Lots of wheelbarrows, rakes and shovels were in action when the young men and women from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Brookings ascended on Stout Park Wednesday evening to spread wood chips around the trees and bushes.  

The city is sprucing up the park in preparation for the Festival of Art in Stout Park, which is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 3 and 4.  This was a community service activity for the youth.

Overall attendance and donations were down  at the third-annual Friends of Brookings-Harbor Aquatic Center Fourth of July Barbecue and Field Day but, overall, organizers said the event was a success.

“I believe the Fourth of July Barbecue and Field Day event was well received again this year,” said Juliane Leighton, FBHAC chair.

Although there were more cooks this year than in many years past, the number of people attending the event was down.

As a result of the lower attendance, the 16th annual Chili Cookoff at the Port of Brookings Harbor boardwalk raised only $1,005 for Oasis Shelter Home in Gold Beach, down from $1,334, in 2012, which was below the $1,456 raised the year before that.

In preparation for the crowds that will be gathering on Sporthaven Beach to view Thursday’s Fourth of July fireworks, a few people took a moment to clean up.

What did these people do with what they found? They made art and entered it in the third annual Driftwood Art and Fun Frenetic Sculpture Contest.
