, 2018. Participants enjoyed a beautiful morning at the park. The Committee thanks Guy Strohmeier’s Auto Center for the use of a van to shuttle people back to the park from the end of the run at the Kiwanis Craft Fair.
The Clear Lake Trowel & Trellis Garden Club has completed replanting the landscaping around the entry sign on Parallel Drive. What a huge improvement! The plant selection and placement is great. As the plants grow and mature the low sign will still be visible. See the picture below with Garden Club members and the Kiwanis Club of Lakeport members who helped with shoveling gravel. In addition to thanking the Trowel & Trellis Club, we also thank RB Peters for his donation, the park’s neighbor to the North, the TANF office, for allowing a connection to their water service to supple irrigation water (They are paying for the increased water usage as well!) and to Jim Ruzicka who completed the water connection and ran the line across the creek where we were able to connect.
