In October 2009, the Peninsula Daily News ran a story about the renaming of our service project to Gateway Park.

Gateway Park

Since 2004, Soroptimists have maintained the Port Townsend park at the corner of Kearney and Sims Way, formerly known as Willow Tree Park. The city-owned triangle of land was a jungle, when we first proposed the service project to the city fathers (and mothers).
