Close to 90 Windermere real estate agents from across Whatcom County gathered at Bay Horizon Park in Birch Bay on June 15 for the company’s annual community service day. Agents volunteered for four hours on the sunny Friday morning to spruce up the Lions Camp Horizon grounds.

“We are just thrilled,” said Jan Polen, president of the Lions Camp Horizon Foundation. Volunteers mowed grass, repainted handrails, relined tennis courts and, most significantly, built a wheelchair access ramp from the parking lot to the camp’s main building. Businesses throughout the county donated materials and equipment.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better day,” Polen said.
