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.

Friends and Neighbors:

We are in the home stretch for our 26th Annual 4th of July Parade & Celebration. This is the biggest neighborhood event of the year. It is always a blast. A successful parade requires many volunteers.

We need folks to serve on the following committees:

Set up tables at playground and serve cookies and watermelons

Decorations at playground:
String banners around the covered court and fence line.

Parade Route Decorations:
Place American flags near curb the morning of parade.

Parade Sign Up Staff & Judges for Parade Entries:
Work at the parade starting point to sign up participants and judge entries

Sound System:
Bring, set up and maintain sound system during parade and at the school ground in conjunction with generator provider.

Help set up games and supervise one game at the school.

Watermelon Wranglers:
Receive watermelons, maintain in provided tank, pick up donated ice and deliver to school grounds.
Slice watermelons on the morning of parade and serve to the hot and happy participants.

Please let me know what you’d most like to do. It’s such great fun. You’ll love being involved.
