FOWP at Eco Fest 2022!
FOWP was at Eco Fest 2022 and we had Tee shirts and post cards for sale. We raised money for the maintenance of Winnslie Parkway and got closer to our goal of $5,000 for the seasons landscaping maintenance. We also handed out a brochure describing the history of Winnslie Parkway and photos of the site. We also had free buttons and pins with the Winnslie Logo to hand out to attendees.
