Vintage Sale to Benefit Friends of Irving Circle

The Friends of Irving Circle are sponsoring a Vintage Sale on 6/20/2009 as part of the Celebrate Irvington activities. This will be held in Irving Circle Park from 9 am to 3 pm. The Friends of Irving Circle are asking for donations of “vintage items” such as antiques, furniture, glassware, books, tools, architectural pieces such as wood trim, windows, and doors, knickknacks, garden d├ęcor, plants, etc. NO CLOTHING PLEASE! This is your chance to donate all of those items you don’t use that are simply taking up space in your home and garage!!

The Friends of Irving Circle is a 501(c)3 organization and all of your donations are tax deductible! You will be provided with a signed receipt acknowledging your generosity upon request. All of the profits from the sale will go toward the upkeep of Irving Circle Park! Items can be dropped off at 308 South Audubon or the Friends can pick up your donations! Please call Sue at 407-9473 or Jason or Dani at 356-3375 if you need further information or require pick up of your items.

Thank you in advance!

Fountain Update

As you may have noticed, the fountain in Irving Circle is off. The pump broke down and has been removed for repairs. No time frame has been set. But we are hopeful that it will be up and running in time for our first concert on Saturday, June 20th. Just a reminder to help us keep people, pets, and trash out of the fountain to insure that the pump runs as long as possible. Thank you for your assistance!

The fountain is up and running!

The fountain in Irving Circle Park was up and running on Friday. And it is looking great! Please help us keep it running. Do not let your kids or pets in the fountain. They could damage the equipment and contribute to water loss. Plus, the surface in the fountain is slick and is a slip hazard. And there are chemicals in the water to keep mosquitoes and algae from growing. It is a fountain, not a pool!

Also, please keep trash out of the fountain. Trash can get caught in the pump system, causing the motor to burn out. If you see anyone throwing trash or sticks in the fountain, climbing into the fountain, or letting their play in the water, please ask them to refrain. If they don't, please call the Indy Parks Rangers at 327-PARK (327-7275).

Help us keep the fountain running all summer long!

Clean Up Day at Irving Circle Park

Despite the rainy days leading up to it, the park clean up day on Saturday, May 2nd turned out to be a beautiful day. Actually, the wet weather made it easier to pull weeds. Thanks to all of our volunteers who spent their Saturday helping us. As you can see from the photos and from visiting the park, the results were incredible!
