Looking forward to 2021? We are too! Lots of fun ahead, including the Green Hills Park Festival (planned for Sept. 11, 2021) and continued work toward building a shade pavilion by the water fountain. To make next year a success, we could use your help:
- For the Festival, we would love it if you could volunteer to lend a hand. For example, would you like to line up the five food trucks? Help rustle up donations for a silent auction or find new sponsors? Help out on the day of the event? Girl scouts, boy scouts, and other organizations that would like volunteer hours are very welcome!
- Fyi, the shade pavilion is taking longer than expected (and is going to be more expensive) due to the Parks Department's understandable process for assuring that the structure will be super sturdy and meet all applicable Codes requirements. Thank you so very much to everyone who has contributed so far - every donation is appreciated. Can you chip in to get us to the finish line? Venmo @friendsofghpark or click the donate button here to donate by credit card or paypal.
And, there are other ways to show your love for the park - would you like to remove invasive plants or plant new ones? Paint the fence? Help the Friends group apply for a grant? Let us know your talents and interests to make a difference in our community in 2021.
2020 has been an odd year for humans, but a good one for the park! It's been a well-used community resource for exercise, games and meeting friends.
This summer we had a donor chip in especially for three disc golf baskets, which have been placed on the western edge of the park. Are you enjoying them? Email us at email@example.com to let us know what you think and to give us your ideas for what improvements you'd like to see in Green Hills Park.
--Did you lose keys in the park? A set of house keys was found by the pavilion. Call or text Lora Fox at 615-496-0464 if you think they might be yours and i.d. the keychain.
Best wishes for 2021!
