The Lincoln Park Project at #FinCon12

We’re doing a community service event again this year at FinCon! Lasts year’s benefit for Phil’s Friends was a success and a great way to connect as a group while doing something good.

On Friday, September 7th from 3:00-5:00pm we will be doing a community service project to benefit the City of Denver, our host city for #FinCon12. Our project: add mulch, paint and improve a community park near Downtown Denver.

The park is Lincoln Park, which is located at W. 11th Ave & Mariposa St.

Buses will begin shuttling people from the hotel at 3pm. Buses will return a little after 5pm.

Members of Denver’s Parks and Recreation Dept will be on hand to coordinate.

The projects consist of:

  • Adding mulch to trees, shrub beds, area by East fence line of ball field
  • Add mulch to the area in front of the mural on the recreation center
  • Paint tables, trash cans, benches
  • Add fibar to the North playground
  • Paint the playground

You will need to bring the following:

  • Liability waiver (we will have some at registration)
  • Work gloves (we will have a few extras)
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle
  • Appropriate attire for weather
  • Clothes you don’t mind getting sealant/paint on
  • Sturdy footwear (no open-toe shoes)
  • Hat
  • All children must be supervised
  • No pets please

This will be a great opportunity to show Denver what we’re made of and to connect with each other in a positive way. Hope to see you there!
