Happy (almost) 2023!
Before we close the books on 2022, we wanted to share some of our terrific accomplishments - which were made possible through the support of our volunteers and neighbors.
What did we all do?
We commemorated the 110th anniversary of the Titanic tragedy via a wreath-laying ceremony and park display that included stories of heroes and victims. We also hosted a gala event to celebrate our volunteers and partnership with the National Park Service.
We joined events with our SW neighbors including tabling at the Saturday Farmers’ Market and joining the SWBID’s Spooktacular Halloween Party at Lansburgh Park.
We had more engagement via 25 new volunteers, 31 new donors, and over 100 people joining our email blast news. We welcome our new Friends and continue to be grateful for our long-time Friends!
We also did a lot of work – volunteers committed over 650 hours to support the Friends. This work included 400 hours for the Titanic 110th anniversary observation and weekend events in addition to our year-round visitor counts and bench painting/landscaping work parties.
We saw more visitors enjoy the park in so many ways on a daily basis, walking, biking, and enjoying the views from the benches, as well as picnicking on special occasions like the 4th of July and watching the annual Holiday Boat Parade!
We couldn't accomplish this without you, our volunteers, partners, and donors. A big thank you as we close out and celebrate 2022. We are looking forward to seeing you in the park in 2023!
