Celebrating the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. with a day of service

Following the annual Garfield High School Martin Luther King, Jr. rally, Mayor Murray, Deputy Mayor Kate Joncas, and Mayor’s office staffers participated in the National Day of Service. The Mayor’s office joined the Nature Consortium, students from the University of Washington, and current Miss Seattle Taryn Smith to plant native trees and spread mulch to help restore the¬†West Duwamish greenbelt.
