This past Saturday Overington Park held its Love Your Park day. 56 volunteers cleaned up Lieper street along the park, collecting over 50 bags of leaves, dug up 14 crates of tender tropical Cannas bulbs to be stored for winter, and planted 700 daffodils that should show themselves this coming spring.
Candy from our cancelled Halloween event and soft pretzels were enjoyed by all. 30 recycling buckets were given away. The PAWS group set up in the park giving out pet food, collars, and leashes. Low cost shots and micro-chips were available.
Once again the Frankford High School ROTC came out in force to help us power through the day. Thanks to all who came out to lend a hand or get some care for their pets, making our Love Your Park event a rousing success.
Our last event for 2011 will be Holiday Caroling in the park. Friday December 16th from 7 to 8 in the evening. This will be the second year for this event. Please come out and spend one hour with your neighbors sharing the spirt of the holidays. Wear a holiday hat if you have one and join us! It may be cold outside but the carols and the camaraderie will warm your heart.
Thanks to all for your support of the Friends of Overington Park!
