From our friends at HWEN: After two years of careful restoration, the Dragon Park Dragon is finally back! On May 20, HWEN will hold its annual Dragon Parade ending at the Park and celebrating the Dragon’s Grand Reopening. This work on the community-built sculpture will help weatherproof it for many years. The parade begins at 3 at the Triangle Park at the corner of Blair and Natchez Trace. Once the procession reaches the park, neighbors can enjoy an ice cream social, special children’s activities, and at 4:15, the first of four Dragon Music Sunday concerts. Fundraising for the Dragon continues, and neighbors can contribute at the Save our Dragon Website. https://www.gofundme.com/SaveOurDragon
The HWEN Plant Swap and Composting Event is Saturday, May 5, 1:30-4:00 pm at 407 Chesterfield Avenue. This year there will be a representative from Metro Public Works with us to share ideas about backyard composting and to raffle away two composters. So, bring the plants you are ready to share, and go home with something new for your garden! You may be leaving with a brand new composter as well.
