Flower Mound's first community-built playground, Fort Wildflower, will be standing tall in less than two months! HOWEVER, we still need lots of help! This historical project means an opportunity for everyone to get involved, and that's exactly what we need!! Since time is of the essence,we've developed a list of 6 easy things that you can do to help. As a valued member of our community, we are asking for EVERYONE to generously consider committing to one or more of the following:
1) BRICKS and PICKETS
Bricks ($100) and Pickets ($50) can be purchased and personalized for permanent installation on-site. Buy one for yourself, family members, students, teachers,friends, your business, and more. Click here to purchase: http://www.fortwildflower.com/youcanhel ... x.htmlAlso
, you can turn in your order form(s) at Agave Azul, WinKids, or the CAC. All of these organizations are offering incentives!
Purchase a playground component! All component sponsors will receive a permanent plaque installed near their item. Click here for a list of available items or reply to this e-mail to inquire further: http://www.fortwildflower.com/youcanhel ... /index.php
Volunteering is our greatest need, and it will be fun and exciting too! Come make this project possible by joining your friends and family as we build the Fort Wildflower Playground together! Not sure how you can help? No problem.Please click here for more information on how to participate during “Build Week” September 11 – 15, 2012: http://www.fortwildflower.com/youcanhel ... index.html
We have significant needs in this area! We need items such as3/8"hand drills, circular saws, jigsaws, wheelbarrows, post hole diggers,etc. We will take great care of any tools loaned for the project by tagging them and returning them in the same, or better, condition. If you or your business can help with ANY of these items, please let us know!
5) TEXAS ROADHOUSE LUNCH 8/6
Although Texas Roadhouse is usually closed for lunch on Mondays, we are excited to announce that Texas Roadhouse in Flower Mound will be hosting a special “support the fort" luncheon on Monday, August 6 from 11 am - 2pm! Enjoy a pulled pork sandwich, fries and a drink for only $5. All proceeds will benefit the playground. Additionally, we'll have drawings for fabulous prizes too. Please help us fill the restaurant!
6) SOCIAL MEDIA
Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and better yet...post updates to your business site, e-newsletters, blogs, etc. We need EVERYONE to be involved, and your promotional assistance could help us tremendously!!
Thanks, in advance, for "SUPPORTING THE FORT!"
