Ivy and Party

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

This Saturday, December 7th, please join the Friends of Indian River for a volunteer event to remove Invasive Ivy Indian River Park from 9:00 AM to Noon.   We'll mainly be cutting English Ivy that has grown up trees.   This will prevent the ivy from creating fruit and creating new outbreaks in the park.  Please wear closed-toe shoes, a hat and bring work gloves; we recommend long pants and long sleeved shirts. Bring pruning clippers, loppers, screwdrivers (which are amazingly useful in prying ivy off tree trunks) and/or pruning saws if you have them.  We'll have water and a snacks available.   Participants under 18 years of age must have adult supervision.  Meet at the park entrance at Rokeby Ave. and Main St. (2001 Rokeby Ave.) which is located just south of Military Highway, i.e. across Military Highway from the Fire Station.

Next Thurday, December 12th, we are having our Holiday Party at 7 PM in at the Oaklette United Methodist Church, 520 Oaklette Drive.   This will be our end of year celebration to recognize our many accomplishments, recognize our volunteers, and socialize.  Please bring a desert to share and join the festivities.  We'll have a silent auction, so you can finish some Christmas shopping too.   Please also consider bringing a donation of non-perishable food items for the Oaklette United Methodist Church food pantry to the meeting this evening. Even if you have not been to a meeting in a while or if this would be your very first meeting, we encourage you to come out and partake in the merriment.
