Shipe Pool Opening Party and Rally -UPDATED

June 25th   4 to 6pm.

Come share a grilled burger, Casey’s Snowballs, and watermelon with your neighbors, take a refreshing dip in the pool, and learn about the city’s proposal to CLOSE SHIPE POOLS.

Our hope to is to gather a huge and supportive crowd to the pool area at 4pm next Saturday to express the public support for our neighborhood pool. This is an opportunity to make a clear statement that our neighborhood parks are essential to our experience of community in Austin. Please help spread the word about this event to your friends and neighbors. Forward the attached flier liberally.

Neighbors wishing to get information & participate in an effort to keep the pools open are encouraged to join the yahoo group “Friends of Shipe Pool ” which is spearheading numerous efforts to improve Shipe Park, including the mosaic project currently being installed on the pump house wall.

4400 Avenue G.

PS – We need volunteers in a few areas for this event – work the grill for an hour, help with set-up or clean-up, manage the food table, etc. Let me know if you’re willing to help next Saturday before, during or after the event. Thanks!
