Neighborhood Bulletin Board

The Fourth & Gill Woolly Bears in collaboration with the Fourth & Gill Neighborhood Organization were recently awarded a grant from the City of Knoxville Neighborhoods Dept. One of the items funded in the grant is materials to build a bulletin board for the Fourth & Gill Park. One side of the bulletin board will be devoted to Wildlife Habitat information the other side will be open for neighbors to post about lost pets, events, poems, favorite found doodles, etc…. The grants are awarded to projects that encourage neighbors to work together to improve their neighborhoods and build relationships along the way. We are putting a call out for volunteers to help build the bulletin board structure. All skill levels are welcome. We will be meeting in the park on Saturdays from 10-1 in April and Sundays from 10-1 in May. Shown is a picture of a bulletin board structure in the South Woodlawn neighborhood that we are modeling our design on. I will also include a list of materials that we will be needing. If you happen to have some of these materials laying around and would like to donate them to the project that will help us along with a very tight materials budget.
