Planning is underway for the 2010 Plaza District Festival in October, but we are in need of volunteeers intersted in serving on sub-committees to plan the great festival to date! It is a one day festival in the Plaza District filled with art, music, food, kids activities and more. The following are sub committees whom we need volunteers to serve by planning:
Sponsorships & Fundraising
Event Logistics (securing permits, layout, equipment, rentals)
We are really needing more help in planning to make the festival a success! This is a great way to make a big impact by volunteering on a smaller committee! Serving on a festival sub-committee is not a huge time commitment, but are looking for people who are willing to stick with their tasks until the event day! Whether you’re skilled in organization, creativity, or a jack of all trades–we need you! Contact Kristen@plazadistrict.org if you are intersted or have any questions!
Spring is near, and the Plaza District is gearing up for a beautiful season. Help the Plaza District Association “Plant the Plaza” by volunteering your time or your dollars to our spring beautification!
We need volunteers for Saturday, April 30th from 9am-1pm (2 shifts available). We will be planting, weeding and cleaning the district! Additionally, we are looking to raise funds to purchase needed materials for the event, such as soil, mulch, landscape materials and volunteer supplies. Please use the links below to donate your time or dollars…both are appreciated!!
We are thrilled our Plant the Plaza sponsor, RED DIRT PLANTS will be providing plants for our district! RED DIRT PLANTS/Guthrie Greenhouses has been a primary grower and distributor of annuals, perennials, vegetables and groundcovers since 1892. Utilizing eight acres of greenhouses and five acres of outdoor growing space, they supply top-quality plants to garden centers, farm stores and hardware stores in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas. All plants are grown locally, nurtured by resident horticulturists and accustomed to midwestern weather. By limiting the states they ship to, they’re able to deliver delicate spring and fall crops at the peak of health, freshness and consumer demand.
Plaza District is proud to partner with such a locally focused, Oklahoma owned and operated company for this event, a true testament to our philosophy of “Keeping It Local” in Oklahoma!
