Cleanup Englewood Rec Center meeting

Tuesday..July  17, 6:30pm

at the Rec Center

Hope to meet you !

Welcome to the page of an event that is a perfect example

of the spirit of Pioneer Days

An inexpensive (FREE !) event

that everyone can take part in !

(and I don't just mean chalking)


What I mean is that Pioneer Days is

a bunch of community events put together by people in the community, for people in the community.

A community that includes you.

And guess what? That means we need you to help too. Helpers don't grow on trees you know.

We're not some hyper organized faceless group.

We're people like you who showed up to help one day and liked what we saw and then kept on helping out.

We wing it......with style

For Chalkfest we only need a few people;


people to help me put some directional signs up

people to help me set up a few pop up tents and tables

people to help me mark out the chalking squares

 people to help me sign in all the happy chalkers

people to walk those happy chalkers to a square

 people to walk around and hand out waters,

people to spread good cheer and pat all those motivated chalkers on the back

But what I'd love is for people to step up and help add to it to make it a day to remember

The perfect chalkfest to me is people of all ages

talking and working and playing together

Are you an artist? I'd love to have you walking around offering pointers to chalkers or demonstrating your art

Are you a musician?  The same here. Play a few tunes. I have a small amp if you need it.

I'm asking you, how can we make chalkfest a great memory for everyone that comes?

we're open for any doable idea

 in the spirit of Pioneer Days

Chalking Tips

Have a plan (Bring a picture or drawing)

Bring a pillow or kneepads
