Dear Neighbors,

To recognize our graduating Seniors from Barton Hills we’re inviting the entire neighborhood to (safely) come out and cheer for our graduating seniors in a CAR PARADE on May 22, 2020 starting at 6:30pm. Parade route details and rules for parade participants and spectators are below.

We want YOU, each of YOU, to SUPPORT a SENIOR! It doesn’t have to be someone you know. Pick one or more senior. Follow this link to sign up to SUPPORT a SENIOR (or lots of seniors). You don’t have to make an account to sign up. 

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0F4BAAAC2EA64-support

Sign up and then get out your markers, your crayons, your glitter, your paint and make a sign, or banner, or something else fun and creative (and family-friendly) to SUPPORT a SENIOR! Think of how fun it will be for the seniors to see signs of congratulations and support along the route. Each senior has THREE sign up slots, and ther are 27 senior in our parade. Please, let’s fill up those slots and SUPPORT a SENIOR! 

Not every senior attended Austin High, so in addition to her/his first name, the senior’s school, school colors, and mascot are included on the sign up form.

Thanks, Cindy Bogard and CherylAnne Campbell

The Parade begins at the Barton Hills Market on Friday May 22 at 6:30pm. There will be a lead car! The parade will proceed along the following route:

Dear Guardians of the Greenbelt,

Our first workday of the new year is coming up in 2 1/2 weeks and we hope that you’ll be able to join us!

On Saturday February 29th, we’ll be working at the Gus Fruh access from 9:00 until noon. The focus will be on the removal of invasive plants, primarily ligustrum and nandina.

We won’t be working on It’s My Park Day (March 7th) this year. We usually participate in the Austin Parks Foundation’s spring It’s My Park Day, but because we can’t disturb any vegetation on the greenbelt between March 01 and Sept 01 (due to Balcones Canyonlands Preserve restrictions designed to protect endangered birds), we’ve decided to work a week earlier and hit the invasives.

Please let us know as soon as you can if you’re able to help us that day by sending an email to stan@greenbeltguardians.org.

We’ll send out another message before the workday to everyone who registers with more details and any last minute updates.

Thanks,
Stan and Glee
