Hello to all our friends of the Earth... as in the movie “build it and they will come”, so it was with Oak Cliff Earth Day 2013. The day was as near perfect as we earth loving beings could have wanted or anticipated. Mother Nature and Mother Earth smiled down upon us and we felt the blessings of that communion.
It always warms our hearts to see so many people coming out to share in our common interest: to celebrate and commune with nature on this special day/event. The number of vendors, the number of attendees, the number of four legged friends were at an all time high. The new events this year: Pooch Smooch, the Gentle Zoo, the children's art contest, the REI climbing wall, the Agri Life trailer, etc. were well received and did a great job in helping to promote the event and we were able to contribute donations from the Country Kritters to the Blackland Prairie group and from the Pooch Smooch to SPAN, and of course our returns from previous years: Memnosyne; Green Source; Coke Buchanan Designs; Dallas County Schools; DPARD; FOCP; Dallas Parks and Recreation; Dallas County Master Gardeners to name a few are always such an integral part of what we do.
What we lack in money to build and promote, we make up for with enthusiasm and commitment and hard work and when we are in the beautiful Lake Cliff Park, it all works and comes together to make what turned out to be, simply fantastic.
Please take a few minutes to look at our sponsorship page, our vendors list and the page with our committee members listed, help us keep the event going, patronize our sponsors and vendors and give the much deserved accolades to the members and volunteers of Oak Clif Earth Day Network Inc. Also be sure to send a big thank you to the Friends of Oak Cliff Parks, they did a truly outstanding job in getting the park ready for OCED, pruning, weeding and planting with lots of TLC.
Peace, love and harmony we send your way.
