Beginning at 10 a.m., kids ages 8 to 15 can help build picnic benches with instruction from the Timber Framers Guild members. There is a $25 suggested donation for the Kid’s Build event that includes lunch. Parents and guardians must sign up children in advance.
Parking will be limited, so carpooling is advised.

Pet license renewal
The Everett Animal Shelter is beginning to email pet owners with addresses on file, to remind them to renew pet licenses. It starts with permits set to expire on June 30.
Before, they were sent through the mail. The change will save about $3,400 each year, the shelter estimates.
All cats and dogs who are six months and older living in Everett are required to be licensed. The fees help support the animals who come from the city’s shelter. The licences also make it easier to find the owner of a lost pet.
