Hi folks –

It’s My Park Day will be Marth 7th, 2009. Allandale was one of the first neighborhoods to participate in It’s My Park Day, and the tradition continues this year.

This year there are two exciting locations: Austin Memorial Park, and Northwest Park.

We need volunteers to act as site contacts on the day of the event. The site contact is the central location for the volunteers at each clean up, they sign in volunteers, hand out t-shirts, and distribute snacks and water. They do need to be at least 18 years old, and available for at least 1 hour on April 12th between 9:00 AM – 05:00 PM.  They do not need to trim brush, pick up trash etc.

The site contact is really an ambassador for Allandale, it is a great way to meet neighbors.

Please help encourage participation. These events build awareness of our parks and their value to our community

Volunteers that sign up online can get a t-shirt: http://www.austinparks.org/itsmypark.html
