We will be constructing a butterfly garden and planter park bench for the residents of Congress Park. Please come out and put your building skills to work.

Come out at 8:30am for some coffee and light breakfast snacks before the work starts.

Additionally, the residents of Congress Park will be holding a back to school backpack drive and will be taking donations of schools supplies for children ages 5-11. They are taking all items and have made no specific requests.

See the supply list here (grades K-5):

If you cannot make it out, but would like to donate school supplies, please email me at
