POOCH PICS in the PARK! — Updated

Did your pet miss out on the last “Picture Your Pooch in the Park” event? Was your pet there last time and made so many friends that they’d love to do it again? Well here’s their chance to become the face of the upcoming Off Leash Area. Due to the resounding success of our pet pictures event last month, we’re doing it again. Bring your pooch and other pets out to Magnolia Manor Park this Saturday, April 28th, from noon to 3 to have his or her picture taken. The photos are free, but donations will be happily accepted. All proceeds will go toward the construction of the park’s Off Leash Area.  We’ll e-mail photos to the owners, as well as post our favorites to our web site and Facebook page. You may reach LuAnn Mitchell via e-mail using the “Contact Us” form for more information.

Build A Birdhouse Workshop–Updated

Great event!  Thanks to everyone!  We sold out! –Carol Burton

It looks as though spring has officially sprung around here, and with that comes the Magnolia Springfest & Art Walk. The Friends of Magnolia Manor Park will be taking part this year with a birdhouse workshop. This event was such a hit last year that we’ve decided to bring it back. Come on out for an afternoon of fun for kids, hobbyists, bird watchers, and even pets! Paints and supplies will be available if you’d like to build your birdhouse right there with us, or you may take your kit home. Stop by our table this Friday, April 27th, outside of Umpqua Bank in the Village (at 32ndand McGraw) to build your very own birdhouses. There will be four birdhouse designs to choose from, with suggested donations of $15 dollars per kit. Proceeds will go toward the park fund. For more information, please contact Susan Casey or Melanthia Peterman by clicking on “Contact Us” above.
