Park Day on Sunday!

We’re looking forward to the rescheduled Park Day on Sunday, November 1 from 11-230. Below is the updated schedule of events and activities for the day:

11-12: Volunteer activities, including wildflower seed spreading, trail landscaping, and kiosk building.  Most volunteers are needed for landscaping and seed spreading. If you are handy/have carpentry skills, we also need just a couple more volunteers to help Councilman Kleinman with the kiosk building.

12-1: Lunch served by Hamburger Man, as well as desserts from Corner Bakery. Corner Bakery is supplying coffee and lemonade as well. And free coupons for Frost Gelato to the first 100 participants.

12-2: Family fun run and exercise classes presented by Cross Fit Odyssey.

1-2: Canine Costume Contest with prizes for the winners from Hollywood Feed. Hollywood Feed has goodie bags for the attendees as well.

1:30-2:30: Face painting for the kids.

All event: EARS Dog Rescue (www.earstexas.org) will be on site for a meet & greet mobile with adoptable dogs.

We look forward to a great time on Sunday. The weather forecast is perfect – sunny with a high of 75.
