One of the best places to spend a sunny Friday afternoon is in a park enjoying the warm weather and building relationships. That’s how a group of Clover Park Technical College students, faculty and staff spent several hours on Friday, July 29, offering free haircuts, face painting and numerous other activities to local residents at Lakewood’s Springbrook Park.
