Barton Hills Neighborhood Association Sunny Luther has issued the 2013 July 4 Parade Poster, so you know the event is drawing near! Click the image above to view it online or you can print this full-size PDF version. Sunny is also seeking parade vehicles, so let her know if you can participate!

Please let me know if you have a snazzy car, truck, or other special vehicle you’d like to drive in our 4th of July parade.

We’ll need some convertibles for the Grand Marshall and other dignitaries.
Parade floats filled with joyous children are always a big hit.
Let’s make this the most stupendous parade yet.

Always,

Sunny Luther

Greenbelt Fans-

For those who signed up or were planning to work with the Greenbelt Guardians at the Homedale Trail this Saturday, we have determined that we would do more harm than good by working while the trail is so wet, since it already suffers from compaction. Much of this entry trail is in the shade, so it stays moist longer than areas of the trail exposed to the sun – and the arroyo where we planned to stabilize the walls with stonework still has water dripping into it .

There is another project at the 360 entry being led by Tommy Blackwell which still has openings for volunteers. They will be focusing on trail repair work. If you would like to work on that part of the greenbelt, you can sign up on the Austin Parks Foundation website.

The Hill Country Conservancy will be holding a lunch celebration at Zilker Park at 12:30 afterwards, and Barton Springs Pool entry will be free for volunteers. We hope lots of folks turn out to celebrate National Trails Day on this very special Austin trail.
