Volunteers are sought for

  • Moonbounce: shifts, taking turns helping 'crowd control' at the moonbounce.
  • Potluck: coordination, utensils, paper products, tables
  • Music: Vince will provide sound system and playlists; looking for a performer or band.
  • Shade: coordinating tent assembly and take down if we get many volunteers, would greatly welcome pop up tents to put along the sunnier parts.
  • Charities: lemonade stand and balancing demonstrations for A Wider Circle, Beth's Teal Toast to cure Ovarian Cancer
  • Grill masters: anyone want to set one up and grill?, coordinators for grilling, propane grill, BBQ chef.

Let's Plant 100 Trees!
A current and active community effort

Many of our neighborhood's trees are aging and have been damaged by recent storms. We want to ensure that our neighborhood has healthy and beautiful trees for the future. Trees decrease pollution, reduce storm water run off, offer shade and beauty, provide homes for wildlife, and increase property values. Details: see this PDF file.
Please get involved: MHCK Parks & Plants Committee or call Julie at 301-592-0749.
