We raised money for park events by selling donated perennials plants from Frankford gardeners. Sending out the greening wave through the neighborhood. The benefits should be coming up in gardens around Frankford for years to come. We planted donated annuals from PHS in beds around the park. Tropical Cannas bulbs were planted (the big red ones) in beds with sunflower seeds.
As summer moves on the giants will emerge out of our flower beds. Frankford Garden Club members, Frankford High JR ROTC, FOOP (Friends of Overington Park) members, families and neighbors came out to help sell plants and plant park flower beds. The beauty of all this hard work can be seen in the flower beds and the fellowship of a community pulling together for the good of everyone. Thanks to all who came out to to lend a hand in one way or another. Your caring and help are what makes Overington Park a special place for all to share and enjoy!
Don’t forget our next event on June 9th from 11 to 3. Our Second Annual Frankford Greening Meet and Greet. All who plant and grow in Frankford are invited to join us for live music, a salsa dip contest, pot luck picnic, and sharing our Frankford greening success stories! Hope to see you there, Diane Kunze president Friends of Overington Park
