Community Spring Egg Hunt
On April 11, 2009, Friends of the West End Park will host a Spring Egg Hunt free to children in the community under the age of 8. Festivities begin at 11am. Adult supervision required. Thanks to WEND for donating $100 to make this event a reality and to Stephanie, Mary and all other community members who donated eggs and prizes.
DONATIONS NEEDED for Earth Day Celebrations
On April 18, the West End Park will have over 30 volunteers gathering to make improvements. The volunteers will clean the park, plant flowers & 1 fruit tree and mulch. There’s a couple of projects we would like to also accomplish but we need donations to make it happen! We would like to purchase posts and concrete to keep cars off the park’s turf. As you know, the City of Atlanta is going through a major budget crisis and there isn’t money to repair damaged turf. We would also like to build a bulletin board and need materials. Lastly, we would love to build planters for our children’s garden. If anyone is interested in making a donation just comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks to Trees Atlanta for donating our first fruit tree! Who is next?
How do I get Involved?
Friends of the West End Park will meet on April 15, 2009 @ 7pm. We’ll be at the Grounds Coffee House. Soon, our meetings will move to the park! At our next meeting we will discuss the first phases of our design: plantings: children’s garden/berry hill and sidewalks. We will also discuss Earth Day and debrief on Spring Egg Hunt. We will also discuss upcoming events at the park.
