Meet Clark the Shark
How did Clark become our mascot?
Clark is very friendly Salmon shark but all the creatures in Puget Sound are scared of him because he feeds on fish. After all, he does get hungry. So, he wanted to have people to talk to. One day, he was swimming near Meadowdale Beach when he spotted a strange, dark blob. When he swam up to it he discovered it was a hole. Curious, Clark swam into the hole. He swam a long time when finally he saw light ahead. All of a sudden, Clark came bursting out of the hole landing in a giant blue tube. Clark rode the slide and splash landed into the Recreation Center pool. When he emerged from the slide, Clark was surrounded by all sorts of friendly people who welcomed him to the pool saying, "Hey, we have been looking for a mascot. We'd love you to be a volunteer!" Clark agreed and became the Lynnwood Recreation Center's official mascot. Clark loves it here!
Clark's biography was provided by Sarah H, 9 yrs
