Here’s a little recap of what you may have missed about what’s going on at West Central Park over the next couple of months. So much fun stuff at the Park this summer be sure to tell your friends to get subscribed to this news feed at aparkforus.org
We are well under way into our rip roaring Monday Movie Madness series with our third and hilarious movie coming up on July 17th. Monty Python and the Holy Grail, as funny as a movie can be, will be showing free of charge at the Park this coming Monday night at dusk. There will be lots of excellent movie trivia and games so you just can’t miss it! Hot popcorn and hot tea will be served.
On July 22nd there will be an amazing Bob Dylan tribute at 7pm. International minstrels will delight the audience with all of ‘ol Bobby’s best. Don’t miss this opportunity to reminisce with all your peers at this one of a kind and rare concert in the Park. A ten dollar donation is suggested for this event.
July 29th from 12-6:30 will be the WCP’s 4th Annual Artsplash!
This event just keeps getting better and better with a packed day of local music including MIke Burdorff, Lisa Ramsauer, Evan Price,The Hinges, The Lemmings, and the Magnificent Sanctuary Band! That’s not all! 15 local artists will be selling and displaying their fabulous creations to the tune of local music all day. You simply can’t miss this! It’s lining up to be our best yet.
West Olympia Farmers’ Market on Tuesdays from 4-7pm is another experience you don’t want to miss out on. Such a slice of vivid life with new music acts each week, and fresh ready to eat delicacies and beautiful fruits and vegetables, teff bread, raw food, flowers, crafts and so much more!! Come for the groceries, the music, the friends, and the visiting! It’s a bouquet for the senses so bring your bags and baskets and enjoy the market West Oly!
And of course as always our Sunday work party will be underway this Sunday from 10-2, and we’d love to see you there! LIght maintenance will include picking up litter, watering, edging, torching and mowing and other projects will include installing soaker hose and managing horse tail and spearmint. We have never used any pesticides or herbicides at the Park and therefore weekly weeding is a necessity. Its also a great way to share stories and make new friends. Bring your favorite spade and gloves and we’ll see you there!
Let’s all remember that this Park is only maintained by the community. The community is not some organization or some entity but people just like you and me. Just folks you know from the neighborhood are doing the maintenance and filling the board positions that the little non profit requires to survive. All of us have an equal opportunity to be a part of the care and management of this little oasis and to make sure that this Park thrives. That’s what makes this little half acre so unique. Smack dab in the middle of a high density corridor, fraught with excessive traffic, gas stations and convenience stores, we stood our ground and created a living paradise, one that we want our grandchildren to inherit. Will you come help to ensure that vision?
See you around West Oly!
