Right now, according to weather.com and accuweater.com, it looks like Sept 16 is going to be perfect weather for Park(ing) Day in South Orange. Come out for 10 minutes or all day! We're going to be celebrating outdoor living at the parklet!
We are also getting together a few super awesome events for the day. Right now, the AMEN FB Group is partnering with us for a happy hour-ish event at 8pm! Should be lots of fun hanging out on the green with folks.
At 12:30pm, we are getting together anyone that wants to do a group video for the Push-Up Challenge for Veteran's Awareness at the parklet. The Push-Up Challenge is 22 push-ups for 22 days to keep people aware that 22 veterans commit suicide everyday (on average). We want to show our support that we are not alone and help is within reach! Check out my video doing push-ups and a few other folks I know also taking the challenge.
And Now the Work Stuff
We will need some volunteers to help setup the parklet the morning of Sept. 16th. We are planning to start the setup at 9am sharp and to be finished by 11am. Come help us roll out the green sod carpet for Park(ing) Day! If you need more info about volunteering, please hit me on email or by message.
If you want to help with building some of the awesome-designed-seating for the parklet, we will be doing that this weekend and next week. Defintitely hit me on email or by message about that. It’s BYOD (Bring Your Own Drill) for that party! Definitely hit me on email or by message if you are interested!
