It's that time of year again: Friends of Oakhurst Park-FOOP is asking YOU, our friends and neighbors, to come together to support Oakhurst Park!
Whether you love reading a book under the beautiful oak trees, getting dizzy on the merry-go-round, or burning off some steam on the basketball court: Oakhurst Park has something for us all!
Created in 2015, Friends of Oakhurst Park-FOOP is a non-profit service organization that exists to MAINTAIN, PROTECT, and PRESERVE Oakhurst Park in perpetuity. You can be part of this huge undertaking by making a donation... BIG or SMALL... to ensure our beautiful park thrives for generations to come.
Today marks the first day of early giving for North Texas Giving Day, which runs through the BIG GIVE on September 17. Watch your email and our social media for updates and announcements on matching funds and special opportunities to GIVE BIG!

Bubble Bus Co is a VW Bus converted into a mobile bar! It serves anything from coffee and kombucha to cocktails, beer and wine. Usually we go to big and small public and private parties, but due to our current global situation, we came up with an idea to lift people's spirits while following all SD guidelines.
We take all the precautions following social distance guidelines: we wear masks and gloves that are changed multiple times throughout our visits, we avoid contact with anyone by placing the drinks on a table instead of handing them directly, we disinfect this table regularly, we make marks with chalk on the sidewalk to highlight the 6 ft apart rule, and encourage people to go for a walk while they enjoying a tasty beer (we welcome suggestions and ideas on how we can further implement and improve the social distance guidelines, please DM us with any suggestions😉).
People can tip but they are not obligated! We just want to bring some happiness and understand not everybody is in the position to tip. However, if they can and decide to tip, that money will be donated to sponsor another fellow neighborhood to get a similar experience. 😊 Follows, tags, shares, likes and comments are so much appreciated!
This month's issue of TheOak Leaflet is now online. In this month's edition, Libby Willis is recognized on the Oakhurst Walk of Honor for all of her contributions to Oakhurst and the Riverside community over the years. Also included are June's Yard of the Month, Chanin's president's message (including a shout-out to food trucks!), and Oakhurst's monthly COPS report. Don't miss the ONA "Gym" challenge and tribute to Oakhurst Golf and Country Club on page 6. And while in-person activities and events are still limited, summer is on the way!
Oakhurst "Gym" - we have seen so many people out walking these days that ONA decided to host an Oakhurst walk-a-thon challenge for the month of June!
Sign-up by sending your name to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 31st to participate in our walk-a-thon challenge. The walk-a-thon starts June 1st and ends June 30th. Participants email your total step count each week to email@example.com. The top 3 walkers will win one of three prizes; a $25 gift certificate to a restaurant to be determined; a $25 gift certificate to Academy; or a $25 gift certificate to Luke's Locker. Your steps will be posted on Nextdoor so everyone can see where they stand. This is an honor system challenge ;)
Looking forward to seeing you all out there! Good luck everyone!
