Colony Park Day of Service
Saturday, November 1
9 am-12 pm

Join us at the Turner-Roberts Recreation Center (7201 Colony Loop Drive) for an exciting day of service! Help us plant over 100 trees that have been donated by the City to the Colony Park community. Volunteers will also be assisting with the community garden at Overton Elementary. Every helping hand counts! Sign up to volunteer here!

This event is in partnership with TreeFolks and they will be on hand to train volunteers. A tree planting demonstration will be provided, as well as all materials. Breakfast will be sponsored by Panera Bakery and lunch from Gatti’s Pizza.  It will be a day of fun and service for the whole family! We hope that you will be a part of this special day and bring your little ones to participate in the future of their community.
