Friends of Overington Park hosted our 5th annual Art Under The Trees this past Saturday September 19th form 12 to 3. We had 28 children from age 2 to 18 come out and enter our chalk art contest. They did an amazing job. Inspired by master art works they selected a painting collected their chalk and went to town creating their art work in the shade of Overington Park’s beautiful trees. There were no losers that day, only winners, that came out and gave it their all!
The art continued with FOOP members manning our crafts table, folding origami dogs and cat finger puppets, and other critters. After you finished your chalk art it was time to learn to make origami. Refreshments were served, and a good time was had by all! Our thanks goes out to our FOOP team for all their hard work getting our event together, the Frankford High JR ROTC, couldn’t do it without them, our State Representative Jason Dawkins and Maria Quinones Sanchez for their constant support.
Our next event will be our Fall Festival on Saturday October 17th, from 12 to 3. We will have a Pumpkin Patch for the little ones, Craft project, Games, Fun and Candy so come out and have a great time celebrating the Fall in Frankford!
