Happy Trails & Hot Dogs at Woodland Park

The Friends of Woodland Park (FWP) is holding its annual “Happy Trails and Hot Dogs” free family event in the park on Saturday May 18th.  And once again we are holding it in conjunction with our friends/co-sponsors the White Oak Bayou Association (WOBA); who will hold their fun loving “Fish Off” event.  As in the past the free lunch provided  will run from 11AM until 1:00 PM and will include hot dogs with all the fixings, chips, plus St. Arnold’s root beer and root beer floats:  all while they last.  We will also serve lemonade and water. 

Back by popular demand FWP will have Bayou City Play as our guest and they will once again entertain children and adults alike with their inspired creative play events and materials.
 
Our guest list is expected to include Whole Earth Provisions, the Audubon Society, Wendy Wright (our remarkable community birder), and others.

Wednesday, May 8 from 6:30-8pm at Hogg Middle School is the City of Houston’s second public meeting to discuss proposed street safety improvements along 11th street between Shepherd St. and Michaux St. We encourage everyone to attend.

We will present an overview of the 11th Street proposal between Shepherd and Michaux, focusing on detailed information and design concepts for the corridor and intersections. We may also discuss alternative routes to Pecore – where no changes to traffic patterns or parking are proposed.

Lemonade Day Houston

Lemonade Day is a free, fun, experiential learning program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. It began right here in Houston, Texas in 2007. Since then it has grown from 2,700 kids to over 55,000 kids in Houston. 

The foremost objective of Lemonade Day is to empower youth to take ownership of their lives and become productive members of society – the business leaders, social advocates, volunteers, and forward thinking citizens of tomorrow. 

Each child that registers receives free materials that teach them the lessons of Lemonade Day like creating budgets, setting profit-making goals, serving customers, repaying investors, and giving back to the community. Along the way, they acquire skills in goal-setting, problem solving, and gain self-esteem critical for future success. They keep all the money they make and are encouraged to spend some, save some and share some.
