Mulch Day at Libby Hill

Sat Jun 29 !7:30 am
It’s never too late in the year to mulch and we need your help. Friends of Libby Hill Park and Church Hill Planters invite everyone to spread mulch on Saturday, June 29th from 7:30 a.m. to 12 Noon. Come for an hour or all morning. Then take a break with coffee, fruit, muffins and other snacks. Bring your rakes, shovels and pitchforks and mark them, so they won’t become lost. And, if you have a wheelbarrow or cart, please bring it to speed up the mulching. Thanks

Nava Life Yoga in Jefferson Park

Sat Jun 29 10:00 am
Join us for “Yoga in the Park 2013” beginning on Saturday, June 1st at 10:00AM in Jefferson Park located at 2100 Jefferson Ave. The class will be held every Saturday until August 3rd. Bring a mat, bottled water and, most importantly, an open heart. This year we are asking for donations that will go toward the support of a “community cause” suggested by class participants. The Universe has graciously blessed us with a sponsor for our fruit kabobs this year (They were a yummy, refreshing treat after practice).
