Taste of East Cobb
We received a lot of good exposure and met a lot of new friends at the 2012 Taste of East Cobb. Kids enjoyed the corn hole game, Stan's dogs were a big hit and volunteers were there to answer questions about Mabry Park.
Thanks to the organizers who "mixed it up," positioning us on the same aisle as the Lassiter Jazz Band and other businesses and restaurants.
|Summertime in Cobb
The hot weather doesn't keep Cobb County residents from enjoying the great outdoors. Early mornings are especially pleasant for a relaxing stroll by yourself or with a friend (be it the 2- or 4-legged variety). For some, a vigorous jog is a great way to start or end a busy day.
With over 26 acres and a network of walking trails, Mabry Park will provide everyone with a great place to walk or jog in solitude or with a friend. Also planned are numerous benches on which you can relax and watch the world go by. It's all right there on the Master Plan
|Neighborhood Level Fundraising
Pulling off a large fundraising event can be a challenge. That's why the Friends of Mabry Park is adopting the strategy of neighborhood-level fundraising to augment the larger events.
It's really quite simple. One or two people who are interested in helping build Mabry Park organize a small fundraising event for their immediate neighborhood or even a few adjoining neighborhoods. The event can be anything - a bake sale, wine tasting, art sale, neighborhood garage sale, and more.
Please consider organizing just one event for your neighborhood. If even a small fraction of the almost 400 neighborhoods in the Mabry Park area to this, Mabry Park will become a reality very soon.
